Set in stone

So we did, we went to Mutari, and I got their Costa Esmeraldas bar because that’s long been my favorite (Dandelion buys beans from that farm too) and those two put in chocolate and sugar and nothing else, whereas the Manoa we tried has some cocoa butter. They’re all great.

As we headed out I picked up a long-stalled hat project and saw why it had been on timeout so long–hadn’t I ever counted those stitches? How did that happen? I ripped it out, cast on again with the single-ply wool arguing with the bumpy road, and with great satisfaction finished the ribbing for the new hat at about Scotts Valley. I considered what kind of patterning–but, nah. I wanted to keep looking at the redwoods we were driving through. Mindless stockinette it was.

Meantime, remember how I love stone houses?

Someone made their kids a stone tree house. With stained glass (-ish) windows no less. Photos 28-30.

The perfect place to retreat with a good book or yarn while keeping an eye on the kids. (Hey Mom that’s MY tree house!)

The perfect little cool-grandparents retirement cottage, both of them.

Yes, I would love to have that small elevated house! Of course, it took me forever to figure out where in the states you happened to be. Obviously, it is not going to be my backyard, nor that of any of my kids in the foreseeable future….

Satisfying knitting and delicious chocolate, what could be better?

I think I quite like that house. However the kitchen is a bit odd. The table is pushed to the wall (for traffic to the patio door) but what would you do if you had a family Christmas or something? And that “island” is breaking up the space. Odd – but fixable I guess.
Love the treehouse!
