What a week

I knew this week off was going to be a great week when I opened the Knit/Purl package on Monday...Habu is very intriguing...all the texture,fibers...and this came as well, My first purchase with Handmaiden kits and of course,I was anxious to get going on it... The green is to die for..I mean it,it's that pretty,but the silk yarn is a bit tricky to work with,so it's not going as fast as I like... I should be working on May,but Hailey won't be here for Mother's Day,so I have a little more time to finish this...only 1/2 a sleeve and the collar to go..now this Rowan yarn ,on the other hand,is a joy to work with... I probably would have gotten a lot more accomplished,but my hubby took off the last two days to be with me...isn't that sweet...I think he really just wanted to go out for lunch..it was very,very good,I must admit...and it's always nice to have some time to ourselves...I opted for a spring mix salad,gorgonzola and a balsamic dressing,that called at you to lick the plate (I didn't...) and the mezzo ravioli,he opted for a house salad and the biggest plate of spaghetti they could find...and of course ate it all... I'm secretly hoping he'll just trim these hedges.. that would make me very happy this Friday...

What a cool post with lots of neat things you are working on! I have admired that Handmaiden kit 4ever so I'm anxious to see how it comes out. I also love, love, love the cabled sweater that you are working on but the link didn't have a design called "May" or at least I didn't see it. I'm curious is that the pattern name?
