Shiny Sister Socks & Gratuitous Food Porn

Say that three times fast ("Shiny Sister Socks", that is. Saying "Gratuitous Food Porn" three times fast will just get you some strange looks, and possibly evicted)...


Isn't it funny how you finish the entire second sock, and those 24 stitches are just sitting there, waiting to be grafted together. And then they sit there. For two days. I got fed up of them looking at me (there were so!) and stitched the little buggers up this afternoon. And I even know how to do Kitchener Stitch without reading the instructions any more. Yeah, it took me 5 minutes. Clearly worth all that procrastination.

Dear Dotter is modelling the socks here, and they look a little big, which is a Good Thing TM, as Sister has size 8 feets, vs Dotter's size 7 feets.

Socks will be presented (only 1 month late) to my Sister next week IN PERSON (yes, she's here from London, for a whole FOUR months!).

And now - you know you want it - Gratuitous Food Porn...



I was making an Indian Chicken Pilau the other night; I like putting the spices (cumin seeds, black mustard seeds, and turmeric in this instance) in these cute little silicon pinch pots... and the sun was coming through the window, and they just looked - well, you know what I mean. I got my camera, and told the spices to 'Work with me, baby!' – Enjoy!

  5. I love the socks! And I can't wait to meet your sister. As for the spices, well, I can smell them just looking at the photo. It's a good think you can't see me drooling!
