The Flame's away this week and I'm eating my way through an odd assortment of leftovers and leftover ingredients.

My food for the week will involve :

a lot of carrots
roasted chicken
braised beef from mum (just need to find some rice noodles to go with this)
3 slices of bacon (never did make that bacon/green onion corn bread to go with the chili)
green onions (see above)

Thankfully I am going for dinner with my parents on Tuesday and I have a BBQ to plan for Saturday.

Knitting? Ha! It's all stealth knitting at this point and I'm having stealthy gauge issues. Wait, I did finish some things.

Project specs : Kiera's bonnet, Dale Book No.142 pattern #8

Yarn : Dale Stork, Pastel Pink #8

Needles : Very, very old UK 13 Aeros (2.25mm)

Started : I bought the yarn when I went to Portland in December and I started the bonnet fairly soon thereafter.
Finished : May 13, 2007 (Just in time!)

This next project is an old UFO. I bought the yarn at Madrona last year and promptly cast on. The sock languished until I decided that they would look better on Lara's feet. Zoom, zoom, zoom. Mazda has nothing on socks knit with thicker yarn.

Project specs : Lara socks, standard top-down sock on 48 stitches

Yarn : Fancy Image Yarn, Spring Garden

Needles : 3.25mm Brittany Birch dpns

Started : February 2006
Finished : May 18, 2007

I don't think I could wear these socks inside of shoes but they would be wonderful around the house.

What a cute little bonnet, and Lara's feet will be very happy. Your little niece is a sweetheart and your nephew grows more handsome by the day.

Yay! Socks for meeeeeee! Holy crap girl. I didn't realize how long those things have been on the needles.
May I be of assistance with the gauge issues? I suspect I am the cause.
Or is the other thing the cause? I'll be happier if it's not my fault.

Uhh, is your stealth knitting a book? Or is it in support of someone else's? Curious knitters want to know!

I've got a drawerful of socks that are too thick to wear with any of my shoes. I've been trying to concentrate my sock knitting lately on finer gauges and my shoe purchases on shoes that actually accommodate all these socks I've knitted! :)

I'm back! Just popping in to say hello!

Did you get your silk samples in the mail yet? If not they must have disappeared into the same customs area that the fleece samples ended up in that last time!
