There's been quite a lot of creativity and baking going on here this week. My sock progress has been slow as I have picked up another project that has me HOOKED!
This is Liesl. Liesl is a down-loadable pattern from Ravelry. A simple, seamless and quick project that I am just infatuated with! I am already seeking out the next yarn to make another one! I have used an inky black Patons Jet (a pure wool and alpaca blend) yarn. You can make this with capped sleeves or long. I've made this one capped as I do love capped sleeve cardigans at this time of the year over a long sleeve top. I'll share a photo here when I'm done.
This week I made an Apricot and Carrot loaf which was delicious. I cut up 3/4 of the loaf into slices and froze them singly. They make an easy and healthy snack to grab for kids lunches. This recipe came from a page I kept from a Good Taste magazine several years ago.
Yesterday I made fruit buns which are just delicious!!! Why oh why do we buy these things when they taste so good, are better for you and a fraction of the cost? These were actually a hot cross bun recipe, but I omitted the cross. The recipe came from my bread machine booklet and it is very similar to most recipe's I've come across for hot cross buns.
What have you been making this week?
