Lizard Longies

As soon as I received this Purewool, I was in love. It is the softest wool I have ever felt! I can't wait to try other colorways! I would love to try Cestari and Malabrigo wools too, especially if they are as soft as this purewool. This colorway is called Mysterious, and I chose it because green is my favorite colour :) but as soon as I started knitting this up I knew how I was going to embellish it. I added a matching cargo pocket, and as I was thinking about the little boy who might wear these, I crocheted a little lizard to go along with them!

These are a size large. These will be listed on Hyenacart and Etsy tonight.

Pumpkin Loaf Recipe

Every fall when the pumpkins are ripe in the garden, we always make this recipe for pumpkin loaf. It is super moist and delicious! This recipe makes two loafs. It freezes great, so you can make multiple batches and just freeze them!

I made these last night...and as you can see from the picture, they don't take long to disappear! The loaf on the left was attacked by my 3 year old...she loves it!

Here's the recipe, let me know what you think!

2 cups pumpkin (cooked and mashed...fresh or from a can)
3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2/3 cup water
4 eggs
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour bottoms only of 2 loaf pans. Beat together first 5 ingredients, beat 1 min at medium speed. Add remaining ingredients, blend at low speed until
moistened. Beat 1 min at medium speed. Pour into pans, bake for 60 to 75 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the top comes out clean. Cool 5 mins in pans before removing. Cool

For the girls...

Just listed on Etsy, and will be live on Hyenacart tomorrow at 6pm. These will be the only longies I will make from this wool for now, since I do not have enough to make another pair...I do have enough to make a soaker or perhaps a skirty though! (If someone really wants these in another size however, I can order more of this colorway if you can wait a little bit).

These were so fun to make...they would be perfect for the little princess in your life :)

Sock Monkey Longies

I finally am finished my exams! For those who don't know, I am working towards my bachelor of education. So now that I don't have anything to study, I can just relax! I hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful Christmas season!!

Even though tomorrow is the first official day of winter...we are getting hit hard here with a Nor'Easter Snow Storm. I do love the snow...especially when I don't have to leave the house.

So since we are stuck in the house, I had my husband cut out a nativity scene I have been wanting to make. I painted it up...and here is how it turned out:

I still need to stain the edges, sand them a little...and then I will add some fabric and rafia on their heads as...not sure what they are called...but veils maybe?? Hopefully I will be able to find some craft hay to glue on the manger also. for the longies........

Who doesn't love a sock monkey?? They are everywhere lately! Here is my version of a sock longies form!

They are a size large and are currently listed in my Etsy, and will be going live tomorrow on my Hyenacart.
