So, I am pretty excited about a new website- Tasty Kitchen- from Ree Drummond of The Pioneer Woman.

Go check it out. I'm a tad frustrated right now about my inability to re-order ingredients in a recipe I entered, but I think that it is a little bug that should be fixed soon.

Knitting meme (For my personal enjoyment)

I feel like doing this for some reason, so feel free to either ignore or enjoy. ;o)

Mark with bold the things you have knit at least once, with italics the ones you plan to do sometime, and leave the rest.

I did stars instead of bold, because bolded text isn't very noticeable on my blog.
