many things make a post

actual knitting content, more or less

The Arse Kicking Sweater is too unwieldy to travel with so I worked on my secret project during my quickie trip last week. This is all that remains.


I'll show you the whole thing once it has gone to its intended. You are breathless with anticipation, I know.

My latest quickie project is a Mason Dixon chevron handtowel for our almost finished downstairs bath. I'd show you my progress but due to the pattern being wrong and my inability to read the errata correctly, I ripped the whole thing out and will start again. *lesigh*

Also in knitterly news - I GOT MY LOOPY EWE SWAP BOX! Woot!


It was waiting for me when I got back from the funeral. Which helped.


Included were some great socks, a sock yarn that I'd almost purchased in Pgh, Burt's Bees Swag and chocolate. There was another bag of Lindt truffles that has already been dealt with. Thanks so, so much to FidoKnits!

Finally, my latest obsession:


More on this later -- but I'm going to liberate some laceweight a la Amy Singer.

And a CSA update: No pixs, sadly, but greens season seems to be winding down. Last week, there were beets, which I roasted, and lots of zucchini, which I haven't done much with yet but am thinking about fritters. Any great fritter recipes out there?


I thought we were done with greens. The dude almost put our Swiss chard in the trade box, but it was *filled* with Swiss chard! For the zucchini, I was going to try these
but you can tell me how they are first.

Well, I was going to point you toward zucchini cakes at Pioneer Woman, but Anna beat me to it. I haven't made them yet, either.

Zucchini pancakes, although the gluten issue would be a problem without substitutions.

3 cups grated zucchini (don't bother to peel)
1 chopped onion
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup grated cheese

Mix the batter and cook in a well-oiled pan (I use margarine). We serve with Swedish lingonberry jam, but any jam would do.
