I'm immersed in nineteenth-century candy at the moment, tracking down leads on the origins of Turkish Delight and how it got to America. The talk is due on Saturday, but there's not much free time before then.
I'm also in search of cones for a cooking project. I went to just about every fancy schmanzy food store in the region and finally bought a cone of sewing thread for a serger, only to strip off all the thread. Now I've decided it's really too small for what I want.
I've been eyeballing the cone on which I have some Jacob yarn wound and telling myself not to be ridiculous.
It would be foolish, wouldn't it?
