Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)

I made granola yesterday, and it turned out awesome! It's way better than the last batch I made. Not a sweet so it doesn't feel like I'm eating candy. It's really more of a cereal but I like it that way. Mods: I omitted raisins because I'm not a fan of them, sunflower oil instead of canola oil, Flax seed instead of sesame seed, dried apples for the fruit, and a smidge of sweetened coconut with the unsweetened stuff.

It's delicious, and you can find the recipe here: http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/?p=390

In knitting news, I started a cowl for my fiancé last night. It's white which is a little scary for me. I'm always afraid I'm going to get it dirty before I even give to her.

Oh, and I have a question for you folks; If you ask your significant other to give you their foot for measuring, do you think they'll guess that you're making them socks?

Me: Give me your foot
Him: Why?
Me: Just give me your foot!
Him: (gives me his foot) You're making me socks aren't you?
Me: No! (In a sarcastic tone) No, I'm not making you socks! Goddammit! lol
Him: Riiiight… It's kind of obvious…
Me: Dammit! I'm not making you socks!

*sigh* I lost didn't I? Happy Saturday everyone, one more day in the contest!

    Just cuz he was so "I-know-what-you're-doing" about it, knit him some insoles to put in his shoes. Tell him it's a new yarn that's been treated to work like odor-eaters. Then, while he's trying to pretend he loves them, bring out the socks. Um, does he read these comments?

    Oh, that totally sounds like my kind of granola, especially with your mods to the recipe! Yum!

    That granola looks good.

    I've been trying to guess foot sizes by measuring people's shoes.

    Well I figure that when you buy socks there are basically 2 sizes - mens and womens so when I knit them I make them based solely on the gender except when it is obvious that someone's foot is like ginormous.

    Oops. I thought I left a comment here about how much I love granola. I guess I misspelled the word verification.

    That granola sounds so good! I have a similar problem with my boyfriend. I had to measure him for the sweater, thus he spends a good amount of time guessing what it looks like.
