Pizza, Knitting, and some pictures!

I have just cooked a delicious pizza (3rd go and it's still amazing!)

I highly recommend this recipe for crust. It's yeast free, but that is because I have no yeast in the house... but it tastes just fine and no need to rise!
I make it with chicken, artichoke hearts, cheese, and ranch instead of regular sauce. This latest version was made without cheese, since I don't have any of that at the moment, either. It's a sad kitchen I keep... though when your kitchen looks something like this:

You should be amazed that I didn't just call Pizza Hut! Incidentally, the roommate had some friends over to party before driving to Leavenworth for Oktoberfest.

Oh, and you want to see what I've been knitting on and telling you about? I now present, pictures of CraftyCoug's knitting!

The lovely Summer Daze from tofutsies Sock Club (August installment). There isn't a shot of the completed project as I forgot to take one before gifting them to my best friend

Panda Cotton socks for another good friend in Nasturtiums

And the Endpaper Mitts - I love how they're turning out! I just wish they would knit themselves while I worked on all of these other projects!

A pictureless knitting blog?

I thought it would be nice to update my loyal blog readers (do I have any yet...) as to why I have no pictures. I don't have that fancy cable that connects my camera to my computer. Last time I visited my parents I left it there.

That being said - I will have it in my hot little hands tomorrow! Theoretically that means I'll post pictures. But I should also warn you that I have a bad track record for connecting my camera to my computer. I hope that this will help me do it...

I can also update you on my current projects:
-Socks for my good friend Amy
I'm about 4" into the foot of the 1st one - she wears size 12 and they are toe up, so I really haven't accomplished much...
-Eunny Jang's Endpaper Mitts
I'm 2 pattern repeats into the cuff of the 1st, which leaves 1 repeat, the thumb gusset, 1 more pattern repeat for the hand and then ribbing for the thumb and fingers. And then I have to do the other one. Fortunately they go rather quickly, especially considering all of the color changes!

Future project:
-Fiddlesticks socks
Tofutsie Sock Club 3rd installment is a lime and black colorway that I liked better in the tiny picture than in the ball, but am excited to see how it knits up because green is my 2nd fave color! (Pink will remain my fave for the time being)

Now I'm off to pack for the weekend and clean my fishies
