Gearharts Pistachio Toffee is some of the best of the chocolate treats we've tasted. You must try it!!
And in case you are needing a little "glow", here are Uncle Joe's Mint Balls.
The Secret Language of Knitters by Mary Beth Temple is a treasure trove of knitting terms and definitions.
Sadly, we will not be attending the Smokey Mountain Fiber Arts Festival March 17-19 but will be heading down south to Florida to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary and see some old friends. But we do plan on attending Stitches South on April 14-17 so we hope to see you there!
ON MY NEEDLES:
My February Lady Sweater is making slow progress.
The mittens I started for my daughter with my handspun are completed...just in time for Spring.
But most of my time has been spent on my Citron Shawl. I have thoroughly enjoyed knitting this.
All I have left is the crochet beaded bind-off.
SOCKS AROUND THE WORLD:
SAW 4 is still in need of some knitters to complete the roster. If interested in taking a spot, pm me on Ravelry or send me a note to TheKnitWits@comcast.net.
WHAT'S IN OUR WINEGLASS:
This week it was Mango Martinis. Here's the recipe:
2 oz. Absolut Mango Vodka
1 oz. Triple Sec
2 oz. Mango Nectar
1/4 oz. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
Put all ingredients in a blender with lots of ice and blend. Strain into glasses.
And here is Rick's non-exact recipe for his Fondue Stuffed Mushrooms:

Bleu Cheese Crumbles
Large button mushrooms stems removed
Mix all ingredients to taste and scoop into the mushroom caps. Dip into Tempura batter and fondue in hot peanut oil until golden brown. Enjoy!
