WOWW (or Thursday...)

Late, I'm afraid - but I wanted to show you the finished sock...


I'm up to (or should it be down to) the heel of the second one, so I should soon have a nice new pair of socks!!

I've been baking today.  Some cupcakes...


... and a chocolate cake that's not finished yet.  I know the cupcakes are OK, but the chocolate cake didn't rise much, so I wonder if I've left out some vital ingredient!  Ah well...

On with the ironing now...

The raising agent perhaps? I have done that especially in France where I never quite got to grips with the flours and used plain for everything adding baking powder when I wanted self raising! Sock/s look cosy and warm.

I echo Marigold Jam...French flour needed a boost!

Mmm - just had the feeling I could smell those cupcakes - silly I know! I bet those socks will be so cosy and comfortable. x Jo

Beautiful socks! And the muffins. We made some in school today. Yummm!

You have been busy Penny, the sock is lovely. I'm not going to look at the cupcakes because I'm dieting now and don't want to lose the momentum.
Thanks for your email, I'm sorry that I've not replied yet but glad to hear that all is well with you!
Big hugs, sharon in Spain xx

OK I'll include Spanish flour in the category too what they used to sell at least . They have been selling a better self-raising recently and seems to have more boost to it.
That sock looks decidedly warm....nice!


keep well
