A Quickie

I am going to attempt a drive by posting so I'll try to make this quick.

I finally finished the scarf for Mr. Larj's nephew. I can't say that I'm really crazy about the yarn that I used but it's superwash and he's a college kid. I found it to be heavy and slippery to work with. Usually I can do cables without a cable needle, not with this stuff, way too slick.

I am also making progress on the clap which I had the chance to work on during Saturday's Knitterpalooza in Royal Oak. It was a rainy crappy day but it didn't deter the knitters from coming out and staying for most of the day. Kudos to Amby for putting it all together and making the most of a soggy day! Thanks to Amby I also have a new fav Sushi place, Noble Fish. Not only is the quality awesome but the price can't be beat. I went a little crazy in the grocery store. One thing that I can't recommend enough is Japanese mayonaise. If you ever get the chance to do a taste comparison you'll never go back to the regular strore bought stuff.

I got these lovely roses at TraderJoes on Friday. Aren't they gorgeous. Just love that store.

As for the rest of my week I am gearing up for my two mini-vacations that are pending not next week but the week after. I can't wait. I get to see Apocalyptica TWICE! In the span of one week. I'll also be touring D.C. with my friend Cyndi. It'll be interesting to see what the political climate is in our nations capitol during this volitile election year.

Everyone have a great week!!
