A Little Heat This Summer ~ a post by Kelli

Knit a Long anyone? I can't wait to start knitting this yarn, I've been saving for something special.The Prairie shawl should knit up nicely. The yarn is a Shalimar yarn called "Breathless" and that is about how this heavy fingering weight yarn makes me feel, the color is Bing~

Just couldn't do two batches of just raspberry, I created my version of Raspberry,Pepper,Lime Jam, I added a small amount of heat and tang(I can't taste the tang), I'm not the adventurous one when it comes to food, but I do like how my mildly warm/sweet jam turned out, maybe I could gift some to a lucky participant in our KAL? Happy summer, Kelli


  1. wow ~ we were both busy this weekend! did you jam with your mom? and hot peppers....very adventurous of you, my dear ;)

  2. oh my goodness that yarn looks gorgeous! a kal sounds like fun, i've still never joined one! i have so much secret wedding knitting right now...crossing my fingers i finish that in time!
    i bet the jam is delicious. :)

  3. Didn't jam with my mom,was enjoying the quiet, it's a little harder making jam by oneself.

    I was buying berries and the thought popped in my head to add red pepper.

    Still need to take Grace berry picking, maybe I'll make some more.

    Thanks Lori ann, I'm still on the hunt for the perfect crackers,and cream cheese...any ideas.

    Hope your secret wedding knitting goes smooth and you join us~
