Pizza Mummies and WIP Wednesday

After receiving an email yesterday with a link to these Pizza Mummies, I decided it might be a good way to bring some fun to an otherwise dreary, rainy day. We bought some sprouted grain English muffins, organic pizza sauce, organic string cheese, olives and green pepper. I'm not an olive fan, and therefore, don't generally keep them in the house so this project was great because all 3 boys decided they do like olives.

They turned out to be a very scary treat. :)

On to WIP Wednesday...I finally finished this group of hats I've been working on for a long, long time.

And I started knitting this blanket that will be part of Paulie's Christmas. I couldn't decide if I wanted to commit to another Christmas blanket. Ultimately, I took the plunge, and it's knitting up rather quickly.

The pattern is a Quaker Rib Afghan and the yarn is organic cotton in it's natural toffee color from Knit Picks. I've decided that I like the fact that this pattern repeats in a chunk of 14 rows as opposed to the last blanket I knit. I can set myself a goal of knitting one repeat every day, and in 5 days, I'm already 25% of the way done with the blanket. (Yes, I'm still trying to be in the moment and enjoy the knitting for what it is, but I don't want to take forever so I get bored with the project either.)

Happy crafting, everyone!


  1. Those pizza's are adorable! We may have to make those on Halloween night.

  2. Oh, those pizza mummies are darling! We'll have to make them this week. :)

  3. I've been dreaming of a comfy knit blanket for sometime--that looks perfect!

  4. I love those little pizzas. B is the only one in our family who likes olives so I never have them in the house either-I may have to get some to make these!

  5. i love those pizzas! Thanks for the idea!


I love to hear what you think!
