It was my birthday a week or so ago, and Brendan (that's the one I'm going to marry) made me a cake. I came home from a work trip to this:
It was very hard to follow the rules, but I did and the next day he produced this:
Yum! a polenta/ orange/ almond/ honey cake. Just as well I'm marrying him, huh?
And here is a little bit of knitting... I did these try-outs a while back, and now feel ready to tackle some sort of jumper for the boy, just need to find a pattern suitable for such a beginner.
Moss stitch: *K1, P1* K1
Tracks: Row 1: *K4, P6* Row 2 and alt rows: purl, Rows 3 and 7: Knit, Row 5: *P5, K4, P1*
Chevron Moss: Row 1: *P1, K3*, Row 2: *K1, P5, K1, P1*, Row 3: *K2, P1, K3, P1, K1* Row 4: *P2, K1, P1, K1, P3*
Ridge Stitch: Row 1: Knit, Row 2: *K2 tog all across the row*, Row 3: K into front and back of each stitch, Row 4: Purl.
And I got some lovely yarn for my birthday too, so ought to find a pattern... any suggestions?
