a night out on the town

and some knitting...


yup yup. i am LOVING this top-down thing. for sure. and it has a STEEK. man oh man. it is quite liberating to not really be using a pattern. just the guidelines. and using about 30 balls of recycled, dyed yarn. haha. it is the softest stuff! and bulky (3sts/inch) so it is going really fast.

then we have my delicious dinner:

Salmon cooked on a cedar plank, smothered in BBQ sauce, with mashed potatoes and corn stuff. oh goodness. the size and taste was worth the price ($19) and really, it was quite reasonable. for two dinners, a cosmo, glass o wine, liquored up coffee and a latte, plus tip and ridiculous city tax, total was $83. and SO GOOD.

and the happy couple:

Eep! Steeking... you are a braver woman than I. I know, I know I don't have the self control yet, nor the sanity to survive attempting a steek. :P

I am a fan of the top down patterns. I wish more designers made use of it. Looking forward to the finished garment.
