Sun, food and hookyness

Just look at this gorgeous sunset. This was a few nights ago, and it was beautiful, and a much deeper red than this photo shows. I just love how the sun always sets behind this huge tree and makes it black.

It's wild garlic season - yipee. I don't usually get to the woods this early to get some (ie before the flowers come out) but today has been so lovely that we went this afternoon. I came back with a huge haul, most of which went into this soup. I still have some left in the fridge though, so I may add it to some butter and freeze it so I have some for future use. Mind you, I'll definitely be going back to the woods for some more ;o).

And this is what I'll be taking to the first Knitter Natter group tomorrow. It's going to be a lightweight blanket but I'm stash busting and I want it to be fairly big so I may have to buy a few balls of 4ply. I'm using a 6mm hook so it's growing fairly quickly. I'm quite nervous about the group as I hadn't checked the calendar when I made the posters so I hadn't realised it was Mothers Day! Anyway, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't be sat there on my own ;o).

Yum! Our wild garlic soup was amazing. I think because it's so fresh and new it makes a huge difference. Got a mahoosive bag still left in the fridge so going to do some pesto today and maybe freeze some. Am I the only one who is nibbling it raw from the fridge?! xxx
