It looks a bit big. I might have to reknit it again later....I'll see, I am just learning.
Tomorrow we are flying to Toulouse for a week.
So, although I am sure I am the only one to blame, there is no point to give you the recipe. If you have a good bread recipe, just add the ingredients I mentioned above and it should do the trick.
Bread making is a skill I should learn, I'll put it on my to learn list.

I've started a new project with the wool from New Lanark but I can't say much for now.
I will start my first pair of sock, I think, as I need a small project while I will be in France next week.

Le Minh, I hope you like it so far because it is suppose to be for Camil :0)
I am still working on my lace project but at a much slower pace... I did the pattern 14 times, and I need to make it 40 ! You see the strand of blue yarn near the top, this is how much I knitted of it since last Sunday...
Enough for now, I am going back to my knitting before going out tonight.

The fair was great (much better than the October one I've been told) and there were several stands for knitters. The one I was interested in was the New Lanark Heritage Center one. They have really good value for money wool: wool 80%/silk 20% , 10x50g balls for £9. I bought 20 balls of a brownie plum color.
I also got some sock yarn (I will make my own socks one of these days) and some DK (not on the picture, it change color from grey to pink).
I also discovered an amazing yarn made with possum fur. It is incredibly soft. I am quite proud of myself as I managed not to be tempted and didn't buy any. If you want to know more about it go there.
Other all, I really had a good weekend, met nice people and I will certainly do it again.

Last week, on Ravelry, I've made an interesting yarn swap with someone in Florida. I swap some Araucania quellon (that particular colour I had was out of stock everywhere and I didn't had any plan with it) for that amazing Great Adirondack yarn, trillium. It is worth $45 and I just need a great idea for it. The picture does not make it justice, it is a shame because it is a truly amazing yarn.
An update on Maeva's jumper: on Saturday, Sophie gave me the ball of wool I was desperate for to finish that project. I knitted the second sleeves that evening and on Sunday was very happy with myself, finishing the embroideries and I was hoping to finish it. But when I wanted to sew the sleeves I realised they were far too small. I was really angry against myself because I never thought of checking the first sleeve (although I did follow the pattern)! How stupid is that !!!! I now have to re-knit both sleeves. Grrrhhh...!
Next weekend I won't be able to do much knitting for myself and I will miss the Newburgh knitting group as I will be at the SECC in Glasgow for the International craft and hobby fair- stitch and hobbycraft. I volunteer for that event to show and teach people how to knit. I am going on both Saturday and Sunday.
