A a great virtual recipe party is about to begin at Overwhelmed With Joy. The second annual recipe exchange Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style starts this Friday.
Our hostess reports that last year’s party linked 81 bloggers together and resulted in more than 200 yummy recipes. That is quite a recipe haul.
Bats in My Kitchen
Much as I’d like to figure out how to conjure up a magical spell for washing dishes, I have to actually do it myself. I knitted two black cotton dishcloths with a simple bat design while watching Stephen King’s Storm of the Century on Sunday.
I hope you can see the bat design in the photo. This is pretty much the extent of my knitting skills—little cloths and some scarves using a simple cable stitch are about as far as I can go.
You can find the free knitting pattern here. The designer used yarn in the color Grape which is pretty neat, too.
Sam the Shoplifting Seagull
My sister sent this link to me yesterday and I laughed with pure delight over Sam the Seagull’s outrageous shoplifting behavior. At least he shares his ill-gotten booty with his friends.
