Julie hate is such a strong word.
And with me just getting into this sock gig, you should be saying Gussets grow on you, eventually, well, maybe! LOL
You guys made me hungry with all this food talk. But I have enjoyed the suggestions.
There is always Cowboy Caviar, colorful, meatless and can be eated with chips as a heavy dip or put on lettuce for a salad.

Julie would love the enchilada recipe, never made that before. Are you doing the Viking CPH or traditional? Cant wait to see your progress.

Marilynn what is Cowboy Caviar?

Marilynn, ok I dont like knitting the gussets of socks, I'd rather do a short row heel, don't much like the heel flap either for that matter...maybe I should try doing a cable on it and make it interesting. sorry for scaring you.

Cowboy cavier sounds good

Christine what size bottle do you use of the kraft dressing?

Karina I'm doing my own thing on the CPH, instead of making the cables cross every 10 rows or so I'm doing every 6. & I'm also doing the celtic cable in the middle of the back, just couldn't follow Lisa Kay's instructions because I'm not doing that size. I thought about doing the 5braid cable too, but decided to keep it with the 2 cables on the side just closer together and the celtic cable down the middle. Lisa Kay also did the celtic cable on the sleeves, but I'm not sure I'll do it on my sleeves, we'll see how burned out I am on doing that one when the time comes. I think I'll do both sleeves at the same time & the left & right front at the same time so I'm sure to get the same number of rows (for some reason I couldn't count on Mom's vest). Have you started yours yet?

Chris I keep meaning to ask you what your long acronym is for your DW.

Yes, I know i should not have started yet. promised myself to finish up some project before starting another. But it was persistently calling my name and I could not resist.

I am doing the Viking in size 44 but only cast on 100 stitches to work with the cabling. You just take two stitches off and then work out how many stitches in between the cables so you can have the 2x2 + 2 ribbing in between so mine worked out to be 14 cable stitches to start and then cable then 14 and so on.
Did take a bit of reading and rereading of the pattern though to figure it out.

I know I easily spent over an hour trying to get my cabling right on paper last night & decided to finally just do plain ribbing and then do the cable from there. Mine's k14, work chart A, k5 p2, celtic cable, p2, k5, work chart c, then k14 I only co 86.

Man o Man! Katie is crawlin like a mad woman today! I know she'll only get faster - she looks like she's a drunk crawling though, very wabbly and not in a straight line.

I just love the picture you paint of Katie crawling, brings back memories of Maisey. Give her a couple of months and she will be running everywhere.

Ok once it decides to be nice weather I'll take another mountain picture at sunset to show y'all how our Sandia mountains turn pink. But until then here's what I see when I walk outside my front door and look right (East).

And here's a picture of the kids (Jacob & Bailey) pretending to be mad.

And one of Caitlin (aka Katie) crawling

and of course some knitting... My CPH after 4" of ribbing and 1 pattern repeat, 16 rows.

Christine, that dress looks so cute!

Julie, that top is so pretty

Jackie Lim, that fingerless glove looks great

QOTD: DBF is likes most of the things I make. He never ever suggests what he wants to eat. I don't have a favorite recipe either. I like lots of things, although I love to make risotto myself.

Well, won't make a long post today, since it's already past midnight and I'm rather tired. I did enjoy my train-knitting. It makes me feel so relaxed and it makes it so much easier to leave the problems of my clients at internship. It feels rather strangs to say goodbye to all my clients. I've seen most of them improve so much and now I'm leaving, I won't hear from them anymore.

I've already got 10 cm of the first sockamania-sock done. I hope I'll be able to finish the pair before I leave for holiday, which is on 07/25. I'll try to show pictures tomorrow.

Now I'm off to bed. Goodnight!

The bottle says 475 ml but I don't know if that is going to help you in the U.S. Do you have a conversion kit anywhere?

I have the CPH on my list of things to do. I really want to make it for me! What yarn are you using? I can't use wool, so I have to be careful what I buy for this project. I want it to look nice, but be durable AND of course be RED!!!
