Introducing... The eight strand plaited loaf!! 
Many a Saturday afternoon is spent in our little kitchen with husband Tom whipping up another ciabatta loaf. (I say 'whipping up' he spends most of the afternoon waiting around for it to rise!) In an attempt to better his bread baking skills I tried out the eight strand plaited loaf... Not only does it look good it tasted delish! And I think I impressed him! I'm not gonna lie I did get Tom to read out the instructions as I passed strand over strand... Just need to learn to plait my hair like this now! 

This with a can of Heinz tomato soup and I'm a happy girl!

Knitting Toys

You can get so much joy from knitting toys and this is one of the best!

Knitting is in my family genes, I have a Grandma that can knock up anything in wool in a matter of minutes, and Mother with speedy little fingers steam comes off her needles once she gets going!

Meet Cinders and Cinderella...  take a look at the gif. What little girl wouldn't want one of these!!

 And there is more... this isn't two toys... this is two toys in one!!! It is knitted toy BOGOF :)
What a treat to discover lifting up her skirt you would find another toy under there. I just love this!

I would love to say I knitted this but this one was done by my Mum, she spent a while on and off making this for my little nieces to play with when they come over to her house.

Let me know what you think in the comments box below! :)
