Les sent me a link for Ricotta Gnocchi this morning, saying "Hey, you might like this." Last week, Bri sent me a link for Gnocchi with sauteed vegetables. I looked at the pictures.

This is a nice, cozy song. I'd like my banana pancakes like this:

And I was well behaved and did the sewing and edges! Just have ends and a bath left. I know I cried like a baby about this, but when I tried it on, my first thought was "Hey, I want another one!!!" I LUV it!

It actually worked. Dunking the cheese balls in salt water and refrigerating them overnight smooths out the texture, like laying out your damp wool sweater and patting it flat. The texture is rubbery-a little like chewing mozzerella erasers, but it's not too far from where it is supposed to be!

I went to the bookstore yesterday for my monthly ration of magazines. Since I drive for an hour, I usually try to make it worth my while. My wallet always gasps because I spend SO much money on magazines!!!!

I bought Knit One Below when it first came out....but I got a little sidetracked with other projects. My LYS had an Alchemy Yarns trunk show a few weeks back, and I picked up this book, as well as Migrations to knit up the cover project. I firmly stepped right over the grey yarn, called Sanctuary, because I didn't want to do something EXACTLY like the picture, and because it was 26.00 per skein of DK. This project required four skeins of Sanctuary. Oh, HELL no.
