This download includes the recipe for for some inspirational muffins. it is also available as part of the Jersey Shore Knits II ebook.

Lime Nut muffins are my favorite recipe from the Northwood Inn. They are very flavorful and rich, yet the tart citrus gives them a slightly tropical flavor that tastes like a summer vacation. The Lime Nut cowl features a unique spring stitch texture and tapered fit. A step by step spring stitch tutorial is included in the pattern and a video tutorial is available via youtube.
