I wanted to show you how this is worked. It is knit in all one piece with very little finishing, only sewing the sleeve. That is my favorite things about this. When you are finished knitting, you are practically ready to wear it. The right front, front bands and wrist bands are what is left for me to knit. Which doesn't sound like a lot, but on size 3 needles, it is!
Libby chose our cookie of the week. Vanilla Blondies. Someone (Ms. Anonymous) left a comment on my last cookie of the week, asking if I used butter or shortening. If the recipe calls for butter or margarine, I always use butter. I tried this recipe with a non-hydrogenated shortening by Earth Balance, purchased from whole foods. They were delicious. Thanks Ms. Anonymous for giving me the idea!
1/2 cup butter or shortening
1/2 bag of vanilla chips
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups bread flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup vanilla baking chips
Lightly grease 13*9 baking pan. In a small saucepan, combine butter and 1/2 bag of vanilla chips, melt over med heat, stirring constantly, remove from heat, and cool slightly. Transfer to mixing bowl, stir in sugars and vanilla, add eggs, one at a time, add flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in chips. Spread evenly in pan. bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
It may be a little quiet over here. You know what I will be doing!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
