Just gorgeous colours for Yarn Along

I was at The Knitting Basket yesterday and took this photo for this week's blog post:
The colours are just gorgeous aren't they?  The Knitting Basket's blog post will be posted on Thursday, but pop by to see what other posts there are.

Meanwhile I haven't done too much knitting this week.  Made a start on this little hat for a newborn due in October. Knitting with Baby Rico, 100% cotton. I did though read this book, which is three books in one.  Suffice to say I have been "home vacation-sick" for Charleston, South Carolina all week.  I am sure if we hadn't booked to go to Lancaster, PA; we would have booked to go to Charleston, I love that part of the world........well minus the no-see-ums!
Finally it doesn't get any better than this. Cauliflower with cheese sauce and fresh baked bread straight out of the bread maker.

BY THE WAY THIS IS MY 2,500TH POST TODAY!!

Oooh fresh bread.

Anne in the kitchen said...

Those are beautiful yarn colors. It almost makes me wish I could knit!

Craig said...

The yarn colours are spectacular. We love our bread out of the machine too and as an accompaniment to cauliflower cheese it sounds great!

Pretty colored yarn Gill. I am not a knitter and have often said I would like to learn. Last picture looks yum.

EG CameraGirl said...

The yarn colours are luscious! And that cauliflower dish looks scrumptious!

A good mystery, knitting and fresh bread. What could be better. I have put that book on my list to possibly read. I could use a mystery.

Congrats on your post. I love yarn... can't knit, though.
Your Amazon ad was for age spots. Sorta strange juxtaposition!

Donna said...

Very pretty yarn! My daughter would love that cauliflower dish. I would eat the entire loaf of that bread!

Caroline said...

Love those colours!! I can also practically smell the bread from here ;-) yum!

That silk bamboo is one of my favorite yarns to knit with. I made my daughter an Aviatrix with that yarn when she was one. She can still wear it four years later because it ended up being a stretchy yarn on her head.

Betsy said...

Three of my favorite things today. A good book, beautiful yarn and bread straight from the oven. Yummy! Those yarn colors are so bright.
Blessings,
Betsy

The yarn colours are beautiful! The cauliflower/cheese looks delicious. Looks like a yummy meal. Congratulations on your 2,500th post!

Sarah said...

Yummy! I want your meal now! Love the colors of all that yarn- that's also yummy!

William Kendall said...

My mother usually made cauliflower with a white sauce, but every once in awhile would go for a cheese sauce instead. Delicious!

I can just imagine cats unravelling all that yarn...

Lisa said...

Congrats on your 2500th post! Wow!!!

Beautiful colors and delicious looking things to eat. :)

Woot! A rainbow stash of yarn! You can never have too much yarn! (I'm told I do...But really it's only like 20 skeins! That's not much, right? LOL) I love roasting cauliflower in the oven with olive oil and a little salt and pepper then pouring some melted Velveeta on it. (No, not the healthiest cheese, but so good! Well, I like it! LOL)

I love reading the Laura Childs books ... tea shop, scrapbooking mysteries and more.
Cauliflower cheese looks delicious, haven't made it for ages.

Caffeine Girl said...

That is a beautiful pyramid of yarn! I haven't knit with bamboo yet, but that stack sure makes me want to.
I have never been to Charleston, but it's on my bucket list!

Rose said...

You will know my brain is dead when I tell you I didn't know what book you were talking about till I read a comment above and went back and looked. In all honesty, I only had eyes for that soft yellow colored yarn you are using...I love that color. Will have to look for some of her books at the digital library...whenever I get any time to read that is!

Marilyn K said...

Beautiful yarn! Cauliflower and the bread look sooo yummy. I think I must have some soon.

Gillian said...

I'd never heard of no-see-ums before! Looked them up on Google - glad we don't have them here. I love freshly baked bread.

Simply Playing said...

I love that series by Laura Childs - very fun to read. Your food looks too yummy for words!

Susan said...

Those colors are so inspiring! Do you know what the yarn will be yet?
