Now that my children are getting bigger they often steal my clothes (Arlo has taken to wearing my trainers and winter jacket, and Keira my knitwear - this hat, in particular.)
So I made her the same hat ('Jul' by Jenny Gordy) and let her choose the yarn which is Knitsch Yarns 'Chickadee' (there are some more details about the yarn and pattern here on Ravelry.) She's worn it a lot already - it has quite a lot of slouch on her but I'm told that's a good thing.
The usual Saturday activities (kids playing soccer, shopping at the vegetable market, going for a walk) were off the cards today due to an excess of rain and mud. So we made lemon honey instead, which is rather like bottling sunshine in jars.
This is my favourite recipe, though there are quite a few versions out there. It makes enough for a few small jars and a bit leftover to be eaten immediately on fresh bread. Lemony zing combined with buttery sweetness = the best.
I hope you're having a nice weekend so far.
