Fingerless glove

looking for what's missing... I'm a knitting, spinning, mother of teenagers with a big dog, a small cat, minus the lovely rabbit Meliflua.

Right now I'm listening to "An Irish Country Village" by Patrick Taylor, reading "Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake" by Anna Quindlen and knitting Wisconsin Wintersocks. And casting off the lace shawl I've been working on since I last posted.

Dampfnudeln


It is a rare treat when my knitting (or sewing or cooking or life in general ... ) comes together just the way I envisioned.
Angel Pearls Beaded Scarf is that rare treat. It is almost enough to make me use a real camera. I promise, when I'm finished I will. This scarf deserves it. Meanwhile, this is what my phone sees:


Which is why I am dreaming of dampfnudeln. Dampfnudeln are tasty, steamed bun-like dumplings. In 1982, I bought one from a street vendor in Kaiserslautern, Germany. It was angel-light, barely sweet, moist, pale, yeast perfection. Like anything magical, when I went looking I could never find the kiosk again. Knitting this scarf is like that: something I expect to remember fondly 25 years later.

Pretty. I missed seeing it in person, other than flashing by. Maybe next month.

I knit a scarf once. It looked like crap.

I went on line to check out recipes for dampfnudeln and after perusing the first 10 out of 145,000 on line recipes posted I decided it was a bit too labor intensive. I'll have to look for a German bakery somewhere.
