Toast And Marmalade For Tea


The Opal socks destined for Saturdays market, in a way I hope that they don't sell as I really like this pair. The colours of browns, greens and blues are so me, they would look rather nice on my feet.

Now there are many who think that all I do is knit, especially the kids and Mr Brickie (I've decided that sounds much better than DH which here in Australia has a totally different meaning!!). Now this is simply not true, I have been known to have domestic moments in true Nigella style as this photo proves.

Some freshly made Tangello and Passionfruit marmalade, my whole house smells of citrus, it is lovely. Marmalade on muffins for breakfast tomorrow, yum!!

I visited Sober Knitting and she had a link to this so I am going to do my bit and knit a blue square. I definately take for granted fresh water straight out of the tap as I am sure most of us do.

First Vegemite then Tangello and Passionfruit marmalage...You Aussies sure eat some strange stuff...

Larjmarj said...

Looks Delish...far better than vegemite which as we all know is made from vegetarian mites...right?
So what's DH mean in the other hemisphere, I'm dying to know ;-)

Lovely socks & gorgeous colors. Where do you buy your Opal yarn? It's so difficult to find in Perth. What size & length DPNs do you use? Sorry...so many questions but I am really into socks now!!! And yummy marmalade - I made some plum jam once & it was lovely.

I'd have a hard time giving up those socks too! Very pretty.

Those socks are so lovely, they are sure to sell. Maybe you'll have to make yourself another pair.

I am not a marmalade fan, but that looks and sounds delicious! Will you be sending off bad vibes to potential buyers??

Sometimes Unwilling Guru said...

Okay ! Call me dumb but I thought DH was Dear Husband( but there are times that doesn't apply,LOL)
Can you help out and tell us the other meaning?!
Ps the Opal Rainforest Wool hasn't arrived yet,starting to wonder how long the ,mail takes from Germany!

I love the socks...and everything looks very yummy.
Vegemite isn't so bad though.

Great socks, as usual:)

Love the idea of knitting a river. I've also toyed with a new name for my hubby for much the same reason!

Shelley said...

Those socks look great!

Umm...what is tangello? I've never heard of that.

Laura said...

Love the Opal socks, Sharon, and I knew you had to do much more than knit with the size of your family! :)

Laura said...

P.S. When are you going to take one of my blog buttons, girlfriend? :))

Yuli said...

Nice socks! Hmmm, the marmalade looks so yummy.

Those are the prettiest Opal socks I've seen in an age, Shazza. I hope you got to keep them. :o)

I love to make freezer strawberry jam but your marmalade looks luscious, too!
