Crochet, soup, crochet...

I previously posted how excited I was that I found more yarn by taking apart a previous project (a shrug). Sadly, I have run out :(....again. Here's how far I got. I am probably 3/4 of the way done if not more and I'm really excited about it since this will be my 3rd wearable project that I have been working on. I am hoping that they get the yarn in soon, and I'm crossing my fingers that they still make it and carry it. PS--not my foot, lol.

I also made some soup, it was SOUPER easy (hahaha). You pretty much used whatever veggies you have around in your place, cut them up, throw them in a pot, boil 20-30 minutes and dinner is served! Here's my recipe:

6 boullion cubes (vegetable or beef)
7 c. water
1/4 c. shredded carrots
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
1 small can tomato sauce
pinch fresh rosemary
3/4 c. pasta, uncooked
1 c. cut up spinach
3 potatoes cubes
4 T. dried parsley

Like I said before, throw everything in the pot except the pasta, which you want to add about 15 minutes before it's done so it doesn't get soggy. You can use any type of pasta, elbow macaroni, alphabet noodles, you can even break up spaghetti and use that. It's a very forgiving recipe. You don't have to use spinach, you can add cut up tomatoes, celery, etc.

I recently restarted working on a blanket that I started about 5 years ago. I started it freshman year, but a year or so after that I set it next to a heater in a plastic bag. Naturally, the bag melted to it, yellowing the yarn. I stopped working on it at that point in time since I didn't have the heart to take out the 1-2 feet out that had partially turned yellow since I had put so much work into it. So I took it home and my mom and my boyfriend were nice enough to do it for me after I had left the room (I was really that disappointed). But I recovered and now am working on it again. It is not from a pattern, it's just a shell stitch, so I am just going to continue on it until A) I get sick of it or B) I decide it's long enough. I originally made it with the intention that it would be big enough to completely fit under it. As of right now it is 55" x 67" so I could fit under it now, but I'm still going.

I am also really excited about Halloween that is coming up since it is my favorite holiday. I will focus my efforts on Halloween projects for the month, especially since I have almost no decorations for the holiday, surprisingly enough. Well, signing out....happy crafting!
