The Doctor's Scarf

I hire out my knitting skills, mostly to people in my church, and my latest project was the fourth doctor's scarf (from BBC's long-running show Dr. Who) is the original (note: it's between 12 and 14 feet long).
Isn't it hilarious, in the most awful way? Those colors...
The scarf turned out even more gloriously than I expected!

All in all, I'm pretty thrilled with it! It took FOREVER to make and was quite the conversation-starter when I would take my knitting with me.

Slow Cooker Applesauce

Ever since I got my little (seriously, the thing is TINY) slow cooker in December, I've been dying to begin trying out different recipes that require only throwing ingredients in and turning the knob. Today, I made applesauce--it's delicious, no sugar added, and oh-so-simple!

For my 1 1/2 quart slow cooker:
--About 3 large apples (I prefer granny smith, but if you want sweeter without the sugar go for a different variety)

Peel, core, and slice the apples, then cut each slice in half. Fill slow cooker pot to the brim with the apples, then sprinkle a generous helping of cinnamon on top. No need to stir! Plug that baby in and cook on high for about 4 hours (8 hours on low would work just fine as well). It will look like the top layer of apples hasn't cooked, but don't worry. Stir the applesauce to incorporate the cinnamon, and enjoy!

P.S. Don't be surprised to see many more slow cooker recipes on here--I need to build my repertoire of dorm-friendly deliciousness as quickly as possible.
