The Splendid Table...

I am a true fan of NPR and listen whenever I have a chance. Unfortunately the signal is a bit weak - or shall we say non-existent at the cottage so I have been going through withdrawl. This past weekend I got lucky enough to hear a bit of The Splendid Table and they were discussing the best coffee maker and debating ways to brew coffee.

They interviewed Tom Owens of Sweet Marias Coffee and I could practically smell the coffee brewing as they debated the best way to brew a pot of coffee.

you can pop over to the splendid table and listen to the interview.

then let me do you brew your coffee??

Knit One... Purl Two

so.. do you knit?? I can do the basics and a few years ago spent lots of time knitting wool bags to felt. It was a slight addiction I think. My piles of Black Sheep wool can attest to that! But then sadly the lure of the sewing machine siren became louder than the lure of the knitting needles and I have been woefully negligent of my yarn stash...

but...then this gorgeously tempting photo arrived in my inbox

it is a new pattern available at knitwhits or for free in the fall issue of Knitty

so...tell me...does it tempt you too???
