I did it! I picked up my first sock gusset. Thanks to Arleta for telling me about Grumperina's helpful tips on picking up the gusset. Between that and my Socks Soar on 2 Circulars book I think I did it!! Now just to finish knitting the foot; stitch up the toes and cast on sock #2.
Here is a picture. It may not look a whole lot different than the last one, but trust me.. it is. The gusset is picked up for goodness sakes!! I hope to have this sock finished by Monday. That is my goal. (It would be sooner but work is REALLY cutting into my knitting time!!!)
Went downstairs the other night to watch '24' with Steve and Kirstin and this is what I found. They each had a spoon and were dipping into my bowl of Monster Cookie dough.
They cannot be trusted!!
And now for my cooking. Can you say "disaster"?
I decided to make some yummy bran muffins (because they are good for you and all) and disobeyed the #1 cooking rule that I learned in 7th grade: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS BEFORE YOU BEGIN COOKING. This really is good advice. I started the recipe and kept coming to ingredients that I didn't have. I started the substitution game. One substitution in a recipe you can usually get away with. Two, sometimes.... But by the 4th substitution I knew I was in trouble. Even sprinkling extra sugar on the top before baking couldn't save these muffins. They tasted like, well, llama food. So, out to the barn I go....
(Ok, not really. They ended up in the trash!)
Maybe I'll grab a spoon and join Steve and Kirstin!
Until next time...
