Comfort Food, Comfort Knitting




I'm feeling a bit under the weather, more tired than ill I think. J was very sweet and went to the grocery store with my list to do the week's shopping (usually we go together).

I think of this knitting project I just finished as the knitting version of "comfort food" It's a comfortable, cozy creation, called "Mr. Greenjeans". It was named for the color "greenjeans" of Miss Priss yarn it was created with. My yarn, called "Perfection" by Kramer is a made in the USA wool/acyclic blend that is machine washable.

I blocked it yesterday, sewed in a few ends and the button today, and it is ready to go on it's first trip with me tomorrow.

In the meantime, in my kitchen, I was preparing my idea of "comfort food" this time of year, my homemade chicken pot pie. See here for my recipe in an earlier post. Unfortunately the photos of the finished product were eaten by Flickr when my account was deleted by them some time back. I'll try to get new photos later today before we eat it.

PS here is the finished pie:

Beautiful and comfy looking sweater! Very talented you are!!!

Comfort food is such a fav around here. Hubs cooked Sunday using the clay roaster. Venison, carrots, onion, and baby red potato's. A bit of spice, put the lid on and let it bake at 295 for several hours... I kept going outside and coming back in just for the yummy aroma's! LOL
