Cigarette Anyone?

Aha! Got ya - bet you thought I'd started smoking again - nope! 11 mos coming up! But I do have a photo of the best men's sweater I have ever seen - Linda dropped it off yesterday and my dad stopped in offering to buy it. It's Smokin by Jared Flood - just realized who the designer was, I should have known because it's so great!
Yarn: Blackstone Tweed Chunky in 6607 - a deep gorgeous charcoal grey that didn't photograph as well as it could have.

Linda also dropped off the Karen Shawl from Amy Swenson - don't you just love the scallopy detail at the top of the shawl. This took less than one skein of Dream in Color Everlasting in Tidewater. Feels wonderful knit up and the colors - well, you should just come by and see for yourself!

And I've been cooking - Longo's (my fav place to grocery shop) has come out with it's holiday magazine of recipes and it's just loaded with things I had to try. First up was salmon, mushrooms and rice in puff pastry. Yum! Yum! I've made it twice now and it's going to be a family dinner regular because it's so delicious and so easy! I've also made seafood pasta and an artichoke and mushroom casserole.....seriously, if you are near a Longo's go get the magazine. Tonight is sauteed scallops with spinach and rice. I KNOW....I sound like I might know what I'm doing.......
And I'm knitting...madly on the Fifth Avenue Infinity Scarf! Pictures tomorrow!
