Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

The end of Orange
Well, not the end of The color orange in general. That would be sad. I like orange. Still, as far as Project spectrum goes, this is the end. The next post will be in the month of Green. And that's not sad. My love afair with green is huge.
In honor of Project Spectrum Orange and Yellow month I've made orange muffins.Ok, ok, so it was just a coincidence that the muffins are orange. And well, they're orange-ish in color but not in taste. They're pumpkin but not really pumpkiny if that makes sense. They're also really healthy.
They taste good, really they do. The kid ate 2 of them for breakfast. You know they can't be all that bad. Look:
Don't they look good?
They came out really light and airy too. Lots of whole wheat things are flat and heavy, these are so not that muffin. I'm thinking I might use this recipe with the pumpkin and add fruit as well since they're so fluffy and do not have a strong pumpkin flavor.
Makes 6 large size muffins or 12 small ones
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2 cups of whole wheat flour
3/4 cup of sugar
3 tsp - Baking Powder
3 shakes of salt
4 shakes of cinnamon
3 shakes of nutmeg
2 shakes of ginger
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup of pumpkin
1/2 cup water
Mix all the wet ingredients together and then add in all the dry ingredients.
Mix and fill in the greased muffin cups.
Bake 20-30 minutes.
If you've made it this far then you get to know about a new spinalong. Wendy of Progressive Purls emailed me about it and I think it sounds like fun. Spectrum Spinalong sounds like fun. Everyone spinning the same colors but not necessarily the same yarn. It should be really interesting. If I weren't so darn busy right now I would be joining up. But you can bet I'll keep checking in to see the great yarns.
