What about those candy melts? They make a dark chocolate version, I think. Those melt up wonderfully... And, I may have to make a bunch of these for Christmas gifts!

Thanks for the idea!

That sounds DELICIOUS!  How giving of you to bring in your pumpkin delight into work.

It was really tasty! I don't usually get my seasoning combos right, so both of these were pleasant surprises! And, when I cook, I always make too much, so bringing it in to work to share at lunch helps me A) get feedback on the taste B) not have to eat the same thing for a week and C) incentive to cook more Wink

This sounds like a great idea, I think I'll have to try it. 

One question, was there a reason you left out the potatoes, or was it just personal preference?
Oh, do try it! It's fun to make! I left out the potatoes only because I thought that the pumpkin would substitute for it. I added extra veggies instead (because I just don't eat enough!). If I had a bigger pumpkin, I would probably top it off with potatoes, just like I had planned to top off the turkey version with stuffing (but ran out of room again Wink ).

No problem! I actually went through a couple of tutes before I decided that I understood that one the best. I was stuck on one bit, but then after I studied the pictures a bit better, I got it. They aren't the neatest looking balls of yarn on the block, but they'll do Wink

I made a turkey dinner version yesterday! I cooked up some ground turkey (with a dash of Bell's Seasoning), then mixed up a packet of turkey gravy. I divided it between 2 smaller pumpkins (they were pretty much out of pumpkins at the farm stand). Then, I added a layer of corn and a bit of butter, followed by a layer of frozen cranberries topped with brown sugar. I had intended to top it off with some stuffing (Stove Top turkey flavor), but ran out of room, so I just made that up separately.

Except for the texture of the turkey (I must have overcooked it before I put it in), it was delicious!! I brought a pumpkin in to work to share... and it got thumbs up (unless they were just being kind...). But I liked it, so that's what's important!  Grin

I think you mean the "Star Dishcloth", which is around #37 on the list. This is the link: http://hometown.aol.com/JSchlossma/stardc.html  Let me know if it doesn't work for you and I'll see if I still have it saved.

the link says that they've permanently shut down hometown Sad

Bummer! Well, special offer for any folks in this swap... I'll e-mail it to you if send me a PM Wink

And, myklia, that yarn is chock full of rainbow-y goodness!

I have a craft day coming up on Saturday (I think) and I always like to have something to do when the evening gets long, but I'm not quite ready to head home. Ball winding will be just the ticket!

That panda set is great! I love how the image of the panda is lower on the top so it won't get all distorted. And, the zombie ones are a riot!

I am officially 1/10 done with winding... I just made my first 3 balls of yarn! Well, I actually made 4, but then I wanted to test out the center pull method I used (http://birdsnestknits.typepad.com/birds_nest_knits/2006/02/how_to_wind_a_c.html) and I pulled the whole ball out because it was so fun Wink

They look a little wonky, but I think they'll work... I'm not pulling on them to test them out Grin

I should have them all wound by the end of the week. I pulled a bunch of yarn from a stash that is mostly donated yarns (I taught some 7th graders how to crochet a couple of years ago, and a couple of folks gave  us a bunch of yarn... which is now in my living room because I was moving my classroom and took it home for safe-keeping... and I need to bring it back!).

I'll post a teaser pic of the yarn I've wound once it's all done...
