Pink Packages

Sitting in school today, eating my lunch in the staff room, the secretary gave me a message that a Pink Package was waiting for me in her office. Now as many of you will know, Pink Packages can only mean one thing. Posh Yarn. I have never moved so fast in my life. I doubt Lynford Christie ever moved that fast. And look what was waiting for me. This was a present from Dee as a thank-you for a couple of cakes I made for her. Very simple, unexciting cakes but gluten free as the poor woman can't tolerate the stuff. I have definitely come out the winner here! Gorgeous and beautiful, soft wonderful Lucia. I am in love!

If anyone else out there is gluten-intolerant, let me know and I'll give you a recipe. The secret is in the mixture of flours! Now does anyone out there know the secret of making 24 hours last for 36?

Aww honey, you're welcome. But if you do make a shawl with it (make a shawl! make a shawl!) don't forget to alternate skeins, rather than using them one at a time. There's quite a difference even with dyelots with colourways like this, as you can see.

Shawl! Shawl! Shawl!

I would love a gluten free cake recipe. A really close friend has just been diagnosed and I'm always a little stuck for pudding ideas when he comes round. Thanks! (lucy @ rcharnock . co . uk)

Lovely yarn - I'm not suprised that you sprinted to grab the package. I hope no-one saw you though, it's school sports day season and now you'll be sure to get roped in for the adult races!

Hiya,
I have a friend over from america and she's recently been diagnosed as gluten intolerant and is missing having cakes. If you could sent me a recipe I'd be incredibly grateful.
