Knitting Content

Tea:

Today’s tea is a from a fantastic local producer called Take Charge Tea. I’m drinking their Chaga with Cocoa Nibs, and it’s such a deliciously subtle flavor, good hot or cold. It has a taste somewhat like maple, but not cloyingly sweet or overly chocolatey. I apologize, apparently the website address on the back of the tea package, which I mentioned on the podcast, is no longer correct. They’re now at maidenkanadah.com!

Recipe Review:

This week, I made Filipino Chicken Adobo from the Two Sleevers blog. It’s a deceptively simple recipe – this version is done in the Instant Pot, and then put under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the skin. Who would have thought that only five or six ingredients would make such a fantastic meal? Mods I made included replacing the soy sauce with coconut aminos, since that’s all I had in the kitchen, and substituting apple cider vinegar for the white vinegar.

Podcasts:

selmaknits put out a new episode of the Little Big Knits podcast this week, Serenova put out a new episode of the Serenova Crafts podcast, and my lovely friend Kate put out a new episode of the Hawthorn Cottage Craft podcast. Please go show them some love!

What’s Going On:

Thanks to RabbitRibbit and krysknits for hanging out with me this week!!! ❤

I’m looking forward to the Twist Fibre Festival next weekend, and starting to plan for my RHINEBECK!! activities 🙂 If you’re thinking of heading to Twist next weekend, NatalieServant still has room in some of her classes. She’s a great teacher, and you should check out what’s still available 🙂

Wedding planning has started in earnest, so let me know if I start bombarding you guys with too much wedding garbage!

And big, huge, MEGA thanks to Rob for the early birthday present. I think the new camera made a huge difference, don’t you?
