cold feet? not anymore!

legwarmers: often worn in ballet, these nifty little warmers look even better out of the studio.. and they're so easy- think disc one, season one of sex and the city- yeah, thats fast, i know. it's pretty much knitting for cheaters. knitting is something that takes a bit of time ad practice to learn to do in a flawless manner. however, when i discovered these things called "knifty knitters", i immediately was excited about how easy it looked, and i was right. anyone can make these legwarmers or any other tube-shaped knit you want (tube scarfs are super in right now). just follow the instructions on the package after you buy a gorgeous yarn. i also just bought the rectangular shaped knitter (at walmart for $9), so the options are endless.. good luck!

just made these absolutely delicious HOMEMADE cinnamon rolls from LOTTIE & DOOF; and just like Tim says.. i know everyone is scared of using yeast and immediately shies away from a recipe that has this listed as an ingredient. and i had NEVER used yeast before this recipe; but they worked great and the dough rose.. and i had a delicious brunch that everybody was raving about!




(of course their presentation is wayy better, but my little homemade version is cute too, i thought)
see the recipe here
