Ok, so I'm not quite done with them, but I was ready to make a new entry, and plan on finishing them tonight/tomorrow. Probably tomorrow. I have to go to some training in OKC on sexual harrassment, so I plan to knit through it.
I made these socks for my husband's 93-year old grandmother who is in the hospital right now. They're shortie socks with 2x2 ribbing. I didn't follow any pattern, exactly, just used the basic 64-stitch sock. They're made from Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino, and they are soooo soft. The ribbing just makes them even softer and squishier.
The yarn was wonderful to work with. It's smooth and glossy and slide through your fingers. The socks have this incredible sheen and stitch definition. They're really lovely socks.
The other day my business partner Eric and I made some basic marinara sauce. I so hate cooking, but Eric had made it over the weekend and was raving about it, so we made some. Actually, he made it and I supervised. And drank wine.
So it starts out in this big pot, then goes into the blender. And now I have plenty in my freezer to be used later. It tastes a lot better than jar sauce.
After several days of rainy weather, which I personally love, the sun came out today and the sky was blue and full of wispy clouds.
My dog Elly sure was enjoying it. This is her pensive look.
