Socks 'n' mushrooms..............




Apart fromchocolate cake making :), this is what's been on the go here. I gotmy socks finished;although I've been knitting them for years, it's taken me this long to actually design a pair myself, for myself. These are they, perfect fit, gorgeous wool, nice to wear.
The other pciture shows my first attempt at drying mushrooms; the sturdy metal rack was procured from the tip, and is just right for this job it seems.Teh mushrooms came ready sliced. I don;t usually buy them like this, but they were cheap in the Co-op, and British, so I thought I'd give them a go for drying. One day over the gentle heat of the ticking over Rayburn, and they areperfectly dry and leathery, ready for storing away. Geed up with this success, I want to try some fruit too; will need to get some suitable storage containers sorted out.On another note, literally, it is National Dawn Chorus Day today, the birds are giving it laldy out there, even this late in the morning. A real privilege to hear them, and one of the greatest pleasures known to man I should think.
