Kathleen Veggie dish and dessert
Judi thank you for hosting tonight. It was fun! Thank Lynn too for opening your house to us. It was nice meeting Pamela. :) The fireman suit you made for your grandson is so stinkin' cute!!!! I'm sure you'll have the scarf finished before you know it!
Dawnelle you certainly are the queen of socks!!!! I'm glad you finished the Christmas socks. Phew that's out of the way. The 3 x 1 rib you'll be doing in your sleep before you know it! :) It was nice to meet Faith. I say we buy her her own Sudoku game. She caught on to that so quickly!!!
Ingrid, Pam and Kathleen we missed you and hope you were doing something fun.
Judi and I are going to serenade Ingrid one of these days with our duo of sisters :) Ingrid, we know how you love to be sung to LOL!
There were never such devoted sisters,
Never had to have a chaperone, No sir,
I'm here to keep my eye on her
Every little thing that we are wearing
When a certain gentleman arrived from Rome
She wore the dress, and I stayed home
All kinds of weather, we stick together
The same in the rain and sun
Two different faces, but in tight places
We think and we act as one
Those who have seen us *
Know that not a thing could come between us
Many men have tried to split us up, but no one can
Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister
And Lord help the sister, who comes between me and my man

Dawn I'm glad you are ready to get that sleeve underway. It will be done before you know it! I am really looking forward to seeing the final project.
How are you coming along Kathleen with the things you were working on last night? Did you stay up to work on them.
I went home and made the thumb for the mitten and wove in all the ends. I even cast on for the next one. I am so tired this morning!

For those who are on my name there is DawnK (I know, how original).
Ok all of you loopy ravelry users post your user name for us.

Judi thanks for hosting tonight. You house and in particular your tree was just lovely!! Thanks for the nachos. Oh, they were good and hit the spot! The cheese (well I'm not even going to try to spell that) were very good too! Your scarf is coming along nicely! Imagine we all found the time to knit a little!
Dawn the you know what that you made for you know who (You never know who is reading the blog LOL) looks wonderful. You did an awesome job :) I'm glad you got to cake your hanks. (I love saying that!)
Susan it was good to see you. Two weeks in a row for you. You are on a roll! BTW I love the shoes you had.
Ingrid, Cathy, Kathleen and Pam we missed you. Ingrid I hope you were loving that baby for all of us. Cathy I'm sure you were at the school committee meeting. Pam I'm sorry you weren't feeling well! Kathleen I hope you will share pictures of the performance for us. :)
Well ladies, as always, it was a fun night.
See you all next day after Monday!
Hello Loopy Ewes! In case any of you like to ring in the holiday season with a performance of "The Nutcracker", there just so happens to be such a performance this weekend at the Tilden Arts Center at CCCC. There are shows at 2pm and 7pm this Saturday and at 2pm on Sunday. Since we have the Nutcracker practically running through our veins every December, I thought I'd give a shout out to any of "ewe" who might be interested If you have other things to do, like knitting up a storm, shopping, etc., it's all good with me.
(I have to admit that I'm also posting this in an effort to gradually send D.elle's post of the intriguing knitted sculpture far and away. No offense there, D.elle! I will say though that whoever knitted it is pretty damn talented!)
I hope all of you Loopy Ewes had lots of fun tonight! I miss being there, but I'll be there with bells on next week! (By the way, my ears are ringing - stop talking about me!!! ;-) Kidding!)
Have a good night!
I finally learned how to blog! Watch out Loopy Ewes

First, let me say Diane your latkes were soooo good! I ate so many and enjoyed EVERY BITE!!! Thank you so much for making them for us tonight! The chocolate cakes so just as scrumptious! Thank you and Dawn also for sharing your Hanukkah evening with us. It was a treat!
I think this is probably the night we have done the least amount of knitting
Dawnelle that blue color yarn you were using tonight was just gorgeous!!!! Your new home is just beautiful! I am so happy to be among the first guest you've had. What a great house it is. I wish you many many years of happiness there!
Susan it was good seeing you. :) You got so much done on your scarf. I looked once and was surprised about how much you had done!
Judi, your granddaughter will love that little purse. And congrats on the new grandchild to be! It'll be our third loopy ewe grandchild (since we all began knitting together! :) Good things come in threes!
Pam, I would love to see the toddler mitten when you are done. I think Mackenzie might need a pair :)
Ingrid we are all looking forward to seeing pictures of that new grand baby! I hope all went well. I'm very excited to here all about that little boy.
Kathleen, you're probably sitting on the beach, having a icy drink thinking about knitting right now. :) :) :) We missed you!
Dawn and Diane thanks again and I look forward to seeing you both tomorrow at school.

