the inconsistant blogger!

It's true, once the sun shines we tend to drift  far away from the computer, forget to take the camera out with us, and forget to blog.  We have been enjoying the sun, I'm sure you all have too and we decided that this year we would bake our own hot cross buns

I've done it once before, a long time ago all alone but this year I had a little helper (who did most of the work).  We used the recipe from this book.  My copy has a few errors in it, half a pint of milk and water was translated as 125mls which is only a quarter of a pint.  Stupidly I suggested we go for half a pint and see if it worked!!  So we were adding extra flour!

but they tasted delicious and worked despite our messing with the recipe

MY knitted hat was finished and immediately stolen!  I love it though, it keeps my ears warm and feels very 1920's.  It was from this lovely book

and I have begun some very scruffy crocheting with some gorgeous gorgeous Manos del Uruguay wool classica.  I am sort of aiming at something like this but need more luscious yarn so a trip to St Ives is in order, once the holidays are over
Hope you're all enjoying the sunshine and maybe getting a little crafting done too.
