Battenburg & Booty!

A very small piece of cake......I nearly bought myself a battenburg by way of research, but thought better of it!
I couldn't resist this lovely yarn from Cafe Knit - dyed with woad and spun from a local flock in East Anglia, this Lavenham Blue yarn is simply gorgeous.  Not too sure what I will knit from it yet, but it has to be something with a hint of Boudicea.....
Just got an unexpected windfall - a work colleague is clearing out her spare room and asked if anyone wanted a couple of bags of fabric....well, you can guess who was first in the queue!  Lots of interesting bits and pieces, as well as a HUGE piece of black felt....

I have to admit I smell this afternoon.......it's time to make chutney again and there is a big pot of beetroot bubbling away on the stove, filling the house with a spicy vinegary delicious aroma, which clings to the hair and clothes.  Beetroot was my favourite of the chutneys I made last year, absolutely delicious when on fresh crunchy bread with goats cheese....mmmmmm!

You have been busy! And will be even busier looking at that windfall!

Love your yarn. The colour is totally wonderful. :-)

And your beetroot chutney sounds delicious. You'll have to send me the recipe. :-) xoxo
