Ready, Steady, GO!

Today I am all bouncey and excited, but I am not telling you why. My camera is being charged as I type. Come back tomorrow.

In other news, I have decided to join the Jaywalkers Sock knitalong. The pattern did say it was easy enough for a beginner so I think that will be the plan, as soon as I finish that first pair of socks I already started. I have a bad habit of starting projects and then getting about an inch in and moving on to something else. I am trying to improve this behavior by using the rule, "if I start it, I have to finish it."

I have also been struggling with the hat I am working on right now. Yes, the Noro Silk Garden one. I am using a pattern of pretty much my own design. I took some basic formatting and gauge ideas from hats I have done previously but this one is my own cobbled together cable pattern. Well, my own in that I own the book I took the cable patterns from. Regardless, It's not going as smoothly as I would like. The differing gauge of the silk garden is starting to piss me off a bit. Usually when I am in the middle of a cable. I am trying to use the Cabling without a cable needle method, and sometimes I can, and sometimes I sigh and use the damn needle.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have enough on it done to give a progess report picture without people wondering why I am posting the same picture from the other day.

Side Notes:

Congrats to Cari at Dogs Steal Yarn (see sidebar for link) as she just announced on her blog today she is expecting.

Does anyone have a good recipe for Hot & Sour soup they could mail me? I love the stuff. Even though I have to pick out all the mushrooms because I hate them. I am hoping that by making it myself I can just leave them out.

And what about Indian recipes? Anyone? Nan bread and some of that minty sauce.. YUM! Shmoo took me to a lovely Indian place for my birthday in White Oak. Bombay I think it was called. The service was good, the food was great, and their prices didn't make my have a stroke right there in front of everyone. (I am cheap!) Lamb Vindaloo for the win people. I need recipes to try and make this stuff at home!!!
