I thought I set up that last post to post today so I would have a post for every day but some how I botched it. Oh well, I'll just have to regale you with the flowers from my front yard, the Primavera socks in progress and the edge of a storm front moving through the other day. The hyacinths are coming up and smell heavenly. I love how one day they're just a few little bits and the next, they're a full fledged flower.
The Primavera socks (primavera means Spring appropriately enough) are moving along. I slipped them onto my foot and they feel really nice. That surprised me because the yarn is not soft but very firm. They'll probably wear like iron. Not a bad thing in a handknit sock. I'm almost finished the March socks, the ones with the stripes. I did them toe up and the cast off is too tight so I have to find a cast off that stretches more. I chose April's brown bag o'yarn and it's a skein of Tofutsies in pink/grey/beige colors. Good choice with warmer weather coming up.
Tomorrow, I'll photograph the chocolate torte so you can share it vicariously. The recipe is old. I cut it out of a magazine the first year we were married and have made it every year since 1981. I'm using some chocolate called onyx for it's heavy duty chocolate content. I think it's too bitter but Pk (and Em) love it.
