This aran sweater has been in progress since January... and is finally complete. My dad and I went and chose out 8 skeins of absolutely beautiful 100% merino called Merisoft Solid by Punta Yarns at Gina Brown's so that I could knit him a sweater for his birthday. For my sake, he was coaxed out of choosing mottled blue + gray and we decided on a dark green. The pattern is by Sirdar. So satisfied with the finished product, and he is the happiest pa around!
Last weekend we indulged on some good eats in Victoria. On Blanshard and Johnson we visited a favourite of KMG and SA's: PIG BBQ Joint. It's a small corner location, with a laid back interior that kind of reminded me of Vancouver's Meat & Bread (another definite-favourite-must-eat). Equally as carnivorous, Pig offers: pork, pork, chicken, and... oh yeah, pork.
