Ah! Such an easygoing weekend it's hard to speed up.....
My physical therapy has gone well and I'm freed to knit (smartly) again! I've started Purl Soho's Top-Down Turtleneck Cardigan, recalculating for a heavier yarn (Madeline Tosh Merino DK in Thunderstorm). I've had this yarn for years now and haven't know what, exactly, to do with it. Does that happen to you? I've trolled Ravelry over and over again for JUST THE RIGHT PATTERN S'IL VOUS PLAIT but nothing really captured my attention until now. I'm looking forward to testing out the contiguous shoulder shaping--it has real possibilities for stranded knitting.

I wrote about our favorite kale salad a bit ago, and Marilyn wrote that she tried it with cherries, walnuts, and blue cheese. I made it this way and, as usual, Marilyn is right--winning combo!
I also made this fabulous shaved Brussels sprouts salad: "Spicy Brussels Sprouts Salad with Almonds and Mint." Very very good!
Clearly my mission is convert all of you to my brassica love!
