Things that make you go....hmmn...

Everyone knows I am a huge fan of Vogue Knitting. Why I say that, I don't know because I've never once knit anything out of my vast collections of these magazines. But I want to, I really want to. It's all a problem with time. Because most of what I want to knit out of these magazines is very time consuming and I can't stop knitting things for other people long enough to accomplish anything so time consuming for myself! After leafing through this magazine, it stayed on the newstand. I like Vogue... but this issue.. not so much. There is an adorable hat and scarf set, but that is all I saw that I would knit. (someday)
I have no significant knitting to report. But next weekend my sister, our daughters, and a friend are going away to the nearby ski resort to knit (and eat :-). So lots of knitting should get accomplished by all of us. Hopefully we can keep my sister off the slopes long enough to knit. There are no other skiers among us except for my little pregnant niece who will have to sit this season out!
Tonight we decided to have a soup sampling at the office to chase away the winter blahs. I made this:
It's excellent, but you have to really season it at the end. It's pretty bland to start out. And I'd do the whole pound of bacon next time instead of just 8 oz.
Happy weekend. Happy knitting.

I haven't seen that issue of Vogue, but I have the one with the Michael Kors sweater on the front that I am just DYING to knit. Of course, I haven't (yet). I haven't had the corn chowder recipe you linked, but I have had paula deen's corn chowder recipe and it is YUMMY.
