I met the most handsome man downtown...
Mom offered to babysit so my husband and I could have a date. It has been nearly a year since our last time out alone.
We strolled around town hand in hand and ended up at Oslo's oldest restaurant, Engebret.
How lovely to sit outside with my honey to a meal that I didn't make and not think about doing the dishes.
The evening was warm and pleasant with the sun shining through the leaves.
And the food was marvelous.
The wait staff supplies were all around the old statue here which made for an interesting combination.
We got home from our date fairly early which gave me time to knit and chat with mom. And now you can see what I am doing with the green yarn. I decided to pair the pretty soft green handspun yarn that we had wound into skeins the other day with brown handspun. The yarn is very special to me. As I said it is handspun, by mom's good friend Helen who passed away some years ago. She made beautiful yarn as well as gorgeous lace shawls. When she died I think she gave her entire stash of handspun yarn to my mother and she has been so kind in sharing some with me. For too long I have just had it on the shelf, waiting for a project special enough. There probably isn't ever a project that will be special enough for this beautiful yarn, but these humble mittens that I am going to felt will have to do. I am crazy about the pale green with the brown.
