    image

    Thin yarn

    Circular needles size 3.25mm

    8 small buttons

    Using the magic loop method,

    CO 52 stitches, divide half the number of stitches on each needle

    Row 1: K2, P2, K2, P2…. until the end of the needle // P2, K2, P2, K2… until the end of the needle

    Rows 2-6: Repeat row 1

    Row 7: K all stitches, all rows for about 2”

    Row 8: K2, BO 22 stitches, K2 // K all stitches

    Row 9: K2, CO 22 stitches, K2 // K all stitches

    Rows 10-13: K all stitches, all rows

    Row 14: K10, C6F, K10 // K all stitches

    Repeat from row 10 to 14 for about 2”, ending with a row 14

    Increase

    Row 15: Kfb first stitch, K all the rest of the stitches // Kfb first stitch, K all the rest of the stitches

    Rows 16-18: K all stitches, all rows

    Row 19: K11, C6F, K10 // K all stitches

    Rows 20-23: K all stitches, all rows

    Row 24: K11, C6F, K10 // K all stitches

    Rows 25-27: K all stitches

    Row 28: Repeat row 15

    Row 29: K12, C6F, K10 // K all stitches

    Rows 30-33: K all stitches

    Row 34: K12, C6F, K10 // K all stitches

    Rows 35-38: K all stitches

    Row 39: K12, C6F, K10 // K all stitches

    Rows 40-42: K all stitches

    Row 43: Kfb first stitch, K all the rest of the stitches // Kfb first stitch, K all the rest of the stitches

    Repeat from row 29 to 43 until your whole work measures about 20”, and always increasing 1 stitch at the beginning of rows 29, 34 and 39 (ex. last increase went from knitting 11 stitches to 12, next increase will be 13 stitches and so on..).   You will have to end with an even number of stitches after all your increases, in my case I ended with an increase number of 20 stitches.

    Row 44: K2, P2, K2, P2… all stitches on both needles for about 2”

    BO loosely so it won’t be too tight on your legs and then sew 4 buttons on top of your plait… YOU ARE DONE!!

  2. You Cannot Rest Here

    meeplol:

    Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”

    Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?

    I do.

    Don’t you fuckin do this to me

Stuffed Mushrooms requires an oven and either a stovetop or a microwaveIngredients:  * 1 or 2 packages of baby bella, white, or cremini mushrooms (if they’re loose than a pound or 2, I think) * 1 bulb of garlic (minced garlic in a jar should also work okay for this) * butter or olive oil (or any other oil you prefer) * breadcrumbs * salt and pepper optional ingredients: * cheese (I used cheddar) * bacon  * nuts you’re going to need a baking tray and foil, and either a bowl to microwave in or a pan. You’re also gonna need either cooking spray or oil to coat the pan.Steps: * Clean the mushrooms/peel garlic if it’s fresh and not already peeled (about 5 garlic pieces per package of mushrooms should be enough)* Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (continue prep while it’s warming up) * Take the stems out of the mushrooms (you kinda twist and pull them out) and set the stems aside * If you washed the mushrooms with water, set the not-stem-parts aside on a paper towel to dry * Chop up the garlic, and then the mushroom stems. This involves some guesswork- you aim to have enough to fill the mushroom. You may have extra stems, if so you can save them for other stuff later. Usually you can either eat them raw or cook them. You can also add them to the mix, and if you have some left over you can use it as a topping for bread or mix it in with pasta. * Take the chopped up garlic and mushroom stems, add either butter or oil, and either put in a pan and sauté it, or microwave it for around a minute. Season with salt, pepper, and/or any herb-y seasonings you have around. * Once that’s done, add between a teaspoon and a tablespoon of breadcrumbs to the mix, and stir everything up together. If you want to add bacon or nuts, mix that in as well. If you want to add cheese, you can mix that in too, but if you’re using a melty-kinda cheese, I’d suggest putting a small piece in each mushroom cap before you add the filling. * Fill the space where the stem used to be in each mushroom with the filling mix Line a baking tray with foil, and lightly coat the foil with oil or cooking spray so the mushrooms won’t stick * Arrange the mushrooms on the tray. They’re easier to take out later if you leave a little space between them, like, ½ inch on each side or so. * If your oven’s done preheating by this point, put the tray in the oven for around 15 minutes, after which point they should be ready to eat, but you can leave them a little longer if you want. Some liquid will come out while they’re cooking (kinda like gravy), it tastes pretty good with bread!  * Remember to let them cool for a few minutes before eating! This took me about half an hour, prep and cooking all together. Cleanup is also relatively minimal.This recipe is vegetarian, and can be vegan/nut free. it can be either a snack or a meal, depending how much you make.
