Through the haze and humidity, some sunshine is falling on the blocking Chamomile! It's been pinned out since Friday, when I went over it with a very steamy iron. Of course, it's been entirely steamy everywhere, so I'm not sure if there was an added benefit from using the iron. The goal: finish Chamomile before we leave for vacation on Saturday! Since we'll be in New England, I imagine that a silk/cotton sweater will be quite welcomed on those chilly* September nights.
To celebrate the end of major knitting on Chamomile and the blocking-pinning, we drank New Yorkers on Friday night. Whiskey, lime, Cointreau, grenadine (I think we used a bit much) and simple syrup: a very tasty combo. In comparing this with another pink cocktail, the much-overdone Cosmo, a New Yorker wins hands-down. Me likey whiskey.
