So after I finished those gorgeous blue No Purl Monkeys, I was flat out in a panic by not having anything on the needles. I looked at a bunch of sock yarn and couldn’t even make a decision about which to grab to start a pair. In my rummaging I came across that Zauberball Crazy sock yarn (#1702) that I’d started to make socks with back in December. It didn’t end well. They got ripped out, the yarn banished to the time-out section of my stash (yes, roommates with the accursed Paprika Classic Wool).
I retrieved the yarn and started a pair of socks (appropriately dubbed the Panic Socks) and here’s how they look today:
I’m using a 64 stitch cast on, and after 1×1 ribbing for 1.75″ I’m doing a 7×1 rib for the leg and instep. I love these colours. I love this yarn! It wasn’t you, sock yarn, it must have been me!
On the cooking front, on Friday I made this delicious Old Fashioned Beef Stew. When I looked at the link online, I had no recollection of ever making it, even though my paper copy got the “very good” notation on it and had some gravy stains. I blindly went in and made it and it was really very good. I added dumplings at the end because the big fella loves his dumplings.
For the fam Easter supper I made Dauphinoise Potatoes which were also very, very good. It’s a good thing we had a nice supper meal because all I’d eaten that day was one piece of peanut butter toast and a Lindt Gold dark chocolate easter bunny. Yummm.
No pooper pics today – how could I top Apollo’s winsomeness in the last entry?!
