Progress and pudding

Progress on the tug boat socks has been slow, but oh my goodness, I am so loving these socks. Look at that heel - I love that heel so much! I want to do all my heels like that from now on. I won't because it took ages, but I'd like to!

The second Dog-Walking Hermione sock was finished. I will go back to that pattern time and again. It was a delight to knit - so easy and so effective. Anyone else done one? I have started on a second pattern by the same designer - Erica Leuder - Snape's Stockings in an incredibly acidic green Tosh Sock. I'm only on the rib so far and while the yarn is OK, it hasn't had the same impact that Posh Martha has. Love Posh Martha. Really really love her. Though not in a lesbian kind of way (wasn't it Bridget Jones who said that?) (one of my literary heroines!)

Here was the Mother's Day pudding. Chocolate mousse cake heavily laced with Baileys and decorated with Cadbury's Caramel button things, white chocolate and strawberries just to be healthy! Yum, yum and yum again! Would you like some? Well sorry, but you're too late. We ate it all!

Look at the little boats! And the cables! Sigh.

I have indeed made Hermiones - I thought it was a fab pattern too, and so far has been the most hardwearing sock I've knitted.

I can see why you are enjoying those lovely socks so much - just your cup of tea!

Wow! I don't know which looks better - the socks or the pudding! I am not gong to allow myself to go look at that sock pattern on Ravelry for fear I will cast on, paying scant attention to the fact I am a total failure at knitting intarsia.

Pretty please can you share the recipe for that yummy-sounding chocolate mousse cake laced with Bailey's? I'm knitting a third pair of Giottos at the moment but suspect Hermione's will be next. Love all the details on the tug boat socks - too gorgeous!

I am so in awe of those socks - they are gorgeous!!

I also have pudding envy. Mr Waitrose provided mine this year and although yummy it was nowhere near as naughty looking as yours!
