Sometimes you knit a project that takes as much time to figure out exactly how to wear it as it does to knit it.
For me, this has been the case with the mezquita-shawl.
The subtle color changes in this Mad Hatter yarn by Wonderland made me want to knit something that would be simple enough to showcase the color, but with enough variety in the pattern to keep things interesting. Which it was.
Other things that have occupied me of late include making a new shaved brussel sprouts salad with a dressing of lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and Dijon mustard along with the requisite salt and pepper. In addition to the brussel sprouts there was a small chopped shallot, toasted pine nuts, and grated pecorino romano cheese.
I used to think roasting was the only way to go with brussel sprouts. I was wrong. This is what you should do with them in the spring and summer. At least once every few weeks. They are the perfect thing for lunch. Especially accompanied by a side of hard boiled easter egg.
In the garden the lilacs are about to take over front and center in the "oh me, oh my" category.
Let me not neglect to mention that I also turned the page of my calendar today.
Hope your weekend has been filled with equally exciting events.
I am not yet convinced that this is the way to go with the scarf. I will require a consultation with Ann, Mary Joan, and Lauren first. In the meantime, the Harvey boys tell me it's marvy. And I always trust their judgement.
