Oh Cables, How I Have Missed Thee!
I have officially started my dad's vest- pattern by me, cables by Elsebeth Lavold. And I am in love, again, with cables... which is good as the next few projects I've got in mind all involve cables of some kind. :) It's so satisfying to see how quickly I'm knitting this up... I might even manage to finish (or mostly finish) before I leave for Seattle in August (which, frighteningly enough, is less than 3 weeks away!)
I didn't get too much knitting done yesterday- after I got home from work (early, since I am not too motivated to stay the whole day for these last 11 days!), I took a wonderfully relaxing and envigorating bike ride, and then a blissful shower. I must admit, I'm a shower girl... I've been known to routinely take 2 showers a day, and sometimes more. But the best showers ever are either the ones you take right after exercising, or the ones you take in the winter because you're so cold you can't feel your toes.
Anyway, after the shower, I knit a bit on the vest (hmmm, I'll have to call it something better than that!), and then walked with S. to the local fancy yuppie organic market for some fabulous steaks and corn and carrots and potatoes. We grilled, boiled, chopped, steamed... and DAMN was it good! Yummy yummy yummy. Although we didn't eat outside, we did grill outside, and I found out this morning that I am possibly as yummy as a steak... at least to mosquitos. Among several others, I have a bite on the bottom of my foot, and it is unbearable, even with hydrocortizone. Grrrrr.
