I dug out some Mirasol Qina yarn (alpaca/bamboo blend) and cast on for Foliage.  The pattern comes in two versions, a worsted and a chunky.  I think the delicateness of the leaf lace pattern gets a little bludgeoned by the chunky weight wool, so I opted for the worsted.

It’s knit from the top down.  The first couple of rounds are fiddly but after that it’s quite addictive.  So addictive, in fact, that after I proceeded to the “body” section of the lace pattern, I screwed up and lost a stitch somewhere, so I ripped it back … all the way to the beginning!  I almost have it back to the point in the photo now; I’ll pay closer attention to the lace repeats once I get it onto the circular needle.  And maybe use some markers, too.

I made this Baked Penne & Roast Veggie casserole last night. Every time we have it we both remark on how good it is! Yummy!  And I just pulled an apple crisp out of the oven and I can’t stand how delicious it smells. I must test it.
