Good Blustery Morning!
Whew! It is SO windy outside. I heard on my drive into work that we were having tropical storm force winds. Let me assure you, our temperatures are not even close to tropical. It is just around 30 outside...there is snow on the radar map all around us - fairly close - but luckily nothing right here. But those winds...they could knock you off your feet! I am cozy warm though in fleece leggings, boots and a beautiful cashmere sweater that was given to me...gosh! probably 25 or more years ago!
Last night I made a vegetable dish that my Mom always fixed at Thanksgiving - scalloped onions and peppers. Basically you just saute some bell peppers (sliced) and onions (sliced) in butter. Pour them into a casserole dish and then make a white sauce and add a boat load of cheese to that. Pour over the veggies and bake in a moderate oven (325) for 30-45 minutes. Fletch loves this dish...Colin doesn't eat cheese, so we never have it at Thanksgiving these days. I enjoyed it, but I guess I'm not used to such rich food because I did not feel so good later on....
But, I did manage to finish the first mitt for my brother in CO:
Again, this is made using leftover Lopi yarn from the sweater I knit myself last year. The colors are hard to see in this photo, but the bottom part is green and the top a kind of burnished gold. The second mitt will be reversed. I hope to get that started tonight.
Each day this week I've brought my sock knitting to work (and my book), but so far I have not had a chance to knit (or have a proper lunch hour). I'm hoping that changes today. It should be fairly quiet.
Mid-week and I am looking forward to the weekend! Hope your week is going well.
