So, when last I posted, I was kvetching about not having enough time to do everything, and I made a list of what I wanted to do. While I did not make blueberry cake with peanut butter frosting (but I will, don’t worry), I did get a new job, move to a new city, and knit a pair of socks.
Not bad, right?
So, look at the socks while I fill you in on the deets:
The pattern is Treetop Socks from Knitty. I am now really quite down with O.P.P. (yeah you know me). I substituted Koigu Kersti for recommended fingering weight yarn and knit the smallest size, though my foot is about a 9.25″ circumference. The substitution worked out pretty well, I ignored a few rows at the cuff, and knit the heels and toes differently than written, but that was it for changes.
The yarn was very difficult to photograph. The color is more of a mid bottle green- sort of a dirty moss color. In my opinion, it is beautiful, and very 1950′s. Which is great, because our new abode happens to be a pretty excellent example of Modern Architecture. Our mid-modern furniture feels right at home, and we feel pretty happy about the move ourselves.
To celebrate our move to Baltimore I baked the always much appreciated donut muffins. This time I filled them with black raspberry jam. I was thinking that peach butter would taste great with these, but the only recipes I could come up with were for a peach jam spread, which is not at all what I want. I was imagining more of a proper butter- sweet, with bits of peach in it. Any ideas?
