The Librarian

It's like magic!

I've noticed this truly amazing thing ... if one knits more rows on long-neglected projects, they grow! Shetland Ruffles had been languishing at halfway through the bright magenta section until I started working on it again Sunday night. :-)

(I know it currently looks like something you'd find creeping on the sea floor amongst the sponges and sea slugs. But when it completed and blocked it'll look like this)

Tasty things

Had this as part of dinner tonight: Garlic Clove Foods gluten free garden pilaf. Cooked it up in vegetable broth (made from vegetable boullion cubes acquired at one of the local Polish groceries) ... trés yummy!!!

Now if only I could remember where I bought it ... (it's been in the cupboard for a couple of months but pretty sure it was from either the butcher shop or Ten Thousand Villages)

Chemist meets fibre ...

Sequence Knitting by Cecelia Campochiaro. Sorely sorely tempted to buy this new technique book even though it's an expensive monster ... article about the author mentions that it weighs over 4.5 pounds. If it was pure text I'd consider an e-version (though I haven't seen any hint that one exists), but I already know from experience that when it comes to pages full of charts and diagrams ink on paper is the best format.

Ah well, I'm sure I can squeeze another bookcase into this place somewhere ... ;p
