Get it? Was that a really bad pun or what! Larry and I actually made this last weekend – it was a recipe from Bon Apetit – or Cooking Light – of course, I made it a few days ago, and now I can’t find the recipe. Which is going to drive me crazy because they were amazing. They are made with whole wheat, oatmeal, flax meal – all that good for you stuff but they were really delicious (even the kids liked them!). We had such a fun time making them – I haven’t made yeast bread in a while – that we ordered a bunch of flour from King Arhur Flour to make rye, pumpernickel and other good stuff. But I do hope I find the recipe for the rolls.
So the title actually referred to the knitting going on, not just the baking…..because my basket was empty, and I was in the mood for lace, I just had to start something…
This is a terrible picture of the shawl, but it really is a good one of the yarn. I tried four different shawls, and two other yarns before I decided on this. I was going to do Honeybee Stole, but the whole provisional cast on was a drag (204 stitches!) – I am a lazy knitter sometimes. So I poked around Ravelry, and saw this shawl – gorgeous, right? Its the same colorway so I thought I’d be a lemming and do the same shawl. I had a false start – I started it with the needles the pattern called for but didn’t like the fabric so I started over on a smaller size. And so far so good!
And because the knitting basket had some more room, I also started Acer.
I love this yarn – it just has a great wooly feel, and the color is really beautiful.
I got all this knitting done because I was out sick yesterday – I had something wrong with my eye, so I had to go to the doctor. So I sat and watched TV and knit – and switched from lace to sweater when the lace started hurting my eye. Today it is snowing/sleeting, so I worked from home – so I’ll be able to pick them up again after work – skipping my commute really adds to knitting time!
Well, lunch break is over, so I need to head back to work…but I thought I’d leave you with a little bit of spring…the Paperwhite Narcissus Larry gave me for Christmas just started blooming…
Have a great rest of the week!
