Half pizza and half glove

I made calzones tonight...super yummy! I got the idea off of this website:

However, I use my own pizza crust recipe instead of store bought dough. Experiment with what you would like in your calzone....tonight was broccoli, cheese, onions.

I also make my own marinara sauce because I almost always have canned tomato sauce or diced tomatoes. Add Italian seasoning, salt, sugar, and most importantly garlic powder (I say that because I LOVE garlic :)) I don't have measurements for these since it depends on how much sauce I make. You will need more Italian seasoning and garlic powder than salt and sugar. If you don't have Italian seasoning use a mix of oregano, basil, rosemary, etc.

I also made fingerless gloves....seems slightly out of season, but winter will be here before you know it! I used the same 2 1/2" loom and made 4 strips of 15 stitches each. Single crochet the 4 strips side by side (you will have a rectangle). When you are crocheting the last seam (to join both sides) single crochet 5 stitches, then tie off. Start again on the next stitch down(6th stitch) and single crochet to the end. By stopping in the midst of your single crochets, you leave space for your thumb to fit through :)
