It tastes OK, will get Charlotte's opinion tomorrow.
I didn't use freshly grated Parmesan, but some grated stuff I had in.
Taste test result later.
It was really easy to make...if you have all the right ingredients.
I like the taste of it.
Recipe found here!

I'm on the sleeves now, they are quite long, as they are worn rolled up when the baby is tiny, and unrolled as the baby grows. The pattern is on the Elann website. It suggests using two circular needles to knit it on, but I found using dp's at first worked, until it was large enough to fit on a circular needle. I'm really enjoying this project, it's the first time in ages I have knitted anything other than a scarf on dps. In fact until I got Knitting New Scarves last year, I hadn't used them very much, and only done a couple of Nordic jumpers on circular needles. This should be finished, probably on Thursday evening, as I seem to have beaten the lurgy I have had for the past week, just left with erratic temperature.

I probably should transfer it from my dps to a circular needle, but I have two repeats on each dp, which makes counting easier.
This is the first time I have made a flat round garment knitting in the round. There is an adult version of the jacket, so it might be a possible project in the future.
I received the latest copy of "The Knitter" at weekend, and there are at least two projects I would like to tackle, the Miss Galloni shrug, and the Savannah bolero. (I knew knitting something circular required practise, and had cast on the pinwheel jacket before I saw "The Knitter")
Progress has been very slow this week, seeing as I have spent more time asleep than awake.
Photos of work to date soon, but the scarf is with it's owner, Becki, already, and she loves it. One of her friends asked where she had bought it from, and the friend had trouble getting her head around the fact that the scarf had been MADE for her....this friend must think clothes grow on trees...ready made somewhere!

I have also finished the fisherman's rib scarf for Becki.
Photos of both tomorrow evening.
Unsure of next project as yet, but am considering pinwheel sweater...for babies
I seem to know a few peeps who are "in waiting" right now.
In fact, one colleague is due around Easter...but docs worried that baby ain't growing well. erm!
She's tiny build..and her husband ain't a Jolly Green Giant!
Am sure baby is OK, she is radiant at mo.
