Glorious sunshine outdoors, a sunny kitchen indoors and no work. Almost perfection. A day for adapting things.
First there was a cake recipe that ended up as Chocolate and Crystallised Ginger Cake, followed by a sweater pattern adapted to experiment with some Rowanspun DK in Goblin, shade 736. I fear I may not have enough wool to make the hoped-for item so I won't jinx it by naming the garment just yet. What a shame this yarn was discontinued. Maybe I'll stumble across some more as if by magic. It has been known.
A jockey wearing green won the Grand National this afternoon so my knitting adaptation is at least topical.
