Week in Photos
The past week has had its share of highs and lows. The big low is that I have been somewhat sick with something. It’s a respiratory-digestive crud. Dr. M prescribed a Benton Park Swizzle for what ailed me. It’s much like a mojito except it has a float of Fernet Branca. Fernet Branca is a Italian digestivo amaro or digestive bitter. I didn’t think it was that bitter straight; it did have a eucalyptus taste. I don’t think it made me better but rather made me care less that I was sick. It is a pretty drink:
Due to aforementioned crud, I only got my March sock barely started. It’s the second Roger sock. I love BFL wool for sock yarn.
M found morel mushrooms growing in our oregano. After an internet study, he claims these are real morels and not poisonous. If you never here from me again, you will know he was wrong, or he has “done me in.”
I bought two lovely bunches of dutch iris at the Sacramento Farmer’s Market Sunday morning. And my gerbera daisy is in bloom.
And the best thing this past week was that I won a skein of Wollmeise from The Loopy Ewe! I’m thinking a shawl, as the yarn is quite fine, although it looks pretty durable so socks are an option if I’m in the mood for tiny needles. The color is Rhabarber, which is German for rhubarb. Very aptly named in my opinion. I’m delighted to have won!
I hope this coming week is less crud and more knitting.
Have a great week!
