Not a Bad Day

I bought the yarn! I bought 1200g of aran yarn (which turned out to be 25% wool) for £15. I plan to use the aran yarn for hats to knit over Lent. I'm planning on using this pattern here - it is amazing! It is a basic knitted hat, which gives the pattern for premies, babys, children, women and men in seven different yarn weights!

I also bought the teapot that Wherethejourneytakesme got, for the lovely tea that I was gifted. It is perfect for me, and it was nice to have an excuse to drive a little out of the way to Sainsburys in Dewsbury. Next time I may go to Sainsburys in Halifax, as I believe that it is massive!

I need to learn to take better pics.

It's been a day of internet pages. For dinner we had gluten free turkey meatloaf, from here, which I originally found on Reddit. It's incredibly healthy, with low fat turkey mince, ground almonds and lots of garlic, but I think next time I may add a few extra flavours. DH and bear loved it, though, and would like it again soon, please, if I don't mind. I had to convert it from US to English measures, though, and I think it could have done with some more ground almonds. I used this site here, which is normally epic and includes stuff like calculating your weight on other planets, but I think the 1/3 of a cup of ground almonds equalling 30g may have been a little light.

I accidentally bought double the amount of turkey mince needed. I can remember somewhere seeing a recipe which had a crumble topping which included readymade stuffing mix and I can't seem to remember where I saw it. It may just end up cooked with onions and gravy and served with mash.

Now I am going to settle down and get on with more writing stuff.

Hugs to all.


  1. Do you think Sainsbury's will give me commission on helping them to have another sale on the teapots! My daughter does all her baking with American cups - I am still on pounds and ounces and you can hear me chunter now when I have a recipe that is all in those dreaded grams!! xx

  2. I'm glad you bought the yarn! :) Happy knitting!
