This should make next weeks' cooking alot faster and make alot less dishes to wash. I'm all for limiting dish washing since I do it by hand.

I emailed a bunch of women at work about the Knit-a-Square project and 6 of them answered enthusiastically and would love to knit squares with me!!! Yay for modern means of communication.
