My new project is a free Ravelry Download – Agitator Mitts. Fingerless mitts crocheted with worsted weight yarn (I’m using Stylecraft Special Aran in the colour Denim) and a 4.25mm hook.
I have learned a new stitch – extended single crochet (I suppose that would be extended double crochet in the UK).
I am making the smaller size as the recipient I have in mind has very small hands, but if I have any doubts about them I may also make a pair in the larger size.
The rawfood diet is going well, though of course we are only on Day Two. I feel better already, except for the stiff neck, which was worked on again by my chiro today. It’s always good to have nutrient-dense snacks so that you don’t feel hungry and go and fall off the wagon at the first tummy rumble. Here’s what I made tonight – they are good!
CLADs (coconut lime almond date balls)
You’ll need a food processor for this. Blitz one cup natural almonds (fully raw if possible, but if you’re in N America they will probably be pasteurized) until they look like breadcrumbs.
Add one cup desiccated coconut and mix briefly.
Pit some fresh soft Medjool dates and pack them into the one cup measure until full. Tip into food processor and blitz again.
Finally, add the juice of one lime and mix again.
Use wet hands (to minimize sticking) to form mixture into small balls, store in an airtight container in the fridge. Will probably last for a few days if you can resist them for that long.
