endings and beginnings
posted by soe 11:52 pm

I finished two scarves for the Food and Friends drive last week.





To celebrate, I started a sweater. I’m about a third of the way done with the back panel.

I bought the yarn way back at the Maryland Sheep and Wool. It’s Peace Fleece sportweight in Georgia Rose, which I’m knitting up into the drop-sleeve Everyday Cardigan.


Suzanne is knitting the same sweater, but in a foresty shade of green. If we don’t finish them in time to wear them this winter (D.C. currently is having its coldest temperatures in a decade), we hope to have them done in April or May, when pink and green are two of the Project Spectrum 2.0‘s colors.

full weekend
posted by soe 12:23 am

After yesterday morning’s battle with spammers, the blog is feeling much better. I’ve upgraded a couple of things and added a couple of things at Rudi‘s suggestion, so now we should be back to normal.

We spent yesterday afternoon out in Virginia, which, as you know by now, means I spent a lot of money. But I bought some cute clothes and some cute shoes (pictures to come later in the week), so I guess that’s good. We also stopped by Panera Bread for lupper where, in addition to getting to sit next to a fireplace, I also had the most beautiful cup of cocoa. It was served in a giant cappuccino mug and topped with a mountain of whipped cream with a trail of chocolate sauce leading to the summit. Exquisite.

Today we slept in, wandered to the farmers’ market, and got to chat with our friend, Erik. Then Rudi went out for a bike ride (crazy!) while I played with Dance Dance Revolution. We finished the night with a trip to our friends Pat and Heidi’s to watch the Super Bowl with them, their three darling kids, and our other friends, Jerry and Dan.

I’m really not ready for the weekend to be over. But I guess all good things must come to an end, right? And if Monday never came, neither would Monday night, which offers the best tv of the week.
