Wow it's been a week since I've posted. Well let's see what has happened? OK ONE SOCK,
that's it
One Sock Wanna see??
This was done in Cascade Fixation, hot pink and black! It's cool baby, coooool. The black really makes the hot pink POP!! I was going to start on the second sock today. I every intention of doing it, honestly!! But... I left my knitting needle for this sock at Gina's house last night. She had her 3rd annual Holiday party (1st one for me, so it's the only one that counts, tee hee) I really had a wonderful time. I ended up getting the gift that Sarah brought, I got a yarn cutter pendant, some hot pink yarn (gee I'm starting to sound like Gina with all this pink), and 2 skeins of Araucania Yarn. Yummy, let me get a picture :)

Jealous? OH but yeah, I was going to start the sock today and like I said I left my knitting needles there and so I called Gina. She said Ericka would bring them to me at "knitting practice" so I can only assume they will be held ransom for a certian boozy recipe that Ericka's been asking for.....
Anyway, the party was fun and the food was great and the company of other knitters and crocheters, the best NH could possibly offer I'm sure!! It was grand! I'm so happy I've found this group of people. I'd be lost and loney here in NH if I didn't find them! Thanks to Gina for hosting, it was wonderful meeting Ian and Timmy and seeing Ben again! :)
After Christmas I plan on starting some mittens.... THESE mittens Jackie and I, I believe, are going to knit these together as a knit-a-long for fun, so anyone else who wants to knit mittens with us we'll be doing this sometime in January! Nothing official, just for fun and the prize is YOU finishing your mittens for yourself :) haha

So anyway.... Ericka, if your reading.... GIVE UP THE NEEDLES! Here's the recipe.

Tequila Balls
1 box vanilla wafers
8 oz. almonds
4 oz. white chocolate
1/4 cup marmalade
1/4 cup tequila
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
Process wafers and almonds until crushed very fine. Melt chocolate.
Mix marmalade, tequila, lime juice, and corn syrup. Blend until smooth. Add dry mixture and chocolate. Mix well, into stiff dough.
Roll into balls and roll balls in sugar. Store in refrigerator.

Yipee! Those are some HOT socks! I hope your ransom is sufficient to earn you back those needles! LOL
