xtina’s complusions to obsessively knit

I never have to eat again… July 18, 2007

Filed under: New Purchases,WIP — iamknit @ 10:27 pm

First, look at what I received at work yesterday:


5 magazines from Interweave Knits 5 for 4 sale or, as Roc from my work called them, my porn.

That’s about it for my knitting news. I’m still working on the Dalegarn baby dress but it’s really slow. The dress is 240 stitches around and the yarn’s gauge is 32 stitches/inch. I’ll have an updated picture in my next post.

Now onto my dinner:

Tonight my friend, John, and I celebrated our 10 year Friendiversary (it was actually back on May 24th but we couldn’t get our act together) and we went to La Campania in Waltham. Here is what I had:

Some sort of soft fried cheese on a bed of prosciutto made especially for us (John’s family knows the head chef and he served us all our food personally)

Hand-Cut Potato Gnocchi “Trifolati”
w/ Sautéed Wild Mushrooms, Shaved “Crotonese” Cheese, Drizzle of White Truffle Oil and he also added another gnocchi in a meat sauce with vegetables

Oak Grilled Beef Tenderloin
Neapolitan Potato “Gateau”, Grilled King Oyster Mushroom, Black Truffle “Carpaccio” and Cream Reduction

an incredibly expensive bottle of wine


Hot Chocolate Soufflé
w/ Vanilla Bean Gelato and Hot Chocolate Ganache’

Like I said, I never have to eat again…
