This weekend I had a hankering for carrot cake. I've seen this recipe on Lucy in the Attic's blog. She made it sound mouthwatering good, and it's very easy, so I gave it a try.
Not bad. I really liked it. I didn't wait long enough for the icing to harden, before slicing the cake, but I like room temperature food more than cold, from the fridge. Contrary to Lucy though, I love cream cheese (all kinds of cheese really), so I made a butter/cream cheese/orange/sugar icing. Yummy! Needs some tea to go with it to round it all up.
BTW- some people asked me for the recipe for my "Reindling". I'll have to translate it first, but I will put it up here.
One of my knitting goals for this year was to knit a pair of socks each month (or more if possible). Well I did finish my first pair in time.
pattern: Theme & Variation socks by Elizabeth Sullivan
yarn: 100% superfine merino (how long will they last? so thin, so soft) came as a kit from Sweet Paprika Design
needle: 2.25mm, 5 DP
start-finish: January 7 - 28, 2011
size: womens 11
mods: since the cuff was dark blue, I wanted the toes to be dark blue too. I shortened the leg part, because I thought I'd run out of yarn. Not so.
These socks turned me into a whiny being. I'm not going to knit with more than two colors in a row any time soon again. I'm so glad they are done. I like how they look though.
I've already picked out my next pair. I also finished shawl # 3 this weekend, and cast on shawl # 4, which is the Blooming Mystery KAL shawl. Didn't do much spinning over the weekend, oh well.
