It was knit and natter this afternoon, a very special session. We celebrated our youngest members birthday with a tasty selection of sandwiches and savouries followed by mince pies and birthday cake.
The celebrant was Sophie, her first birthday, she may not knit yet but she has been with us since she was an egg.
Cards and presents were accepted graciously even though she is teething, her little cheeks were scarlet.
There was a little knitting and some crochet happening but mostly it was chatting and laughter, and some yarn stroking and buying.
I found some to knit Elf slippers and have cast on the first one, I found the pattern free on Ravelry.
Dinner tonight is a new recipe for nut roast, it has layers of sliced cougette, grated cheese and then some cranberry sauce in the middle. I have a tray of balsamic roast veg to serve with it and have made a tomato sauce, with not a subtle amount of garlic.
Now I am back to my knitting while the oven does the work.
Hello Pam, I am the lady in Deb's wool shop, who you were telling about the elf slippers! I found your blog and have enjoyed reading about your crafting exploits. I generally only post once a week, on a Wednesday, when I link up my blog at What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, which is where crafters from all over the world show what they're working on that day. It is run by my mate Julia, who was the other person in the shop today!ReplyDelete

I have found your blog and had a little dabble around and will be back. I have followed so I don't miss anything. Deb's shop is full of goodies, I was so pleased when I found her by chance.Delete
Any reason to have cake is a good reason for me :) Sounds like a fun time! Poor little one teething though. Your veggies sound really good, I should sprinkle some Balsamic on mine when I roast them!ReplyDelete
I love Balsamic, I use it at every opportunity.Delete
can we have the full your recipe for the nut roast pretty pleaseReplyDelete
It is not mine,but can be found on Bohemian Mama September 13th 2013 as The Best Nut Roast. I can highly recommend it.Delete
Awww Happy Birthday little Sophie.ReplyDelete
I wonder if she will grow up to be a knitter and natterer.
She, may be a crocheter like her mum, both Mum and Granny are multi talented.Delete
Hi Pam, I forgot to give you this link the other day: Brown Sugar Cream Cheese FrostingReplyDelete
I make this often but I use real maple syrup instead of honey and it turns out really well. If it's too runny, I just add more cream cheese. I made this last year for my Yule log and it was a nice frosting - with NO icing sugar!!
Many Thanks Rain, I will be trying this out at the weekend.Delete
