A day of rest!

That's what Labor Day is and I am using it for it's intended purpose! Here it is almost noon and I'm in my pj's! I have to go to Roots and Ulta then I'm stopping at Weis and getting some Filet Mignon. I promised DH we would grill some for dinner. We rarely eat red meat, but when we do, it is the good stuff! I got a big bunch of fresh asparagus to go along with it! Yum!

I indulged myself and bought the new Zephyr pattern called Juliet.

I need a little off white cardigan and this is perfect! It takes either bulky weight yarn or worsted weight double stranded. I really dislike using double stranded yarn. I found that Cascade Venezia comes in two weights and the heavier one will be perfect. Venezia is 70/30 Merino/Silk. It feels like heaven. They have a color that is very slightly off white so I think I will do that. I have some fantastic antique bakelite buttons which I'll have to look through. Otherwise I may need to make some neat fimo ones. This one will be a really quick knit since it is on size 10.5 needles and seamless.

I did accomplish one home improvement task that I've been waiting to do--I installed the between the glass pleated shades in my French doors. We had some trashy mini blinds hanging on the doors and the cats had literally destroyed them. We get the bright afternoon sun through those doors so we really needed something. The installation was a little tricky but I was pleased with the result plus they match the shades on the windows!

I guess I should go shower and do my shopping!

Bushism of the day:
"The administration I'll bring is a group of men and women who are focused on what's best for America, honest men and women, decent men and women, women who will see service to our country as a great privilege and who will not stain the house." --George W. Bush, Des Moines Register debate, Iowa, Jan. 15, 2000

Oops, George. I don't think you accomplished that one!

Mikey enjoys a quick game of spinny!


  1. don't you love juliet? i saw it the other day and practically screamed! i hope to fit this one into the rotation but i currently have the zephyr gals tree jacket on the needles. i love that one too. i'mm of to look up the amazing yarn you're using and maybe i'll do the same!

  2. I love Juliet too, and also dislike double stranding yarn. I also am not big on red meat, but I will do a nice filet every so often. Those shades look really nice.
