Well I've just heard that today is Yorkshire Day. I was born in Yorkshire so I would like to wish all fellow Yorkshire Roses a very happy day. Wonder what we should all be doing. Any ideas?
I've had a busy couple of days at mum and dad's. Shopping, knitting and eating. Perfect! I have at long last finished Trudie - what do you think? It is so comfy (oh how I love that Hipknits silk) and swishy. I changed the top band slightly to an i-cord bind off and used buttons instead of long wavy ties (too reminiscent of the 80's for my liking).
I also finished the scarf from the yarn mum bought me from Norway. It's silk and alpaca and is gorgeously soft and luxurious. Pattern based on the scarf from the Interweave book, but shorter and heart-shaped buttons added, which clink along when you walk. I also added a little slit so you can push one end of the scarf through so as not to end up with a big knot. (Someone remind me to get my hair cut please!)
I've also been having a go at knitting some food from this book.
Poached egg on toast anyone?
Or maybe you'd rather have a cheese, lettuce and tomato sandwich?
And for pudding, how about a Bakewell tart, lemon curd tart or slice of Swiss roll?
