There was knitting and noshing at Chez Arrow on Saturday, along with afternoon tea (part of my BBM3 goodies). We had shortbread...I used the BBM3 recipe...and ginger-pistachio scones with our tea, as well as cucumber sandwiches and curry chicken salad sandwiches. Dan made the chickie salad.
I didn't knit much, since I'm still resting the hands, but Bethany tried to teach me how to knit continental style. I can't seem to get the hang of holding onto the yarn with the left hand. Otherwise, it makes sense...think I will try again when I've made more progress on hand therapy.
A friend who I hadn't seen in years brought a sweater she had knit (and spun) from the fleece of her Cheviot sheep. Arrow decided to sit on the sweater.
Dana the spinner/shepherdess is on the right
And here are the curtains I finally made...they're so plain...don't ask why it took so long! The sheer fabric was leftovers from Dan's mother, whose friend was closing her upholstery shop. Unfortunately there isn't enough for the dining room...may end up buying curtains instead!
