Socks for Sale!
Yes! I finally took the pictures I wanted of my favorite new thing to make: socks! The above foot warmers are made with 100% Peruvian wool and are SUPER warm. Don’t worry about sweaty feet, though, because the wool will wick away moisture while keeping your toes warm. The ankle-high sock is $29, and the high top sock is $34. Each pair is made to order, and if you have any special requests I am happy to try and accommodate. Please specify shoe size (or foot length, from back of heel to tip of big toe) for perfect fit (or, if you’re not sure, ‘small’ ‘medium’ or ‘large’). These will be going up in my Etsy shop before the weekend is up so come check it out!
Delicious Treats Only Take 30 Minutes
I’m excited, because tonight we’re going to Brian and Tara’s house for a fire. Because I love fire so much, it doubles the fun of hanging out with friends. I am going to bring my camera and do weird things with it! I made the brownies above for the event, and because Brian and Tara are in a band called the Rattlesnakes this concoction is now called ‘Rattlesnacks’ in my mind cookbook. All you really do is add Reese’s peanut butter chips to brownie mix, but sh, don’t tell. I did these while I was simultaneously making chicken salad/chicken broth – so with a total of maybe one hour in the kitchen I managed to make lunch, a food staple and dessert in one sitting. Plus I got to wear one of my vintage aprons so… totally worth it.
Lots of bottle caps
Lots of bottle cap work yesterday, today and tomorrow. See how each of those has a little jump ring in them? Well. Each jump ring must have a hole made for it. Then the hole needs to be sealed after the ring is put in. Le sigh…
More Socks on the Way
Started this pair to fill the monotony between bottle cap batches. A typical day goes like this: come home from work (7am-4pm), throw stuff on a chair, sit on the couch, turn on the Cosmos, lean over bottle caps, every hour take a stretching, sitting up, dry time break and knit. Eat dinner at some point, bottle caps, knit, repeat.
