Herb Garden and New Yarn

I cooked a simple pasta sauce last night, using canned tomatoes (no, my tomato plants have not borne fruit yet), some local goat cheese from the Farmers’ Market, MY PARSLEY, AND MY BASIL!!!!  I was so happy.  It was a clean, fresh sauce.  It was a big hit with DB.  It’s so convenient to just walk out into the backyard and use my own herbs.  I know where they are, and where they’ve been.  If you don’t grow your own, you should try it!  🙂

On the yarn front:
I’ve got some Araucania Patagonia IN STOCK now!  Here is a linkee if you’d like to lookee:
Araucania Patagonia  I have knitted the “original” yarn studio pattern with this, Going to Patagonia, and I wash mine IN THE WASHING MACHINE, and dry it flat.  Very convenient, considering it’s hand-dyed!

Have a Happy Monday!!!!

Checking in…

I notice the KAL isn’t very active at the moment. Are we still loving SKIF?

I love my Zena, but it’s put away for the season.

Admittedly, I put aside Neptune because the idea of warmer weather and knitting with mohair didn’t appeal to me.

But, I’ve been thinking that perhaps I should concoct a summertime intrepretation of one of the patterns. Any ideas?
