FO and Yarn Review: K1C2 Wick

Thu, 19 Nov 2009 13:50:24 -0800

I just posted this on the Vegan Sock Knitalong blog: I recently completed two pairs of socks using Knit One Crochet Two's Wick, a worsted weight yarn made of 53% soy and 47% polypropylene, which supposedly creates a fabric that wicks, pulling the moisture away from your body as you sweat. I picked up a couple of balls a few...



FO: Bamboozle Bed Socks

Thu, 22 Oct 2009 14:24:32 -0700

I recently completed two pairs of bed socks with yarn generously donated by my favorite sock yarn company, Crystal Palace Yarns! I reviewed them on the Vegan Sock Knitalong blog here. Here's a copy of the review: Crystal Palace Yarns generously donated a few skeins of Bamboozle yarn for me to test earlier this year. I'm slightly embarassed that it...



A Good Sunday

Tue, 29 Sep 2009 22:03:11 -0700

Berry Good Times

Wed, 23 Sep 2009 22:19:36 -0700

I got a bit of a late start on the berrying compared to last year but I've now been blueberry picking twice and blackberry picking once in the neighborhood. Through the circle of moms I nanny for, I found out about this wonderful little berry farm up near Brush Prairie, WA, and when I went picking on Thursday, organic blueberries...



Pesto Pasta

Tue, 01 Sep 2009 22:06:45 -0700

Simple, yet delicious. Poor Man's Pesto from Vegan Mediterranean Kitchen, along with cherry tomatoes, little red potatoes, kalamata olives, cauliflower, and pesto made with basil from my garden. Make it with whole wheat pasta for a really healthy meal. We had this pasta already, so I just used it. This pesto recipe is my favorite and is easily made with...



Hello exercise!

Wed, 26 Aug 2009 14:01:19 -0700

Those who know me well will be shocked to hear that I've started jogging. Moving to Portland has resulted in a different amount of exercise and food, and my waistline has increased while my stamina has decreased. Yoga is great but I felt I needed to start doing some aerobic exercise to help with the waistline and stamina issues. So...



From the garden: pasta with kale

Sun, 23 Aug 2009 21:59:41 -0700

This evening I picked a huge bunch of kale. It's very tender and sweet, and there wasn't a single bug on it! I sauteed 2 sliced leeks in olive oil until semi-soft, then added the chopped kale. I seasoned with some veggie boullion, red chili flakes, chopped garlic, and black pepper. While it was cooking, I boiled some pasta. Here...



Inspiring Summer: veggie gardens

Sat, 22 Aug 2009 00:47:29 -0700

The most important thing I did this summer outside the house was to create vegetable gardens. I made two beds in the backyard and one in the side yard. The fact that this area used to be riverbeds makes prepping very difficult. There were many many stones to remove, and the earth is mostly sand, requiring a lot of compost....



Inspiring Summer: in the kitchen

Thu, 20 Aug 2009 20:46:46 -0700

This summer, my husband and I have had several sets of house guests. This has been great for us because each time we have visitors, we "finish" the house a little more, get another piece of furniture that we need, work on the garden, and generally make our home that much homier. The next few posts will feature projects that...
