Citrus loveliness and chunky mustard snood!
For some considerable time I have coveted those gorgeous snoods, the kind you find in shops that you cant afford!
So when having a good clear out I discovered some chunky wool that I had bought over a year ago, had I bought it with a snood in mind?
Well it was crying out ''knit me!"
This was a project that had simple and quick all over it! With in 2 days I had knitted a long scarf and then joined it together to form a snood!
I cant tell you how easy it was, with chunky wool and massive needles you all can have one!
There seems to be a colour theme in this blog post, could it be the lack of that golden shine from the sky that has driven me to these hues?
My Mother rang me the other day to ask if I wanted some Seville Oranges as she had spotted them in the shops and it is Marmalade season.
Now, my mother gave me her preserving pan last year with the intention I think of passing on her wise preserving wisdom!
So far my experiences of making marmalade have not been very successful! Let me just ask you this, have you ever seen or tasted Lemon Golden Syrup!!?
Armed with the tools I headed off to be taught by the professional.....
I can now see where I possibly went wrong.........
After removing all the juice, pips and pith, slicing the oranges filled the kitchen with the most gorgeous citrus scent, heaven.
Due to so much chatting and giggling before all the preparation time was running out.....
I had to rush off to pick the monkeys up (smelling of the Mediterranean!) from school.
So unfortunately I left the marmalade in the good hands of the pro and hopefully I will be able to pick up jars next week of our tasty golden Marmalade!
At least I managed to finish one project!
