Somewhat spurred on by a couple of hairy blokes on TV the other night, I have today surpassed myself and made bagels. The photo isn’t good, but it’s dark and there’s no way they’re going to be here long enough to take any photos in the light!
They are totally yummy - soft and light and not dense like shop bought ones. The only problem is not eating all of them at once. And the worst thing is that I am out of cream cheese! Tragic! (Although not tragic enough to stop me eating these!) – I made 10. I doubt they’ll be any by Monday!
|The Christmas tree is up and Spot seems to think she would make the best present ever – well she’s not wrong is she? Bless her. |
On the knitting front, I am making my sister’s Christmas present so no photos of that. But I am also knitting a shawl for my 87 year old neighbour, who has no central heating, and my utmost respect and admiration for even getting out of bed on days like we have had recently. It is Anni Designs Two of a Kind shawl, but knitted BIG! in New Lanark Aran. Hopefully it will take the chill out of a few of those winter mornings!
