Making and baking




I am making a scarf for my Miss M. I love the pink yarn, it's so thick and soft. This is knitting up pretty quickly and I'm enjoying working on it in the evenings. I'm also planning to knit a wee beret to match, then we will be all prepared for the colder weather....




I'm still slowly working away on my granny squares blanket and I'm still sewing in those ends...








I enjoyed making these little fairy cakes this morning. I love to bake and I know that Miss M will really enjoy having one of these with her milk when she gets home from school in a wee while...


I haven't had much time for blogging or visiting blogs lately - I have been really busy with work, family, friends, Brownies...and the list goes on! But I hope to visit you all over the next few days to catch up with you all!

  2. I am making a pink scarf too but my knitting tension has gone a bit wobbly just recently so I must put in a few more 'knitting miles' I think. It is going to be a sweet set Jo x

All that work will pay off in the end. I bet Miss M enjoyed those fairy cakes. They look very pretty and yummy. x
