I would make lots of jewelry for my knitting peeps!




Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I just finished preparing the Cranberry Relish for this evening’s feast, and I wanted to share my recipe and yarn inspiration with you all:

1 bag cranberries

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup fresh orange juice

1 teaspoon grated orange peel


place all 4 ingredients in saucepan.  Turn on low, and stir until sugar dissolves.  Let cook approximately 10-12 minutes–cranberries should be soft.

Remove from flame, and add:

1/2 cup toasted walnuts, cut into small pieces

1 orange peeled and chopped (no seeds please)

Stir and transfer to serving dish.  Let stand until lukewarm.  Refrigerate or freeze, depending on how much time you have.

Enjoy enjoy enjoy.
