Blue/grey socks finished

I started the day by removing the 4 quarts of granola from the dehydrator trays and putting it away.    Now there is at least a minimal breakfast for those hot days when I won’t want to cook or for an evening meal.


Then it was off to the chiropractor.   Even though I’m done, it helps if there are two people in the car as we can use the express lane, so I went along and worked on the knitting in transit.


Besides there is a Whole Foods store there and I love looking through the store.   I find things I don’t find in other grocery stores and their produce always looks so good and fresh.


And before the day was over, these socks that I thought I was setting aside are finished.   They are done in Elann’s superwash “Sock it to me collection” style “puzzle”    I used #2 needles, cast on 64 stitches and knit 6, purl 2.

Tomorrow is my day to catch up on house cleaning and work in the hoop ouse.

    Nice socks! Do you have a special granola recipe?

      Thank you
      The granola recipe varies depending on what is in the cupboards. For 6 quarts, I start with 15 cups of oats. Then add l pkg of hemp hearts and 2/3 cup honey (about) I blend the almonds to pieces, trying to leave them large enough to see – about 1.5-2 cups. If not using cashew milk, I will add those as well. Stir all this and dehydrate for a couple days, stirring AM and PM. Then put back in bowl and (the following are all estimates as well) add 1.5 cups date pieces, 1/2 package of dried blueberries and 1/2 pkg of dried mulberries and 1.5 cups of raisins or more. I stir everything together and look at it. Sometimes I add more raisins or other dried fruit. This is all a very precise recipe as you can tell. lol Enjoy
