OH is off on holiday to Australia on Wednesday and this baby blanket is going with him as a gift for an old friend's wee girl.
I started this ages ago for another friend's baby and never finished it as I made her a quilted play mat instead. It was going to be a Tweed Baby Blanket which is a modern twist on a traditional Shetland Hap Shawl I didn't have enough yarn (I used it for other baby knits) to do the feather and fan lace edging, so simply crocheted a wee edge. Yarn is Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in Clotted Cream and Mocha. It is currently blocking on a damp towel so I hope it will be dry in time to be wrapped and packed tomorrow night! I'm glad I've been able use this as the yarn was pricey. It's not cost me anything as I had already bought the yarn ages ago so is a sunk cost (one of the few accounting tricks I picked up from the ex!!!)
Yesterday I made a roast dinner and tried this mix for GF Yorkshire puddings.
Looks a bit different from the packet!!! This is the second time I've tried to make a dairy and gluten free version and both times it didn't rise. Might give up.
I had lots of leftover veggies so they got turned into soup. One serving for today's lunch and one to take to work tomorrow. Officially I am now job sharing but I agreed to do some extra cover tomorrow and Wednesday. So over the next few days I'll be teaching 5 different classes then my own on Thursday and Friday.
Then I'm on holiday for 2 weeks! WOOHOO!!!!
