Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts



Among the rabbit holes that blogging has led me to fall into (as if I didn’t already have more recipes than I’ll ever be able to try – sound familiar?), one of the latest is “A Veggie Venture”, which featured a Summer Squash Casserole that I just had to try! The weather cooperated by cooling off enough to run the oven on Wednesday, and it was simply yummy! We both loved it – highly recommended. My only modifications were to use 50/50 butter and olive oil, reduced fat sour cream, and 2% sharp cheddar cheese. The sauce should be great with lots of other veggies as well. Sorry not to photograph it sooner, but we just couldn’t wait.

I think the cooler weather we’ve had has helped crank Amber up – she’s been a busy girl!

The latest Patternworks catalog came, and as I was paging through, I spotted a design I did for Brown Sheep, Lucina Cardigan with the Cotton Fleece on page 14 (no designer credit – sniff!). It’s almost like having one of the kids phoning home πŸ˜‰

There have been lots of critters around, including this walking stick that was hanging out on the shop door the other day.

  1. The casserole looks like a winner! Amber looks to be quite a vicious girl. Um, yeah. And a walking stick is so cool. I haven’t seen one in a few years. Your sweater design is pretty, but I disagree with the seasons spanning part. Unless of course the seasons are late spring, summer and very early fall;0)) I do like the design though. Are you thinking of selling any through Ravelry? Not being a designer (or much of a knitter) I don’t know how that works.

  2. cute sweater!!!
    too bad about the no credit though.

  3. Thanks – I must add that the “no designer credit” remark only applies to the catalog – there is a proper byline on the Brown Sheep pattern!

  4. So glad you loved the casserole — it’s a winner for sure!
