Knitting has become my sanity time - I finished knitting the shawl but made it smaller and I'm happy with how it turned out - useful for wearing around the neck with shirts.
Currently I'm working on a test knit for a cotton t-shirt style by Laura Aylor (Fogbound Knits) - If you click on the link it should take you to my project page on Ravelry. Using cotton to knit with is hard on the hands and shoulders as it doesn't slip along the needles the same way that wool does.
I sent the beanies for Stacey and John up last week and was surprised when they received them the very next day!!!! They took a photo with them both wearing them which was great to see as I was a bit worried about the fit for John, but it seems to have worked out just fine! I'm so looking forward to seeing them when they come down in May for my "big" birthday!
They are sooooo sweet too. I've sliced, grated and top/tailed them all and placed them into bags in the freezer to use over winter. I've kept some in the fridge to use the next week or so - I've made some yummy carrot cake (recipe at the bottom) and plan to make some carrot and ginger soup as well.
I still can't believe the sweetness - just sooooooo different to supermarket ones - but then nearly every supermarket vegetable and fruit tastes pretty much the same these days and goes to rot before you get time to use them!
The vegie garden has been well worth the initial effort we put in when first moving here as it will save us $$ (particularly with the price increases) and be better for our health.
Take care my friends. May God answer your prayers as we head through the week ahead of us!
Hugs Sharm xo Here is the Carrot Cake recipe I used - I divided it into a bar cake and a ring cake and froze the bar cake which I took out and used 2 days ago and it was just fine having been frozen.
