(this is Mighty Leaf Tea from Oddchick
it's amazingly good - and comes in a very pretty little organdy tea sachet
very very special stuff!)
... and that I have a blog! What a beautiful 3 day weekend we had up here in the Pacific Northwest. It is actually the 1st Memorial Day in a LONG time (maybe 9 yrs or so) that it's been sunny AND warm .... wow! I took 3 days off from the internet and spent my time in the garden, on walks with my fam, cooking yummy summertime food, and starting a new knitting project.
I go on a very cool website for knitters called Ravelry. I'm a beginner knitter really - but becoming part of a knitting group in town and having the resources available on Ravelry (patterns, tips, and conversation) has given me a great knitting confidence.
For instance I had this yarn, but no project for it. I simply did a pattern search using the yarn for a keyword and found THIS (Ravelry actually led me to the Knitty website for the pattern). And after a 3 day weekend, I'm nearly done with the back.
These wonderful ladies have already had their Tea today:
