Day 3 (Monday)
No problem staying ahead of schedule. I never thought I'd enjoy lace knitting, but look at me now - I'm even using a lifeline just in case! Overnight I had recorded hours of Olympic curling action and I was set! (I love having a DVR- it's like TiVo, but no phone line necessary). So a few hours later (and an amazing game between the USA Men's Curling team and Norway) I was wrapping up my 4th full repeat.
Day 4 (Tuesday - Valentine's Day)
So, unexpectedly I got a little bit of knitting done yesterday therefore keeping my lead. Granted it was only 1/2 a repeat, but look at the progress. What's that? Those cute little trinkets on my Baltic Sea Stole? Well, those would be adorable little pendants I had been wanting that M gave me for Valentine's. They are from this fantastic art glass maker, Happy Owl Glass. They have an animal menagerie with different animals pictured on these little squares. Someone at work had a few of these pendants and I was hoping to have some of my own. I love them!
Then, while at work , M came into my office with these lovely roses. They are the most gorgeous shade and they are so very fragrant. Roses are my favorite and of course M knew he couldn't go wrong with these:)
To celebrate Valentine's Day, M and I went to a favorite Evanston restaurant, Koi. They have outstanding maki rolls. The sushi chef was doing a special roll for Valentine's called the Sweetheart roll. It was gorgeous and the taste was perfection. Every 2 pieces of maki roll were formed to create a heart when placed together. They were wrapped in pink tuna and salmon. Mmmmm....sushi! Afterwards we walked over to Ethel's Chocolate Lounge and picked out a couple chocolates for later. After we got home I had a chance to knit a little while enjoying the lovely chocolates.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful Valentine's day too - how did you celebrate?
