New blog – Meret

I finished Meret on Thursday I didn’t add any extra repeats, so there’s no slouch. I’m not sure if I’d add more slouch next time or not   We had monsoon like weather on Sunday morning but I braved it in order to get to the farmers market where I bought lots of cherry tomatos [...]

Slightly Delayed Making Monday Post…

I finished knitting the case for my HTC One X and, although I now I have a hard plastic protective case, I’m still very attached to its knitted counterpart so it’ll be staying in there for the time being. I’ll post the pattern later in the week. This weekend Doug and I went to the [...]

First Post of the Year

And it’s about hot chocolate… I’d fancied making this vanilla hot chocolate mix ever since I heard about it on Twitter earlier in December. It sounded pretty simple to make. I already had homemade vanilla sugar but not four US cups worth so I only made a quarter of the mix. I also added up [...]
