Even more gradient yarn, and pretty food

The pink is shading ever so gently, getting paler and paler. Heading into cream (why does this look like dessert?); the gray will come later. Pink and white roses, gray rain clouds? Whatever, it’s gorgeous.

This is waiting in the wings. Black Trillium Fibres Lilt, in Periwinkle.

In the meantime, there’s been a lot of pretty food! I hosted my annual Pinot & Piano fun-raiser a couple weeks ago. I provide piano and dessert. My co-hosts provide wine and music. It all comes together in a lovely evening for 16 guests. This year’s desserts:

These aren’t as big as they look; they’re served in mini wine glasses.

  3. gorgeous gradient yarns!!!

  4. The Knitcircus Thrilling Come What May is gorgeous! Is one skein enough to make a shawl? Will your pattern that you are using be available soon? It is so pretty–does the yarn have something sparkly in it?

    • Yes, one 100g/400 yard skein is enough for a shawlette; I just finished! There’s also a 150g option. Pattern is at tech editor right now. I need photography and then it will be done. No sparkly in the yarn, but it is flat out gorgeous.
