When last I wrote I was knitting (yes, knitting!) France Socks 2014. I finished the first sock and stopped at the toe because I could not find a darning needle to do the Kitchener. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Well . . .  actually . . .  I might have delayed the Kitchener for the kitchen. Yes, I've been cooking and baking instead of knitting. So much cooking and baking I considered (fleetingly) starting a blog about it. Anyway, today I will weave the first sock off the needles and start the second. That is first on my 2015 To Do List.

If you do not follow me on Facebook you haven't seen any part of my baking obsession. I'll leave you with this pictorial sample as I go off to enjoy this New Year's Day by knitting and eating cake.

So good to hear from you, Marilyn! You are making me wish I hadn't stopped eating wheat with all of your beautiful goodies. yum! That apple peeler is a marvel. I would want to peel apples just to watch it work. Good luck on finishing the socks. Picking them up again is the hardest part.
