I knitted some mittens. I have never knitted mittens before and really enjoyed it. These are knitted flat (the pattern source is on my ravelry page) and I'm not sure how I feel about that. I'm going to try another pair in the round, but maybe with the magic loop method. I get a little panicky with DPNs because I have to start and stop so much and I'm freaked everything will fall off my needles when I have to put it down.
I am on a "only using yarn from my stash" kick right now which is great—perfect for hats, mittens, baby booties, and small items. It also means I sometimes don't know or remember what I am knitting with, hence the lack of yarn info on my ravelry page.
Unrelated and about waffles:
I was getting a pedicure with Grammie yesterday morning and while she was talking about Thanksgiving menu ideas I was trying not to be distracted by the large flat screen behind her head that was showing two women putting an alarming amount of unexpected food items into waffle irons. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. It was muted of course, and because I was listening to Grammie (I was!) I don't really know what was going on, but I'd like to think I now know enough to try some waffle related disasters here at home. I feel so unadventurous using my waffle iron for normal breakfast waffles after seeing its possibly misguided potential.
I have one non-veggie eater in the house and while she will try anything, actually consuming veggies is pretty hard for her. (Very sensitive gag reflex.) We have our go-to staples, which I am grateful for, but I'm always looking for new ways to prepare veggies. The zucchini fritters have worked in the past, but the oiliness isn't popular, so I am now looking to try something like these zucchini Parmesan waffles. And the latke waffles at Smitten Kitchen look very good. Maybe I can try it with sweet potatos?. Or corn. I found a review of this book, which I want to check out, Will it Waffle? There's a cooking fail that is specific to using a waffle iron that I find pretty horrendous (I usually have to leave the room and Pete gets to deal with the fallout) but if any of these work out, I think there's fun to be had.
