Here's a new toque, finished just in time for spring; you can find the pattern here. While I really liked the colours the designer used in her toque, I decided to use up yarn that I already had; therefore it is brown.
This is a swatch for what will probably be a short-sleeved cardigan (to go over dresses or to be paired with a skirt). However, so far I can't think of exactly what to do with the design that isn't completely yawn-inducing.
Last night's dinner was vegetarian cassoulet and what's awesome about this recipe is the minimal prep time. There's no dicing of carrot/leek/celery; vegetables are left in chunks, making it a perfect weeknight dinner. The stew followed on my first trip to Faubourg, where I plan on going back to do more pastry reconnaissance. Yesterday was also my first time in Southlands, a strange rural-ish pocket of Vancouver, where people actually ride horses in the streets.
