Well, looks like its time for another update. This one is about my new passion: knitting.

I first got interested in it from my jewelry-making expeditions. See, I had seen a lot of really nice old fashioned lace necklaces and wanted to see if I could knit some lace for my necklace. So, I walked into a local knitting shop and tried to get some lace knitting class and was told, right off the bat, that I was trying to get to the moon on a pogo stick. You have to have a black belt in knitting to make lace, and I dont even know the basics. So, I started knitting; hoping that I might be able to make lace someday.

Couple of projects later I'm hopelessly addicted.

See, I always thought knitting was for your grandma that made those shitty sweaters and ugly-ass scarves out of dime-store nasty yarn that's more fit for kids crafts than being anywhere near your skin. And for the most part it still is; but at the knitting shop I found that it doesn't have to be that way. You can make wristwarmers out of alpaca, a cowel out of real wool, and maybe even an awesome snail hat.

Now Imma post my knitting stuff, and maybe that'll spread the word of how knitting should be: gorgeous looking, good quality material, fun, and above all; not just for your granny.

---

Well, everybody ELSE has one. So I decided to do what the cool kids are doing and start a kninkmeme of my own. Its a place to ask for-and fill-requests of forgotten realms fanfic and fanart. Fans gotta stick together, you know.

Tell your friends.

Oh, its delicious (baking friend in college gave me the recipe). Its also rather easy to make. Here it is:

Pan de Muertos (Mexican Bread of the Dead)
Ingredients (makes one loaf about the size of your head)

1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons anise seed
1/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons orange zest
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon orange zest
2 tablespoons white sugar

Directions

Heat the milk and the butter together in a medium saucepan, until the butter melts. Remove from the heat and add them warm water. The mixture should be around 110 degrees F (43 degrees C).

In a large bowl combine 1 cup of the flour, yeast, salt, anise seed and 1/4 cup of the sugar. Beat in the warm milk mixture then add the eggs and orange zest and beat until well combined. Stir in 1/2 cup of flour and continue adding more flour until the dough is soft.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic.

Place the dough into a lightly greased bowl cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (an oven that has been warmed up to the lowest setting and allowed to cool a little is ideal). This will take about 1 to 2 hours.

Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for about 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from oven let cool slightly then brush with glaze.

To make glaze: In a small saucepan combine the 1/4 cup sugar, orange juice and orange zest. Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil for 2 minutes, or just until it begins to thicken. Brush over top of bread while still warm. Sprinkle glazed bread with powdered sugar.
