First pair for Summer of Socks and Z couldn't be happier.

  • Yarn - KnitPicks Dancing
  • Needles - Size 2
  • Pattern - Yankee Knitters Classic Socks - my standard

Love the banded toe and 3x1 ribbing. When joining the round cast on an extra stitch at the end and slipped it to the front. On the first round knit the first and last stitches together. No gap. Also held the loose end with the live yarn (like knitting double strand) while knitting the first 7 stitches. Magical. No end to sew in!

Cast on another pair in the Koigu leftovers from Suzanna's beret. Would have had a progress shot on those but bust a needle on the flight home from Chicago today.
Progress = not much with only 3 needles.

The real news is that I got my invitation to Ravelry! Who else is in?
"Gimme some sugar. I am your neighbor!"

Active utilization of produce mode.
Eggplant - sliced.

Eggs - mixed

Slices dipped in egg then mixture of 1/2 Panko and 1/2 Parmesan.

Bake at 425 Fahrenheit for 20 min flipping halfway through. Dip em in marinara and gobble em up. I heart the Petit Appetit Cookbook.

Thanks for the tip, it prompted me to request that book from the library, we can always use food ideas for challenging eaters.

And cute socks!

Sorry - I hit the delete button - my brain is scrambled.

I was just reading your blog randomly on Virtual Vacation Swap .... great socks! And that eggplant looks sooo delicious.

Oh good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who *just* finished their first pair of SOS socks. Yours look great!

Also, thanks for the add on Ravelry. Fun place, huh?

Glorious socks...I am going to show up on your doorstep one day and make you help me knit socks...with donuts as a bribe of course!

Wow...food so easy to make even a kid could do it! Did you grow the eggplant yourself?
