I finished the STR mediumweight socks yesterday and gave them to my sister as a mother's day present. She loved them! The pattern didn't work out quite the way I wanted it to, so I'm counting those socks as a practice version that found a good home. On to mark 2.
I'm also almost finished with DP's orange and purple socks! I just have two more rows on each cuff and then the bind off. Hallelujah!
I'm currently trying my hand at french bread, yet again. I'm using a recipe with a lower hydration level - 60% - so we'll see how it works out. I usually feel like the crumb of my bread is too wet, no matter how long or short the cooking time is. This may remedy the situation.
