A lovely bouquet of flowers from my Lovely. I didn't take a picture of the half-eaten (by me) box of chocolates he also gave me. I don't really want photographic evidence of that deed.
Even though we both worked yesterday, it was a very good day. He made dinner of Cajun Roast, fried potatoes, and steamed asparagus. I provided dessert from Fayzes in the form of a seven layer bar and an apple pie square.
It was delicious and there are plenty of left-overs for us to dine well again tonight.
Speaking of "left-overs" (would you believe I didn't even plan that segue?), I've been working on a project to use those samples I got in the January Phat Fiber box.
These are mostly Phat Fiber samples, but there are also scraps and left-overs from other projects. These are all the sock-weight samples, which were the majority. I have piles of samples (plus my own) in worsted and bulky weight. I think I may do knitted squares of those, or try for a scrap yarn scarf or something.
If you're interested in obtaining a Phat Fiber box (which you should be, you have no idea!), the theme for February is Romance & Chocolate. Here is a link to the video on the Phat blog for all the goodies that will be in the February box (which goes on sale on Monday Feb. 16th, email her- Jessie at phatfiber at yahoo dot com- for the times!). There are lots of really cool items (patterns and magazines), lots of gorgeous fiber and yarn, and there will even be chocolate! As well as a few special extras that weren't in last months box. All this for only $33, shipping included!
I'm passing this on in the hopes that someone I know will get one and I can oogle over theirs. I can't get one this month, but am very hopeful for the March box.
p.s. the squares up there are done using this pattern. it's fast and super easy!
