Lilac socks

Stolen off Gossip in the Garden

Just finished the first project of 2012, a pair of Dead Simple Lace Socks from Socks From The Toe Up by Wendy Johnson.

I used Judy's Magic Cast-on, a short row heel, and a picot edge bind-off. All done in KnitPicks Comfy in Lilac Mist.

Yes they are loose and slouchy, but when you have self-inflating ankles that's actually a plus.

These are wear around the house socks. I admit it, I made them to match my lilac apron. Of course now I can't find the picture. Oh well.

Next up, the ever exciting dishcloth. Whee.

How to cook

I think I may make this an every Sunday thing.

Season 01, Episode 04, Southern Regional Recipes

In this episode they make Lexington style pulled pork

And Memphis Coleslaw

They also rate tabletop grills and taste test hot dogs.
