Thursday

A hat for my sister Gemma who is living in Amsterdam. It is a Meathead Hat using Lamb's Pride Bulky. Perfect for a cold European winter. Ravelry Link.

I managed to jog on the treadmill without falling off today.

I have just put Beef Ribs, Coconut Braised into the slow cooker for dinner. My sister made this last time I was at her place and it was divine.

That recipe looks dangerously good, anything that you throw in a pot & slow cook while getting on with your day makes it to my recipe book.

Great hat.

That hat is great! I have been wanting to make a pointy hat but didn't know they were called meatheads. It looks great done so chunky.

That is so cute, actually it is a little bit like a hershey's kiss. I bond with you on the treadmill thing; a few years ago I actually stumbled the first time on a treadmill, almost got 'treadmilled' right off. I am training for a race and now just try to run outside as much as possible.
