a secondary purpose for knitting needles

Apparently, knitting needles are quite versatile. Not only can they be used to create delicious knitted items; now the can be used to create delicious, homemade cheese!

Here I am perforating a wedge of castle blue with this knitting needle. The intent is to expose some of the interior to the outside air so that the blue mold will grow inside the cheese as well as outside. I've already got some of the blue mold starting to proliferate on the outside, and it's getting moldier every day:

I love blue cheese. Mmmm. It can be pungent when eaten on its own, but I don't think there's anything better than homemade mac and cheese made with blue cheese. I hope this turns out.


PS. James and I were hoping for a Halloween baby. I think James moreso than I. Unfortunately, Halloween has come and gone, and still no baby. This did, however, afford us the opportunity to rock our awesome Juno/Bleeker costumes last night (I didn't end up getting any great pictures with just the two of us, so this will do). I think James really enjoyed rocking his short shorts.
