We had a great weekend! We started off by making this really tasty dish with mashed potatoes, cabbage, onion, garlic, leek (I like leek, I’d never had it before!) and yes, of course… bacon. (But only a tiny bit, really!)
leeks make food colorful and pretty

Sunday we went to Dim Sum downtown (sadly, no pictures… we ate all of the food too fast). We had pork buns, sticky rice, noodles with some sort of beef in them, turnip cakes and something else that I don’t know the name of, but I know that I like it.
After that, we went to the science museum to see the frog exhibit – Tim loves frogs!

a green frog with sticky toes
can you find the frog?
poison dart frog - so pretty!
I also got a book from the library! Charted knitting designs!
continuing to fuel my addition
I’ve already opened it up and tried out a pattern I’ve had my eye on, the ribbed spindle. I think it looks like mitosis and that makes the science nerd in me oh-so-very happy.
not as hard as it looks, really
I also learned how to do a tubular cast on. I would not encourage anyone to try and learn this at 1am. Not my best idea ever, but I did eventually understand it. And look how pretty my 1×1 rib looks as a result!
harder than I thought it would be
I have grand plans for this swatch and these new things I’m learning. I’ve done a lot of math so far. It hasn’t all been pretty, especially when I sometimes can’t count – but I’m excited about it all the same!
