And now for something completely different

Ballband Dishcloth, originally uploaded by alicethelma.

Fans of Mason-Dixon Knitting will recognize the Ballband Dishcloth which is one of my favorite pieces of knitting meditation and if I’m not busy making an oven mitt then I’m making a washcloth. So today I took the washcloth, along with Alice and Max, out for breakfast to the Cup and Saucer Cafe on Hawthorne in Portland.

Here is Brent, our wacky waiter, taking Max’s order. Notice the secret message on the back of his order pad that only the recently initiated will understand. In between scarfing down food and snapping photos, I did manage to knit a few.

Another oven mitt in progress special ordered by Roland.

For myself I ordered the Northwest Salmon Benedict with fruit salad instead of potatoes.
Utterly delicious.

Alice likes to drown her poor potatoes in ketchup. We go through gallons of ketchup around this place.

All in all a fabulous way to spend a Sunday morning with the ones I love.
Get thee to the Cup and Saucer post haste!

PS: I've changed the settings so that anyone can leave a comment without getting a google account first. Try it out and let me know how it works. I would love to hear from you. :-)

Why did you pick such a dork picture of me? Also: Alice's potatoes look delicious, I don't care what you think.
