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.
I have a friend called Helena. Helena´s got skills, lots of skills, like blogging skills, baking skills and sewing skills. The skill that has inspired me most is her knitting. Helena made a cardigan Emma made a cardigan, Helena made a scarf, Emma made a scarf, Helena made a Headband and now I´ve made a headband.
Needed: Wool and needles that gives you the gauge 10 sts= 10cm. I used some yarn I got from my granny together with 4 mm needles.
Row 1 and 5: Knit
Row 2, 4 and 6: Purl
Row 3: K3 (sl 3 sts onto cn, hold in back, K3, K3 from cn) repeat from ( to ) 2 times, k3
Row 7: (sl 3 sts onto cn, hold in front, K3, K3 from cn) repeat from ( to ) 3 times.
Row 8: Purl
CO 18 sts.
Work in pattern until the headband fits around your head when you stretch it a little, end on RS.
With WS facing: K3, K2tog, K8, K2tog, K3 (=16sts)
Now knit one row and purl one row.
Make buttonholes: K1, K2tog, YO, K4, K2tog, YO, K3, K2tog, YO, K2.
Work three rows in stockinette stitch.
Bind off like this: K3, put the left needle into the first stitch on the right needle. Pull the first stitch over the other 2 sts and off the right needle. Knit one more and continue like before.
Sew on buttons and weave in ends.
