Regular readers may remember I taught myself to crochet a couple of months ago. Thought it was time to put it to the test (after a quick refresher) and actually crochet something. As we have family who are having a baby soon, I decided to do a little blanket. I only started it on Friday night, so obviously still a work in progress.
I’m using a pattern from the Stitch ‘n’ Bitch Happy Hooker book.
I also treated to myself to a lovely Imperia Pasta Machine and made my first batch of pasta dough. Had ravioli on Saturday and made this spaghetti tonight:
I think I’ll make Spaghetti Carbonara from Rick Stein’s Mediterranean Escapes.
Not much else to report, I’m afraid. Still not progressed much with my sewing machine, but part of that is because the spare room is a tip and I really need to clear my crap from the middle of the floor. I have promised I will do it before the end of this week…
