This and That

Had a good Saint Paddy's Day: Purchased a corned beef "flat" and cooked it in my new cast iron dutch oven in the oven with the enclosed spices. Cooked for 2 hours and smelled the kitchen up wonderfully. Then I sliced it, and made Grilled Reuben sandwiches on dark rye with provolone cheese and sauerkraut - oh sooooo good.

Re-blocked my Olympics project - the Grounded Scarf and it turned out much better after the wet-blocking. The lace is spread out nicely now.

Also finished, blocked and tied in the ends on my One-Row Scarf for the Red Scarf Project this Fall.

Today I received my sock package from the NH Knitting Mama "Simple Pleasures" sock club. Still drooling over the yummy yarn, beautiful drawstring bag by Donna Dahl, PDXKnitterati pattern for ZigZag Lace socks, chocolate and Wow.

OTN, I am making this beautiful Victorian cloche hat designed by Tina Sanders (AZKnitting), and also worked on the same designer's Marmee lace cowl in some beautiful NHMama yarn.
