So , this time it was pin stripes sock i was working on . Very fun pattern , super easy , i didn’t even need a paper to keep track which row which . If you’re like me , a toe up person , this pattern is def can be converted into toe up sock . The pattern is cuff down , but ever since i used the circular with magic loop , i haven’t got the desire to go back to cuff down sock .
So after finishing my Socks on a plane , toe up socks , i couldn’t wait to get my hands on my own handdyed yarn !! That weekend , we went to my favorite LYS and i asked the owner if i could cake the yarn i dyed on her ‘ carousel o fun’ she obviously said yes . I’ve spent so much money in that shop since i learned how to knit socks !
My next project was not for myself . I wanted to make socks for my mother in law . She has 6.5 size foot , so only about half different than mine . I decided to make her ankle sock because that’s all she wears . She likes ankle sock , she likes purple , lavender , blue ,pink , and hates brown . So my choice of yarn landed on Regia Yarn , Design Line . It has purple , lavender , turqoise color and light green . It’s pretty cool color . The yarn comes in 50 grams skein , so i bought 2 , though i know i will have plenty since this will be ankle sock !
Next on my list for sock project was called Swirl E Sock , the pattern that was also found on ravelry website . I bought this particular yarn from Ipurl , the local yarn store that is closest to my house . It’s a very tiny yarn store but they do carry quite a bit selection of sock yarn , that’s where i first saw Opal yarn . I heard so much about Opal yarn from being a member of a sock community on facebook .
I started my next pair of sock , and it is from a pattern in sock a la carte book , called Welt . It looks so complicated from the picture in the book but actually it wasn’t that complicated . I chose a yarn that is plain , not self striping yarn or multicolor yarn , just because i want the stitches to show , to pop , and with self striping or multi color , i don’t think it would do .
Lately i have been a fan of a quick easy and last forever meal .. I just hardly had the time to spend in the kitchen with running around here and there , and homeschooling , and the new hobby of mine of knitting . The kitchen took a step back , but that doesn’t mean i can forgo my family’s meal . I still am a make from scratch kind of a girl , but i love how easy some meal can be prepared but it still delicious and nutritious . Not that this recipe is very healthy for you .. since it has pop / soda in it .
The other day i was invited to a friend’s house for a breakfast . She made us breakfast burrito , which was very yummy . I never had breakfast burrito , but as the name calls , it contains tortilla shell ,with scrambled eggs , potatoes , chorizo and salsa . It was delicious . So this morning i thought i should give it a try , beside my family loves chorizo . It turns out really good , not to mention it’s so easy , barely anything to it . The chorizo gives out all the flavor you need so you don’t even need to add any more seasoning .
Right after i finished my 1st sock project , i chose another yarn and i started getting busy knitting it . My choice this time landed on Plymouth Happy Feet yarn , in t he beginning i wasn’t quite sure if this amount of yarn is going to be enough , a newbie that i am , worrying such things . Well the yarn was almost 400 yards , which is plenty for a normal size foot , unless i have a size 11 foot then i probably won’t have enough LOL .
I’ve made Madeleines few times before . And i remember the very first time i was skimping on buttering the mold and ended up ruining madeleines . But they all turned out nice as far as i can remember .
This was our dinner last night .I think i’ve made them few times already , just forgot to blog about it . Although i don’t know how i forgot .. because this meal is totally awesome . Months back i borrowed a cooking book by Nigella Lawson from the library . She used to have a show on the cooking channel and i used to watch her show .
