I finished a pair of socks! (Rav page)

Pattern: Bellatrix(Ravelry)
Yarn: STR Lightweight in Carbon
Needles: 2.0mm nickel KP dpns
Mods: I don't think I followed the heel instruction, and I don't think I did the same number of pattern repeats as the pattern.

Started some new ones.

These are RPMs in Lotus Yarns exclusive Punk Rock Sock Club edition colorway Loose Nuts.

And now a great dessert recipe for those days you don't want to turn on the oven or give yourself food poisoning.

Unbakeable Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c unsalted butter
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar

1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda (this does affect the taste and I prefer having it in though they won' be baked)
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 tbl milk ( I am not sure I just splashed some in there until it was about a normal consistency for cookie dough at this point)
2 1/4 c flour (I like half whole wheat and half white flour)
1/4 c ground flax (optional, but I like the flavor and it's healthy!)

Cream the butter and sugars together by hand or in a mixer then add the salt, baking soda, vanilla and milk and mix well. Add the flour and combine fully.

Now for the add ins: I used Guittard semi-sweet chocolate chips which I was surprised to find at our local Cubs. Use whatever you want!

Form into a log, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze it for about and hour. Slice and enjoy!

I've never had an "ick" issue eating raw eggs in cookie dough, but I'd have issues feeding it to someone else.

hehe. At some point I might put up a picture of some knitting or something, but it's been so long since I've made anything I don't even know if it will be worth it!

Those cookies sound REALLY good.

I'm so jealous. I bought a book on sock knitting. I bought the needles. My work doesn't look really great, but not terrible for a first attempt, but I Can't Do the heel flap. I can't understand the instructions.

I laid it down and started smocking. But it makes me really mad when I can't figure something out.
