Another way of casting on knitting (in the round) using two different color skeins of yarn. called two color cast-on. No waste of yarn or trying to estimate how much yarn to use for the cast-on. I like using two colors to make baby hats.
I’m also on a roll making my multi-colored Granny Square Crochet baby blankets….using Premier Everyday Soft Worsted Yarn. Luxurious, soft yarn… love working with it! A new fav of mine.
I love Autumn.
Here in NY we did not see the usual bursting colors of bright Gold or Red leaves this year – not enough cool weather nor rain. But, it’s Fall.
I started a nice cozy, bulky cowl ,in this beautiful Green. Housed in my new Sheep project bag. I’m using #11 needles and knitting in the round, knit, knit, knit, knit…
The Farmer’s Market is winding down for the Season. I’ve stocked up on Cilantro and Red & Yellow Peppers …going to try my hand at canning small jars of Sofrito….we’ll see how that goes!
Spring is in the air in NY! After a nice Sunday morning walk, it’s knitting & cooking for the rest of the day. I’m making a few meals, for the week – including roasted chicken and turkey meatloaf.
1 lb of ground Turkey – you can make a larger loaf with more Turkey.
Add 1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 of a Green/Red/Yellow Pepper (diced)
3 cloves of fresh garlic
1/2 t of both garlic powder & onion powder
1 t of Mustard (whichever you prefer) 1 t of Ketchup
1/2 cup of raw Oatmeal
Salt & Black Pepper
Cover in foil and bake at 350 – approx 35 -45 minutes or until done.
You cna make a sauce to cover the meatloaf using ketchup, mustard to cover the entire loaf and bake during the last 1o minutes.
My current WIP:
On my circular needles: the Red White & Blue newborn baby hats (for our hospital charity project). I had a random ball in my stash but this Red Heart Yarn batch is years old and has shorter color striping resulting in a spiral look.
