Hurray I’m done!!! Last winter I started knitting a pullover. In between, I totally forgot about it, but these winter holidays I started knitting again and finished my first pullover I’ve ever knitted. The pattern I used was very simple (perfect for begginers, plus it’s free!:-)) The patterns name is EYELET YOKE SWEATER and is from pink brutus knitts. I can’t say which wool I used, because it was just a remain we had at home. For more infomations check out my ravelry account- I’m a new member. For those who don’t know ravelry: Ravelry is a knitting community for organizing patterns, wool and projects. It’s for finding inspiration and ideas and to get to know people who are interested in the same thing. It’s also for spinning, weaving and crocheting. You can find lots of patterns and you can search after rubrics. I can really recommend ravelry. So here are the pictures:
The pictures were taken by my sister Lisa. By the way my username on Ravelry is LilaDeLila, so see ya maybee…
My sister Lisa has baked these delicious shortbreads yesterday. The recipe is from BBC but she changed a few things… So she created two different biscuits, chocolate and vanilla flavour. I’m not a huge fan of shortbread but I can’t even say why… However the chocolate ones won my heart. I love these biscuits to tea and coffee!
1/2 vanilla bean
Preheat the oven to 190°C.
Beat the sugar, butter, honey and vanilla bean pulp until smooth.
Stir in the flour to get a smooth paste. Turn on to a work surface and gently roll out until the paste is 1cm thick.
Cut into rounds or fingers and place onto a baking tray. Pierce them with a fork to get the pattern you want and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Set aside to cool on a wire rack.
Note: For the chocolate shortbread use 140gr. flour and 40gr. cacao and leave out the vanilla bean.
The last few days the weather was absolutely gorgeous; beautiful sunshine, a bit windy and mild temperatures. So my sister Lisa and I decided to take some pictures from each other just to practice and for fun. Here are few impressions:
