I’ve been baking, mostly to fill the freezer, theres only two of us here and I don’t do alot of cakes so its the best option. The last visitors we had were disgusted at the lack of cakes….they were only here one night, I didn’t think it necessary!
Nigella’s Chocolate Brownies, less Walnuts plus Macadamia and Cranberries. Dairy Free. It did cut into 21.
Green and Blacks Chocolate Beetroot Cake.
Riverford Beetroot Cake. Dairy Free.
All these because I was forced into a Sainsbury’s trip and they had 15 ungraded Free Range eggs for £2, bargain.
This has been distracting me from Spinning and most other things for a couple of weeks. Socktopus Sock Club 5th instalment. Magic Loop, can you believe it, taught myself. Also Toe Up…..using Judy’s cast on method, much easier on a circular needle than DPN’s. The beauty of the pattern will be revealed in blocking.
As its Strictly season I have to have a fairly mindless project. This year it is a Misty Scarf from Interweave Scarf Style. The yarn is Rowans Kid Classic, the darker pink was from the KGC £1 bran tub at I-Knit! Doesn’t look much but I only started this on Friday due to being in York last weekend.
I have 4 dancers in the family sweep, a certain grumpy old man doesn’t do Strictly so he spends an hour each Saturday on his own reading the newspaper! Also have a dancer in a Ravelry sweep. so am rooting for Austin Healy, Mark Foster, Andrew Castle and unrealistically Gary Rhodes.
Tomorrow we are visiting friends in Eastbourne which means a trip to Lakeland, well I am sure there is something I can’t live without.
