Fruit Salad, The Knitter’s Guild & Fajitas

Tomorrow, at my office,  starts the week of recognition for a certain department. I have a cubicle in this department, but I’m not a part of that department. They were nice enough to include me on the breakfast they’re having tomorrow.  But, I have to bring something.  I was volunteered to bring fruit salad.  Not cheap.  I got grapes, strawberries, melon, and pineapple.  It was all pre-chopped, so less work for me.  My hands smell like fruit, sniff sniff, so good! 

I’ve been knitting a majority of the day.  I ripped my Vanilla Fog hat out once more.  Andrea Mowry got in touch with me about the pattern question I had. It still didn’t make sense,  so I altered it to make sense to me.  I finally got the hang of the brioche knitting in the round,  and I’m about 1.5 inches into the hat. Fun! 

I’m going to sign up for the Knitters Guild this summer.  It’s basically a school for knitters to test your skills, I think.  I want to be a master knitter.   I know,  I cannot even get brioche in the round to work, I have a ways to go before I could be a master. The idea of having knitting homework just seems fun.  So, yea.  

I’m dyeing some yarn right now.  Water is heating up in my 20 quart pot.  I don’t think I needed a pot that big, but for some reason,  I got it.  It would be awesome for crab legs though.  Too bad it is contaminated with acid dyes now. 

Per the request of my daughter,  I’m going to use pink and aqua dyes for this yarn. It’s going to be called Jigglypuff.  She loves Pokemon.  But, it will not be available in my store. I’m just testing the color combination for now.  Plus,  it’s on 100% Peruvian Highland Wool.  Not soft,  at all.  I’d feel awful if someone bought that base.  I’m waiting on my yarn order to come in,  and this scratchy yarn is the only thing I had left to dye.

I’ve got my secret dry rub marinating on chicken now.   Going to fire up the grill around 5:00 and cook my favorite meal, fajitas!!  Spanish rice,  refried beans, peppers, onions, and cheese will be in the mix as well.  Not to toot my own horn,  but my fajitas are better than any fajitas I’ve ever had. Nom!

I guess that’s all for now.  I’m going to go dye my yarn,  get back to knitting,  and start cooking soon.
