I'm on to my second pair of socks. This is souvenir yarn from our Canadian trip last October. It's self-patterning yarn from Germany. I was hoping to find a Canadian yarn but our shopping time was limited to a couple of hours in St. John, New Brunswick. To my delight, my socks will look like pastel Easter eggs. To my dismay, these will probably be finished in time for Christmas. The yarn is Step 6 sport weight yarn by Austermann and it's available in the U.S. These socks will be very thick and warm so I also went up a needle size. I am loving how they're coming so far.
I've been playing around with my electric pressure cooker again. I'm trying to eat healthily but really miss desserts. This is my first attempt at converting a recipe that came with the cooker to a sugar-free/wheat-free recipe. We all enjoyed it but hubby still prefers sugar and wheat in his cheesecake. Give him a graham cracker crust and he's happy. Neither my husband, nor my son had any idea that the crust was made from almond meal and I'm not telling them unless they break out with an allergic reaction. I'm going to try it again (and again) because I'm striving for perfection. The calorie count is about the same but the carbs are waaaaay lower (like less than 8 vs. 20 or more). In knitting (and baking) practice makes perfect!
