... Cake Stealer, Pumpkin Eater!!
Here he is sitting at the top of our stairs, looking like butter wouldn't melt!
But I had forgotten that he has a thing for pumpkin and I had left this pumpkin and chocolate cake cooling on the kitchen worktop. Note that there is a piece missing! Bad Boy Maurice had taken a bite!
This was a new recipe that I tried from here and after cutting away the part that had been nibbled by Maurice, the rest of the family declared it to be rather good.
I also baked some of my usual pumpkin cookies.
Hot off the knitting needles this week are a pair of Batty Wrist Warmers.
Fay had said to me that she was feeling cold, so I have knitted these for her. I thought that they would be ideal for her to wear whilst drawing (she is studying animation at uni), as they are finger-less. I'm not sure where I originally sourced the pattern from as I have had it for a while, but it can be found here. Now I think I need to make a pair for myself! :) I knitted them in Stylecraft Life DK using sizes 3.25 and 3.75 needles. I think I will add a couple more rows of rib next time to make them slightly longer.
Fay has settled well into life at uni and is loving her course. Last week she emailed some of drawings to me and I'm sure she won't mind if I share some of them with you. She has been out and about studying trees and buildings to learn about perspective and has been taking life drawing classes. Please don't scroll down to the end of the post if you don't wish to see nudity.
I think Fay is very talented, but then I may be biased! :)
Best wishes, Pj x