Last night it was just myself and the two Dawns, but we had a great time as always. Dawn K prepared an amazing spread that we feasted on all night long! So good! (Will you please post the recipes, Dawn?) Your house looks so festive and Christmasy! I love all of the beautiful decorations that you've made, you craftsy girl! Dawnelle as a brand-new homeowner, braved the night and her tiredness to knit, chat and eat! Dawn K, you have quite the stash of mittens (it made me realize even more what a slow knitter I am!). You are a knitting machine! Dawnelle, the socks you are working on are gorgeous! It makes me a little jealous that you are on your second one, o sock guru! Dawn, thanks for winding all of my yarn. I hope I can finish all of my projects by Christmas!
We missed you, Pam, Ingrid, Cathy and Judi! Judi, we hope you are feeling better soon! Ingrid, we hope your daughter is feeling well, and we are anxious for news! Cathy, slow down and save a little time to knit! It's good for you! ;-)
I will miss you all next week, but I hope you all have a wonderful time with Dawnelle's mom and the latkes! I'm so sad to be missing it, so eat an extra one for me! I'll see you all when I get back! Happy Knitting! :-) Kathleen

Pan-fried Onion Dip (from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook)
2 large yellow onions
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup good mayonnaise
Place the cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat until smooth. Add the onions and mix well. Taste for seasonings. Serve at room temperature.
Cut the onions in half and then slice them into 1/8-inch thick half-rounds. (You will have about 3 cups of onions.) Heat the butter and oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onions, cayenne, salt, and pepper and saute for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 more minutes until the onions are browned and caramelized. Allow the onions to cool.
* I use only 2T butter and 2T olive oil to saute the onions. This time, instead of using 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 mayo, I used 1/3 cup Greek yogurt, 1/3 cup light sour cream and 1/3 cup light mayo to try to make it a little lighter.
Chicken Sausage in Puff Pastry (adapted slightly from Lamb Sausage in Puff Pastry from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook)
4 sun-dried tomato chicken sausages (I used Trader Joe's)
1 sheet commercial puff pastry, thawed
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water or milk, for egg wash
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a saute pan, heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until the sausage is browned on all sides. Cool to room temperature.
Unfold the puff pastry on a lightly floured board, and brush the top side with mustard. Cut the puff pastry in half lengthwise and crosswise to make four equal pieces. Place one sausage at the edge of each piece and roll it up tightly, overlapping the end by 1/2-inch and sealing the pastry by brushing the edge with water. Roll the other 3 pieces of sausage in puff pastry. Place the 4 rolls, seam side down, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with the egg wash. Lightly score each roll diagonally to make 5 or 6 equal pieces. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned. Slice and serve hot with mustard. (I like to use a combination of equal parts Dijon mustard and mango chutney or Dijon mustard and apricot preserves.)Dawn K was kind enough to post the Peanut Butter Cookie recipe in the sidebar, so you can check it out over there.
I hope everyone has a delicious Thanksgiving! Happy Knitting in between friends and family. (I love a long car ride for that reason only!)
See you next Wednesday, Loopy Ladies!

What a lovely evening! Sorry I missed the first hour, but thanks for not having fun while I wasn't there. You guys are always so thoughtful that way!!!
Pam, first let me say on behalf of all of us HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you have a great day tomorrow! Your felted mitten came out great! I really like the cuff you made to add. That is really cool. You got some nice yarn from Heather's shop. I'll let you know what I'd like from KnitPicks. Hopefully you'll get enough of an order for free shipping!
Dawn, you are a mitten making machine!!! I'm looking forward to seeing the ones you are making now felted! Thank you for the snacks. It's always nice leaving with a full tummy! :) The birthday cake was soooooooo good! I'm having the piece you sent home with me with my lunch tomorrow, maybe with that cup of coffee!
Ingrid, I'm so glad your finding that pattern easy to work with. It takes a while to wrap your mind around getting it started but it is just so easy once you know what you are doing LOL!
Kathleen, I like the yarn you bought. I think it is so kind of you to make those mittens for that little boy! Livia's mittens look really nice. I'm interested in seeing the cuff on them when they are done!
Judi, the blanket you are making is sure full of love, with the amount of time and attention you are putting into it. I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated!
I'm looking forward to next Tuesday. Maybe we can set aside a little time to talk about secret Santa!
Monday, November 12, 2007
I took last night off from knitting, but now it's back to mittens! Seems like there's a mitten trend in this loopy group, which is awesome because I think they are so much fun to knit! I love seeing all of the photos of the finished projects too! See you all Wednesday! K
IRL, the mitten on the right doesn't really have a wonky looking thumb - it's just a shadow & the way the mitten is bent...
I also finished one fleece lined mitten and am 1/2 done with the second one (thanks to DawnK!
See you guys Wednesday, ingrid
Sunday, November 11, 2007
Here's a picture of the mitten turned inside out so you can see what the fleece looks like inside. On Friday I went to Heather's Shop and bought some more roving and yarn to make some more for Christmas gifts. I've already started another pair and am about 1/3 done with the first mitten.

