Last week it was a working weekend at Stitches, and this weekend it’s pure fun! WH and I came out to Colorado for a long weekend of fresh mountain air. (And some eating out, and some movies, and some knitting, and some reading and some hanging out. Not necessarily in that order.) The Elves are keeping things running at Loopy Central and I’ll be back there on Monday!
I know you’ve been waiting to find out a couple of things. First of all, which Dream in Color Baby projects won the Reader’s Choice Award and the “glad you participated in the challenge and your number was picked by the random generator” award for out latest knitting challenge? The Reader’s Choice award goes to Woodland Baby - a beautiful shawl knit up out of Happy Forest by Jade in Australia. The second award goes to Timmie for her wonderful scarf done up in Wisterious. Both have won $25 gift certificates to The Loopy Ewe.
Today’s Recipe – Chicken and Broccoli Casserole
6-8 chicken breasts
2 boxes of frozen broccoli, chopped
1 pkg. long-grain wild rice
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. curry powder
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Cook the chicken and cut into small pieces. Cook broccoli and rice, and then mix them together. Layer the chicken and broccoli/rice mixture in a buttered 9 x 13 pan. Mix the soup, mayo, lemon juice and curry powder together and pour over the top. Top with grated cheese. Cook for 30 minutes at 375 degrees. Serves 6-8.
The other thing you’re waiting to hear, are the winning color combinations for our Team Spirit line. They all arrived this week and they look great! These will probably go up Thanksgiving week, since The Loopy Photo Color Corrector (aka – my hubby) is here in Colorado this weekend instead of spending his Saturday in the Loopy Photo Studio, as usual. I thought I could at least fill you in on the colors that will be up. We (ok, Elf Susan) spent a long time going through your 500 comments to pick out the top most-requested color combinations. We’re open to adding more eventually. We’ll let you know when you can vote again! We had these dyed up in Shepherd Sport, since we know you will be using them for socks, as well as hats, scarves, gloves, mitts, and … whatever else you come up with. We’ll look forward to seeing photos of your finished products.
