a new hat

In the week end I made a much needed chocolate, ginger & hazelnut cake
and I knitted a cable hat,
I saw it a while ago here and here, the pattern is from Linda LaBelle.

In the mood to bake a lemon drizzle cake today.
Very much needed in this grey and cold weather.

I love your hat...well done! And your tea cups and saucers are delicious! I'll pop around for some lemon drizzle shall I??! Have a nice rest of day :)

How pretty! Just a moment ago rushing for carrots, cabbage and ginger in the shop I had a minute in front of the yarn shelf thinking that if there was a nice woolen yarn, I would go for it. Then, I realized that I might not be able to get my hands into that yarn before April and then I thought that hopefully in April I don´t no more need that what ever would come out of that yarn. At least I hope, but there is so much of snow.

So, instead, I can admire your hat! And being able to do so, I am very happy (:

Here the Monday has turned to a bright pink sunset and I am about to finish one of painting. Then to the cabbage, carrots and ginger (with some onion and garlic)!

Happy evening to you!

Anna Emilia, carrots, cabbage and ginger sounds like a nice winter dish...I guess it is never to late to knit a wooly! :)))

Kerry, with pleasure!

Gina and Severine, the row counter it was a lucky win fron Ebay, as I love yellow, Isometimes add the word yellow when I search for some accessory ; )

Severine the tea towel is from here:

Fanja and Maria, Jamie is fool proof...he is my fav chef!

Ana, You will come to visit someday...and I hope your home will be finished soon, so you can finally take out of the boxes all the lovely things you have gathered and enjoy them (as they deserved). I love this print from Elisabeth...
