Three random things for today's Three on Thursday:
1. I lied. Between mouthfuls of chocolate covered almonds, I managed to eat some Memorial Day dessert. Thankfully it didn't take much persuasion to talk Sarah into making the Strawberry Blueberry Trifle. We did have trouble finding something to put it in. I'm going to have to add trifle dish to my shopping list because she ended up using a giant, clear mixing bowl. No matter how it was served, it was delicious and she will be making it again.
2. I've finally reached the lace section on my Scottish Highlands shawl. There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this project. The pattern is written so that you have the option of A) two different sizes, B) knitting the shawl in one solid color or using two colors, C) with or without eyelet rows, and D) the lace has both charts and written instructions. Obviously I'm doing the two color version with eyelets. It has been great. Just when I get sick of garter stitching, there's a change of color and an eyelet row. Then when I got sick of garter in general, I hit the lace section. I Love, love, love this pattern and unless something goes Horribly wrong with the rest of the lace instructions, I plan to knit quite a few more of these.
And then there's the yarn. Oh. My. Goodness!!! I am obsessed with this yarn from Cozy Color Works. It is SO soft and squishy and I could easily spend $10,000 Sandy's shop. I want All the colors. Heck, I want all the skeins of all the colors.
