Sock yarn delicate scarf crochet pattern
This delicate sock yarn scarf pattern is made out a lovely yarn that I bought in Amsterdam in Stephen West shop this summer, I love this yarn so much! I knew I wasn’t going to make socks but a delicate wrap!, for the first time in a long time I am actually keeping this scarf for myself! I give so many of my samples that away sometimes I don’t have a decent one to wear, this one is a keeper!
I used a combination of hand dyed sock yarn and Drops Alpaca and although I used a smaller hook F (3.75mm) I made it in no time!
You can get this lovely scarf pattern for only $3 on my Ravelry and Craftsy shops, but hurry the offer ends soon!

Girls and Women crochet sweater pattern
sweater crochet pattern is an easy crochet pattern to make, I love the simplicity of it, easy to wear at all times as a overall, wearing mine most people think I have a separate scarf on top of my sweater!. I do see myself with a nice steamy tea all rolled up in my sofa with this beauty on!
Sizes shown 6/7 on a 6 year old girl and Medium size for adults.
The crochet pattern includes 9 sizes from toddler to women’s XL and you can leave open as a cardigan or closed as a sweater/pullover.
Made with any worsted weight yarn and a J hook (6 mm) I wanted to show how easy is to translate this pattern to two type of yarns, I used Drops Nepal and Drops Big Merino for the girl sweater size, and John Lewis Aran yarn for the women’s size.

Healthy after school snacks, chocolate cupcakes!
With the beginning of the school year I get to think up new ways of giving my kids healthy after school snacks, everyone loves a good cupcake and although I don’t want to give them too many I found a way to make some recipies much healthier, roll on the clean eating chocolate cupcake!
I have modified a recipe I had for chocolate cake to make it a much healthier option with lots less fat and sugar, it is clean eating for everyone! plant based vegan yumminess! they must be very good because I need to stop the kids at two each!… also they kind of look very ‘mushroom’ like… they love them!
Here is the recipe:
- 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup non dairy milk, I used soya but you can use any nut milk too
- 1/4 of melted coconut oil
- 1 Tablespoon of apple vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mixed all the wet ingredients on one bow and the dry ones on another, poor the dry onto the wet ingredients bow and fold the mixture until well combined, don’t over mix. I bake them on a preheated oven at 280 C (350 F) for about 20 minutes and that is it!
I hope your kids will enjoy these healthy after school snack as much as my kids do!
All the best

We have been thinking about vegan food, plant based food for a bit now. Theo my partner, is training for Triathlons and as a result we have been reading lots about nutrition and it seems that plant based is the way forward, I am still researching this lifestyle and trying some of the most amazing foods the plant based has to offer!, I am feeling very inspired when cooking again so I am really loving it!, in this post I am just showing you some of the beautiful food we have been enjoying recently…
It was my boy’s 8th birthday celebration a couple of weekends ago, and I baked 48 chocolate cupcakes! yes! 48! I made them vegan… why? cos they were amazing! most kids helped themselves to an extra cupcake… that normally does not happen!
There was a bunch of sprinkles left, so we decided to decorate some chocolate biscuits! (these disappeared pretty quickly!).
Anyway, let me know in the comments if you are interested in the recipe for the cupcakes and I will include it.
