Spiral-Cut Butternut spaghetti

I’ve had this spiral-cutter for quite some time and I’ve read about how people substitute marrows and butternut for spaghetti but I have never tried it. Well, yesterday Jen said she didn’t want wheat spaghetti so I suggested butternut. I was a little sceptical and really had no idea how this was going to turn out but I must say, it was delicious. We ended up eating a little later than usual because Richard also wanted to try some, so Jen and I baked another batch.

It’s so easy! Peel the butternut, spiral cut it and then spread it out on a baking tray. Drizzle some olive oil over it and some herb salt and bake until it’s cooked. It really is lovely with Bolognese mince or even on its own!

Have a great weekend!

Moulin Rouge Cowl Test Knit

The Moulin Rouge Cowl test knit has been going well and such beautiful cowls are being knitted, I just had to share them here with you today! If you would like to follow along or even sign up as a test knitter, you can visit my group here.

I’ve also just finished spinning up my Wensleydale roving for the Tour de Fleece, it’s such an easy fibre to spin.

Do you use coconut oil? I’ve been reading up about it and it sounds truly wonderful, especially regarding dementia, Alzheimers and as a general healing remedy! I’ve started adding it to my coffee and using it on my skin. I’d love to hear any feedback you have if you use it.

Our temperatures have risen slightly here in SA but I believe we are in for another freezing spell!!

Oh yes, I’ve only just started using an e-reader, this is all so new for me:) Anyway Erin is going to read from it too and I just figured out how to download books! Yay! I still love to hold actual books in my hands but occasionally I can simply download one immediately and read straight away! Technology is amazing at times!

Have a lovely weekend, I can’t wait to see your links!

Hello friends,

It’s been a lovely week of knitting and spinning for me! I finished off my Moulin Rouge Cowl (previous post) and I’ve spun up a Camel Silk roving above. Jen has requested a pair of fingerless gloves in the yarn and I’m quite looking forward to starting this project.

What have you been busy with this week?

Have a lovely weekend.

This is some yarn I spun up a while ago, I can’t wait for the Tour de Fleece to start on Ravelry! I haven’t spun for a while, so I need to dust off my spinning wheel and get ready! Just a few more days! Are you joining the Tour de Fleece this year? Let me know if you are:) The Tour de Fleece, is a group on Ravelry that spinns during the Tour de France, there are even rest days, it’s great fun and there are different teams for every type of spinner.
