Between you and me, I’m happy to have a husband who jumps in to do laundry and can be counted on to do an emergency run to the grocery store when needed. So far be it from me to complain about him bringing the wrong thing an alternative item back from the grocery store. It just doesn’t seem right to focus on that little snafu. But I’ll be darned if I know what in the heck I’m going to do with all of that garlic. (The list said “large jar of minced garlic”. Please note the “large jar” size I was referring to is the empty one, on the right. That’s “large” compared to the one that is half that size and also available at the store. Never in my life have I seen or purchased the honking big ridiculously oversized 32 oz. jar that came home in the bag on this shopping trip. Seriously?) I made our favorite Garlic Chicken Pizza the other night. That used up a whopping 4 tsp. of garlic. Anyone have any other good garlic-y recipes?? Because I have a bit to use up.
The Socks for the Cure Kits from Skacel went up tonight. I love the blue color of the Trekking yarn. To re-cap, these kits come in a cute little zippered pouch with Trekking yarn (dyed especially for this kit in the Ovarian Cancer Research color), and a special sock pattern, along with beads for the socks. Skacel is donating 100% of their proceeds from this kit to the Marsha Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research, and The Loopy Ewe is donating 100% of our proceeds from this kit as well. You can’t get any better than that! We can get more if we run out, so don’t worry about it. We bought a lot for this first go-round, but if we run out, just email us and we can make sure that you get notification when they go back in stock again.
Also up tonight: String Theory Hand Dyed Yarn’s Caper Sock (!), a brand new sportweight yarn from Enchanted Knoll Farm, more Sweet Georgia’s Cashsilk Lace, two new Monica Knits patterns, and the new Messenger and Hip Holster bags from Namaste (in Peacock. The black is enroute and will arrive later this week). Come check it all out!
