Woops… did I say knitting bread? I meant knitting… and baking bread! Or did I?
Last night I whipped up the second batch of dough from my Artisan bread in five minutes cook book. It’s sitting on the counter rising as we speak… I’m perfecting the recipe… what I mean by that is this time I put in enough yeast, but the lid on the container I bought doesn’t seal well, so the dough became a bit dried out while in the fridge overnight. I’ve combatted that in the meantime with plastic wrap, but I really should just get a proper dough bucket… apparently they have them at Williams-Sonoma…. and because I am physically made of money, that is exactly where I will buy my dough bucket… NOT! LOL… I will try walmart first!
I’ve also been epically knitting along on my blanket…. partially because I want to get it done and partially because I did something yesterday that shall not be spoken of, but requires that I finish the damn thing quicker than originally hoped for… way to go me!
I have to put the dough baby in the oven in five minutes, so I’m off to clean up my kitchen and play with the blankie while it bakes… but I shall leave you with this:
Knitting with dough, while difficult is do-able… I did three backwards loop castons and one and a half rows of garter stitch…. and then the whole thing stuck to my plastic needles and I got mad and ripped it off. Evidence suggests that you can also weave with dough… so I did… note the fringe!
Oh and I’m doing this for a contest I’m in… I’m not really nuts…. sort of!
