Dry me a river

Malabrigo Rios* blankie before the blocking: it looks like the side view of the grater we used to get lemon zest for our clafoutis. Latest batch: fresh blueberry.

(Pro tip: if you use the springform pan out of sheer habit like I did, and you, um, don’t get the bottom snapped on quite right, a quick cookie sheet under there before putting it in the oven and then you’ll have a giant popover! And clafouti too! All of it good and you get to enjoy it sooner, too.

And…the blankie after the blocking. I love how it looks like fireflies coming out to play.


(*Rios means rivers in Spanish.)

Beautiful blanket! I love how a thorough blocking transforms knitting.

Fireflies! This is just the time of year when they provide their light show here.

So pretty! And it may – MAY – have inspired me to finish the neverendingblanket up here too.
