Progress, Slow But Steady

The Pirate learned a little bit about reading knit fabric yesterday, and can reliably identify a knit stitch and a purl stitch. When he asked about garter stitch and stockinette stitch he got a bit confused... I had trouble explaining adequately that we might call it 'stitch', but what we mean is stitch pattern.

We hope to get to the mechanics of actually producing a knit stitch today, and hopefully that will help to clear things up somewhat.


The house is full of smoke right now, but that's a good thing, because it is the by-product of the Pirate's activities in the kitchen: he fried up some very nice extra thick bacon that was just the right combination of chewy and crispy, he sauteed up a bunch of onion and garlic and mushrooms and other mixed veg, he added the veg mix to some nice eggs, added cheese, stuffed the results into a batch of tortillas, and is currently frying them up nice and crispy. Topped with our favorite salsa (or barbeque sauce, if one is the Vampire) and sour cream, this is Heaven, and Heaven is smokey. Live with it.

If The Pirate can do it, so can I, right?

I like a bit of smokiness to my food, I like to char eggplants in the oven to make baba ghanouj out of.

Great that he's learning to knit. It's wonderful to have something to do backstage, but, with his part, he probably doesn't have all that much time after all. Love to your all. Cuz
