I.made.yogurt (directions from Liz at PocketFarm.com) And it was such a smashing success that I will likely try to make cheese next.
Although I personally would like my yogurt to come out a bit thicker and creamier, the kids give it a thumbs up (mixed with a bit of strawberry jam or a sprinkle of sugar and some pure vanilla extract) I'll have to play with ingredients a bit and see if I can get something a tad thicker.
Here I was thinking that a full batch would be too much for us (or rather, fearful that it wouldn't turn out and no one would eat it) But here is jar 2 of 2, already dipped into.. it won't last past lunchtime.
Last night, while I waited out the period of time that the yogurt needed to sit and fester, I picked up my knitting basket. Originally I planned on casting on the Wing Of The Moth shawl. I had my pattern, my needles, and my chosen yarn all ready to go. But I kept messing up the first few rows. Seriously, how do you not once, not twice, but 5 times consecutively end up with either one less or one too many stitches by the 5th row? I figured it was a sign, and picked up my Flower Basket shawl instead. On the 10th repeat, and damn is it taking forever to finish a repeat now. I noticed how my ball of yarn is shrinking at this point. So I may only get 12 repeats done before I need to start the edging, and thats not a bad thing. It means I'm nearly done!
