A Little Peek

Just a quick look at what I'm working on. The yarn's some vintage superwash from my stash. You might recognize the cables. Any guesses? I'm hoping to have this project finished by mid-week. It's getting cold!

It's also getting harder to catch the sun for photos, one of the many drawbacks of daylight savings. Suddenly it's dark and I haven't even had dinner yet. Yuck. The only upside is the motivation to knit a little faster to stave off the cold, if not the dark. What do you have on the needles to keep toasty?

Farmers' Market

It's been a little slow around here the last few weeks. Most of my time has been spent cleaning and trying to get MFA application stuff together. Actually, that's what I should be doing right now...

Me and Xenia still found some time to hit the farmers' market Monday afternoon, and as always it was a great time. It was also the last outdoor market of the season, so we tried to make the best of the lovely weather.

Here I am, wondering if I want these beets. Do even I know what to do with beets?

Of course I do! Pose with them!

Now I have to go figure out what to make with them, and also the tub of creme fraiche I bought. Anyone for borscht?
