Oh sock, how I dislike you. The color is blah; the pattern is blah. But, I signed up for this challenge, and I am going to complete it. I thought these might be good socks for my granny, but I don't think they will fit her, and since I am supposed to follow the pattern I won't be changing things. At least they go fast, so if I decide to frog at the end of this I won't be too upset. Maybe Josh's mom or my small-footed co-worker will like them. This picture nicely shows my crappy short-row heel too! I hate short-row heels for some reason. Oh! I did change one thing, I knit this top-down instead of toe-up, but since the amount of stitches is the same either way, the lovely folks at SKP2008 are allowing this. I still think my grandma needs a pair of socks though. Sorry for the whining.

Since Granny won't be getting any socks, I am going to make her a birthday treat. My mom and I are visiting her Saturday so I am going to bring Snickery Squares because she loves Snickers. I think I will bake the cookie base tomorrow night and assemble Saturday morning before I leave.

I finally slept well last night and I can definitely tell a difference. I awakened easily and am not trying to nap at my desk! I didn't wake up due to coughing at all during the night. We skipped tae kwon do so we could rest and get to bed early because neither of us were feeling well and it was a good decision. I also got to make enchiladas last night which was a nice change from our usual Wednesday night salad. The salad has been pushed to tonight since they are easy to throw together after three hours of teaching tae kwon do. Though, we are changing it up and making it a taco salad rather than the usual salad with chicken. I saved a little ground turkey from the enchiladas to tacoize tonight for the salads.

Oh wow. Must. Have. Snickery. Squares.

Do you think it is a good excuse to leave work early to go get ingredients to make them?

I agree! Which is why I think it's weird that she says I have to spend 4 hours making dulce de leche. As if after 4 hours there would be any left after I keep sampling to see if it's ready yet!

Glad you're feeling better. I have to agree with you on the socks - the color looks like something my dog would hork up on the carpet. You are a peach to make Snickery squares for your Granny! Will you make me some for my birthday? :-)

I think the socks look better in person, although I do agree that it's not your style.
