So far I have finished one sock. I went wrong somewhere, because I ended up with 11 stitches around at the end instead of 12 but I'm not sure that's going to kill the sock. It looks pretty good - and it's definitely sock-shaped, which is a huge plus!
I tried knitting socks years ago. A friend offered to teach me but after 3-4 months of getting 2 inches done and then giving up, she wanted her circular needles back and I was okay with that. Very sweetly she finished the project for me and even made the match to give to me! However, I was certain I was done with socks forever. Until I found a crochet pattern. I hated knitting with circular needles, and while I might like it better now, I don't have circular needles. So to be able to crochet a sock instead of knit it was pretty exciting.
However, before you undertake this project, be warned: It took me at least 6 hours to make this one sock. I'm hoping the next will be quicker, but if you are not an expert crocheter (as I am not), you must have patience!
Love and Socks,

I didn't have an 8" square pan, so I made them in my pretty red 9" stoneware pie pan. If anything, they tasted that much better because they were made in such a beautiful pan.
And I didn't have any nuts around the house, and they're too expensive when we don't really like them that much anyway, so I skipped those. But it turned out okay, because then my friend who has every known allergy under the sun could eat them. However, I could understand why one would want a layer of crunchy, protein-filled nuts.
As usual, I ate them before I got any pictures, so rather than post a picture of a beautiful-yet-depressingly-empty pan, go make your own. They are worth every single calorie. Unless you're on a diet where you're trying to lose a lot of weight. But still.
Love and Caramel,
