Just Life

the story of sunday.

…I’ve been spending a LOT of time knitting lately. like in a way that makes me wonder how people with any other obligations on their time ever manage to knit period. so I feel fortunate that my knitting bug bit at precisely a point in my life where I have time.

so…two finished projects – both single skeins – and this definitely proves that not all single skeins are created equal! those last 20-some rows of ishbel took me most of the day (after my run in the park, costco and kroger and in between five loads of laundry).

but that still left plenty of time for dinner. marc was out of town (sidenote – his traveling is a good part of why I have so much free time!) and sara and I had been wanting to make the cornbread salad from smitten kitchen. kind of a southern take on our favorite panzanella. she made the cornbread – using stoneground cornmeal so it had a bit of crunch – oh my, good. and I prepped and assembled everything else. it came together beautifully and I would definitely recommend it.

and we did manage to finish nearly all of it – except for lots of leftover croutons!

    love the knitting, both pieces are gorgeous. sometimes a break from a multi-skein project is nice-makes you feel productive. the salad looks very yummy too.
