Perhaps you recall the pair of hand knitted blue socks I completed recently? Although these socks took me forever to knit, it didn’t take me too long at all to finish this “baby beanie” with the little bit of wool left over. And that didn’t take me very long at all! This will go in the bag for the next time I make a donation to Foster Hope charity.

Another recent finish was a little baby bunny toy. However, I had trouble working out the instructions for the head and ears, so had to fudge it a bit and hope it would all work out. (I wont be making any more of these, I decided). Another one for the donation bag.

So now I’m doing a little more knitting with the remaining white yarn. Perhaps another baby beanie, I decided, and I’m using some pretty pink yarn which needed using up.

To celebrate Robin’s birthday yesterday we went out to dinner at the local Cossie Club. WE both chose pork, cooked different ways. Robin enjoyed his Belly Pork meal, and mine was pork cooked with tamarillo sauce. When I was growing up, we knew this winter fruit as tree tomatoes. Like some other well-known kiwi favourites, tamarillos are world famous in NZ. The New Zealand Tree Tomato Promotions Council is responsible for dubbing them the tamarillo - originating from the Maori word “tama,” meaning leadership, and the Spanish word “Amarillo,” meaning yellow.
Happy Birthday Robin
He certainly deserved a birthday cake, so today I baked him an orange cake – one day late, I know. Goodness knows what I did with the cream cheese icing, sadly it turned out runny. But never mind, it still tasted good.
