But first, some knitting ART. My Mom and I did another sock class at Mobile Yarn and these were on a display table!
They even have SHRIMP! How precious is this? And who the heck spent hours knitting it? (And what do you do with it?)
Okay, if I'm going to spend hours on something, I think it'll be something to wear. So let's look at my current art project...it really looks like a sock!
Didn't realize I photographed the one mistake in my sock - I twisted a stitch or something and threw off the ribbing just a smidge.
Look at that gusset - stunning!
Gusset and heel flap - LOVE!
So knitting the foot gets a little boring, thus I took a minute to finish my sleeve. Unfortunately, I dropped a stitch on the double-pointeds and couldn't get it all the way back, so I decided to make them 3/4 length sleeves and call it done - yay! Except that I noticed the sleeve fits a lot better with a proper lace pattern...
so the other sleeve is not only full-length, but quite baggy.
Therefore I have committed to fixing the other sleeve, and have already ripped it back to the start. But that was yesterday while I was still on call. Today I'm off call and got home from work a little early, so I decided to cook dinner. Lucas and I perused the Pioneer Woman cookbook, and he settled on a salad for dinner...behold, the chicken taco salad!
Instead of cooking my own chicken, I picked up a Publix Barbeque chicken and shredded it. The avocado and roasted corn make it really delicious, but Dean added some roasted jalapenos - even better! The dressing is Ranch mixed with salsa and cilantro. (And have you ever put 3 corn cobs in a skillet on high heat? It starts making popping sounds and the kernels swell up before turning brown - I was worried one would blow off and hit me in the eye.)
And while I was in Publix I spotted the Apron booth's dessert - Greek honey yogurt with berries. Now Greek yogurt is kind of tart and unappetizing, so you have to sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of powdered sugar on it...
and let it sit for a while in the frig, then it actually does taste like a dessert. Lucas ate 2 helpings!
I'll be having it for breakfast tomorrow...and hopefully getting further along on that sock...and that sleeve!
