(Sorry. Stupid Jedi Mind Trick.)

I finally finished the Groovy Red Toe-Up Socks, and here is photographic proof-

They were really fun to knit, but they took forever on little size 2 needles, so my fingers are very gratified to be moving on to this Cowichan Hat!

Gauge is about 3.5 stitches to the inch, so it’s going pretty fast. And I think it’s going to be really cool (and mighty toasty)
Almost instant gratification knitting 🙂

And in non-wool news, I have to report that I have discovered the neatest kitchen gadget ever.
I think these have been around forever,, but it’s new to me, and it has pretty much transformed my relationship with apple pie.

Here is the thingee-

It peels, slices and cores, all without the use of electricity. And eliminates any chance of me maiming myself with a corer and or paring knife. It’s like magic. (I got this little gem as a Christmas gift last year, and had almost forgotten about it. Many belated thanks to Carole!)

And here is my pie. Or what’s left of it right now. Probably won’t last long.
Guess I’ll get to play with my new toy again soon.

That’s about all the excitement here.

So, I’ll sign off with a message from Boo Kitten.

      yeah, kitten is really tuned in to the comfy and toasty factors! I do really like the cowichan style sweaters, with the natural colors and the shawl collars.
