April Favorites

April favorites, in no particular order.

{favorite recipes}

Tiny Strawberry Cream Scones

Pistachio Crusted Asparagus with Feta

and this one may become a May favorite once I try it.

{favorite books}

An excellent read.

Technically this is a March favorite. I absolutely loved this book, and the audiobook was fantastic! I couldn't stop listening to it. If you haven't read this one, put it on your list. And if you have read it, and enjoyed it, any others you'd recommend?

{favorite TV}

Game of Thrones!!! 

Bletchley Circle is back. And Orphan Black.

{favorite places}



The Inn at Port Ludlow, WA




High Tea at The Rotunda in San Francisco. A fun spring break afternoon last week with the family! It was just lovely.

{favorite yarns}


black trillium gradient sets



Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup DK. It is beyond lovely to knit with. I had to put the hat down to finish a few projects, but hoping to make some serious progress on it this weekend.

So there you go. A few of my favorites this past month. I can't wait to hear what have been some of your favorites this month. Please share!

Happy Knitting!

That was a fun month for you! I have to say that I also listened to Where'd You Go Bernadette? and loved it too! Have you read The Orphan Train yet? It's not as light-hearted as Bernadette, but it is a beautiful story.

I need to get on board with Game of Thrones! Funny coincidence is that the theme this month for the one sock club I joined this year, is GoT! Gorgeous patterns and I'm now intrigued by what inspired them :-)

Sounds like April involved some fun :)

I made a HUGE batch of my grandmother's dill dip last week. It's nothing spectacular and it's so easy to make but it reminds me of my childhood. Little Man hasn't tried it. I've tried to get him to eat some...but he just won't. Maybe when he's older.

Also, the pool is in working order so we'll be in there again today (icky hot, what the heck is this hot weather?!).

And I need to knit some more. I haven't been knitting...
