A culinary break from my fiber immersion

As you know, I am a huge fan of The Splendid Table. I woke up early on Sunday, began my fiber immersion day (more about that later) and listened to old episodes of The Splendid Table. Several weeks ago I listening to Lynn talking with Sally Schneider. Sally was explaining that souffles are actually easy to make. I used her recipe/guidelines and made a lovely cheese souffle. So lovely that I woke up the next morning and made a chocolate souffle.

So, when I started to get hungry yesterday, I thought, "How about a cheese souffle and a lovely Honey Crisp apple for lunch?"

Back to my fiber day! My craft room had turned into a dumping ground. I plead injury since I had put out my back and it had taken several weeks to get it back in shape. It took the entire day but I'm happy to report that I have things back under control!! I know I keep mentioning my iTouch application, Knit Buddy, but I can tell you that I use it constantly. Take a look at it if you have an iTouch or iPhone.

I finished my Circle Socks and I am now working on a pair of Child's First Sock from Vintage Socks by Nancy Brown. The pattern name is a bit deceiving. It was originally a child's sock but Nancy has reworked it to fit a woman's foot.

I am using Angora Frost from Windsor Farms Rabbitry that I purchased at Sock Summit. I had thought to use the vendor's pattern but I wanted to try Nancy's design. I like that there is a lot of open space for the angora fibers to fill out once I wash the socks. I only have a bit of K1b, p1 ribbing so I haven't taken a photo yet.

Your souffles look yummy! I think I would like making them. I think we all need to have a fiber day to get things back to normal, yarn, needles, fiber, etc have been flying around my house for weeks, and I hardly know where anything is. I bet the Angora Frost yarn will make delicious socks. --S
