Rist-Canyon-Shawl-by-Kathy-MerrickOurĀ Loopy Ewe Solid Series line has been used in another published pattern and we wanted to give you a peek! This crocheted scarf looks like it would be fun to do in a lot of different colors. The designer, Kathy Merrick, used Iron, Butterscotch, Dove, Pesto, Mocha, Silver, Sage and Slate Blue for this one. This pattern appears in Interweave’s Crochet Winter 2012/2013, available online today and on newsstands December 18th. (Photo by Harper Point Photography, used with permission.) Wouldn’t this be fun in shades of one color (like blue), going from lighter to darker? Like Whisper Blue, Ice, Cornflower, Cerulean, Royal Blue, Slate Blue, Indigo, and Navy? Or browns? Or greens? How about a quick Christmas scarf with Strawberry, Cardinal, Spring Green, Kelly Green, Evergreen, Surf, Caribbean and Turquoise? (Or just pick a Loopy Cake set or two – those are fun colors that all go well together!) I like the multi-color idea for a scarf. It goes with everything that way.

Today’s recipeĀ is a long-time family favorite and I hope you and your family and friends enjoy this one as much as we do.

Congo-BarsCongo Bars

Mix together:

1 cup butter (room temperature)
2 cups flour
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Mix well and press into greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle 1/2 bag of chocolate chips on top and lightly press into batter. You can also add a half-bag of butterscotch chips as well, but we like the chocolate chips in ours.

Beat 2 egg whites until stiff and then add 1 cup brown sugar. Beat until combined. Spread over chocolate chips.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Let cool and cut into bars.

Hasn’t it been nice to have one full week post-Thanksgiving before the month of December hits? Have you decorated for the holidays yet? (Or do you do that?) I think that’s on my list for the weekend.
