this weeks...

So, with a clean kitchen, one boy reading, the other two at youth group (I love youth group... for more reasons than one) I sit to blog at night. (Laundry machines and baskets are full... but who cares?)
This weeks cookie: Grandma Mollie's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Jane. I left out the raisins simply because I didn't have them. (And the walnuts simply because they don't like them.) After school, all twelve cookies from that dish were gone in a matter of minutes.
I am anxiously awaiting this weeks clue for the mystery socks. Loving this pattern.

Hope this week is going well for you.

Thanks for the ginger cookies you posted about last week. I made them that day and they were delicious. We just finished them today. Time to make more cookies!

I am anxious for the next clue too. This is my first mystery sock and I am loving it!

the nest said...

your socks are looking very nice! thursdays have new appeal, don't they? ;-)

i made last week's cookie too; thank you, they were yummy! maple syrup banana bread today - all gone! your cookies for this week look especially tempting in that dish...

Julie said...

LOVE the "cookie dish"! I'm over my head in making cookies for a family gig on Saturday. On the list... pumpkin drop cookies. I wait all year to make these, thanks for the recipe!

Kirsten said...

I'm loving the socks in gray. I may need to make another pair in a similar yarn.

Jennifer said...

Your socks are looking great, I love the colour.

Renee said...

The socks look terrific in gray.

What a great cookie dish! They look great, no wonder the cookies were gone so fast.

Suzanne said...

I'm so glad you were able to catch up on your socks. My pair has trumped my regular knitting but it's so satisfying to have socks this far along in such a short time.

Elizabeth said...

What kind of needles do you use?

MadMad said...

The socks look great! I never got around to joining... it's been such a crazy fall! On the plus side, though, I have, one year later, finally gotten close to finishing my inca marl ruffle coat you got me started on. Just have to finish that never-ending ruffle (I'm only half way) and I'll be done.

I had one of those youth group moments tonight myself, but at Connor's age they call it BLAST. I spent the hour and a half at Panera making a to do list for the last part of the week. Cookie making comes on Friday for me. Your socks are looking great!

Kat said...

The cookies sounds delicious. I have yet to try the ginger cookies from last week but they are on the to do list. I also love that grey color of your socks. Pretty!

kristina said...

Oh those cookies look and sound delicious and so perfect for this time of year. And I love the gray socks as well! K x

i have been done since saturday on the clue and waiting too!

Poshyarns said...

You seem to find the best cookie recipes. The socks are looking rather nice, love those cables.

Rose said...

Love the spider dish! The sock looks great too.

Lisa said...

I wish I could knit better. I was taught to knit with the one needle between my legs and now it is so hard to change that habit. So it is insanely slow to knit and so I stick with crochet, but man knit patterns are so much prettier!!

The cookies look fab

Christina Scovel said...

Thanks for posting the cookie recipe. I'll be testing it out!

Jane said...

see, i told you! weren't they good?

tiennie said...

I love nights like that. Contentment. Love the color and yarn you chose for the mystery socks!

I love your new header. So cute. Especially since you are wearing a knit sweater - now whether you actually knit that sweater is the question!

Philigry said...

those socks look divine. oh, and I bet I would love that new white kitchen!

The Litter Box House said...

Hey, talking about blog headers, can you give me some pointers on how to create them? I would love to update mine...

I tried once before, but couldn't figure out how to make the header clickable.

Jessica said...

I'm making some progress in my mystery sock and already thinking I'll need to make another pair, too!

Heather said...

Love the dish the cookies are in. I recently was given a handmade cookbook with lots of goodies in it that my husband's grandmother made for me when we were first married. Father in law found it in her stuff in the attic. I can't wait to start making some stuff each week for the family.

Darling 16 yr. old daughter is making pumpkin spice bread with cream cheese frosting as I comment. She was in the mood to bake, and I was in the mood for pumpkin bread. Works for us both! :)

Those socks are looking fantastic, but I can not even think about making them now. I have started on Christmas presents. I have spent the past 30 min. on the internet trying to find out how to read a cable chart in the round. Finally, I found it. Anemoon in Velvet Grapes Malabrigo (for the same one making bread) is well on the way.

I always look forward to your posts!~Jan

Alison said...

Oh yum! I don't think I've ever met an oatmeal cookie I didn't like!
I'm behind on my socks, not too far. If I can finish my sweater in anotherday or too, I may still be able to finsih my socks before the end of the month- which would be much better than last year!
Happy knitting-
ali

ELP said...

Love the socks. I started the mystery socks and did not have enough time to do the pattern well, so I am just making a great pair of orange ( halloween) socks.
I love your blog, you are one power knitter.

Leonie said...

Also loving the Mystery sock pattern. Waiting a week between clues is definitely a challenge!

Sylvia said...

Your socks are gorgeous, love the color. I'm so bummed I missed the boat on the mystery socks... again.

Grace said...

Those cookies are so on my list! Your socks are coming along beautifully.

Sorry I've been lazy about comments lately.

Alison said...

and I meant to say that I'd LOVE the apple cake recipe you mentioned the other day...!!!

Happy knitting-
ali

The cookies look great, no wonder they were all gone. I love oatmeal chocolate chip myself.

Seanna Lea said...

I love your holiday themed dish, though I would have been horribly tempted to put chocolate crinkle cookies in there (even though they remind me of Christmas and not Halloween).

Nantucket Dreams said...

looks yummy to me! im pretty sure they'd all be gone quite fast from my own kitchen too!

kim said...

What a great bowl. I love the little spiders. The color you've chosen for these socks is fab too! Have a great weekend.

Sandy said...

something about knitting and baking goes togeth so well! those cookies look perfect. jane has already tempted me to try them.

stitching under oaks said...

everything looks yummy! the mystery sock is fun for sure...although I can already see the writing on the wall...I'm going to be behind this week. I think this foot section is the longest section we've had.

Kathe Perez said...

Nice blog... I really enjoyed it. I saw your sister Anne post it on FB. I know Anne from Boulder.

Great! Love it! I'll be back.
