Funky Footsies and King Cake

I absolutely loved taking the knitting class with my BIL and learning how to knit socks. These are the big, bulky socks on size 13 needles that are for sittin’ around feeling cozy in. The class ran 2 hours on 2 nights. Here is what I had done after my first class …

Understanding the construction of the sock, turning the heel, learning all the little tricks was so great. Plus our instructor, Marti, was fun and made everything simple. And my other classmates were a hoot. One conversation during our first class was about everyone’s favorite cuss words while knitting. I think we all laughed ’til we cried. There was a class going on in another room, but we were the rowdy bunch. This is the first knitting class I’ve ever taken and I really enjoyed the camaraderie.

So here are my completed Funky Footsies on my feet …

I love ’em, I love ’em, I love ’em!

We had a fun surprise on our doorstep yesterday …

… a FedEx package from Louisiana. YD’s BF is home visiting family this week and sent us a King Cake to celebrate Mardis Gras!

It is like a delicious giant cinnamon roll covered in icing and sugar crystals. And it came complete with Mardis Gras beads and babies. You can read about the History of Mardis Gras and King Cakes at MardisGrasDay.com. Thanks, YDBF, for a wonderful treat!!!

  1. Cool – your mardi gras beads match your socks! A giant cinnamon roll and new socks – it doesn’t get any better than that.

    • Isn’t that the truth? After watching the speed skaters on the Olympics, I want to glide up and down the hallway in my new socks! Hopefully, I’ll burn a few King Cake calories doing it. 🙂

  2. Nice socks and yummy looking King Cake! I’d never heard of King Cakes–and was just needing to find something else delicious to eat. Not!!!!

    • The socks are really cozy and warm. Every time I look at the King Cake, I gain a pound! It’s really good!!!
