A Square Post
(Don't you love when someone cares enough to find a place to hang a found mitten or glove? I came across this scene the other day . Warmed my heart knowing lots of people do this for others.) (Have you seen one lately? )
About the squares. I am knitting noro 4 inch squares right now. I want to seam and knit them into the " page 81 baby booties pattern. " I need to work on my seams. This will certainly force me to do so.
I like knitting squares. Simple. Garter. I discovered I really cannot know it is a square until I measaure it. Everytime I think it is square, it measures not so. So, I can't trust my eyes!
I will share my favorite Squares recipe:
This is a recipe from Nestle. Raspberry Chocolate Chip Squares
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup stick butter or stick margarine
2/3 C. flour
1/2 C chopped pecans
1/3 cup brown sugar
6 Tblspn softened butter
1/2 cup raspberry jam
2 Cups toll house morsels
For the crust:
Combine flour and sugar.
Cut in butter until mix is coarse crumbs
Press into bottom of greased 9x9 pan
Bake at 375 for 18 to 22 minutes
Mix flour, pecans, and brown sugar
Cut in butter until crumbly
Spread the jam over the hot crust.
Sprinkle topping over jam and
sprinkle chocolate chips over that.
Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
Great semisweet chocolate and raspberry mix of flavors.
