I had fully intended to have some knitting to show you this week. However, Adam and I spent a long weekend on the coast of North Carolina visiting friends and enjoying the beach.
I suppose I could have taken my knitting to the beach with me but with the humidity as high as it was every day, the sand was sticking to everything. I took my book to the beach and even that came home full of sand.
I did a little work on my Spring Garden Tee during the long ride back to Ohio. And I do mean little. Waking up at 3am for a 10 and a half hour drive isn't quite as conducive to knitting as you would imagine.
This is how it looked when I got home on Monday. It pretty much still looks the same. On Sunday night I had encountered a knot in my yarn. This was the second knot in the fourth skein. I kept knitting and didn't think too much of it since it was hidden on the wrong side. Today however, I was knitting and suddenly came upon a giant hole in my fabric. The knot had come apart and undone my knitting about an inch and a half up. I had to frog back, fix the hole and knit on. So like I said, I'm pretty much in the same place as I had been.
In the last post, K. asked where I got my tiramisu recipe from. It is from a cookbook called Williams Sonoma Italian Favorites. The recipe calls for pound cake instead of lady fingers so I make my own pound cake for this. Also, to keep the pound cake from being too soggy, I use a pastry brush to dampen the cake with the coffee/sugar mixture instead of soaking it. This also helps it to keep better in the fridge. This is my all time favorite desert and I love to make it!
