Sorry It Took So Long
September 18, 2009
You saw this coming, right? The knitting of fruits? This one was is based on the Per Orla dishcloth pattern.
I hate to be so predictable. I bet y’all have had a pool going. Whoever bet on “September 17” and “plum” takes all.
What’s next? Kiwi? Acai berries, or whatever form of fruit acai is? (I don’t even know what acai looks like; I think it might spring from the earth in the form of smoothies.) I really couldn’t tell you. The plum might be my last Knitted Fruit. You never know.
Seeking Cake Recipe
Hey, all you bakers: I am looking for a link to a plum cake for tomorrow’s Rosh Hashana eve feast. I am already making an apple tart, so no tarts. Cake. I want cake. Rich but not elaborate. A plumcentric kind of cake. (I’m thinking of this one, from Nigel Slater. Things just taste fancier when you use metric measurements, don’t you think? All European and stuff.)
