bocadillo con huevos y chorizo,
and of course, Coca Cola light (that's for IGK).
Afterwards, a nice long walk to the beach. (I figure to and from the beach is at least 2 points towards the smackdown.)
A stop along the way for a cerveza and some knitting on my newly cast on project, a ribby cowl (3x1 rib) done in Plucky cashmere 2-ply, colorway Tutu (love that name).

I had heard so many great things about Signature needles that I had to try them for myself, even if it meant temporarily giving up my beloved circulars and the magic loop. (Signature needles come in straights and double points…for now. There’s a rumor that they’re coming out with circs.) To be completely honest, I had this overwhelming need to try them out because the needles have points that they call “stiletto”. I’m a sucker for anything shoe related.
I’ve been trying out my new dpns on the Blackberry Brambles socks and the stiletto points are pretty amazing. The sharp points come in really handy with the Wollmeise Twin I’m knitting with since I find Wollmeise to be splitty (love love the colors and the knitted fabric though, so I put up with splitty).
The only downside, aside from the whole dpn thing, is that the points are so sharp, I feel I need to be wearing body armor for fear that I’ll impale myself with them. It happens.

I love that many of the restaurants have their own kitchen gardens.
And the grapes are just about ready for the harvest.
