A Proper Martini and changing Designs

Martini's ...a work in progress(one of the work's anyway)
Step 1 MartiniStep 1, rimming the chilled Martini Glass with lemon; and a light coating of the lemon sugar
pouring the martiniPouring the Martini, being careful not to pour on the rim and ruin the pretty and tasty rim.
curling the lemon twistCurling the lemon twist. Sometimes the twist breaks, depends on the thickness of the lemon skin. But, if you twist it around a toothpick or drink skewer...you get a nice decorative twist that floats and looks nice in your drink.
MartiniPresenting 2 well made Martini's. Hubby's on the left (Dry Gin Martini with a twist...that broke and didn't float...argh), my Vodka LemonDrop on the right with the coated rim. We had our cocktails at home before going out to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. Did you miss my previous post? Scroll back one to see how young we were 40 years ago.
Feather and FanOn the yarn front, continuing to work on my Feather and Fan Afghan. Though since his photo, I've finished with that multi-skein you see there and have moved onto the next section which is a gray, though not the dark gray you see...a lighter shade. The design keeps changing, due to the amount of yarn I have. A true work in progress, as the design is also in progress...as it slips along on the needles.

  2. Looks like the drinks were well made, and were worth the celebration. Congratulations!

    I truly understand the comment about "progress" depending on the amount of yarn you have. I like the look of the shawl.
