I won't tell you how many folks have finished a complete pair of these socks in the time it's taken me to knit just one but it's a lot. I finally have a mate for my Tropical Mer-tini test knit (which is the round one Sock Madness pattern). I knit these on size 1 needles (circs for the first sock, DPNs for the second) using Koigu KPPPM in colorway P603. These were a fun adaptation of the Drunkard's Path quilt pattern and had several things that were new to me. I don't think I'd ever done the Twisted German Cast On or an afterthought heel and the gusset was pretty radical. They fit very nicely though I do like longer cuffs. It's just as well Im not competing, they'd been waiting another week for me to finish a pair.
For dinner last night I made some interesting "enchiladas". I browned 1 pound of our CSA ground beef with 1/2 cup chopped onion, 2 cloves minced garlic, 2 T cumin, 1 T chili powder and salt, to taste. In another pan I simmered 1 pound tomatillos, 1/2 cup chopped onion, 1 minced jalapenos and salt, to taste. Meanwhile the oven preheated to 400F. When the meat was cooked through and the veg was soft I used the meat to stuff corn tortillas, placed them in a pan, topped with 1 cup pepperjack and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and then poured the veg over that. Bake off at 400F for 30 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown. Avocado and lettuce completed the meal.
