7-23-2017 Celtic Myths

I finished knitting
the "Celtic Myths" shawl last night!
The cable at the bottom
is like a zentangle in fabric
and just the cable took 34 hours to complete.
Today I will wash and wet-block it.


Tomorrow, after it dries from washing and wet-blocking,
I will steam block it.
It turned out sooooooo pretty!!!

7-17-2017 artisanbreadwithstev

 A knitting buddy introduced me to 
her favorite homemade bread recipes.
She gets them on youtube from
I tried his basic bread recipe first
and it was moist and delicious (and easy!).
I used the poor man's "Dutch Oven" method
by clipping 2 bread pans together.


Next I plan to try the caraway rye bread recipe.
