Earthbound Misfit & English Muffin Bread!

Two fun things for you today – a beautiful pattern and English Muffin Bread. First – we have been doing some Facebook Live posts on great multiple colored shawls, along with Planner Pages for the color combos that we came up with. (I am loving these multi-skein shawls, because it’s so fun to pick the colors! Of course we also did a blog post and Planner Pages for Joji’s new Mystery KAL at the end of April – be sure to check that out, too.)

Last week we talked about Barbara Benson’s amazing Earthbound Misfit shawl that combines two colors of yarn plus beads. You can get the pattern via Ravelry (find it at this link) and we picked out some stunning yarn and bead combinations, which you can find at these links: EM11, EM12, EM13, EM14, EM15, EM16, and EM17. You need 2 colors of yarn and 904 beads. We gave multiple beads options. From the Planner Page, click on Shopping List, Click on Add to Cart, and then decide which beads you want to use (about 220 beads per tube) and delete the other bead options from your cart. Be sure to share your finished photos with us – we want to see how these knit up. They all look like they will be stunning!


I have the easiest bread recipe in the world for you today, and it is delicious. It makes 4 loaves so freeze some, or share a loaf with a couple of friends. Great with soup, chili and salads, or toasted for breakfast.

Jillee’s Mom’s Wonderful English Muffin Bread (from Pinterest via onegoodthingaboutJillee)

5 1/2 cups warm water
3 packages RAPID RISE yeast
2 Tbl. salt
3 Tbl. sugar
11 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all of your ingredients together. The dough will be sticky! Spoon the dough into 4 well greased loaf pans. (Don’t worry about forming a nice little loaf. You really will be just plopping the sticky dough into the pan.)

Cover and let rise in pans until the dough reaches the top of the pan.

Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Brush the tops with butter a couple of minutes before the time is up.

Allow to cool completely before cutting. Enjoy with jelly, jam, honey, or just butter. Yum.

  1. when I saw her shawl name – I had to smile – that’s a line from a Pink Floyd song. I am enjoying the project suggestions you put up. I used some suggestions for the Joji MKAL but I have SO much yarn on hand and with Camp coming, I didn’t dare order more. I’d love to try the English muffin bread – thanks for that too ! I love the FB live posts – then I can hear your voice – Happy Friday – Mel

    1. I’m glad you’re liking the suggestions, Melody! Thanks so much for watching with us. 🙂

  2. I love homemade English muffin bread. After greasing the pan I coat it with cornmeal and also sprinkle some on the top of the loves – nothing better than a hot toasted slice. Now I’m hungry.

  3. This is our family’s favorite English Muffin bread recipe. It does so well in the Colorado altitude. We love it!

  4. I am tucking this idea away for Camp Loopy. Hopefully it will fit the requirements! I love some of the combos you came up with!
