first sock done

Finished the first one. I made some mistakes but it doesn’t look too bad for a first sock.



learn to knit socks (read all 4 entries…)
change of plans

I never did take that third class. The other day I decided to try again with the very pink learn to knit socks pattern. You make the socks on bigger (worsted weight) yarn & bigger needles so it knits up quick. I’m already further than I am on the other socks. The pattern came with a bunch of tutorial videos which have helped a lot.



try an elvis sandwich
Untitled

Banana, peanut butter, & bacon on Hawaiian sweet bread grilled in bacon grease. I didn’t even know cooking things other than bacon in bacon grease was in the realm of possibilities till someone on True Blood asked if the pancakes were cooked in bacon grease. I can’t remember how I heard about this sandwich but I’ve been wanting to try one ever since. Definitely worth it.
