hardly any knitting yesterday—instead i bring you . . . cake.
i spent the day scurrying around finishing up last minute details, packing patterns, and cooking a nice dinner for our west-coast visitor (which, let’s face it, was mostly an excuse to get to the cake).
i picked kim up in the early evening
we went to baggage to claim her luggage and the silliness began. this woman can talk, let me tell you. and we have so much fun.
then we headed home to have a good supper and pack (man, will i ever learn to get that done ahead of time).
i showed kim all the shawls that i knit over the summer while i packed them up for the trunk show i’m bringing to new mexico next week—she hadn’t seen most of them in person, since it’s been a year since she last visited.
then we ate
i made pasta with fish and garden vegetables, and we had salad picked just hours before.
kim loved the salad and wasn’t at all distracted by the cake.
david of course was completely cool about it—
but we all know what he was really thinking about (kim brought him some goodies from see’s and some french truffles—does she know my husband or what?). in fact we were joking that we’d leave with all this nice food in the fridge, and when we come back it will all still be there but the chocolate will be completely gone.
i know . . . you came to see knitting and all i’m giving you is glam girls jet-setting off to sheep and wool shows. but there will be much to see, feel and share where we’re going and i’ll take lots of pictures.
i’m leaving my laptop home (executive decision; there won’t be internet access where we’re staying) but i’m taking my iPhone with me and hopefully i’ll be able to blog on it from public places around the catskills. if i can’t, i’ll catch up with you when i return.
have a great weekend!
