Surely There's an Ointment for That

Life around these parts has been pretty docile as of late. There's been a lot of baking of bread. A Lot. I mean like everyday. I've gotten to the point where I'm really tired of eating bread but I just can't stop until I make a decent loaf. I'm getting there.

I also took advantage of summer by reading a non-school book, Chuck Palahniuk's "Snuff", which is about a porn star's attempt to break the gang bang world record (hint: 600). Read it before Oprah's bookclub ruins it with a raving endorsement.

And look! Yarn!

The reasons I'm excited about using the Noro sock yarn are the same reasons many people hate it. I love crunchy wool yarn and the fact that it's single-ply makes me swoon. As always, check back when I have blisters running along the tops of my fingers and the yarn has broken for the 300th time.

Keep knitting y'all!

Just slather some bag balm on there and keep going! Good luck with your bread endeavor--have you ever tried that book 'Bread Alone'? It's a good one.

Ooh, that noro sock yarn is is beautiful, I love the colourway you chose! I hear you about the roughness though- I find socks are murder on my hands!

noro sock yarn is kinda sadistic, but in a good way? have you tried the no knead bread recipes yet? super easy :-)

Noro has such beautiful colors... how could anyone not love it! Although I'm not a fan of how my fingers feel afterwards nor the way it easily breaks. But I just can't resist those colors!
