Woolly Wormhead

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

And here they are with chopped garlic, caster sugar, basil leaves & olive oil just before they went into the oven to be roasted for sauce

They didn’t produce a massive quantity of sauce, well they were only little cherry toms after all, but it was very good. After being squeezed through a sieve the sauce was quite rich so I added some Elmlea to it. Double cream would work just as well.

New Blog – Winter Woollys

I spent a lovely weekend with my friend Helen knitting and chatting. As a result, and including the train journey,  I got a lot done on Meret.

I’m now only 5 rows away from finishing. I had hoped to finish it on the journey back but as I decreased the harder it become to wrangle the knitting. In the confined space of a train seat I was drowning in circular needle cord and stitch markers! So it’ll have to wait until another day.

In the past week I’ve managed to procure this item for my next knitting project

It’s a 2 litre pop bottle donated by my friend Liz. I don’t tend to collect these so had to ask around at work. So why do I need the bottle? Why, for the brim of Woolly Wormhead’s Camden Cap of course! I’m taking part in the Knit Along this month but the only thing I have yet to decide on is the colour!
