Time to think.

Thank you for all of the comments. hehe. I really do love my oven. Yes, I am a geek, and proud of it! LOL! The kids and I made Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookies yesterday, after school. If you love chocolate, try these. Wow! They are chocolatey! No, they are not good for you, but oh well, sorry! I got the recipe off of Major Knitter's knit blog. Then, we doubled it, it made 4 dozen big cookies!

See, larjmarj, I make a mess baking, too. This doesn't even show the chocolate dough that flew all over while mixing, or the dirty dishes everywhere.

Then, the dog, who walks around with her nose in the air sniffing if there is any chocolate around, stole a cookie! We had to put them on the top of the microwave, because she kept trying to snatch cookies off of the table! She has never tried to snatch other food. I guess she doesn't care that dogs aren't supposed to have chocolate.



I also did some kool aid dyeing. We have a different microwave than the one we had when I used to do a lot of dyeing, and it is much quicker and I made a boo-boo, and felted my yarn a little! SP said "Wow, how'd you make dreads with your yarn?" He was impressed, but I was feeling pretty dumb. I boiled my yarn! I pulled it all apart and saved it. It is a little fuzzy, but I don't care. It's my yarn, and I am knitting a green hat for the February Green Hat Knit-a-long at Get Stitchy!


Since I did some Kool-Aid Dyeing, I need to post the pics over at Get Stitchy for the January Kool-Aid Dye-a-long. I have become such a joiner!

Well, I am going to knit one more square and find out where to send them. Then, I have to finish the baby genius burp cloths, because I think the baby shower will be in February. I have to decide what UFO I'm going to work on in February, too. I will have those UFOs all gone by the end of 2007, or maybe even before. Finish, fix, or frog!

Once again, no title has come to me. Hmm. Time to think.

Knit On! No Tink!

No, no! Do not tempt me with cookies.

The cookies look fabulous. Luckily I have no desire (or the temptation of a new stove) to step into the kitchen to make anything. Maybe I can talk my husband into making some.

Your green yarn came out very pretty. I'm trying not to look at the cookies since I just rejoined Weight Watchers yesterday!

Early on in my re-joining the knitting world, i tried to dye some cotton yarn that color. It didn't stay in the yarn, i was so sad. :(

LOVE that color!!

Chocolate is high in magnesium and magnesium is good for you... ;) Enjoy the new stove!

Glad you are feeling better. Thank you so much for knitting for Aarons Afghan. I know it will be greatly appreciated.

It's okay that your yarn felted a little. It will add an interesting texture to the hat.
