Rambling Rose

Rambling Rose

I am halfway done with the last half of "Rambling Rose" from Rowan magazine. It is a fun knit. I bet you guys thought that I didn't knit anymore. I do. I will take pictures of the other stuff that I knit after I send it on to the person I knit it for (it is a gift). This sweater is really fun to knit and I just have half of one side and two short sleeves to do. It is for Annie. It is out of cotton glace and I thought I would hate knitting with it but I didn't.

On the other side of knitting news things are the same. I am waiting to see what happens to the shop. In the meantime, I have made goat cheese, dehydrated tomatoes, made 2 batches of sour dough (with my own starter that I started from scratch mind you) and generally keeping myself amused to keep my mind of of everything else.

Evan and stuff

We took Evan to Los Angeles with all his stuff and now we are home. We went wine tasting while Evan was here and we had a really good time. It has been a couple of busy weeks.

An Angel

A hummingbird got trapped in our house. Evan took a picture of it and it looks like an angel.


The bird did get out of the house unharmed.

Ho hum

Nothing new going on here. Evan is in town and we have been hanging out. It is great having a kid home again.

No Knit Night tonight at the shop. I will be closing at 5:30 to go spend some time with the kid.

Tomorrow is wine tasting!! I will report back.

I lied. I do like fruit and summer isn't so bad. Brigid wanted me to teach her how to can her mothers peach chutney. We spent an evening peeling peaches and making some.

Wine wine wine!


Annie and I were invited to bottle wine for our favorite winery. Eric Ross rocks! We went down there and bottled a late harvest cab and a port. We were rewarded with a bottle of each and lunch. We also were initiated as winos.
