I’ve been full steam ahead with my Dover Castle this week. It is a nice pattern, easy to do, and it would be easy to remember normally but I’m quite forgetful at the moment so it is easy to follow. The only wrinkle I can forsee is that it will be quite little even when blocked so more of a neckerchief than a shawl.
I am toying with using a slightly different colour and completely different yarn to make the edging with or going completely wild and using a different colour for the edging all together as I do have a skein of the same yarn in grey. The beauty of the pattern is that the edging can be as deep as you like so that is a very tempting prospect.
My friend Jan came for lunch today and I quickly made some little cakes for us. I used the Bakewell Cake recipe that I cooked for Tamyra’s birthday but made little cupcakes instead of a full cake in some silicone moulds I had in the cupboard – quick, easy, and no faffing. They were very popular.
