A Norman Rockwell Moment......


Well, maybe not exactly Norman Rockwell, but I did come across my husband giving my son a haircut out on the back deck in 32 degree weather... BRRRRRR. He came home for a visit this weekend from college. Always so good to have him home.

He chose his colors for his Fiber Trend Clogs which I hope to have done for him when he comes home for Thanksgiving. Black and Gray were his choices. With a size 13.5 foot, they may take awhile to knit!!








I decided to put myself on a bag-knitting probation until all the bags in my 'yet to be finished' basket have the finishing touches done on them. So what did I do... I cast on a hat and got that knit and ready to felt when I go to Galena tomorrow. Aaron volunteered to 'model' it for me. Doesn't he look nice? Just wished he would have smiled!

I had debated not felting it, as it covers a bad hair AND a bad make-up day.... but it is not that flattering. This was a quick knit and I am excited to see how it turns out.



Aaron's only food request for the weekend was Fajita's. Both boys LOVE them and it is their meal of choice. I usually use Skirt Steak which is the best meat for it.. but the meat locker was all out, so I had to settle for Flank Steak. Still was quite good. The marinade is very simple but very good. I use equal portions of Soy Sauce; Worchestshire Sauce and Lime juice. Marinate overnight and then grill. I also marinate thick onion slices in the same marinade and throw them on the grill as well. (They are probably my favorite part of the whole fajita.) I've also done green and red peppers as well...

Well, time for the Vikings game (which means knitting.....) so I'll make this short. Hope to have my Trellis tote and hat felted and ready to post in a couple of days.

Good bye for now...

I must say that picture of Aaron with his hat on is quite attractive. I think he should post that on his dorm door to attract the ladies...

I think you are right Julia! I'll tell Aaron of your idea. (And you'll get the credit if he meets a special someone because of it!!)
