We have tallied the votes for Project Three from Camp Loopy, and I’d like to congratulate Sara in Wisconsin for winning the Reader’s Choice award! Sara knit the Sugar Maple sweater using The Loopy Ewe Solid Series yarn in Charcoal, Iron, Smoke and Dove. I love the color-blocked look of it. Just gorgeous. Sara wins a $35 credit to The Loopy Ewe for being the Reader’s Choice. Thanks to everyone who voted! We also drew two additional names from all of the Project Three entries, and they each win a $25 credit to The Loopy Ewe. Congratulations to Carol from MD and Marilyn from IA!
Since we’re officially wrapping up Camp today, I wanted to share one more S’more recipe. Knitting Daughter made a batch of these this week for our Loopy Elf Night (the Elves get together one night a month for dinner, movies and knitting) and everyone declared the bars “awesome”. And they’re no bake – so super easy. Try them! (recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything blog, via Pinterest.)
1/2 cup butter (melted)
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/4 cups peanut butter
8-12 oz. mashmallow fluff
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2-3 cups mini peanut butter cups, coarsely chopped
1. Mix butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and peanut butter together until well mixed. Press firmly into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
2. Spread a layer of marshmallow fluff over the top of the graham cracker crust.
3. Melt the chocolate chips and pour them over the fluff layer, spreading gently.
4. Sprinkle the peanut butter cup pieces on top, pressing down gently.
Refrigerate at least an hour, until set. Store bars in refrigerator. They will soften at room temperature.
The colors of the Aspens are peaking this weekend! WH has been taking gorgeous photos. I’ll share some next week. Fall in Colorado is always beautiful with the brilliant yellow Aspens sprinkled in with the dark green Evergreen trees.
P.S. We also have a winner of that fun AmiguruME book that I offered on last week’s blog. We’re sending that out to Nikki, who says her grandma taught her to crochet, and she’d like to make her a mini-me for Christmas. Congratulations, Nikki!
