An easy recipe to make, I had all the ingredients to hand in my cupboard (didn't bother with the cherries, but I guess you could use raisins) and I found the bars were nice and dense and chewy. They cut nicely into bars without any crumble, so defiantly a keeper to add to my repertoire.
On the crochet front, I have turned my attention to hats. I'd like to whip up a whole range of fun baby hats for the charity sale I'm having a stall at in November. last year I made this lot:-
These particular hats are made 'side to side' and then sewn up the side and gathered at the top. They give a more 'knitted' effect and are quick to make. Right now I am working on a hat on 'the round', using finer yarn than I would usually use on a smaller hook - it's looking nice and the stitches neat, however the fine yarn means it is taking forever to make up - maybe chunky wool is the way to go to allow you to 'churn' them out a bit quicker?
I want to make this into a mini 'Deerstalker' style hat, with ribbon to tie up the flaps at the side and maybe a button for the front flap. Hopefully get it blogged with a pattern at some point this week!
