A little pot

tiny pots

We went to find the second location of Sit 'n' Knit up in Wethersfield on Saturday. Turns out they moved into an upstairs location at the Comstock, Ferre & Co., which is the oldest continuously operating seed company in the United States. The tiny pots above are from there little greenhouse room on the back of the building.


There were also quite a few cacti and various succulents, and these cool collapsible bamboo trelli.

collapsed and expanded bamboo

Wethersfield just keeps getting better and better.

$titch 'n' Fish

Yarn/camera bag

Valex and Heather attempted to stop by the weekly meeting of the Middletown SnB on Saturday meeting, but we saw noone there. We still had a fine time, and maybe next time we'll send out word that we're planning on attending.

stitch and also bitch

Also, there is a battle raging over the "term" Stitch and Bitch, which is the title of this very popular book, Stitch 'n Bitch, but also has been layed claim to by a different company that wants to clamp down on the term useage and stop individuals and groups from using it to describe their little, or not so little gatherings for knitters. There is, of course, a boycott, let me be clear here, NOT OF THE BOOK BY DEBBIE STOLLER, but of the bullying company that claims they have the rights to the phrase. Anyway, the Middletown group (which meets in Cromwell?) has changed their name from Middletown SNB to Knitting in Middletown or some such thing due to the fact that bully has been shutting down Yahoo! Groups with the term in their title, etc.

Broiled salmon, yukons, salad w/tomato ginger dressing

After knitting time, we hopped in the wagon and headed north, to Wethersfield. Our destination was City Fish Market, where we procured catfish, salmon, tuna, and mussells. We steamed the mussells on Saturday night and ate them with olive oil ciabatta for dinner. The catfish is in the freezer, awaiting it's BBQ sauced fate, and the salmon I marinated overnight and broiled for last night's dinner. Poached is the easiest, but broiling is a very close second. The marinade included, but was not limited to, soy sauce, smashed garlic cloves, rice vinegar, red wine vinegar, toasted sesame oil, ginger slices, and salt and pepper. Served with yukon golds and a salad topped with a tomato ginger dressing I got at Bliss Market, which is where we stopped right after City Fish.

Sunday was all brunchin' and nappin'.
