It was a brisk cold morning, Ben had his coat on for walks today, and did not get any better as the day wore on. It has been raining for a couple of hours and has turned even colder.
I made a big batch of "chuck it all in" soup, some will be for lunch tomorrow and the rest is in the freezer. Just a selection of veg, celery, peppers, garlic and a chilli minus the seeds and pith. A little smoked paprika and some fresh thyme along with a big pinch of salt and pepper and some white beans.
Not to be confused with that soup off the adverts, this is chunky and there is no recipe, just make it up as you go. I would have put root ginger in but it was still in the freezer, next time, maybe.
The new sock is growing fast, almost ready to shape the toe and the bright shawl is on the blocking mat.
I have picked the pattern for the next shawl and just need to decide on the yarn.
Have any of you looked at the Hygge Shawl on Ravelry from the Nordic Stitches podcast, it is on my wish list. It measures over 2 metres wide and almost a metre deep in Worsted yarn, smaller in 4 ply but I really fancy the thicker version. I may get lucky at Wonder Wool next month and find the perfect yarn.
Dinner tonight is another pasta meal, puttanesca minus the anchovies but I have no black olives (some greedy girl ate them all) so will use green ones stuffed with garlic mmmmm.
BTW spell check wants to call it putrescent !!
I have been reasonably busy, bed changed, linen washed, dried and put away. Kitchen and bathroom whizzed but no vacuuming. The sofa and knitting won the day.
Oh, and I did another run to the recycling place, before thr rain came, and all the rubbish has gone. hooray.
My cuppa is rapidly cooling so I am off to enjoy it.
Have a good weekend everybody.
