I spent the morning yesterday working on getting my first two bobbins of the Corriedale singles plied. I have about 320 yards of lovely 2-ply with just a touch of extra twist. It measures 16 WPI for what it's worth. I think that's a very subjective measurements but if I do it every time I spin it'll gradually come to have some meaning for me. This feels like sportweight to me and I have vague notions that the Katharine Hepburn Cardigan might a nice pattern for it.
Part of our meat csa share this month was ribs. They baked up beautifully and paired nicely with crab cakes, fresh corn and German potato salad. Daniel specifically requested the chocolate pomegranate torte we'd had at Christmas so I made that again. I had to thicken the pomegranate jelly with cornstarch instead of cranberries but otherwise stuck to the original recipe.
2 pounds pork ribs
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 tablepsoons half-sharp paprika
Preheat the oven to 200F. Mix spices thoroughly in a small bowl and then sprinkle ribs liberally on both sides with the rub. Bake on a foil lined sheet at 200F for 3 hours. Now crisp them up on the grill 5-10 minutes per side, basting with your favorite vinegar sauce if desired.
