And There is Knitting
Here is my Duchrow-centered lap blanket in all of its orange-y glory.
I'm not generally an orange person. If I had to name this colorway, it would be something like "If the maple trees can do it, I can, too!"
I damp-blocked it fairly gently, and between blocking and the seed stitch border, the corners now lay nice and flat.
I had a hard time getting a good picture. It's as dark and gray out as this! (The weather warmed up, turned the snow slushy, and now it's raining and drizzling).
I'm happier with the squaring of the circle than my pointy-headed hearts, but I'm not so unhappy with the hearts that I would frog them.
And in a completely grasshopper-minded topic lurch, guess what, fellow Agatha Clay, Girl Genius fans! Our son is building clanks:
And sharing the spotlight, his father made placki (potato pancakes) and bigos (hunter's stew) for supper last night, and I am eating leftovers:
The bigos is based on one of the recipes in Polish Heritage Cookery, by Robert and Maria Strybel. I gave this cookbook to my husband as a present one year, and I have definitely reaped the rewards in tasty eating!
