A Good Omen - Latte Art 11-03-23 02

A Good Omen?

I’ve always considered that a well-poured latte is a good omen for the upcoming day. Especially when the latte art is good.

A Good Omen For Craft Shows Maybe?

With my upcoming craft show this week, I am liking what my lattes are saying about my prospects. Lately, my lattes have been kind of off. The espresso crema wasn’t very good (which affects the milk-foam art). Or my milk steaming wasn’t right (which definitely affects the “art”). But Yesterday and today, my lattes were really good.

I realize that my latte-pouring skills aren’t the best. I also realize that superstitions like this one are crazy.

So maybe, this is just my way of asking you to wish me luck this Sunday.

Current Knitting

Last blog, I mentioned I had a sufficient number of fingerless mitts for my upcoming show. But I had started another pair that I figured I’d finish.

Suffice it to say, I finished one of the two mitts. And started the second for the pair. I should finish the pair in time to wash/block/dry/tag them in time for the show this Sunday.

Really, I was a bit bored with knitting so many of these knits. And one of the social media advertisements showed this garment attributed to me.

I’m not sure what I did with this shawlette, but I don’t see it in inventory. So I opted to start a new one.

Not sure if I’ll finish it in time to block/tag it for the show. But at least I’ll have something to work on during slow times at the show.

  1. Wishing you stupendous sales at Sunday’s show and that you have the continued satisfaction of jobs well done. Is the shawlette a version of Age of Brass and Steam?

    1. Thanks Fred…the shawlette was a garment one of the guys from the NorthEast Men’s Knitting Retreat designed and asked me to test-knit. It’s not been published as far as I know.
