off the needles: little knitted hearts



Hello lovelies!  I hope you've had a peaceful, or brilliantly raucous, Christmastime.  I was holed up in the Shire (Devon, not Middle Earth) with The Chap and his family and 'twas splendid.  Anyhow, now we're back to some semblance of normality I can share this year's Christmas crafts.  



These dinky hearts were the I-cord project I mentioned in the last post.  I knitted a load of I-cord tubes, then threaded them with wire and shaped them into hearts.  A length of baker's twine or pretty ribbon and job done.  I'm quite pleased and have so many ideas for more I-cord goodies!      




I also rustled up my annual last minute batch of chutney.   It did turn out okay, but the unthinkable happened along the way - my go-to recipe has vanished from the internet!  I used this as an alternative with a few amendments, the addition of smoked paprika and a handful of sultanas.  I would like to be a bit more adventurous in the kitchen and try out some new recipes.  

Do you have any favourites?
