I hope you all had a great Saturday. I know I did!
Because we were going to have smoked ribs for dinner, I made BBQ beans, onion/garlic/bacon green beans and for dessert, peach cobbler! This was my first go:

As Rachael Ray says: "Yum-O!" or "Delish!" I was quite pleased with the results! It almost looked too pretty to dig into. :)

Are you a "sense-able" knitter?
Do you enjoy knitting mostly when you have a lot of sensory elements working for you?

I noticed lately that I enjoy knitting a lot in nature (ok, and in PJ's!). Today, I lit the tiki-torches at dusk, to get rid of those darn mesquiters, and continued knitting with the cool breeze running through my fingers and cheeks, while smelling the tiki flames, and savoring the beautiful view of our block's pond, and mostly the sweet water symphony that only comes at night: singing frogs and crickets. My mind is usually too busy to really meditate, but this night was the closest I felt I could come to it. It was just too peaceful.

Oh, did I forget taste? You should probably take a closer look at the picture. Mmm, Kahlua and cream. :)

I was particularly knitting up these suckers the whole time. The first one *finally* almost has its pair. To tickle my fancy even more, they wholly match. Their stiping is exactly perfect to one another. I couldn't ask for anything better. Thanks Lana Grossa for the pretty colors & stripes!
Finally.... I finished spinning! Woo-hoo! It's just like Noro Yarn. I know what you're all thinking..."what-the!" But I must ask, why should I wind my yarn into a boring ball? It looks better like a fruit. Ha ha. After all, it's named "Cranberry-Apple."
Another crazy view.

Did you take the "knitter's poll" yet? Scoll down 2 posts before this.

Upcoming: an update on "Ripples" Reading Afghan, a finished Lana Grossa sock ("Arctic") w/ possible pattern attached, and... maybe a new WIP started, peut-etre?
