This is my really cool pad, man!!!!
Pottering about!!!!

At the Ends of Reality!!!

Omgcb_15_colour_changes_1  My knitting of the Dr Who ZUC today is like that Bjork song where everything is ‘Oh so quiet’ until you turn it over and then there are bloodcurdling scrams, thunderclaps and cannons firing : and that’s just me!! Ahhhh!! Look at all the ends!! I can’t. I am ignoring the back and just concentrating on the quite Ok-edness of the front!! It is not too bad for my first attempt and I seem to be in the exact mood for knitting a complicated pattern with a new technique.

The Labradors woke me at about 9-23am, OK at exactly 9-23am!! Last night I went to bed at 10-10pm Omgcb_a_bazillion_ends ( yes I am obsessed by the time, thank your lucky starts I don’t have a phone like ACMA’s new one that records the time for each call!!! You would be subjected to that too) and I started listening to a very interesting discussion about education and then next thing I knew it was the morning!! Bah Humbug, I wanted to listen to that!! Harki wanted to play with a stick but then lost all motivation after one throw. She is napping again. Peri has been to bed, arisen in the hope of food when I opened the cupboard to make a cup of tea, but now she is all deflated and sad again!!!

A library book has arrived!! I knew my cunning plan would work. I am going to pick up ‘March’ by Geraldine Brooks. It is the story of Mr March , aka Mr Little Women’s father, married to Marmee, and his time away at war. I have no idea if it will be good or not, but the premise intrigues me.

We’re back playing throw the stick for Harki and Peri is enjoying the Autumn Sun on the decking out the back.

If you like coconut I can highly recommend this recipe!! I found a recipe on the internet but I changed it a little to suit our ingredients.

Frozen Coconut Mousse or Coconut Ice-cream really!!!

  • 250ml coconut milk

  • 110g caster sugar

  • 4 or 5 tspn gelatine

  • 250ml cream

  • 1 tspn vanilla

Place the coconut milk and sugar in a small saucepan and sprinkle the gelatine over the top. Leave for 5 minutes. Gently heat, stirring all the time, till the sugar and gelatine are dissolved, it shouldn't need to boil. Cool till lukewarm. Whip the cream and vanilla till soft peaks form and then fold into the cooled coconut mixture. Pour into a container and freeze.

Doctor Who ZUC is coming along a treat, try not to look at the ends. Now apparently Kaffe Fassett has a technique that knits them in as you go, I must look into that one day, if I am ever silly enough to do intarsia again ;)

I love icecream and coconut so I think I will be giving that recipe a try, it sounds delicious.

She who smells yarn

The Dr Who ZUC is looking good! Cant wait to see more of it!

ooooooh coconut ice-cream!! YUM!

RE: comment on my blog..I am using Patons Bluebell for those hand warmers! There is no way I would pay for the yarn they use! Mind you you would probably get a couple of sets..But still!!
