The tomatoes were used for BLTs last night and enjoyed with reheated green beans from the night before. Artichokes and corn are now a delicious memory. The blueberries were mostly enjoyed right out of the box, but a few found their way into a cereal bowl (Special K with Red Berries — and Blue Berries!). Mmmm. The potatoes still need purpose.
My favorite way to enjoy blueberries, though, is sprinkled with a little sugar in a bowl of cream. I like sliced tomatoes sprinkled with sugar, too. A garden-ripe, sun-warmed tomato is best eaten like an apple, sprinkled with a bit of salt — seeds and juice dripping from chin and elbow! I usually do this standing over the kitchen sink.
At left is the before-washing pic of the St. Brigid swatch, and at right, post-wash. I didn’t particularly enjoy knitting with the superwash wool. I really don’t consider myself a yarn snob, but I do like a yarn that feels good. It did improve visually and texturally after washing. I’ll use it for a future project, but not St. Brigid. Um, yes, that is a mis-crossed cable…
Yesterday, I received the color cards I ordered from Beaverslide Dry Goods and they are being taken into consideration. I know I’ll use their wool for something!
In Cromarty news, I knit about a half-dozen rows last night. I’m anxious to complete a full repeat of Chart D. I’m still lovin’ it!
