A Little


"Or make an omelet but leave it unfilled and unfolded. Flat, round omelets are quiet, and a little serious."

I think I might be a little in love with this book, and this writer. Tamar Adler speaks of food in a way that sings to me, with poetry and humour and great common sense. I am not yet halfway through, but already I am saving my broccoli stalks and taking pause before cracking an egg to consider my intentions.

I might also be a little in love with this yarn, soft and calm and coloured this time. I am knitting a special order of hat and boots for a baby boy in New Jersey. One boot to go and it'll be on its way, in time for the February chill.

  2. A taste of poetry, sounds intriguing.

    The green is beautiful for a boy. I found it difficult to pick from the beautiful colours in your shop. I reasoned that they would all look wonderful and chose the teal as something a bit different than my usual choices. :)

  3. PS. After posting about the knitting black hole this morning I managed to knit my way out of it during the day and this evening. I have just cast off on the blanket and it is ready to be gifted to a little boy. I have another blanket in mind to cast on now! :)

  9. That book sounds like just my sort of thing. Sitting in bed with a cookery book (especially a well written one), a pack of post-it notes and a pen is one of my favourite things to do.
