So, here's the new knitting project I've started. The pattern is taken from April's Better Homes & Gardens mag, from the bonus knitting book, and it's called a 'Chincilla Tunic' which I am making for Alannah.
This will be only the second item of clothing (scarfs are accessories really - yes?) I've ever made. And I even did a test swatch this time (my mum will laugh at this :-P) and fortunately it was the right size.
I'm in love with this yarn - it's such a beautiful mix of colours and also so soft.
In other making, I've been loving quite a bit of baking this past week. There is just something so cosy, so warm, about walking into a house where baking has been going on - the smell is usually just so yummy by itself, without even taking a bite. I mean, don't get me wrong, biting into it is 'oh so good' too...
So we've had : cornish pasties, banana & choc chip loaf, slow roasted shoulder of lamb, pavlova (more on that with my Pin it! Make it! post tomorrow) and a banana & caramel cheesecake slice which has proven a hit with my boys (recipe coming later today!).
I think I'm all baked out this week!
Onto some sewing, I think...
