...by finishing my Penelope Poncho. This super-bulky poncho (or as my son commented, "You're knitting a Snuggie!") was meant to be a stand-in for the blanket that I've been "wearing" in my drafty home office. I finished it today, just as the temperature skyrocketed to nearly 50 degrees--which feels like 80 degrees in comparison to the past 6 weeks or so.
I've also been making nice progress on my Manos Autumn Throw, with the discipline that I work on it every Saturday at Knitting Group and continue with a few extra rows during the rest of the weekend. I hope to have it finished by next winter!
Now that the poncho is done, I'll cast on my second GAP-tastic Cowl to use up the yarn I had left from the Shalom Cardi. I still need to determine, based on where I am on that, what project I will take on our forthcoming trip to California. Two long flights with ample knitting time!
In foodie news, we had a wonderful dinner at Quality Italian in NYC this weekend while my son was home for spring break. Just as delicious the second time.
Tomorrow I will try my next crockpot recipe, a Creole Shrimp dish from The Southern Bite. Will report back on how it turns out!
