I'm Hungover

Mom-
Of course you list it as kangaroo yarn. People will thinks is cheeky and cute! As for what to make of it, I would say this shawl but I think the pattern is in Dutch. Get Kevin to learn Dutch and translate it for you. Anyways,

Remember this?


I think this was at one point an aborted Christmas present for you. I started out knitting Scarcelle and was so disgusted by the parallelogram that was formed by knitting on the bias that I frogged the whole thing while we were in Alaska last summer and started this. It's the same basic stitch pattern, but knit straight and with five garter selvedge stitches on either side. I also knit on this while I was in China, as something to preoccupy me when sweater knitting got to unbearable. So. It's been around the world.
The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill, some combination of two kinds of silks I believe, purchased on closeout in 2006 from Simply Socks. It's very reminiscent of Sea Silk. So, of course, I adore it. In the process of moving I have packed the other half of my yarn. I now only have 25 or so more yards to knit with until I've moved into the quarter. Well, I hope that I've already packed that yarn and haven't misplaced it.

Oh! and while reading the Gambit last night I found out that the produce part of the french market reopens June 13ths. Of course New Orleans is throwing a three day festival for this joyous occasion... I believe it has something to do with Creole tomatoes, which are about to come into season.

I miss the pool and your tomato and mozzarella salad.

Caroline, you can make an easy tomato, basil and garlic salad if you can get some good fresh tomatoes at the French Market. Just slice tomatoes, chop fresh basil and fresh garlic. Mix together with a tablespoon of olive oil and refrigerate. You can add the cheese if you want. It' also great over hot spaghetti. Love, Aunt Dale
