My friend Shannon came to do lunch this week and finally pick up her knitting gifts!
Here she is modeling her beret and gauntlets. I did remind her that it was August here, but she said she didn’t care, she was going to wear them anyway!
Perhaps its to make up for the fact that the hat was originally a Christmas present and the gloves were originally a birthday present, which is in October. And Yes, I did finish them in time.
Finishing things and getting them to their intended targets are two different things!
We had a nice time visiting and catching up and cooking lunch together. Shannon brought corn grits, sausage, kalamata olives and fresh parmasan cheese.
I provided fresh local tomatoes, basil, zucchini, and walla walla onion. Herbs and additional things were added, and soon we had a lovely meal!
A lovely visit! Come again soon, Shannon!
