I had a lovely evening.
We had friends over for St. Patrick's Day dinner. It was your basic Irish American fare. Corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, soda bread, with a choice of Guinness, Miller Light, or Kaliber, the NA made by Guinness. For dessert I served coffee, tea, and bread pudding.
After our guests left, I got in a few rows on my latest knitting project -- the Lilac Leaf Shawl from Knitted Lace of Estonia. I'm only half-way through the border -- and I've had to rip out and restart a few times -- but I'm enjoying it. (I don't feel bad about having to re-start the project twice because Stephanie Pearl McPhee had to start over eleventy-four times, and she about 243 times the knitter I am.) I'm knitting it in Lacey Lamb lace weight in a dusty rose color. Someone I am very fond of has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, so I am knitting this shawl as a gift for his wife and using the knitting as an opportunity to pray for my friend's well being.
Tomorrow morning, before I go to work, I'm going to put a lifeline in on row 30. Then I know I won't run the risk of having to rip the whole thing out.
Pics another day. It is late and I'm tired.
Happy Spring, dear ones!
