Memorial Day weekend, my sister and I had a whirlwind trip to Brooklyn. We ate perfect food at perhaps my favorite breakfast establishment (anywhere?) and I have to share it. We didn’t order anything I hadn’t had before, but that’s because I love the things we did eat so much.
Please enjoy these photos of our breakfast. YUM!
coffee and beignets
biscuits and vegetarian gravy (w/ mushrooms) and caramelized grapefruit with brown sugar and mint
eggs rothko - brioche with egg over easy under melted cheese, with candied bacon and a broiled tomato
requisite table-top portrait - sisters
So for a long time, I’ve been working on a knitting project, but it was a gift, so I didn’t want to spoil it too too much by posting about it prematurely. But it’s finished! And it’s been gifted! So I’m very pleased to present this finished product, and to finally tag a post on my blog in my knitting category. Long overdue!
The sweater is called Liesl, from Ysolda, and I started it through a class at Stitch DC. The class and instructor were both lovely, and I really enjoyed the experience. In terms of finishing the sweater however, I was still furiously knitting during her graduation ceremony… But I really love how it turned out. I used Karabella Windy (100% cotton) in blue, and it was great to work with, although everything I wore during the knitting process is now covered in blue fuzz.
