I had a jam packed weekend filled with good food, knitting, reading, and handlettering!
>Friday night, the hubs and I kicked off our weekend with a delicious dinner at Locanda:
>I almost finished knitting my first sock for #knitting club. My favorite thing about sock knitting so far is that at each stage, the sock seems to resemble a different animal.
The Ferret (also known as the heel):
Hippo or Praying Mantis?
On an early Saturday morning, there must be nothing better than listening to a nice book on Audible, knitting some sweet socks, and sipping on hot tea.
>In the afternoon, I drove over the Golden Gate bridge (one of my absolute favorite drives) and up to Mill Valley to take a handlettering class from Maybelle. It was so fun:
It took me a while to get the hang of it, but once I did I fell in love. Now I can't stop daydreaming about all the things I could handletter (is it bad or awesome that I was thinking up party ideas just so I could address the invitations?!). Even though I got stuck in traffic on the way there, had to park five blocks away, and broke my flip flop running to get to the class, it was SO worth it. Times 1 million. If you live in the bay area and have any interest in learning calligraphy, you should definitely sign up for one of Maybelle's classes. The class was held at Once Around, which is an absolutely incredible all-in-one craft stop. I bought fabric, knitting needles, watercolor paint, and quilting needles all at once!
>Yesterday we cleaned up our apartment, and I hung out with a few friends for most of the afternoon. We dyed some easter eggs and whipped up some tasty chocolate macarons (check back on Wednesday for the recipe):
The hubs and I ended the weekend quietly with dinner and a movie at home. Have you seen Ted? It was Viet's choice, but I have to admit it had more than a few hilarious moments.
It was a pretty eventful and fulfilling weekend. How was your weekend? Do you feel refreshed and ready to start the week? or are you wishing you could have one more day left in your weekend (me!)?
