In the Georgetown neighborhood (in Washington DC) on M Street, near Sephora & Sprinkles bakery alongside neat eateries and shops sits the Old Stone home from 1766. Step into history. They offer a free brief historical tour guide (no walking necessary) and a quaint gift shop – I purchased the tote bag, for my knitting! 😉
Such a neat find in the middle of so much activity.
Simple fav of mine…tomato & mayo. I’ve been enjoying this fresh fruit of the season almost daily for past 2.5 weeks! Sliced thick, use your fav spread (s). Above, I also spread guac on it and had with side of dill pickles….yum! Gluten-free bread tends to be small so one thick slice of tomato = perfect fit!.
Summer begins this Friday so why not use vibrant colors? Currently on my hook (I intend on knitting with it as well). I’m loving the new Red Heart Super Savers Stripes yarn colors…currently working with ‘Favorite Stripe’. They can be found at many craft stores/online for just about $3.00.
What a cool ‘Love the neighbor’ message.
Another way of casting on knitting (in the round) using two different color skeins of yarn. called two color cast-on. No waste of yarn or trying to estimate how much yarn to use for the cast-on. I like using two colors to make baby hats.
I’m also on a roll making my multi-colored Granny Square Crochet baby blankets….using Premier Everyday Soft Worsted Yarn. Luxurious, soft yarn… love working with it! A new fav of mine.
