Finished

 
This sock was a breeze to knit (except for the toe, which I left too late to start the shaping and had to frog, silly me). As you can see, the self-striping that Lilith dyed has behaved beautifully. I was expecting something weird to happen over the instep, but no. I think she's going to be dyeing up a storm at some point, so go check out her site real soon.

I've been trying a few other things. Such as tofu. Yep, who'd believe it. I always felt it was the food of the devil, and so did Dori and Val from the More Hip than Hippie podcast until they tried it with honey and tamari. It's amazing. Well, maybe that's taking it a bit far, but it was very tasty. Basically, get some firm tofu, soak up the extra moisture then cut into cubes. Heat some olive oil in a pan and fry tofu until it is golden brown. While still in the pan on the heat, drizzle over some honey. Cook a little longer, then splash on some tamari and stir it around a bit more.

Yum

Tofu is a sponge: place it on a plate & put another plate on top of it, then something heavy on the top plate. It'll squeeze all of the moisture out of the tofu, so you can then drop it into a marinade, which it will promptly suck up. It can taste like anything, and is about the best "blank slate" there is, in cooking.

We've even made "cheesecake" from it, and nobody's been the wiser.
