I like to make things.  I'm not very prolific, but I love knitting, crochet and cross stitch.  I've dabbled in all sorts of crafts but always return to those three.  I've been knitting and crocheting since I was six and used to knit a lot of my own sweaters back in the day, but I much prefer smaller things now.  Baby clothes are pretty much ideal :)  It's taken me ages to track down some pictures, so please do clicky!

Crafty stuff this way... )

 Just watched How To Cook Like Heston.  I fucking love Heston.  He's mad as a stick, innovative and self-taught which I admire intensely.  I have spent a happy half-hour learning all about how to cook beef better.  This is how exciting my evening is :P  

It was actually fascinating stuff.  Much better than Heston's last programme, the disastrous foray into reality TV, which I think proves that Heston is best when he's allowed to be himself.  Geeky and excited about food!

Now to try the Star Anise Trick---not quite as cunning as Pratchett's Gingerbeer Trick, but probably more delicious---with my next stew or chilli,   I probably won't grind my own meat and lay it out neatly to form burgers, but I might well try his salt-binding technique

And now we're watching Tamara Drewe which is actually pretty good.  I couldn't get into the comic strip collection, but the film is much more accessible.  And fun!
