And checking in with Mr. Apollo:
I finished the Red Hot Chili Waffle socks yesterday. I’m wearing them right now! I love that colour.
I finished these socks just before we had to leave for supper with the fam. I brought a double batch of Dauphinoise Potatoes (a fancy schmancy version of scalloped potatoes, except you don’t make a bechamel sauce). They were SO good! I thought there might have been some leftovers, but they were all gobbled up. Yum! I had read some conflicting reports online at various recipe sites that sometimes the potatoes didn’t cook, etc. The secret, I think, is to make sure you slice your potatoes super-thin; you need a mandoline (this is what I have and it worked wonderfully). Oh, Ande, you could make these for pickyJim and they’re NOT scalloped potatoes.
and started a pair of socks for the big fella. I might be a little short on yardage, but if so I will find a suitable complementary yarn to finish the toes. So anyway, I cut it in half (there’s waste yarn in the middle) and got started. One simply begins to unravel the yarn from the blank, and knit that directly into the sock. It’s pretty cool. The instructions state you need to wash/block the finished socks to remove the slight kink/crimp in the yarn from being loosely knit before they apply the dye. I love the colours in this one – it’s too soon to tell how they’ll play out in the sock.
