Sea Creatures Eat Love Buns

Just remember that next time you’re trying to catch a glimpse of the Loch Ness Monster.

However, if you’re not planning a trip to Scotland with Moravian Love Buns in tow, you can knit your own Nessie and call it a day:

I LOVE IT when customers send me pictures of what they’ve knit with my yarns.* So often, I send yarns like Biohazard out into the world and never know what became of them. It is always a pleasure to see the end result of our collaborative effort. Thank you so much for sharing, Jenny!

Jenny’s Flickr is here where you will find reference to the designer of the pattern she used as well as photos of her other lovely projects.

So, about those Buns…

The baking has not stopped around here. In fact, we try to make every Tuesday “Baking Day,” and yesterday was no exception. C was inspired to bring out an old family favorite, Garden Way Publishing’s Bread Book: Recipes for All Seasons. Sadly, this book has been out of print for a long time, and I can’t find any info on the web unless you want to pay over a hundred bucks for it used on Amazon. It’s full of amazing bread recipes, including these:

How can you go wrong with “large puffy sweet rolls of ineffable goodness?”

Even though we decided not to make this an experiment of the gluten-free variety (read: no buns for me), I got plenty of satisfaction just watching the boys at work:

…and, of course, the glee-filled Boy enjoying a warm bun with his breakfast after the overnight proofing.

Tomorrow, I will share my resolutions, send off some packages and make good on some lingering obligations. There is much to look forward to in the New Year, and I’m ready to start it off with a clean slate and a fresh, shiny positive attitude. Whoot!

*so, send more! If you have a project, I want to see it!

  1. I love Nessie! I heard Jenny talking about it on Stash & Burn but words just don’t do it justice.

    My husband has several skeins of your yarn stashed away but he did knit up Subversive into a Wonky Cowl…
