In the Studio - Blue Cotton and Green Silk




Shawl, cotton, silk and a strand of lurex, woven (linen) stitch, size 7 nickle cable needle, 40 in.

At the time of this photo there are 12 rows to be done in order to complete the shawl and make it 70 or so inches long. The green silk and blue cotton are lovely together and make a firm fabric on the size 7 needle, which is on the small size.  I enjoy the tightness and weight of the fabric, which is great for summer.

Shawl, mixed fibers, rib stitch, size 8 aluminum needles - 14 in. At least 16 yarns comprise this fabric, so it requires a big bag to hold everything together.  That makes it less good for traveling or social knitting.  I...

I went with friends after the symphony and it was a wonderful place to have some wine and cider and talk about the concert.There's not a gigantic list of wine, but the menu totals six pages, so there is a lot of choice. They have very warm exposed brick and beams decor and in Troy that means 19th century industrial, perfect for steampunk aesthetic. We sat in the garden, where there was still enough light to actually read the menu. We had a cheese plate with 3 1.5oz servings of cheese with paired condiments and a charcuterie plate of 3 meats of the same serving size and we had brussels sprouts cole slaw with horseradish. We really enjoyed all the tasting and felt like it was a perfect light supper after our matinee. Even though they weren't very busy it took over a half hour for them to serve any of the food, so it's a great place to imbibe and nibble, maybe not a place to go when you are really hungry.

Pescaterian, Kosher, eclectic dishes, and attractive surroundings. The website is almost incomprehensible, and Sabbath is observed on Fridays/Saturdays on one page and then not on another, so you probably should call to see exactly what it is they mean. They claim that they buy local and care about sustainability if possible. You figure that one out. All that said, the food is good!

This Mexican grocer and taqueria is some place I will visit regularly! I got a large bag of blue corn tacos which are the perfect texture - something which can be oddly difficult to find. I also tried the chorizo and I will definitely be returning for more of that. They also have a variety of cheeses and frozen items. I suggest you check them out if you have any interest in Mexican food.. I found all kinds of wonderful foods that will enhance my attempts at Mexican cooking and I can't wait to try the tacos!!!

I've been a few times over the years and a recent experience helped me decide that they deserve five stars. The owners are a local couple who are really interested in good ice cream. It's not exactly a chain, but they do buy the ice cream from the original E&O owners in Massachusetts, and the huge variety of flavors as well as all the ice cream treats that they make are really good! I had my first egg cream and fell in love. When I tried the pomegranate milk shake I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. There is music weekly and in the summer there are tables outside. They just expanded the inside space so there's a nice amount of space inside as well. When you are out for a high quality ice cream treat, give them a try.

McGuire's was closed for renovations and developed a new concept in the mean time. The web has the new menu, which has a selection of small plates, some salads a soup and fish, chicken, beef and pork. I had a very nice small steak and lovely fish. I recommend everyone go try it. I found the service a little under-confident, something which can be fixed with proper management.

I finally checked them out over the weekend and really enjoyed looking at all the different kinds of products. Yes Vegemite and Marmite, and also many canned meats, fish, jellies, jams. , etc. The selection of biscuits is marvelous! It's mostly foods, which are of interest to me. I saw many candies that used to be commonly imported but no longer are, and also there is a freezer of meats, which I wish was much much larger. I selected a steak and kidney pie, which was delicious, and some bangers. The website is not good for meats - Brits R U.S.doesn't want to have to ship them because they are all frozen. So go to the shop and find some fun and yummy foods and other British goods. The people there are very very friendly and helpful.

I just went through their Pizza University class and spent three hours learning how they make dough, sauce and how they put it all together into stromboli, pizza and calzones. They REALLY CARE about the flavors that make up their menu items. They offer about 8 different kinds of crust, and they are constantly working to develop new pizza and stromboli combinations. This family knows how to have a good time with really good food and they want you to have a good experience. They look for highest quality ingredients and they try to give you the best that they can offer.
