Sunday Adventures with New Yarn and Ice Lolly Making!

I work three Saturdays in four at my day job so I like to cram lots into my Sunday "weekend!"  I'm generally to be found, like most days, working on my jewellery, but I like to fit some extra curricular Sunday Adventures in too. I thought I'd share with you my latest Sunday Adventures!

I've recently been asked by friends to make them a tea cosy for their newly acquired tea pot and I've chosen some new yarn to make it- lovely soft Peter Pan DK in rainbow colours

The stripey tea cosy pattern calls for you to use 50g of each colour but with the yarn held double, so I borrowed the wool winder from work and set to work spinning two separate 25g balls of each colour

Here are the lovely neat little balls of yarn ready to start using in the week- much quicker and easier than winding them by hand!

As well as catching up on non-work craft projects, I often like to make cakes or some sort of treat on a Sunday (I honestly enjoy the therapy of making of them as much as the eating of them) and this week it was ice lollies! I came across this recipe for strawberry ice lollies online- they are a bit like a take on a Fab and are made with fresh strawberries, yoghurt, white chocolate and hundreds and thousands! Here is Mr Writer with his. Find the recipe for these here and find the ice lolly molds at Lakeland- looking forward to using these lots over the summer!

Hope you all had a happy Sunday- what were your Sunday Adventures?
