First up is the completion of a pair of socks.
Need A Sock? book. Sock number two was finished Saturday. Knit with Briggs & Little Tuffy, my favourite 'big sock' yarn. At 44 stitches on a 3.25 needle, they will fit a largish lady's or smallish man's foot. Not destined for any person in particular, they will go in my gift-to-be basket.
Much more beautiful than the practical socks is
Finished and awaiting blocking, it is gorgeous. I managed 82 wedges before burn out. There was a shortage of the brown Malabrigo but still I probably could have squeezed one more wedge. The fingers are itching to start something new, so 82 it is. Laurie M of Issues with Knitting told me a while back that the first yarn to end would be the Malabrigo. To compensate for this, Laurie has knit the pattern with ten instead of twelve edge stitches. Saving two stitches on each wedge, should give enough plain yarn to do all 86 wedges. Smart knitter that Laurie. That's a tip I will remember should I ever decided to knit another.
Success number three is my strawberry cake. Fred suggested we try the jiggle cake - cakello - of Friday's blog post before we served it to our guests. Bleh! Yuk! Eight point five times too much gelatin powder does indeed make a difference. Into the garbage it went and off to the grocery store I went. Cake number two.
