Lats summer I acquired a 2nd job which had be working 70-80 hours a week.Not much time left for my ramblings…But i lost the 2nd job am starting to cook again and realized I missed my adoring public ( all 3 of them)…I plan on much food and general goodness to come soon.
How could I allow 3, nearly 4 months slip by? I have knitted a ton and been busy taking pics etc. I vow to get caught up over the next week or so and stay on top of it.
I recently scored free tix to a WWE events. For those not in the know that is a wrestling thing. The boys were hyped about it. So I packed up the boys and a close friend of theirs and headed to EXTREME RULES…Now I am not totally clueless about wrestling. I have dated at least one person in my past who would watch Monday night raw weekly among other wrestling events.
It was a madhouse at the Allstate Arena and I was able to take a slew of pics. So I put together a little slide show .
I have made a lot of hand covering type items. I have more on the needles…I made a fair amount for others and now am making them for myself…..time to dance around singing “Sister’s doing it for themselves”….
pair one for a swap:
pair 2: for a sister for x-mas:
pair 3: for Mom for x-mas convertible mittens
pair 4: for step dad x-mas
pair 5: for the youngest spawn
pair 6: a test knit of a new construction of a top down keeping for me
I have another pair of cabled ones in red tones near completion and plans on a few more pairs..all for me

I know we haven’t been tight like we used to and no…you didn’t do anything to push me away. I had to work through some issue and kind of got lost. But baby I swear this time I’ll be better..really…
I”m back it’s a new year and I have been a baaaaddd blogger. i really struggled with some serious depression this past fall and holiday time. Seems grief has a way of sneaking up on you. One pro to all that lethargic couch sitting was I knitted like a freak. I made so much shit between sept and dec it blows my mind. I knitted a gift for nearly every close friend and family member. Obviously i want to share but figure I would break it up into types of knitting so Happy Fucking new Year and lets get the last year of our Mayan calender ROCKIN!!!

I have been a very bad blogger, I have knitted countless items, canned enough for a starving village and even designed new dishes..but do I share…bad bad me. I will get back to it. Been a strange year.
I did want to shout out to my peeps a Happy Holiday season. I hope that everyone is warm, safe and content this weekend. Most of you know what a softie I am on the inside willing to help others blah blah etc…I feel I have drifted from my initial bend towards volunteering the last 5 years and am making an effort to be thankful for what i do have by giving what I can back. Money not really but I’ve begun donating blood, knitting for charity and will be spending my Turkey time cooking for the local community center that provides over 1200 meals to seniors and those with out tomorrow.
Of course my punk kids will not let a food focused holiday slip past with out getting their dues so Saturday I will be cooking my growing citizens.
Oh fall is coming and I have fall food projects that I’m hoping to do. My tomatillo plant looks like it may give up a good crop. It keeps growing bigger and bigger with boku flowers, I realized later in the year that you are supposed to plat 2 together and I was sad. But more research and forums suggested if a bee that my plant frequents, has another tomatillo on it’s route I may be in business. Low and behold yesterday I checked and I see little fetal tomatillo husks. So I expect a lot in the next month which means canned salsa…Tomatoes are coming in quick as well, so if you like either drop me a note nd Ill be happy to share.
A close friend has a smoker and we are planning on making sausage this fall and building a hanging/drying cage in his basement. mmmmm I’m so geeked to make sausage been so long, we may build a cold smoker ans well. I used to make cold smoke seafood sausage way back in my culinary youngness.
I am looking for some deer hunters who may want to donate meat and get sausage back…..
I wonder if anyone else has any food fun they want to try this fall/winter. cheese or mushrooms anyone?