After you have basted the meat place it in a baking dish (0r pam) and season with your favorite seasonings. I use salt, pepper and sometimes onion. Sprinkle the top with flour. Add some water to the bottom of the baking dish. I use between 1-2 cups of water. Place in the 500º oven for 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes baste the meat with juices and reduce heat to 350º. Cook for 20 minutes per pound. The meat will come out medium well. I reduce the cooking time to 18 minutes per pound. Baste the meat every 20 minutes while it is cooking.
Wednesday, November 7, 2007
Here are the before and after photos!
Now I have mitten fever! I'm so bummed that I won't see you ladies tonight, but I hope you have a wonderful time! Don't have too much fun without me! ;-) K

Hello you loopy ewes! Despite the fact that I didn't feel well I had a fun night. I didn't think I'd last as long as I did!
Judi the snacks were good! I enjoyed the meatballs. I've never had turkey meatballs. I also liked those chips :) :) Thanks for all the goodies :) I must say the colors of that blanket you are so nice! I'm sure it will be a treasure for the recipient!
Dawnelle it looks like you've done a lot of work on that sweater. Did you have a question you wanted to ask me. I seem to remember you starting to ask something but don't recall if you did! I'm sorry you had to unknit your sock. It is a very pretty one! Thank goodness for Judi's feet!
Kathleen, I've been there done that on the mitten. Trust me the third one is much easier! I really like that hat you are making and want to try one! I forgot to ask what color flowers are you going to make? I'll look through the mitten patterns for you to see if I have one that might work.
Ingrid, the mitten you made is so pretty. The yarn is so soft!!!! It knits up pretty easily doesn't it! I don't think you will have a problem with the stuffed one you are making. Yours will be better because of my mistakes! I wish I knew to stuff my thumb better!!! It knits up pretty quickly. If you need help the hot line will be open! (just not tonight!)
I came home to fine two nicely carved jack-o-lanterns. Rich and Timmy did a good job! I'll have to take pictures to share! (the sharp objects were kept away from me!) I hope to finish my second mitten this weekend. I also want to work on that baby blanket some. Judi here's the pattern for the baby blanket.
Have a fun night tomorrow ladies!
Thursday, October 25, 2007
What's this I hear about a trip to Falmouth? Wait a minute, you can't go without me! (Actually, I was at the Sage last Sunday! I bought the yarn for the baby blanket I'm working on.)
I can do snacks nest Tuesday, but would you mind if we come to your house Ingrid? If not, I can do it. Let's talk!
Glad to be back. Baltimore was great, not much fun, but interesting stuff. See you all on Tuesday. Judi

1 (29 ounce) cans sliced peaches, drained
1 (29 ounce) cans pear halves, drained and sliced
1 (10 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained
1 (15 ounce) can apricot halves, drained and sliced
1/2 cup dried cherries
Kathleen, I am loving the color of your mittens. They are so pretty. I think your W&T look perfect!!!! When it felts it will be just lovely!!! Do you have the yarn for Livy Loo's pair?
Dawn that sweater is going to be so nice! I'm sure it will be halfway done by Tuesday when we meet again LOL!!! You did a lot tonight! I wish I were free tomorrow at 4. I'd love to go with you. Yes, let's plan that trip to Falmouth! I'm sure I could come up with something I need to buy :) :)
GO RED SOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Friday, October 19, 2007
Loopy Ewes, I have to thank you for the beautiful flowers and the adorable sheep card. You ladies went above and beyond with both. Don't you all know that I selfishly invited you all to the sleepover so that I could have a blast with all of my knitting buddies? You guys were doing me a favor!!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Kathleen :-)

