A Lifeline

Lifeline Added

 

Somehow my pictures are looking particularly bad lately.  I think I might have a fingerprint on lens of my phone….

 

Yes.  This really is Strokkur for the hundredth time.  A added a lifeline this time so that I will not rip back past the ribbing.  I do have to say the Lett Lopi withstands some serious abuse however it is feeling a bit spindly lately.  Not much else I can say about this sweater than I haven’t already.  Cannot maintain gauge.  Keep ripping and restarting.  Determined to own this beauty.

In other, non knitting, news:

I was reading, and enjoying greatly, Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek but my husband reappropriated it.  If you can get through the first page without being compelled to read on you are made of sterner stuff than I.  So now rereading Fagles translation of The Iliad.  I had to dig it out of the middle child’s room.  Apparently they read Homer in High School these days since both Zoe and Tyler have read it.

Last week was a wash food wise.  My Lentil/Walnut/Mushroom burgers got overcooked and dry but I have made the recipe more than once so recommend it heartily.  You can find it in Vegan with a Vengeance.  I made a corn salad from Salad Samurai and it clocked in at @1200 calories a serving but was otherwise delightful.  Re that serving–recipe claims to make 2 servings but I think it could easily feed 4.  I trucked down to The Hill, our Italian neighborhood, to pick up more oil cured olives for Puttanesca sauce.  I serve it on pasta not quinoa.

yarny days and knitterly evenings

One thought on “A Lifeline

  1. I think the Puttanesca should be over pasta too. I like quinoa, but that seems to be more of a pasta sauce. Good idea on the life line. I need to remember to do those on complicated items too. Maybe a sticky note on the pattern would be a good reminder. Looks like I need to put another book on my reading list. Dillards Pilgrim sounds quite interesting.
