I often feel bad about the pictures I post on my blog, in that either I don't post ANY, or the ones that I do post aren't as Brooklyn Tweed-y as I'd like them to be. It bothers me so much, in fact, that when I actually HAVE pictures to share, I tend to hoard them so I can spread them out over multiple posts, so that y'all will have something to do besides read my silly ramblings.
I'm very tempted to do that tonight as well, but you know what? Let's just go with it. I've got a CRAP load of eye-candy for you today, and I'm just going to lay it ALL out there. We're going to stuff ourselves, we're going to over-indulge. Shall we?
This morning Phil and I took the kids to a local purveyor of all things garden-y(I don't really want to call it a greenhouse or nursery, this woman sells annuals and perennials and vegetables from the old barn beside her house) where you can also pick your own raspberries. It's something I don't recall ever doing as a kid myself, and it was the first time we've taken the kids. It's literally a 5 minute bike-ride away, it was a nice morning, and we just thought "Why not?"
Can I just say? I don't think there's anything better than berries right off the bush, do you? The kids certainly didn't seem to think so!
Phil seemed to agree with them too! TeeHee!
Contrary to the ginormous berries we buy at the supermarket, these babies did NOT stay on our counter for long after we got home! Nom nom nom...
After lunch I took Émilie to a movie, after which we visited my mother and took a few minutes to do a proper photo shoot for the recently completed Tiny Tea Leaves cardigan (finally!!!)
Feast your eyes...
Knit with just under 2 skeins of Dream in Color Classy in Cool Fire, this cardigan was really a breeze to knit. The only modification I made was to add a third button-hole (I'd seen similar modifications on Ravelry, and I liked the three-buttoned version better) and to add a little length for the size I was knitting. I finished it off with some vintage buttons my grandmother gave me a few months ago. All in all, very happy with this project, and Émilie likes it too :) That makes it a winner in my book!
Happy Knitting Everyone!
