You know that evil trap knitters often fall into? The one where you discover you don't have the right size needles for a project? And you just dash into the yarn store to pick up the right ones? And your eye just happens to fall on an object of such gorgeousness that you are unable to leave the store without it? Yep.

After the sock yarn frenzy of last week I am broke until the next millenium, but Dave stepped in like a true hero and insisted he buy it for me. Awwwwww. And last night he cooked dinner: toasted olive bread spread with blue cheese and topped with caramelized garlic and shallots in sweetened balsamic. Oh yeah, there are many reasons why he's a keeper!

We had a great day yesterday. We were up early (thankyou, cats who are obviously starving even though when you sit down you can't see your feet), and ended up going to Ripe for breakfast. If you are in or near the Melbourne are, and you haven't been to Ripe - go now. Immediately. You have to book first though - even for breakfast on a weekday - they are insanely popular. I had honey glazed roast pumpkin on wholegrain toast topped with an egg and drizzled with rocket and garlic pesto. Yummmmmm. Then we did a little shopping in their gourmet produce area. Lime treacle. Nuff said.

Then we came home, collapsed for a bit, and headed off again, via the yarn store (see above) and wandering up and down Chapel St. And it was a beautiful day for wandering about!

Good thing for the day: I have another finished object!

Bad thing for the day: I haven't blocked or photographed it yet. But soon!

Oh... that evil, "I just came in for stitch markers" thing.... yeah. I do that a lot.

Aw, what a sweetie that Dave is! Does he have any single brothers?! :)

Definitely a keeper. For the time being....okay, fine. Keep him.

Yum, food. Treacle, though?

All yarn stores do that. It's their thing.

Popping into the yarn store for needles can be dangerous. :) Dave sounds like he is definitely a keeper.
