Instead of sitting quietly in Willow's Cottage on Thursday evening, I was rocking my way to San Diego on the Amtrak Surfliner. Visiting my daughter this weekend, I knew I'd be late posting on Friday Fave Five. But as the saying goes, "Better Late Than Never". It is never ever too late to express gratitude for the week's blessings.
1. A week ago, our weekend included a fun evening with friends that began with a yummy dinner of black beans and rice, fresh asparagus from the farmers market and gluten free chocolate brownies, all prepared by my green thumb friend who grows the most incredible square foot garden. My contribution to the dinner was these strawberries which I had purchased that morning at the same farmers market. They had been picked from the local fields earlier in the morning.
2. There was knitting. While the others played bridge, I knitted. Then, during the week's evenings, I knitted. Finally, I photographed two of the finished projects. The fingerless mitts are made from a pattern that MinimalistKnitter asked me to test knit. The result was a very comfortable pair of mittens. You can get the free pattern from Robyn's blog here.
