I loathe tattoos, but if a gun was held to my head and I had to get one… I’d consider this.
I saw this post through a couple of links: imagine knitting a shawl from wool from your own sheep!
I’ve earmarked this pattern as a way to get back into knitting again. I was so busy last year I didn’t pick up the needles, but I still want to get rid of my yarn stash. Clearly, just thinking about knitting doesn’t actually reduce the size of it at all. Doesn’t seem fair, really. I have this morning off and so I might get around to actually going through the stash and pulling out some 8 ply. Might finally get that soap made, too…
I’m also going to try a new recipe for my sourdough starter. The one I was using takes a fair bit of mucking around, so I’m going to try something a little less involved. I came across a recipe on a new-to-me blog, from a woman who’s had her thermomix at least since 2009 , (that’s when her blog starts), so I’m thinking she must know what she’s talking about. I’ll have a go today and report back with how it goes.
I’ve made a couple of loaves from my starter and the texture is lovely, but the sourdough taste isn’t as strong as I’d like. I figure that it just has to get a bit older, perhaps…?
