The Chanel-ish Cardigan Jacket is finished. I ended up have a little more than five yards of the grey yarn.

Maybe I should have trusted Knit Pick's site. But, a line from animal House kept ringing through my head, "You fucked up. You trusted us." So, I'll have an extra skein of grey arriving on Tuesday. I started this sweater in November of 2006. I set it down to get some Christmas knitting done. That' when it went to the Stall Wall.

Sam went to the Farmer's Market on Saturday while I was working and brought back some blueberries and a ginormous head of cabbage along with the tomatoes and corn I sent him after. We had grilled corn on the cob, Cole slaw, and grilled sausages for dinner. I only used half of the head of cabbage and ended up with a plethora of slaw.

Sam requested a Blueberry Cheesecake, which I made today. I used Barbara's Universal Cheesecake recipe. I've been obsessing over her recipes. Every single one has been a winner.

I also baked some bread using this recipe. It was a gloppy mess. I thought for sure it would be a flop. But, it turned out well. Next time, I'll remember to use the no-stick foil instead of the kitchen towels it calls for. I'm soaking my towels right now because the dough stuck to everything that was near it.

I've also started on this rye bread. It takes several days to make because you have to make a rye sour. I hope it turns out well because rye bread is my favorite.
