Yesterday’s lunch: must-have pasta.


about 8 oz. spaghetti, linguine, or other pasta

1-2 cloves garlic

scant 1/4 cup olive oil

about 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1/2 cup grated parmesan

1 tsp red pepper flakes

Boil the pasta in salted water; meanwhile, microplane the garlic cloves into the olive oil, and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Drain the pasta. Saute the garlic mixture in the now-empty pasta pot for a minute or two. Toss the garlic mixture, cheese, and parsley with the pasta and eat immediately.

Yesterday’s knitting: must-have cardigan.

Yarn: Cascade 220

Mods: continental/english cast-on (from Nancy Bush’s Folk Socks) for 2×2 ribbing, a bit of finagling to make the ribbing flow into the cables smoothly, mirrored cables.

Perhaps it’s not the most practical thing to be knitting at the beginning of the summer, but what can I say? I needed some cables in my life, and this pattern is perfect.

I haven’t forgotten about the Waterlily Cabled Pullover (or the WIP list, ahem); log cabin update coming soon!

  1. That pasta was delicious, I must say! I hope you’ll make it again. 🙂
