Obligatory yarn shot! This is my felted messenger bag that was from I decided that it should have some flowers so I hand-felted them...I guess they are ''fulled". I think it came out looking quite nice, don't you?

A beautiful day today. A nice breeze and much cooler. We went to Jungle Jims's a grocery/specialty store) for some groceries and various sundries. They have a wonderful tea section in their England section as well as a Chinese tea section, a Japenese, Indian...tea section. I bought some tea....quelle surprise! An almond tea from Benchly (cheap but usually good), Autumnal Darjeeling and Tropical, which is a black tea with cornflowers, hibiscus and other flavors from an inn in Kentucky called the Elmwood Inn. Can't decide which to have first. Also got some good sushi. Well.... not so much sushi as it is the vegetable combo but still sushi.

Then decided to drive down and listen to the carillions in Mariemont. Stopped at Starbucks for a "holiday" iced venti soy latte...mmmm. The music was wonderful and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. I knitted on my sock ( the pattern from The Yarn Harlot is fabulous) and they played one of my favorite pieces of music, Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. All in all just a wonderful day.

Also finished A.'s sweater, cast on for m's and cast on for my knitted from the top down tee-shirt style shirt. Think that one should be fun. I can't remember the pattern right off the top of my head but I'll look and post it next time.
