It’s not actually a full fledged funk but I’ve definitely been a bit out of it this week. I also had a bit of perspective thrown at me. Earlier this week I’d planned to blog about a moth (a very beautiful moth) that had taken up residence in the hallway of my building. I was going to title the post, Warning: Not For The Faint Of Heart but then I remembered my friend JL and her family and the post suddenly seemed beyond ridiculous.
This is a picture of her family’s home in Iowa. Do I need to say anymore? My heart is broken for her. I’ve linked to her blog above….if you have a moment please go “visit” her and show my JL some love.
Honey, as EZ says…”Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises.”
I’ve also been knitting, alot and I’ll have some stuff to show next week. In the meantime I decided it was time for more baked goods. That’s my comfort cure-all.
CREAMY LEMON SQUARES…yummmmmmmmmm
Aside from a funk fix, I was just in the mood for something sticky and sweet… Summer also starts tonight about 8pm-ish so this is also my welcome to Summer. Nothing says it like lemony sweetness. Did that sound like a commercial? Sorry….
I also did a little shopping. That’s an even better pick-me-up. Though in the long run both of my “fixes” have the potential to cause much damage, to my waistline and my wallet.
But I couldn’t resist this. I love this yarn company.
Araucania Atacama, 100% Alpaca, Color #528, 110 yds x 2…It’s so soft and amazing.
That’s my “art” shot (don’t laugh).
Here’s the eye candy shot. I don’t think either picture really shows all the variations in color but trust me it’s so gorgeous. I’m test-knitting a pattern and if I like the results then I’ll try it in this yarn. We’ll see.
Carolyn, if you’re reading this, yes some of the lemon squares are headed your way. My friend and I have a yarn play date today…Can’t wait.
JL, there’s some for you too sweetie…you need them most of all. See you Sunday (they should still be good by then).
Have a great weekend, a safe and happy first day of Summer and happy knitting everyone.
