The other thing I was going to do was finish up the Acres of Mesh. In fact, I didn't do this by the end of April, but looky here:
Somehow it doesn't fit quite the way it looks in the magazine... but it'll be fun in the summer.
For Stephen's birthday on the weekend I made Coq au Vin, which is dead easy -- cook some chicken, pour on wine. Cook some more. Throw in mushrooms. Ta Da! Looks funny, though -- a very lovely dark pink from the wine. But it tasted great. I don't have a picture of it, but I did snap one of the birthday cake. Guess how old he is?
He got a shirt from one of his grad students.
I'm pleased to say that physicists great and small were debating what exactly that equation is all about!
So, plans for May...
- Sew up the Denim cardigan. This has been sitting around for a long time, but I just need to do buttonbands and other fiddly bits, I think. It's a mind-over-matter issue.
- Work on a pair of socks. I have 2 different partially knit socks somewhere around here, and I'd like to have at least one pair by the end of the month!
- Start something new -- and right now I'm not committing to anything in particular, since I change my mind every half hour.
- Tend my herb garden, including this lemon verbena. I wish Blogger had smell-o-vision! It smells like lemon candies!
