Week 5 and Work in Progress
Having finished the Granny squares for my scarf I have made a start on a new colour scheme. What this will be I do not know yet. Quite possibly a cushion, but we will see.
The Granny Square scarf is finished, apart from finishing off the sewing up. I might decide that I want to add more squares, and will make the decision when it is sewn together.
I decided to undo the scarf I was making B. It was in DK but was, to my mind, a bit thin and like a dishcloth. I bought some chunky yarn on Saturday and have made a start on the scarf. I seems a lot more 'scarf-like' to me now and being in chunky yarn is making up quite quickly. I am working it in treble but into the back of each stitch which gives a nice ridged effect.
We have been to a family party today to celebrate a cousin's 40th birthday. The food was Indian and as I said I would make a dessert I made this Carrot Halva to keep to the Indian theme. I have never made it before. It was delicious and everyone seemed to like it. However, I doubt I will make it again - I spent two hours yesterday afternoon watching and stirring over the stove. If anyone has a quicker method of making this delicious dessert, please let me know!
