A moon obi on a purple Kimono with starlight. Maybe it isn’t supposed to be starlight, but it gives the impression of one of those time-lapse photos of the night sky to me.
Very romantic and a little dreamy. I think this would be a gorgeous outfit to wear in September in prelude for the Moon festival.

Knitting Inspiration: hoods. Like, fairy tale hoods. I read somewhere that “capes are in” this year and, while I don’t give a flying fuck about that sort of thing, it does mean that suddenly all these fetching hooded capelet/shawl things are sprouting like mushrooms. (Get it? Mushrooms? Fairy rings….fairy tales? You’re right, that was a bit of a stretch.)
I’m particularly drawn to ones that are heavily textured or almost insubstantial. There was a thing with hooded scarves a few years back that I never really committed to; having seen these more voluminous alternatives, I suddenly understand why I waited. Unlike hoodies, which are ubiquitously casual to the point where I refuse to wear them, and hooded scarves, which make me think of kids who can’t be trusted to not lose individual cold weather items and are thus given a combination mittens/hood/scarf thing, these are poised somewhere between little kid make-believe and massive sophistication. I also suspect that they won’t cause hat hair, although I might have to line them to prevent unfortunate bobby pin accidents.

Got some frozen hot chocolate mix from Serendipity 3 the other week thanks to an event I attended. I went to make it and discovered that you’re supposed to add milk and ice. And I was all: ice? That means half of this is just water and fluff. No.
Instead, I substituted a bag of frozen raspberries.
People, I created a heavenly thing.
Serendipity’s mix is expensive. Unnecessarily so. Here’s what I experimented with.
Get drinking chocolate mix. Also know as European style hot chocolate. This tends to be good quality and also not Dutched. Measure out 6 ounces.
Measure 1.5 cups of milk (whatever type you enjoy, including almond, soy, etc.) If you plan to add a dash of liquor as I do, you want 1.5 cups total, so adjust as needed.
(side note: I’m trying evaporated milk next!)
2-3 cups of frozen fruit. Whatever goes well with chocolate. I find that berries and cherries are good choices. Mango may also work.
Put each ingredient in a blender in the order listed above. The blender you use needs to be strong enough to pulverize the frozen fruit. If it can make a smoothie, it can make this drink.
My blender has a smoothie setting, so I just pressed that button. You want to mix until everything is flowing smoothly but not so long that it starts to warm up. 30 - 60 seconds.
Pour out this thick mix and get a straw! It’s going to be very thick and potent and will make about 6 small servings. If you keep in the fridge it will stay cold but not frosty frozen.
(you know, I wish I had the knack for this that Thug Kitchen has.)
Hey DC *points up* You did it once and nobody died…
