Akastasia crafting

I am going with our youth group to another youth rally this weekend, Akastasia. Why it is called Akastasia no one of our group really knows. We will be traveling up to Omaha, NE for the weekend and in addition to normal packing I need to figure out what crafting I should take.

Youth rally's are the perfect time to get some handwork in. I usually sit in the auditorium most of the day visiting with other parents or listening to the lesson and worship. I will meet up with several friends this weekend who will bring along their handwork too, so we make a nice little sewing/crochet/knitting circle.

My plan is to take the chevron scarf that I started at the beginning of the school year. It is a beautiful scarf made with Briar Rose yarn gifted from Barb. This project was my knit in the car while waiting for kids project or in between other projects. It has seen very little knitting since September. We have the timing down pretty good now with school pick ups and haven't had any in between time.

I also thought I may take my embroidery for the advent calendar but I'm not sure I'd really work on it. Knitting is so easy to pick up and put down I'd probably just stick to it.

I bought a spaghetti squash to cook for tonight. I've never made spaghetti squash. I looks easy enough but I'd love a really good recipe. If I want the kids to jump in and love it I probably should serve more than just the squash with butter. Any recommendations?

Oh my gosh, the scarf is beautiful! The pattern you picked out is perfect with the fiber. Wow! I am impressed!
For the squash, make it like it was spaghetti. You could add some noodles and your favorite marinara sauce. We love it that way!

I love the way the scarf is knitting up!

I've always eaten spaghetti squash just with butter, but I bet there are some good recipes out there.

Beautiful scarf and would be perfect for a trip like that!

Wow, beautiful scarf! I love bringing knitting with on long trips; the portability factor is definitely handy!
Good luck with the spaghetti squash, I've never tried before, but it sounds interesting!

The scarf is beautiful!
I always make spaghetti squash like actual spaghetti, with a nice chunky meat sauce. I use the squash instead of actual pasta.

But...I betcha my comment is too late for dinner.

Love the scarf--the colors are so nice, and I always love the chevron! (I got here from Leah's blog!)

DOn't know what the youth group name stands for either. In our church, the youth group is AWANA--and I don't eeven know what THAT stands for!! The fact that they're in church and in youth groups--THAT'S the important thing. By the way, do you ever look at the ALLRECIPES site??Some good ones there.
