I had snails in Paris once. I was about thirteen at the time and I recall so vividly how they were served in a miniature ceramic bun tray with a two-pronged fork. They reeked of garlic and their texture was that of a large, chewy mushroom. My dad kept bumping the table and saying, look! Did you see that one move?
Just a few more ferns to go and the first one will be finished. I was really surprised how quickly it started to move along once I got into it.
Thankfully, I’ve never seen elephant on a menu… but I like them just as much.
I’m thinking about a little girls cardigan. Circular yoke, cream and pink trim.
Remember those Yarn Forward patterns I was talking about? Well, this is the Spring issue cardigan.
The Summer issue top ended up looking like this.
The photography was a little underlit so I regret not taking better photos myself. I usually finish up these things the night before they have to be sent off, at which point I just want to package them up and not fumble about with a tripod in my pyjamas! Anyway, it’s always nice to see one’s name in print.
In case I forget to tell you – I’m going to Thailand next Friday. Going to the States last month was quite a last minute decision whereas going to Thailand has been on the cards for at least a year. I’m going with Alb, thankfully. I’ve had my vaccinations – hepatitis, typhoid, dyphtheria, tetanus, polio – which probably explains why I was feeling a bit off last week. At least I didn’t get typhoid or something. When I got my mumps booster in college, I woke up the following morning with mini-mumps and was completely deaf for two days.