What can I say. I had the most fun last night and this morning. I uploaded the pictures to a slide show and then added this same slide show to our sidebar. Judi if you have some pictures you want to add you can email them to me.
Kathleen your mother's home is simply gorgeous!!!! I am sure I speak for all of us when I say THANK EWE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The scarves that Kathleen, Dawnelle, and Judi were making really are cool looking. I think you all pooled a great supply of yarn.
Pam I love the mitten! I want to make one to not felt for a school project :) Oh and that blueberry bread pudding was so good. Please do share the recipe!
Cathy, YAY! You finished your booga bag. I will certainly be speedy felting it for you. I think we need to call you the purling princess now :) Judi will love the dish cloth you are making. Thanks for your snack. The chips and salsa were my favorite!
Judi (or Udi!) you certainly got all of your felting done last night! The booga bag is so pretty. I love the colors!! As I mentioned above the scarf you began is so pretty!! Thanks for the chicken and rice. Both were very tasty! I also can't tell you how much I enjoyed that coffee this morning. I could use a cup right now :)
Dawnelle. Thank you so much for that mitten help. I hope the second one comes out easier for me. That W&T really threw me off last night. Your scarf is so lovely as well. Thanks also for sharing the Captain with me :) :) :) :) The sundaes from last night were so delicious! I also enjoyed the fruit this morning.
Kathleen, I just love those socks you finished. The colors are beautiful. Your scarf is pretty cool looking too. I think I'm most intrigued by the knitting needles you were using! :) The chili you made was so very good. Thanks! Your frittata looked pretty good. I'm sure others will rave about for me! (sorry I'm not an egg fan).
As for me...well, I'm a bit disappointed in the mitten I am making. The W&T holes aren't making me happy! I did finish the first one tonight. Maybe the second one won't be as frustrating with a little more sleep. Speaking of sleep. I came home and took a three hour nap with Mackenzie!
The field trip was fun. I enjoyed all the displays and am looking forward to making those mittens (same as yours Ingrid) after I wrap up my last few lingering projects.
I hope you ladies enjoy the pictures.
Friday, October 12, 2007
Hmmmmm. What are you worried about now you might be asking yourself....I am hoping that no one decides to "nicknameize" that and simply refer to me as an a$$. Just a thought I will ponder as I go back to sleep!! take care,
Thursday, October 11, 2007
Mostly, I am excited about learning all about felting. Yippee!!
See you guys around 5:30. Judi, the birthday girl.
We're on the brink of our first ever sleepover, Loopy Ewes! I can't wait! I hope you are all as excited as I am. I thought I would post the food line-up, so we all know what goodies to expect in our fun 24 hours, as well as a few reminders.
Snacks - Cathy
Vegetable Chili - Kathleen
Crockpot Chicken - Dawn
Chicken Dish - Judi
Margaritas - Pam
Cider - Kathleen (rum - d.elle?)
Sundaes - Dawnelle
Blueberry Bread Pudding - Pam
Potato Casserole - Dawn
Frittata - Kathleen
Fresh Fruit - Dawnelle
Bacon - Judi
If you are felting, make sure you bring a zippered pillowcase, agitator (like towels or jeans) and blocking materials (plastic bags and cereal boxes) if you are blocking. Also if you like to use a special soap, that might come in handy too.
If you want to join in the Fibonacci knit-a-long, bring some leftover balls of yarn from your stash. The scarf comes together in varying rows of different types of yarn. Anything goes with this project, the more variety, the more potential for an eclectic (if you want), one-of-a-kind Loopy Ewe scarf. You can go as crazy or as conservative as you want. The project calls for size US 10 or US 13 needles.
PJs, toothbrush and your favorite teddy bear, if you need it. It gets chilly at the house, so a jacket, fleece or sweatshirt might come in handy.
And don't forget your knitting! Start thinking of upcoming projects that you'll need awesome yarn for, because we're heading to the 26th Annual Wool Fair the next day.
Any questions, concerns or requests, email me or give me a ring!
Here's to the best sleepover, ever! Kathleen :-)

