Happy Turkey Day

Thanks to Bakerella for the idea!

These were so much fun to make- and easy, too. Bake a box mix cake, mix it up with some frosting, roll the cake into balls, stick a pop in them, toss them in the freezer for a bit. Then dip the pops in melted chocolate and let them cool. I glued on the parts- a peanut butter Whopper for the face, a chocolate covered sunflower seed for the nose, and an upside-down sugar heart for the wattle- with some more melted chocolate. They looked pretty cute but they tasted divine!

I can't wait to see what she comes up with for Christmas- I'll definitely be making whatever it is. I love crafty food stuff- I have so much fun baking.

My most favorite yarn

I have no idea what kind of yarn it is, what brand, or what the fiber composition is. But it is maroon, and soft, and I love it. I think it wants to be a hat.

Frogging already

I made a long,thick, glorious, soft scarf in Rowan Big Wool Arctic. I unfortunately did not join the two skein ends together, so I ended up with big ugly pieces that need to be woven into the rest of the scarf. That did not go well, so I think I am going to tear the whole thing out and start over again. It only took a few hours to make, and the yarn is so delicious that I won't mind making it over again. I almost want to keep on tearing it out and re-doing it just so I can feel the yarn!

I found a cheap Internet source for more Rowan Big Wool. TROUBLE.

I have a problem.

I love yarn. I've only been knitting for a few weeks, but I already have a 20-gallon Rubbermaid tote that is full of yarn. And a basket. And a tote bag. I have two finished scarves, two in progress, and grand plans for baby hats. We'll see how it goes.
