Working on 2 blankets at the moment this is the second one. The pattern is from this book, The pattern is called suffolk puffs or yo-yos. I have added on petals and have been joining as I go. Loving the colour combo. I am making these blankets for 2 teenage girls I hope they like them.
A wee update of my flower blanket. I am working on a tutorial for this pattern. Should be ready soon.
Had a really busy day in the shop this weeek. Lots of people needing feed.
Been making my own soup recently and had some really good feedback on it.
Made a lovely one on Thursday, Sweet potato, butternut squash and smoked chilli, unfortunatly I don`t like spicy but sold the lot and had lots of nice comments. I will post the recipe soon..........
This recipe comes from Gary Rhodes. It makes the best yorkshires ever.
225g (8 oz) plain flour
A pinch of salt
1 egg white
300-400ml(10-15 fl oz) milk
oil, lard or dripping for cooking
Pre-heat oven to 220/425/gas 7. oil tins and preheat in oven until almost smoking.
Sift flour with the salt. Add the eggs and egg white. Whisk in 300ml milk (10 fl oz) This will give you a thick batter that should coat the back of a spoon. The batter is ready to cook. Spoon the batter into smoking tins and cook for 20-25 mins.
Cook slightly longer if you want crispy yorkkies.
These are plate size and I love to serve these with sausages and onion gravy mmmmmm yum yum enjoy...............
