All Good Things Must Come To An End, Right?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend....we tried hard not to be sad in remembering our missing family member, but BB crops up in a lot of people's conversations, and even today was no exception. At a small get-together of just 4 of us Roanoke knitting grrls at Panera Bread, for lunch, the BB's name was mentioned. She is sorely missed.

But we did have a good time today, knitting away, even if the restaurant was a might cool! A last minute change, I got a Cafe Mocha, frozen. I wished I'd stayed with the original HOT toes might not have frozen to match my drink! *wink*

The last small gathering of knit buds was at Pam's house and at the time, I promised I'd show her that I, too, collected Shawnee King Corn items. I told her then, that I also collected "Tomato Ware" from Occupied Japan. So here are a couple of shots...
This one includes the veggie salt & pepper shakes I have collected as well...
Margene was showing off her collection of pins (from another time, we both now collect yarn, needles, and patterns, I think! lol!) and I mentioned that I should share some of here ya go! Just especially for you grrls...
Yes, I did knit this weekend - here are the two socks I managed to turn the heels on (that's the second Bubblegum sock, and the first Watercolor Sock)

And I'm now through 4 repeats of Anne's Star of Evening shawl...
(You can tell where I wet blocked the first repeat, right?)

What with the festival, knitting with the grrls, laundry, a bit of cooking, and a couple of errands today, it was a good weekend.

And now - as someone said to me via email today ... tomorrow it's back to reality.

All those veggie dishes are great! Memorial Day is when we remember those we've lost - thanks to your blog a lot of people remember & miss the Blond Bombshell. I thought a lot about Tiger, Moki, Patches & Sparky yesterday too.

The shawl is looking beautiful -- I love it in that colorway! And the block seems to be holding nicely, too, yay :)

I love the veggie-ware! The shawl looks absolutely lovely; I'm so glad you kept using the Meezer yarn for it! :)

I love your collections! I go to a lot of antique shows but haven't run across tomato-ware before. I'm going to have to start looking for it.

I need to make a shawl for my niece for her wedding next year. Any suggestions for something easy yet stunning?

Wow, has it been a year already?

I love your veggie-ware, it's beyond it still made?

The bubblegum sock is very cute despite the um, interesting yarn it's knit from :)

(((Big Hug))) Sorry you're missing BB. I can completely relate. This was our first beach season without Mavis and she was sorely missed but not forgotten.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
