Earlier this week I watched Knitty Gritty with Iris Shreier teaching modular knitting. She demo’s this little coaster and since I had the exact yarn called for in my stash I thought it would make a great Knitter’s Tea Swap gift. Iris said you could get five of these from a skein and that once you get comfortable with the pattern you can whip one out in about 15 minutes. I’m not sure I’ll ever be that quick but I’m sure I’ll get faster as I go along. Thanks to Oiyi who sent me a skein of Artyarns merino in this beautiful blue along with a gorgeous scarf from ISE2 last February.
For dinner last night I wrapped chicken cutlets around pieces of fontina cheese then wrapped that package in thin slices of pancetta and pan fried them. I broiled a bit of asparagus to go alongside and then completely forgot to make my salad. No one seemed to notice and the chicken disappeared pronto.
