my first…

I am finishing my UFO’s now a days and happy to say I have not many… here is what I managed to cast off today and blocked it as well

my first knitted doily 🙂

2014-05-24 19.41.12It was started in October 2013. It is  Semco Fairy Knitting Design No. 9 a free knitting pattern. The pattern includes instructions for making 5 different sized cloths from the same patten and can be worked with yarn of any weight from size 60 thread on 1mm needles all the way up to fingering weight cotton on size 3.75mm needles. I used the light fingering weight which I had in my stash. 

It is going to be on centre table!!

not a complete fail

I tried my hands on caramel custard, and as my earlier experiences with caramel ( for Indian desserts) has never been consistent, I was not sure how it will turn out.

And so becoming too carefull I did undercook the sugar! The result: the caramel turned out pale with no color.
