Tomato Soup and Goldfish
As a kid, one of my favorite lunches was tomato soup. Mm-mm. For the past few days I've had a nasty cold. So, what's the best way to make myself feel better? Tomato soup and Goldfish of course! (Suddenly I've got Maurice Sendak's Chicken Soup With Rice going through my head! As sung by Carol King of course!) It's not homemade tomato soup or anything, not Campbell's either. It's one of those "fancy pants" new organic-soups-in-a-carton that all the grocery stores have these days. Not a bad lunch for a girl feeling a little under the weather.
I decided I should get a few scarves done for Think Pink. After searching my yarn stash, and realizing that I didn't have any appropriate pink yarn, I dashed off to my favorite LYS. I was lucky enough to find some perfect choices in the 50% off bin! So, I'm knitting two scarves on some big needles, so I can make the October first deadline.
This is Tahki Bunny Print, color 029, on US size 10 needles. I'm doing a simple broken rib.
I'm also working on a leaf lace pattern in Rowan Cashsoft DK, color 506 on US size 10.5. I'm doubling the yarn for speedier knitting.
In stash enhancement news, I broke down and placed an order from Dave, of Cabin Cove. I've been eying his yarn for awhile and just couldn't resist! They are as lovely in person as they are in his on line shop!
