new fingerless mittens i just made! i seem to have left all my notebooks at my parents’ house when i moved so i wrote the pattern on the margins of papers my bank gave me? possibly not my best idea but they were probably not important. they are really snug. like those compression gloves for arthritis patients snug. i used size 0 double pointeds with a yarn i usually use 6s on, that is probably why.

The weekend after Thanksgiving, when I was officially about ten weeks pregnant, I went on a bike ride in the rain with the boy whose genetic material was taking hold in my uterus. We rode together over the Golden Gate Bridge, and it started to rain. When I got tired part of the way up the Marin Headlands, he rode up behind me and started pushing me up the hill. He was so strong, and it was raining so hard, I felt like I was back in Oregon, where we’d met, and I thought about how nice it would be if I could just be in love with him. About what an athletic baby the little group of cells in my body would turn into. About how if I loved him, he would love me, and this little alien creature could turn into a human that absolved us both of the treacherous things we’d done to each other and to the people we loved. My legs were covered in mud, and my bike gloves felt like wet diapers, and I could imagine a little baby being born and everyone loving it and everyone knowing that I had slept with this guy and the story we told everyone would be about our complicated beginning, but the baby would make it okay. My dad as a grandpa. My brother, an uncle. My mom, the perfect grandma.

so my boyfriend went to turkey back in may, and he LOVED it. he won’t shut up about it. he already wants to go back. these are something that he ate there, they’re called sekerpare and they are very very good. most of the time when i try to make something that he has eaten before, it takes a few tries to find a recipe that measures up. but this time he said it was just like what he had in turkey! it’s supposed to be a whole hazelnut in the middle but those are expensive.
here is the recipe: http://lorensgem.hubpages.com/hub/TurkishDessertRecipeSekerpare
if you’re making them, be sure to really drown them in the syrup. i put them all in a dish and put enough syrup that there was a thin layer along the bottom.
