My local Daughter in Law made a comment on how much she liked her daughter's seeded band hat I had made for her a couple of years ago. She wished she had one too. Well, HELLO! You don't need to hit me over the head to let me know that was a hint. I dug through my stash and found this lovely black yarn with sparkles in it. (Those white 'spots' are the sparkles) I decided to start it on Christmas eve afternoon and was lucky enough to finish Christmas morning in time to gift it to her later that day. She was so excited. She wore it all day long. She is a very knit worthy person. She and her mom both knit so she knows what goes into the craft.
Look at that beauty! That is the first boule of sourdough I have made that actually turned out and we could eat. I found the perfect recipe for the boule.........finally. The next sourdough I am making will be in the pullman loaf pan. I made it before but my starter was not truly ripe yet. It now has a wonderful sourdough taste to it so I am excited to make it again for sandwich bread. The boule was good to have as a side with our evening meals and I will be making it again too.
