Rainy Tuesday

Hi All,

Another rainy day here in Eastern PA.  I'm ok with that - just get it out of the way because Saturday we leave on vacation!  Good weather, please, while we are camping.

No yarny pics today -  I will save that for tomorrow's Unraveled post.  I have, though, made it to part II of Match and Move and am now able to see how the shape is changing.  Still a lot to knit and it is just plain old knit, knit, knit.  192 stitches on the needles now and that won't change (whereas in Part I it was increasing by one stitch every row).  Not a huge amount compared to some shawls/wraps, but it takes some time to knit.

Instead I'll show a salad from last night.  The dark red/maroon colored lettuce is Red Romaine from our garden!  Yay for the first garden produce in some time.

We had that along with spaghetti and clam sauce.

I skipped yoga last night and instead started to pull some clothes together for vacation.  I always over-pack, but at this time of year we really could have any kind of weather.  We plan/hope to do a lot of hiking and exploring.  Checking out Ravelry, there are no yarn shops within 50 miles of the various places we will be!  Bummer.  Next time we/I need to do a better job of choosing vacation spots - lol.

Usually I post pictures of Tyg stretched out.  Here is a cute one of him curled tightly.  Love his paws over his face.

This is where I normally sit in the kitchen to knit.  However, if Tyg is inside, the minute I stand up, he jumps onto the chair and (in his way) dares me to make him move. 

Well, a busy day ahead at work.  Hope everyone's week is going well.


  1. Isn't it great when you can eat your own garden bounty again! I hope you have good weather for your camping adventure. XO

  2. Tyg is so sweet - I would not have the heart to move him either! lol
    I hope you have great weather for your vacation. I look forward to your hiking pics.
    Your salad looks/sounds delicious.
    Have a good day.

  3. Hooray for eating from your garden in April already! Fingers crossed for good weather for you. If you can't have yarn, you at least deserve nice weather!

  4. The lettuce looks delectable! Hope the week progresses well in prep for vacation!

  5. Good choice, planting romaine. Here in NEO, the price has doubled for it. That was to be expected.

    That Tyg! He is just like my marmie, Piper. The moment I sit and pull my knitting caddy close, he jumps into my lap to prevent any such thing.

    Have a wonderful vacation.

  6. Aw Tyg. Our Rosalyn always slept that way before or during rain!!! You will have a great trip! Ouch, no shops within 50 miles of the path?

  7. Have a fun trip! Bummer about no yarn shops though.

    Maybe Tyg likes sitting in the warmth of your spot. You got it all cozy for him.

  8. Do have a great vacation...seems hard to believe that the vaca season is starting. Sorry no yarn shops...the money you save you can spend at home. Enjoy!

  9. Camping and produce already? That sounds very nice.
    Cats are SO funny!

  10. Mmmmm....your salad looks heavenly. I just had a bagged salad for dinner and it was awful. I want a do over.

  11. the salad looks delicious and how wonderful you're already harvesting from your garden! hope this week goes smoothly at work so you can get fully into that vacation frame of mind. it's gonna be all blue skies and sunshine, I'm sure!

  12. Garden produce already? Enjoy every morsel.

    I've always overpacked for trips. I hate not having something when I need it. It does make for heavy suitcases, thiugh.
