nataliejost My hot cocoa mix recipe, originally from 2007 but updated recently when a friend with a coffee bar found a recipe that included cayenne pepper. Oh. My. - 4 cups dry milk
- 3 cups sugar (4 if you like)
---- Powdered sugar works as well but sift it first so it's not clumpy
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa
For better flavor...
- 1tbsp salt - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (don't need much!!)
Mix 4-5 level spoonfuls into a mug of hot water.

nataliejost The twin monsters ran out of clean jammies so I grabbed a couple of my old tees for them. My birth year and home state! 21h

nataliejost Still working on that shawl from September. I finished a throw in the same design a year ago and it's been a struggle to adapt it to a triangle. Lots of math! But I have it now and as soon as I finish the sample I can begin writing the pattern. 4d

nataliejost Staying inside today. Again. It's a darn good thing I'm an introvert or I'd be nuts with cabin fever by now. 1w

nataliejost After four snow days and a two hour delay this morning I went ahead and took the twins to school, because they wanted to go, and only because they wanted to go. Lord bless their sweetness, but don't ever let them think that a classroom is the best place to learn. 1w

nataliejost Would you believe I've never wet-blocked anything before? Crazy. I might have been known to gently heat press something with my iron but never go through the whole soak, drain, dampen, lay out, pin, and WAIT part. The waiting, oh man, the waiting. But I forced myself to do it for this scarf and it's so worth it not to have it roll up on itself. And the corners are all pointy! FYI this is a simple slanted stockinette: K1, M1, K to 3rd to last, K2tog, K1 // purl all wrong side rows thanks again to @phydeauxdesigns for the wonderfully draping yarn and spectacular color. #knitted #knitting #knittersofevansville #knittersofinstagram #notforsalebecauseispilledcoffeeonit #wool #yarn #handmade #knitpatterns 3w

nataliejost Rounding the last few laps of an iPad sweater. For each one I make there are two more I've gotten half finished before ripping back and starting again because the colors weren't right. That's the hardest part. Picking colors that work. This one is light gray throughout, with denim blue, then medium gray, then a beautiful mustard-olive #Malabrigo wool. 3w

nataliejost I'm not much of a planner. Things rarely work out the way I plan so I find it better just to do and let be done. I'm nicer that way. So when 2/3 of the kids have a meltdown Sunday morning, I calmly send the other with dad and usher the two back inside. If you don't want to go to church right now I get it. I hear you. We're not going to fight about it. But you're not going to watch TV or play either. We're all going to clean the house today. Maybe next Sunday you'll wake up a little sooner and get dressed a little faster. 3w

nataliejost Enjoying this morning. I've worked every Saturday since October but a conflict with my groom's work leaves me sleeping in today. So I made the girls pancakes for the first time in months and now they're making their classroom valentines. 3w
