Jen's Eggnog Ice Cream Recipe

2 cups eggnog

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 tsp vanilla Extract

1 tsp rum Extract

Cinnamon to taste

Nutmeg to taste

Combine eggnog and heavy cream in a large bowl.  Add extracts, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Stir until combined.  Refrigerate for 2 hours (or longer). Freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. In my Cuisinart, it takes about 20 minutes or so.

Purloining my own show notes from last year when I talked about subbing a different yarn that is not the same gauge:

How to substitute yarn of a different gauge in a pattern.  A little bit of math is involved, but it's not too difficult. Pattern gauge - 4 sts per inch Personal gauge - 4.5 - 5 sts per inch Stitches at the bust to get desired size, which in this case for me is 34: x sts/34" = 5sts/1" x = 34*5 x = 170 sts This will be the number of stitches needed across bust to get the desired 34" bust measurement. Next, look through the pattern to find which size gives that number of stitches at the bust.  Use the numbers for that size in order to get the size I want.

Offroading - flattered that the Knitmore Girls purloined this segment in their episode last week, but I'm taking it back this episode to talk about the television show that Carlos and I have been watching recently (in essence purloining the "TV" part of the TVKnittingPodcast)

Your Mileage May Vary - a new segment where I delve into some of those issues that always spur discussion among knitters.  Join us over in the Ravelry Group for further discussion about this week's topic.

This week's question is: How far would you go for a fiber-related event (whether festival, convention, or retreat)?
