Simple Sunday: Stitching & Soup

The weather is just gorgeous…cool, in the 50’s – perfect for brisk walking. After a good walk I settled in for a day of hobbies. I’m working on fingerless gloves, in homespun yarn – so soft and fuzzy.
Making some for charity, Midnight Run who help the homeless. Others I will sell. Another WIP (work in progress) is this Cowl in Pink, Homespun)

I got a late start getting my crock pot loaded – this is an easy peasy no-fail soup!

Potato, Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

30 oz. (approx 1 1/2 lbs) of shredded potatoes
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 frozen box of broccoli
12 oz shredded cheddar cheese
6 cups of water or any broth (I used water and it was yum!!)
1 t. salt
1/2 t black pepper

Literally dump all the ingredients into the Crock Pot
Add 6 cups of water/broth
Cook on High for 4 hours or Low for 8 hours

  1. Are you using patterns or just making them up as you go along? Either way, nice work!

  2. Thank you Alexis! I adapted a fingerless pattern that works well for me. For the cowl as well.
