That Nice Stitch Cowl

My slipped stitch project for one of the Loopy Academy projects was That Nice Stitch Cowl. It is a very simple cowl and it is quite pretty. Nicole and I started them in mid-February and probably by the end of February, she had hers finished but I just finished mine this week.

These would make great Christmas gifts and you can probably get two of them (if you don’t make them too long) from one large skein of sock yarn. I made a couple of mistakes, simply because I wasn’t paying attention to the row count and instead of doing a repeat 4 times, I would do it three times (or whatever it was .. I seemed to get it wrong more than I got it right), but it doesn’t look like there’s anything wrong unless someone is counting my rows.

I’ve officially finished the second semester of Loopy Academy and need to get my extra credit project finished, then get my yarn wound for the first Camp Loopy project!

Pork Chops in the Pressure Cooker

This is the pork chop recipe I was looking for when I saw the tapioca pudding recipe. I’ve made this recipe several times. It’s so easy and so delicious. It’s so good that I now double it so we’ll have enough leftovers for another dinner, and a lunch.

I like a thinner gravy so I don’t do anything to thicken it. When I take the pork chops out from being browned, I add one sliced onion and brown it a bit, then I pour in a bit of white wine, then follow the recipe. It is so good! And so easy! 

And . . I love rice and gravy!
