A good weekend! Saturday night we went out to dinner with our son and his lovely girlfriend at a terrific French restaurant in Milwaukee, Chez Jacques. I had saumon aux epinards and the best onion soup gratinee I've ever had. I can usually be trusted to order salmon, no matter what the language. ...As well as a glass or two of merlot.
It was a great evening--and we ended up at Will and Kelley's apartment for dessert. Flourless chocolate cake! I tend to hole up out here in the country; it's always a huge treat to take the plunge and trek into the city, especially when I am this well fed.

And in fiber-related news, here's a week's progress on the new shawl:
Sunday morning I gathered up the shawl and its accoutrements and met up with several friends for knitting at a coffee shop in Pewaukee. If you bought a large drink, the pastries were only a dollar--sounded like a deal to me.
Many of the usual suspects were there.
Everyone knits and quilts and the conversation was devoted to both.
Well, except for non-knitter Betsy, below. What was she doing here? I can't remember but it wasn't knitting. We will suck her into it, though, I bet. Eventually.
Our knitting group used to meet regularly but life has gotten in the way in the last year or so. We're going to hope this is the first of a more regular habit of getting together.
And the temp hit 60 degrees! Whoo hoo!
