Inspiration and Fantasies

Spinning rainbow colored gradient yarn. Bought the fiber from HipStrings.

Lots of projects just waiting for final decisions. Already in project bags with needles sitting near the desk.
My next sweater design in fingering weight yarn. This one will have a shallow scoop neck and 3/4 length slightly flared bell sleeves and lace at the bottom of the body and sleeves.
My next next sweater design out of DK weight with a center front cable panel.
A shawl design.
A cowl design.
Another cowl design.

At The Table

CSA! (she did some crazy online shopping way after bedtime and signed up for two)

Weird "what can I build with what I have in the pantry meals".
Figuring out how to cook better with frozen veggies. She even used this Budget Bytes recipe using frozen veggies to make a stir fry and liked it despite being a stir fry snob.
