Worcestershire Sauce, Lemons and Knitting

I am having a Market stall on the 8th so I have
 been busy cooking up some supplies....
No rest for the wicked!
A Pickled on Peisley favourite...."Worcestershire Sauce"
This is my little lemon tree that I planted last year, I had to
espalier it onto this lattice because it was getting very top
 heavy, I lost 2 lemons in the process but still
managed a nice yield for my first year...
My first big harvest.a bakers dozen, they were so full of juice!
Straight into the pot with some freshly laid eggs from my
girls and whipped up into a batch of yummy Lemon Butter
another Pickled on Peisley favourite...
Only crafty thing happening so far this week other than fabric
 toppers for my jars has been some Nanna Knitting....
I purchased this skein of 20 ply yarn in Nundle....
Big fat needles ready to go....
I started off with this leaf patterned scarf but felt
the wool was not quite right for this one....
I think I will save this pattern for a different yarn....
I unravelled it and started a Chunky Rib scarf/cowl instead....
A nice quick knit and oh so warm and cosy, this finished
 picture shows the colour better because it was taken outside...
Should go great with jeans and a warm top...
It was nice to have the needle clicking again....
Stay warm lovely ladies....

Until next time, Happy Stitching

Kate

Yum! Two of my favourites. Isn't the 20 ply fun to knit with. I bought enough for a throw rug some years ago. It knitted up in no time flat. I love your chunky cowl.
