. . .Food, Grandma, Heritage, Island, Joy ,Knitting, Lace, . . .

April is flying by!!! I thought I would update the recent ABC's of my life! Food: Friday I tried two new recipes that I think you all shoud give a try. They were both great! One is from The Pioneer Woman for Roasted Potato Wedges. We had this Friday night with a little steak and artichoke. They are simple, but flavorful. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. I also tried a recipe from Smitten Kitchen for Chocolate Caramel Crack(ers)! The "crack" is appropriate - this is really addicting stuff. It was a great snack to take along to the Heritage Golf Tournament on Saturday. Thankfully, we did some walking to process some of the calories. I'm getting out of "alphbetical order", but below is a photo from the Heritage Golf Tournament at Harbour Town. A view from one of the skyboxes looking out over Calibogue Sound. Lots of beautiful weather, people, boats, . . . and a little golf! It was a very nice day on Hilton Head Island. So. . . "G" could stand for "golf", but today it stands for grandma! I am so very excited that Ashley and David are expecting . . . and Philip and I will be grandparents! We are very happy for them. I am already planning knitting and sewing for all things "baby". Of course, this gives me much joy! The first project is this beautiful lacey blanket in Premiere by Classic Elite Yarns. This is a beautiful mint green and as mentioned on a previous post . . . very soft! It will have a knitted or crocheted border. The pattern is Breeze Lace Baby Blanket by Karabella Yarns. Here's a close up!

I have to mention that I checked out Brooklyn Tweed's latest post on some of his "baby knitting". As always, I think his things are beautiful and inspiring. I especially like the lacey bonnet. I hope everyone enjoys the weekend!
