I'm currently making these. I don't know why, but ever since seeing the recipe, I can't get it out of my head. In the tradition of "the only way around it is through it," I decided to give them a go. I'll report back!
On the knitting front, I finished another row on my shawl :) The rows take me about 45 minutes, and I keep getting interrupted. Like I said, once I get to the decreasing, I'm hoping things will go smoother.
Eeep - back to my stove!
Later: if only I would have known that you're not supposed to stir praline when it's boiling - it makes the final product grainy. Flavor = good; texture = leaves something to be desired.
