Pattern for Socks Finished

April 24, 2010

Writing patterns can be a pain.  They take a long time.  There’s so much to consider.  You never how much or how little to enter.  But, anyway, my Girlie Socks pattern is finished and on my pages for anyone who wants to try it.

I’ve started another pair of socks.  The heel is made a little differently than normal.  It gives it a speckled look that I like.  I had a little trouble with the pattern on the instep.  Working it across 30 stitches makes for three increases and only two decreases.  So you have to get a little inventive with an extra decrease.

We went to Suicide Bridge Restaurant yesterday and the Friday buffet.  It’s impossible snot to stuff yourself.  The stemmed shrimp are perfect and I really like the way they fix the scallops.  Even the desserts are good.

Suicide Bridge Restaurant

We always try to go in April.  If we wait any longer, the placewill be filled with ACH!! tourists.  They have a great buffet on Fridays.  As usual, everything was fabulous–steamed shrimp, crab imperial, barbecued ribs, prime beef, turkey, oyster fritters, fried oysters, fried scallops, ham, raw oysters. There were king crab legs which none of us ate.   I don’t know why those things are even served around here.  Soups were asparagus and cream of crab.  They had rolls and salad fixings,even beets thatwere almost as good as Algyer’s.  We tried to eat some of everything.  Nothing came up short of our expectations.  We were stuffed, but happy.  I forgot dessert–little cheesecakes that melted in your mouth.
