This Week I’m Loving …

It’s been a while since I shared some of my favourite finds, so here goes with a quick round up of what I’ve found this week.

Starting with crochet: Take a look at this gorgeous granny Square jacket, I think the pattern is in Spanish, but fairly easy to see how it’s constructed. I’m tempted to track down the pattern, or have  a go with some of my stash yarns.

Tuesday nights in this house mean “Great British Bake Off night” last week I loved Jo’s macaroon recipes, which you can find here. More fab recipes on her blog too.

Up at the allotment, we’ve picked the last of the tomatoes and the peas, but the kale and leeks are doing well, promising lots of fresh veg through the winter.

Most of all this week, I’ve loved meeting so many Baking and Making readers at the Old Maiden Aunt Trunk show hosted by Fibre and Clay in Knutsford. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has gone home to some serious yarn fondling, I’d love to know what you make with your purchases!

Enjoy your week.

  2. It is Spanish (I’m the proud possessor of ‘o’ level Spanish!). I missed the Great British Bake Off last week – and I’ll miss it again tomorrow! I’ve just scrolled back up to lust after the beautiful yarns again!!

  • Borage flowers. The leaves & stalks make a brilliant plant food, the flowers are edible - but I grow it because it's just so pretty - & the bees love it.
#girlgardener #mygardenrightnow #permaculture #herbs Away with the fairies! Lovely wander around Stonyford Cottage gardens today. Lots of inspiration. Finished a new shawl. Far too hot to wear it, but luckily my shed is a great backdrop! Yarn is King Cole Riot.

I'm looking after my neighhour's garden & boy does he have a lot of radishes just now! I have written a blog post about more of my favourite (almost) free foods. Link in profile, now I'm off to pickle these radishes.

#mygardenrightnow #girlgardener #girlsthatgarden #permaculture #growyourown #ediblegarden #bakingandmaking #slowliving #organicgardening I do love a formal garden. I walk through this one every Friday on my way to knit group.  Castle Park is a hidden gem.
