finding answers

Googling is pretty awesome.
My recent google searches:
*pickled beets, *golf courses conneaut lake, *volant pa, *making a stitch in a purl stitch, *plymouth baby alpaca grande tweed, *twinkle pattern corrections, *how to make buttermilk, *vanilla cake recipe, *nectar of the gods leave in conditioner
I did make pickled beets, my Dad's favorite. I ordered some new (delicious) yarn and this pattern. I learned that I can make buttermilk if needed. I bagged baking the cake and bought one instead.
Have a wonderful weekend!

the baby grande alpaca is DELICIOUS!!! to knit with. I knit the Owls sweater for my sister last year for Christmas in color 100. It's a dream.

Casey said...

I am liking that pattern. Thanks!

Agreed, Googling is awesome. Beets look good, yarn looks good... I guess I need to put my Googling to use like you do!

Jess said...

As we drove home the kids asked me if clams had eyes and google immediately sprang to mind.

Kate said...

Buttermilk = 1 tbs vinegar, add milk to measure 1 cup.

Gretchen said...

Yum!!!! I just discovered my love of beets. Apparently it's good for your blood. Whatever that means :)

so good to have google, isn't it? If you go to Volant...go to Volant Mills and walk around and then eat at Rachel's Roadhouse. They have the best food. We used to escape over their when we had some free time in college.

Yum! Beets! I prefer roasted beets (golden and red) sliced real thin, with a little blue cheese, some toasted chopped almonds, some lava salt, and a little fresh basil....oh, my! Picked beets sound delicious though. I just took my dogs for a walk and while I was walking I thought about the last time I picked up some yarn and needles. Yikes. Must be the heat. My daydreaming was rudely awakened by a German Shepard that decided we might make tasty snacks...

Have a great weekend and thanks for sharing. Always an inspiration. :-)

Ooooo - I've made a comfy shawl a few years ago with that lovely baby alpaca grande and it is still the softest yummiest yarn I have EVER knit with. Love your pattern choice!!

RW said...

My dad loved pickled beets too. I didn't feel the love though. I google for things so much. After seeing your slouchy cardigan I think I need to make one.

ColorSlut said...

I love beats. YUMMY! Your sweater is going to be so so soft. Alpaca rocks.

i love being able to google...yesterday i was looking at yarn overs...i was knitting but also needed to slip a stitch, when i did a yarn over my way i was losing it (dropping a stitch) around the slipped stitch. when i googled i realized i needed to do my yarn over the other way and the problem was solved! so cool. thank you google!

I Google more than I wind up doing all the time.

Seanna Lea said...

Very nice. I spent my hot days using the slow cooker and trying not to bake. Instead, the stovetop was going almost nonstop for batches of ice cream. French-style ice cream is delicious, but is more work than most of the American style recipes. Yum!

Hilary said...

You've gotta love Google. :) And how amazing do those beets look?!

Lisa said...

It's how I knew my guy loved me...when he asked me to google something for him. He said, "Google me this."

ali@skeinsherway said...

While I've never pickled beets, I do love to culture my own buttermilk! I don't think I could ever go back now that I know how easy it is and how yummy it turns out! And I love cooking and baking with buttermilk...

Jessica said...

I can't count how many times I google things a day!

iknitipurl said...

Yum, pickled beets! My husband hates beets but I think they're yummy :)

jayayceeblog said...

Thank God for Google! That pattern is sooooo cute. Can't wait to hear how you like it as you're working on it and see it finished! I love beets but my Hubby gags at the thought of them. {sigh}

Caroline said...

Your blog is always so inspirational. We just bought some beets at a farmer's market. My husband likes to bake them with potatoes, onions, and carrots...and ham, but since my daughter is a vegetarian, the pickled beets sounds better!
