even though I am so grumpy I could scream...

I need to tell you about a couple of cool things, so I'll put my ornery self aside for a minute.

Please consider going to to vote for this "refreshing" idea. Play for Trey is a great cause. I little guy from my local area was killed by a drunk driver last fall - and his family would like to build a baseball field in his honor. It's pretty cool. This family has not stopped amazing me with their strength and faith. It takes just a second - please go vote.

Next up is a little contest - that while I admit, I don't want anyone else to sign up for - I can get another entry by blogging about it. *wink wink* One of my long time favorite dyers, Yarntini is giving away some amazing MCN Aran in the most gorgeous merlot colorway and a Just Enough Ruffles scarf pattern to go with. It will look just like the gorgeous one she made - which you can see here, on the contest post. Doesn't it look squishable? What knitter can resist anything with "squish" in it? I know I totally don't deserve to win because Jessie has been too good to me like forever - but this yarn, it's like making my mouth water - so I can't help myself. And you won't be able to either. Promise.

Then yum-o - I made some Chocolate Cookie Dough Balls from Joy the Baker today - yup, just the dough, in balls. From an eggless recipe expressly for eating the dough safely. Sheesh, the dough is awesome so far - once I dip them in chocolate, I may have to lock the freezer. (just go to the link - you will see heaven on a fork...really, go look.)

And because I should be knitting - I did make myself a pair of Bella's mittens for myself. I love them - so cozy warm.


Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend!

eBut I want to hear about why you're ornery. Was it because no one wanted to help you take down the long-dead Christmas tree? No? Well, that's why I'M ornery. Love the mittens. And thanks for the dough ball recipe. My butt started yelling at me to stop eating about a week ago.
