Beautiful socks gaudiknight! I tried to start some socks the other day but couldn't get past the first step...  Tongue I think I need to do some more easy knits first!

Here's a picture of all the ornaments I sent out - I thought they looked cool together!

Class: Apparition
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: 3 veggie autumn fritters
Brief Description: My three related ingredients are the main parts of this recipe - kohlrabi, potato, and carrots, all popular fall veggies that are plentiful at the farm right now.

1 small kohlrabi, grated
2 medium potatoes, grated
2 medium carrots, grated
the ratio of kohlrabi to potatoes to carrots should be about 3-2-1
2-3 scallions, finely chopped
3 eggs, beaten
3 tbsp flour
salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste
vegetable oil for frying

Squeeze as much liquid as you can out of the grated veggies (with a strainer or in your hands) and mix all the ingredients except the oil in a large bowl. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium-high. Shape patties as flat as you can and fry them for 3-4 minutes on each side (the flatter they are, the faster they'll cook). The sides should be nice and crispy! This recipe makes around 16 fritters. They are great served with honey mustard dressing or bbq dipping sauce!

Challenge: Bertie Bott's Bean - Pizza
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Origami star strings
Brief Description: I made these for the sweat shop ornament swap, and realized that their colors were the colors of my favorite pizza! White for the crust, red for the sauce, blue for bleu cheese, and green for fresh arugula. Yum!

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Mashup bookmark
Brief Description: For the bookmark swap, I combined blupaisan's themes to make a chimera bookmark! She likes James Herriot and Nancy Drew novels, so I illustrated Nancy investigating one of the stories from All Creatures Great and Small.

Class: Defense Against the Dark Arts
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Terry Pratchett bookmark
Brief Description: Sometimes the darkness can help us see more clearly! This quote is from the novel Thud, which was one of my partner's favorites in the bookmark swap. It says "To see the light is to be blinded. Do you not know that in darkness the eyes open wider?"

Class: Divination
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Rix mild salsa
Brief Description: When I looked into the future, I saw a long winter coming. I know I will miss all the fresh produce that I've been enjoying all summer! With that in mind, I decided to preserve some of the last tomato harvest in this tasty salsa that I can enjoy all winter.

Recipe I got from a work friend:

15-20 ripe tomatoes (7 lbs) peeled, seeded, and coarsely chopped
8 tomatillos, roughly chopped
2 red peppers, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
5 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
2 poblano peppers, seeded and chopped
2 onions, roughly chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Bring the tomatoes to a boil in a large stock pot, then simmer, uncovered, for 40-50 minutes until it has thickened to the right salsa consistency. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil again for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and ladle into prepared canning jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Process the jars in a boiling water bath for 35 minutes, then remove the jars and let them sit for 24 hours before testing the seal and storing them. Makes about 8 pint jars.

Class: Muggle Studies
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Corn relish
Project Page Link: http://www.freshpreserving.com/recipes/corn-relish-recipe
Brief Description: I celebrated the fall harvest this year by preserving the last of the corn in this delicious relish. Seriously, it's one of my favorite things I've canned this year and everyone should try it!

Class: Potions
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Spiced apple sauce
Project Page Link: http://www.freshpreserving.com/recipes/applesauce
Brief Description: This recipe requires two blasts of heat - one in cooking the apple mixture, and another to process the cans so they are safe to store. To make spiced applesauce, follow the recipe in the link and add 2 tbsp ground cinnamon, 1 tbsp ground nutmeg, and 1 tbsp ground ginger to the apple mixture before you blend it. I also put in half a lemon's worth of grated zest. Very tasty!

Another wayward student checking in! I've been very busy at the farm this fall (herbology classes paying off!), but things have slowed down and I have a bunch of projects to post from the past couple months. I missed you folks, and it was great clicking through the thread to see what y'all have been up to.

Here's my last ornament, from Ratfinkz. The beads pick up colors in a really cool way, I bet it will look great with the tree lights. Thanks again!

Let's see, as far as supplies go, I'm looking for felting needles, paints and brushes, sketch paper, sock weight yarn, text/book pages in non-english languages, and flannel in nice colors/patterns to make Days for Girls kits.

I'm looking through my craft room for some fresh things for this round. Is anyone interested in short zippers? I have a bunch!
