Trying to catch up
I went home last weekend for my cousin’s wedding. The drive (6-7 hours each way) is long. But the trip was worth it. My cousin is the closest thing I have to a brother. We grew up together. He scared away all potential dates in high school. If I hadn’t moved away, I might still be single. Seeing him with his new wife was so special. I wish them all happiness.
Unfortunately, I’ve spent this whole week feeling like I’m running behind. I guess that’s from not really having any time off. I still managed to get some things accomplished. Yesterday, I made Kale, Sweet Potatoes, and Squash soup from Vegetarian Soups for All Seasons: Beautiful Vegan Soups and Stews for Every Time of Year by Nava Atlas. Delish! I followed it up today with some Cheezy Quackers. And this was my lunch:
Here’s a closeup:
I also worked up a swatch for IK’s Tilted Duster in my Dragon Berroco Peruvia. It took forever. I forgot to check my Options needle before I started. One end was a US 9 and the other needle was a US 7. D’oh! Despite the challenges, the swatch was completed and washed. The color is a bit greener than this pic:
Come Saturday night, I’m casting this puppy on. Thankfully, I listened to the WEBS podcast with Norah Gaughan before starting. She convinced my to go with the medium size instead of the large. I worried that it would be too small since the medium is my bust measurement. But I will trust Norah. Because I think 4 extra inches just won’t work.
