unexpected.'s daily photo prompt reminded me about Kym's recent observation that it's hard to plan a surprise. so I decided I would draw my "expected" line in the dark early hours when I was planning my day. as expected (?!?) I had a few surprises today, mostly good (whew! it was Friday the 13th after all) and wanted to share three of them with you:

first, the treat I enjoyed at knitting this afternoon. my first #psl, aka Starbucks' "pumpkin spice latte", celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. I guess I'm a slow adopter. I made a light version by adding two pumps of the pumpkin spice "sauce" (yep, it's not even a syrup) to my regular latte. I liked it. but I think I'd love it with just one pump. ...that will be next month's treat!

second, Katie and I are reading Peter Pan. We've seen the Disney movie and Mary Martin's Broadway performance (both on video) more times than I could count. And as much as I love them both, I have to say, the book is better. Because of passages like this:
"It is the nightly good custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day...When you wake in the morning, the naughtiness and evil passions with which you went to bed have been folded up small and placed at the bottom of your mind and on the top, beautifully aired, are spread out your prettier thoughts, ready for you to put on."
and last, the weather. it was a delightful 80 degrees this afternoon, with a breeze. Katie's deck was cool enough for a sweater (and a glass of red wine :-)  and she willingly took a few photos. This is the cardigan I finished last month (raveled here).

wishing everyone unexpected happy this weekend!

First - that's a great cardigan! The color and style and details are lovely. And second, that passage from Peter Pan is beautiful. Have a great day!

Love the sweater! I have big plans to knit tonight during the game. I might do more repeats of the lace.

Love the cardigan! The color and the fit are perfect. I've never read Peter Pan, but your quote makes it likely I will!

Lovely sweater! I read Peter Pan when I was a girl and your quote makes me want to read it again.

I've not read Peter Pan either but what a lovely passage. And the sweater...marvelous! I'm going to make it a point to try that PSL on our adventure to NC. A vacation treat!

I've never read Peter Pan either - but WOW! I think I need to savor it now. (I am a longtime fan of the pumpkin spice latte, though. Yum.) Love the cardigan. Looks just perfect for pretty much everything.
