Or, potentially, both, which is even better!

The pesto is colorful, and it’s in single-serving ice-cube format. How cute!

The knitting has come down to socks, socks, socks and more socks.

The socks are even more colorful! They’re very pretty and one of them is even the product of my own hand-dye.

I’m probably going to rip back the hand-dyed version, though, because I want to put together another pattern with the forked heel in several different sizes. The issue at hand is how to do the ribbing so that the sock pattern itself is a worthwhile contribution to any sock knitter’s repertoire, rather than merely a vehicle for the forked heel. Chemgrrl suggested a column of 3×1 interspersed with 3 columns of 1×1. What do you think?

    I think that’s a great idea!

    I love pesto cubes! I love your indigo socks! I don’t feel qualified to weigh in on the ribbing, but if chemgrrl said to do it I say it’s a good idea!

    3×1, 1×1, drink enough wine and no one will care!
    But, on a serious note, can’t you stop being a perfectionist for just a few minutes? Seriously, you make us stay-at-home moms look bad. There you are, a grad student, knitting away on patterns, learning Latin by the hour AND FREEZING PESTO? Why are you cooking with real food? You’re a student for God’s sake! You’re supposed to be eating Ramen noodles and spaghetti with butter!! Now get back to wishing you could afford lettuce and stop making me look bad!
