You'd have to be living in a hole not to have heard of the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics. If you are living in a hole, get out of it and get on over there now to join the over 1800 knitters that are already signed up.
My challenge will be the Black Sheep Booga Bag, which will end up as a birthday gift for Koko's keeper, who accompanied me on a rainy trip to Lettuce Knit this afternoon. She and another friend have been bit by the knitting bug and are signed up for one of the Lettuce's Intro to Knitting courses. (Why they felt they had to keep this a secret from me is a mystery, but it's irrelevant, they'll be knitting. That's all that matters.)
After purchasing our respective yarns, we headed on to Canoe for our Winterlicious reservation, and Oh. My. God. it was GOOD! I had:
Winter Squash Bisque with Sage Crisps & Spiced Turkey Confit
Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Celeriac Hash & Glazed Creemore Urbock
Ginger Toffee Pudding, Bourbon Brown Butter Sauce & Candied Ginger Ice Cream
Worth every penny.
There's progress on the Florence Scarf, but not enough to warrant another picture at this point. Cheers for now!
