Photo Friday: What’s For Dinner

Carne Asada

I’d never even heard of Carne Asada before I moved to Southern California. It’s cooking here on the grill we got with a gift card from K’s coworkers for the wedding. We usually have it with Spanish rice and peas.

Yummy yummy yummy.

Spring Knitty!

The new Knitty is up, and, as usual, there are a bunch of gorgeous things!

Nautie is just the cutest little thing. I like UnGranny Smith a lot, although I’m not generally a big fan of the color green. And I think I’d want a substitute for the Lily Chin yarn anyway. Anatolia is lovely; I’m not sure how flattering it would look on me. Tendrils is lovely, even though the long drop-stitch scarf reminds me ever-so-slightly of Clapotis, probably because mine doesn’t curl like the original. And Reid is adorable. Have I mentioned we have a 4-year-old niece?

I usually like the Spring issue, since where I live, we don’t have winter. We barely have autumn. So, while I love soft, thick cabled wool sweaters, they’re not terribly practical. The spring and summer issues are when the cottons come out to play.

Knitting Blogs Ring

It looks like I got dropped from the Knitting Bloggers ring at some point. I’m not all that surprised, since my posting got pretty sporadic for a while there. The ring is actually open to new members again since yesterday, but your blog has to have been up for a month with at least one post per week. I think I’ll wait for the next time the ring opens and apply again.

Welcome to CavStitches 2.0

Note (added June 12, 2009):  This is an introductory post to the reincarnation of my first knitting blog.

There is a sad story behind the disappearance of the last two years of posts. It involves a series of back-ups that refused to restore properly, and the less said about that, the better.

Live and learn. Much like knitting, sometimes you just have to rip back to the beginning and start again.

So, welcome to the new Cavalier Stitches.
