I finished the test knit socks I was working on and I love them! They are gorgeous! It’s a great pattern and one you will definitely want to knit when it’s available.
I can’t say enough good things about how these turned out. It was great to watch them grow – especially the calf shaping. Once I get Matt to take pictures for me for Julia, I’ll share some better ones, especially of the back, and do the FO report.
Since I’ve finished the socks, I have been working on other things. Two Christmas presents, ripped back on the Gable sweater (haven’t restarted), and a hat going to a friend.
Other than knitting, I’ve been attempting to re-create this chocolate chip pie:
So far, I’ve done one that was basically chocolate chip cookie dough in a crust, which was really close, but not quite right. Then I tried chess pie (from the Joy of Cooking), with chocolate chips on the bottom, but I didn’t cool it (recipe didn’t say to) before pouring it over the chocolate chips. It was… nothing at all what I expected. It was almost like pecan pie with chocolate chips instead of pecans. Tasted a bit like caramel, but so sweet, I thought my teeth were falling out while eating it. I was given another chess pie recipe (slightly different) to try and we’ll see how that one goes! I know I could just ask for the recipe, but what fun in there is that?
