Homemade Sourdough

Tuna on Homemade Sourdough

Tuna Salad on my own homemade sourdough bread. We’ve got the taste and texture down now. Next up is the shape – I’ll be baking in loaf pans next time. Unless the bread machine surprises us and arrives early!

It grows. I’m about 18 rows away from where I stop decreasing, and start increasing.

This is a fun project so far, and I’m loving the way the colors work together!

Rattie Luceteers

The Rattie Siblings have taken an interest in that new fiber craft of mine. Especially in my homemade lucet.

At least, I’m going to pretend that they’re more interested in participating in Mom’s hobbies than that they like the smell of the latex-based adhesive in the grip tape I used in the lucet.

The current project on the lucet is a cord made from Sockotta sock yarn. It’s coming out very nicely. I’d say it’s about shoelace weight, which leads to the interesting concept of matching your shoelaces to your socks!

Glue sniffing rats? Uh, I hope not! Although their attempts to make off with the loot is entertaining.

Do you think Clinton and Stacey (What Not To Wear) might say that making your socks and laces match is too matchy matchy? Of course you could make them complement each other. Argh, it makes my head hurt.
