nine to five, chocolate balls!

May 25, 2010

After working on them for about two months, my nine-to-five socks are done. They took a long time because I just can’t knit basic socks very quickly. I seem to be able to knit lace faster, maybe because there is clear proof of progress when you see that you’ve finished a repeat, with a pattern like the twisted rib, I knit and knit and never felt like I was closer to done. I’m glad they are finished. I love the yarn color, it’s a brilliant, vivid red. I tried to take an accurate photo of the color, but my camera is dumb. I tried to fix it in Photoshop, but I just ended up with a strange neon red.

Also, Bakerella is a genius. I followed the recipe for red velvet cake balls and they were out of this world. They are too sweet for me, but I have very sensitive sweet receptors. I made about 60, we kept some and I took the rest into work. They were a hit. I think that with practice, I could get much prettier results. Thank you Bakerella! for such a great idea.

They changed my hours in the middle of the week, so I close tonight. I’m lucky that Zach is off from school or else who knows who would pick natalie up from preschool. I hope I get a regular schedule before he goes back to classes.

Zach currently has a 3.8 GPA and perfect attendance. Way to go!