Pam, I really enjoyed your wonderful home, and the food was grand, as usual. I love your doggies and cat. Thanks for the great margarita. I'm getting into the habit! Thanks, Dawn K, for the encouragement. I love the challenge of knitting, it appeals to my adventurous spirit. One day I will be a seasoned pro!
Looking forward to next week. I'm off to New York tomorrow, can't wait to see the big apple. Peace, Judi
Wednesday, October 3, 2007
Judi how very proud we all are of you for starting that clog! You go girl!!
Pam, it was fun taking a peek at all the projects you are working on. I really liked the color of your mittens.
Dawn, I'm impressed. You are such a fast knitter to not only have finished the scarf, but you make the entire ensemble!! I also love the color of your mitten. I think it would be a nice match to the color in my entrelac scarf ;)
Speaking of lovely colors...Kathleen your yarn is just beautiful! We have to find you a project now to use it on! (I know not a well structured sentence! It's late!) Your sock will be done the next time we meet I'm sure.
Jane, it was so nice to see you. I could sit and listen to your accent all night long! I'm sorry I forgot to say thanks for all the emails you send. They are always fun to read.
I guess we all need to pool our ideas for the big weekend eat off :) :) :) :)
Ingrid, I'm sorry you couldn't make it tonight. You were missed! I will say I took advantage and did a little singing LOL!
Cathy and Sue you were missed as well. I hope to see you both next Wednesday.
Tuesday, October 2, 2007
I wouldn't do this, especially last minute, unless it was something very important - but this involves a friends daughter that I really need to be there for.
I'll send out an email, just incase someone misses the post. I'm bummed that I'm going to miss our get together... see you guys next week.
Wednesday, September 26, 2007
It was a mellow kind of night today. We all need that every now and then. It was nice to have such an international treat for snacks. Ingrid it was all so good. My favorite was the peanuts and coconut mixture. I never would have thought to serve that over rice. YUM YUM!~ Sorry about confusing my two white meats LOL! My mind is elsewhere tonight. Your bag is coming along nicely! I'm sure it will be another one to cross off your list soon. :)
Judi your sock is almost there. Don't give up hope! We'll get you to the end and the second one will be a breeze!!!
Kathleen, you old pro you!!! I am impressed at the precise match up between your two socks.
Oh, and as an aside I can't wait to use FB in a conversation! :) :) Thanks for your witty write up as well!!
Dawnelle that scarf will be done before you know it! I know your sister will just love it! I am looking forward to seeing the shawl you are making your mom. It will be so pretty!
See you all next week.

For those who weren't aware, last weekend was the "pullng the boat from the water" weekend...and it eneded up being quite the adventure! We spend the night on the boat at Billingsgate in Wellfleet waiting for a tow off of this sandbar! One might think that this would be a perfect time to knit, but not until we were towed off and on our way to Dennis could I really start to knit the hat I intended to finish weeks ago...It WILL be done by Wednesday! I do have to tell you that this is not our boat, but this photo is a great representation of our situation! Although, when inside the cabin the angle feels a whole lot smaller! We didn't have a camera, but we did have the two 4 legged friends...they seemed to have a blast, although it felt like they were sizing up who to eat first!! I wish I could have documented the whole ordeal on film!!
Saturday, September 22, 2007
On Friday, Dawnelle, Ingrid and I met up at the Kristal Sunnyside Wool Shop in Brewster. The three of us walked into the tiny shop and our mouths dropped open when we saw all of the beautiful colors of yarn on display. The owner of the shop is very friendly and helpful, and it will be easy to make a trip back in the near future. We were happy to take a satellite trip on behalf of the group and hope that we can all go back for another Loopy Ewe field trip very soon! In the meantime, we have fun news for the weekend of the sleepover, which we'll reveal at our gathering on Wednesday! Sometimes I just love surprises! :-P Kathleen
I mentioned the other night that I found one particular website very helpful while I was in the throes of knitting my sock, especially in the dark hours of the night. Here is a link to the website, so you can check it out if you need to. It was extremely helpful when I was doing the kitchener stitch at the midnight hour.

Oh, ladies it was another fun night. My head hurts from laughing so much :).
Dawnelle thank you for your snacks tonight. The Mexican dip was just scrumptious! I love the socks you made! The colors are beautiful. I also really like the wrap you are going to be making. I'll bet it will be just elegant!
Ingrid, thanks again for being such a sweet hostess! I noticed you counting tonight and tried not to interrupt :)
Kathleen your sock, well what can I say....if a picture says a thousand words then seeing it in person is a million words. Are there that many for spectacular!!
Cathy, your I-cord is coming along nicely. That bag of yours will be done before you know it!
To those who couldn't make it, we missed you!
I'm looking forward to next week and Ingrid it's looks like it's really your night for snacks.
