My list!!

1. Finish Central Park hoodie (only the hood and buttonband left Shocked)

2. Finish my first pair of socks (im on the first top down and i just started the heel shaping)

3. Candy from knitty in alpaca

4. Knucks for my brother in law (intarsia skulls if im brave enough...)

5. 5$ in Paris, but longsleeved and completely changed with lots of fair isle and tummy ribbing and much complicatedness!

 The list will expand after i inventory my stash after these projects. Im thinking of making a Tubey with some leftovers since it looks nice striped, and i have one hideous funfur scar from an ex that i would like to retire, so i will be making myself a scarf also.

  Oh, and no, im not greedy, and yes, all of these are for me except one.  I have never knitted myself anything before (except the scarf that was frogged and turned into a baby blanket- but that doesnt count) and i am happily giving this years knitting to someone who will appreciate it (yay-me!) After last year i knit my sister a gorgeous mohair sweater and never got a peep of gratitude, let alone if it even fit well, or was even worn. sigh... but now im just being sad. Cry

well, mine wasnt done in time for vacation  Cry, but while i was there i seamed everything together and weaved in all ends so when i am done the hood (2 inches so far) and ribbing, i am DONE! whoo! i'm done with the annoying part! I even picked up some nice buttons made of some weird nut (i forget... it started with a C Huh) Who knew they would have a knitting store in Nantucket!?  Grin

 Shocked Wow! Shocked  I just found my next sweater! (actually after a cardigan, 5$ in Paris, and a pair of Christmas gloves... haha, seeing as i need to buy the yarn) This is such an amazing pattern and it looks beautiful on everyone! I think i would like to knit it in the round... hmm... maybe in red...

whoo! i have the arms and fronts and back done, now for the hood- 3 days till vacation, will i make it?  I hate seaming, but must power through it!

midwifemamma- i read through all of the pages and one of the people did do it in one piece, and it looked great!  Im not sure which page it was on though, sorry.

Cranberry- this definatley has been said to be knit small, but i just looked at the finished products on people and picked the person with a body type as close to mine and you can tell which size they made (if they dont say) by the space between the front cables.  Im a 36" bust and im making the 36", but i want it really fitted (i also lengthend mine by 2") and i am using lion brand woolease which seems to expand, haha.  I guess it depends on your yarn characteristics and how tight you want it?

And now for *another* all day knitathon! whoooo! (i took two days off to make a kitty condo for my terror of a kitten while we are gone)

My zucchini lentil dish:

1 sweet onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups mushrooms, chopped (i like baby bella)
2 tbs olive oil

2 cups dried lentils
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 large zucchini, sliced into quarters then sliced 1/4 inch thick
4 cups water

1 tsp cumin
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste

sautee garlic , onions and mushrooms in olive oil till fragrant and translucent (not the mushrooms, haha).  Add everything else except spices, and simmer till tender with lid tilted (aproximatley 30+ minutes) add spices and simmer 5 minutes more.

*Goes VERY well with pork (i made a tenderloin), after cutting the tenderloin, i dumped all the juices on the cutting board into the lentil dish for added flavor.

(my husband gave it rave reviews!!! Grin)

i grate it (one huge one) and make spaghetti sauce from scratch. all the nutrients, none of the zuchini taste.  I cant post a recipe, because i just throw in whatever veggies are in the fridge and a can of puree'd beans to thicken it (and spice of course) yum!  This also freezes well in ziplocs.
