Happy Sunday.

I hope you all had a great Sunday. I did a little spinning of the midnight merino. I know it's taking a long time but I'm spinning the whole pound.

The scarf for Jen is coming along really well. One little mistake and some frogging back a row but it's looking good. It's made from Knit Picks Andean Silk in Navy & Slate.

It's hard to see the pattern while it's still on the needles. Maybe when I get a little further I will be able to open it a little . The pattern is Fishtail Lace Scarf.

I promise not to bore you with the daily update pictures.

Yesterday I found this beautiful pork roast that I slow cooked this afternoon.

We went out in the early afternoon, the smell when we came home and opened the door was soooooo good. The roast was tender and moist with just a little seasoning when it was browning. I found some new potatoes I've never seen before, red skinned Yukon gold. Hard to tell since I skinned them for the crock pot but very tasty.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Life is Good


  1. The scarf is absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see the finished product.

    How long does it take to spin 1lb of fiber? (new spinner has no idea) I have been following your recent spinning project, so I can only imagine how gorgeous this one will be.

    Just the thought of how great your house must have smelled is making my stomach grumble.

  2. That scarf is gorgeous! And I'm jealous of your spinning ability! I can't spin at all!

    Oh and that pork roast looks yummy. I bought a lovely pork tenderloin the other day and I think I'll make it sometime next week.

    I need to find a good recipe first!

  3. OK, now I'm officially hungry. Thank goodness for mince pie in the fridge...

  4. Love the feel of Andean Silk - my Number Guy's favorite yarn.

  5. YUM..that sure beats my ham sandwich. Your scarf is beautiful. Spinning is something I just have never tried maybe someday I'll be inspired.

  6. Those potatoes are my new favorite kind but I think they are just seasonal so grab them up if you see them!

  7. The scarf is beautiful. You knit so well and precisely. Very very nice.

    I so enjoy Yukon Gold potatoes. They just taste better.

    My husband likes pork roast with sauerkraut. Just thinking about it and looking at your pic is making my teeth water.
