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!!

  • Needle felting beards on these fellas - life as crochet designer is never dull!!! Pattern is one of my early ones,  loosely based on Alan Dart's knitted gnomes - which I think was in Simply Knitting about 10 years ago!!!

These will hang outside until Christmas eve - if I'm honest, I prefer to see them in the garden - they brighten gloomy days & make me smile on my way to the woodshed or to fill the bird feeders. I pinched some hydrangea flowers from my mother in law's garden, so I'm going to weave those in with some dried berries. I've also prserved some leaves in glycerin in the hope they'll last through winter this year.
