The last four days Anne has been at my house and though we worked a lot, we also had a little time for play and a little sightseeing.
I got a lot done on Baby Knitspot’s stocking cap
while Anne kept busy in the kitchen making delish meals. She brought along all the amazing baby veggies she harvested from her garden
and turned them into a spicy Thai curry. It was so good we ate it twice!
We spent half the day Friday at the hospital and it was nice to have a buddy for all the wait time in between my appointments. Anne got a lot done on her Briar Rose Stella Twig and Leaf while I plugged along on my baby cap. Being the best boss ever she even recorded the baby’s ultrasound and threw it up on YouTube. I think she’s excited to be an auntie!
By Saturday we needed to replenish the fridge. so I thought Royal Oak Farmers Market would be the perfect solution. We found tons of goodies, grabbed some coffee and then settled back at my house for another productive work day. Our big focus for the weekend was planning the next club and we are so excited about the offerings. So much to look forward to!
We had all the best intentions of turning our morning haul into a yummy meal, but the evening got away from us. We felt a little guilty, but I had a solution. Pesto Pizza from Amici’s and a big salad! It hit the spot and we could stay focused on work. Well…until we couldn’t keep our eyes open any more.
Our last day we wrapped up our to do list and a made a little knitting progress. Sunday night Anne prepared a fabulous last supper of the weekend.
She chopped and chopped, while Buddy stood patiently waiting for any morsel to drop. Sometimes Anne would hand pick a Buddy-sized piece of veggie and hand it to him.
I think they’re best friends now!
Anne turned the veggies into an amazing vodka pasta and tossed it with spinach and black truffle gnocchi from the market.
The photo doesn’t do it justice, but my oh my was it scrumptious! A great reward for all the work we did all weekend.
This morning as Anne pulled out of the driveway she said, “next time I see you, you’ll be a mom!” Wow, how crazy is that?!
I spent the afternoon finishing up my cap. It was such a fun and easy knit!
I love the handspun look – such a vintage feel. I can’t decide if I want to add the optional tassel. Thoughts?
Though I don’t have a baby to model it yet, I figured the cantaloupe would work.
Why not? Baby Knitspot is the size of this melon right now – 5.5 pounds.
Want to make a cap of your own? Well, Megan Leslie you can! You won a $10 gift certificate in the contest. Congrats!
Now that my cap is done, I REALLY need to get focused for the Ravellenic Games – Opening Ceremonies are Friday. Go Team Knitspot!
