A walk, a pie and something new

Posted by

We are very lucky to live a stone’s throw away from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. But sometimes we visit, not to enjoy the sculpture, but just to experience the change in the season. A couple of hours spent with my daughter, away from TV, gives us time to talk and put the world to rights.

We came home and completed our Beef and Guinness pies; two for the freezer and one for that evening.

And finally something new.
A crochet lace scarf with some hand dyed sock weight merino wool.

I came across the pattern on Pinterest and traced it back to Ravelry.
It is the Angel Crochet Scarf by Amanda Perkins
I’ve used an 8mm crochet hook to keep it as loose as possible. I’m hoping the lace will open up on blocking.
Here’s to a good week ahead.

      1. I do. Also, what yarn & shade did you use for your jumper? I want to knit myself something and I’m going for absolute practicality over anything else. I figure grey is the best colour and I liked the silver grey stuff you used.

    1. I’ve had lots of practice!
      Top tips for good pies.
      Make sure the filling (just a beef stew) is quite thick if you are having a pastry base as well as a pastry top.
      Make sure the filling is cold before you cover it in pastry, or the pastry will melt before it cooks.
      Make sure your oven is nice and hot and heat up a metal tray in it on which to place your pie. This will help the pastry base cook.
      Make 2 or 3 at a time. It’s far too much work for just one pie.
      If stuck for time, use shop bought pastry. No one will ever know.
