Green Striped Socks

I finished these last week, but have been having trouble getting photos to upload to Flickr.

socks for me!

I used two shades of Sweet Georgia Yarns “Tough Love Sock Yarn”.  I started with three-round stripes, then two, then singles, then back up to three. The Ravelry project page is here.

There is still a hat on the needles and I’ve started another pair of socks.

We’ve been working hard at the gym and have a couple more events planned before the end of summer.  A team “mini triathlon” and then Spartan on September long weekend.

Our friends have had an abundance of zucchini and I found a recipe to make muffins with them.

The recipe took a couple of tries and some tweaks, but they’re pretty darn good!  Changes I made – the first time I tried this recipe, it was very dry, not like a muffin batter at all. So this time:

I used three eggs
I used the full ¼ c of maple syrup
I added one banana, mashed up
I used natural peanut butter, and I let it come to room temperature to make it mix better.
I used Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips (1/4 cup) and I blended them in with the zucchini.  I also increased the amount of cocoa to 1/4 cup.

I’ve made it a couple more times since then.
