my week so far

With only two weeks to go until my Swimathon event I was keen to boost my target. There is still time to sponsor me if any of you are feeling generous. I had reached my target of £400 but have since raised it to £500. Well why not, its a great charity. So more chilli jam was required, 4 batches and 650g later I've had enough (for now) of making chilli jam! Don't they look lovely with the sun shining through showing the little flecks of chilli. I made a batch of hot and the normal. The hot sold out quicker than the standard. A note for next time to make more hot.

I've got lots of little pieces of yarn from various projects, so a quick knit in about 20 mins is this little egg cosy. Since taking the picture the crème eggs have vanished :-)

With the long Easter weekend I plan to get on with Megan's uni blanket, over halfway and its looking great. I have enough wool to complete it so trying to be good during April and not purchase anymore wool. Famous last words and all that. Enjoy your Easter and lets hope the weather improves.

What a great amount you've raised for the swimathon, good luck with it. Love the egg cosy, it looks like a Big Knit hat.
