I took a break from knitting the Lush skirt - I have now past the lovely row of k2tog and am half way to the next row of k2tog - and am making a pair of mittens. I have completed one and have done the first round of the second. I will post a link to the pattern, I got it from Ravelry. It's done on DPN's so no sewing the seams together.
Mary-Jane does not seem to be any worse today with the cold I may have passed on to her. In fact she seems a bit better than yesterday. Hurrah for the calpol, if that is what did the trick. Here is a close up!
Which leads me to think about carrots and potatoes. Last time I went to Fobbles last thursday, to collect my Knit Magazine, I got some tatties and carrots. I had some carrots for my tea last night and tonight and the tatties we had tonight. Well, very nice they were. I shall get some more when I go again. I might even make enquiries if there are any local farm shops where I can get fruit and veg.
I've continued to trawl through the hairy bikers Simply Pies book and continue to be inspired to make pies. I now have two lists - one of pies I'd like to make and the other is my weekly shopping list, with things on to make at least two pies. I shall do a third list for sweet pies. Told you my head is trying to whirr but my body ain't - at the moment anyway!
