No Macaroons For Me, Either

Filed under: Holidays,Knitting — folkcat at 4:03 pm on Friday, June 1, 2007

As much as I wanted some almond macaroons to celebrate National Macaroon Day with yesterday, I wasn’t willing to pay $4.59 for a dozen of them at the supermarket bakery. I looked around for a less expensive alternative, but was unsuccessful. So, no macaroons for me, even though they were there in the bakery. I just couldn’t justify the expense.

Reality continued to fall short of expectations the rest of the evening. Knitting Around at Panera had its largest turnout in some time – six of us attended, making a large and lively group chatting and knitting around the fireplace.

Where it fell short? I had thought I might make rapid enough progress on my second sock to perhaps even finish the pair last night, but the conversation was so good that I only made it just past the heel.


That’s okay – I have no plans today that take me away from the house, and no burning desire to work on anything but my socks. Expect a finished, modeled picture on Monday, and perhaps even a photo of Socks for Folkcat, Pair Two, Sock One (SF/P2S1) in progress!

Until then, I hope you all have a great weekend. Happy Crafting!

Great socks! I like almonds but not almond paste/marzipan so it’s coconut and chocolate macaroons for me!

Oh, I know what you mean about the price of baked stuff at the grocery. And, cookies (baked in the deli or boxed) are just outrageous. I haven’t bought my favorite cookies in over a year because I refuse to pay nearly $5.00 a box for them!

Think I’m going to start baking my own cookies!!! Probably better for me and not quite as expensive!!!!

Like the colors of the socks!!!! Hope you have fun finishing them…
