Summer hat

It´s getting harder and harder to get crafty stuff done, with Tuva wanting my attention. But while she had a little nap today I manage to make this hat. Maybe a bit too small but it was so easy to make that I think I can make a bigger one soon.


Pattern in Swedish found here.

Pot holder

I had a little break from my two big projects (making a quilt for our bed and knitting a cardigan) and made this pot holder. The pattern can be found here in English and Swedish.

Replanting all our plants made it feel like spring is not too far away. Dave also planted some seeds that one day will be planted out in our allotment.

I´m right now in a bread making phase, learning to make bread with sourdough. I can´t stop being amazed how a mixture of flour (the sourdough) makes the bread rise. I´m not just making sourdough bread, yeast I found is still more reliable. These bread buns are made with yeast. And here you can find the recipe.
