In keeping with this month's red/pink theme, I present the color Strawberry Margarita. I was treated to a hot stone pedicure and massage last week. Wow - that's about all I can say. I think I was actually in heaven for a few hours. The hot stone thing is kind of strange - they use these heated smooth stones covered in massage oil. Apparently the stones help direct the heat directly to the muscle so that you get a more intense massage. I just had this done on my feet and lower legs and then a traditional massage over the rest of the body. All in all, highly recommended. Yeah, I know, if I was doing this correctly, I should have included a real Strawberry Margarita in this picture. Oh well - didn't happen.
I am still working on my daughter's top down sweater - now on the second sleeve. Carole asked about the pattern and this is it -
Knitting Pure and Simple's Children's Neckdown Pullover #9730. I am making it in a dark pink Malabrigo. No new picture - still looks pretty much the same.
I also received a package from my secret pal. I apologize for the lack of pictures. Let's just say there was candy involved and I was being selfish and didn't want to share. Pictures will be coming later but I want to thank my pal for the beautiful Fleece Artist Blue Faced Leicester spinning fibers. In a wonderful color called Mermaid. I'm really looking forward to spinning this as I never spun BFL and have heard only good things.
