Episode 153: Canning Frenzy


Oh yes, we DID!

Celebrating our listeners who have joined the CogKnitive 25 – , 50 –, and 75 – Bear Clubs for MBP. You can see who they all are right here. Great work!

Have YOU completed 25, 50, or 75 bears for Mother Bear Project? Send me your snail and a link to your Ravelry projects page, and CogKnitive will send you a special wristband to celebrate with you.

Add yourself to our CogKNITive Listeners Map.

We have a website at You can find older episodes there.

You can now subscribe to the BLOG on your Kindle or Kindle app.

I am gemmadw on  Twitter and Pinterest, and DrGemma on Plurk.

The Annual CogKnitive Mother Bear project CAL/KAL is in progress until I get to Stitches West in late February. You can enter ANY bear that you have made since MARCH 2, 2012, BUT you MUST post it to the group NOW, even if you've already posted it. That way, I can easily find who wants to be entered for our prizes.

What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:

Still in Progress:

The Tehachapi Project Shawl. In part one of the D chart section! Again! After I had to rip back to the last lifeline when the needle disconnected itself from the cable. But we survived and all is well.

Bear #27 for the CAL/KAL.


Scraptacular 3 and Son of Scraptacular (IV) are back on hold..

Bertha's Mad, Mysterious Mobius.  I needed a new skill. So much for knitting monogamy.

Dizzy Blondes:
What do I do with 10 pounds of cashmere right off the critter?

Finishing a random batt of silvery brown alpaca that I just had lying in stash--not one of my herd.

Hypersensitive folks: Work on not reacting with anger, even though you are feeling hurt more often than other people who do not have to deal with high sensitivity. Yeah, it's not fair.

Something I Really Like:
Lemon curd. Oh. Heavens. Goes well inside a baked cake.
SB Canning
Food in Jars

Put A  Lid On It:
Loretta1031 and I did a HUGE day of canning pears and lemons. Recipes canned included:
Cinnamon-pear jam, ginger-pear preserves, spirited pears with rum and cabernet. Lemon-honey jelly, lemon curd, fruit slices in water, applesauce. Experimental mustard.




Mother Bear CAL/KAL update, looking forward to Stitches West, dogmatism and podcasters--remember we are only making recommendations. Aaaaand it is COLD on the farm!
