this is the view from The Humble Bungalow dining room.
It looks frosty and cold out there.
The red Adirondack chairs are wearing another layer of the white stuff.
This week I have been indoors staying warm and cozy.
So knitting has occupied a lot of my time
the newest project is a scarf with an unusual rib effect.
I found a similar one online and modified it.
I plan to knit it until it is about 36 inches long.
I think it will require 2 balls of Drops Andes wool and alpaca blend yarn.
I plan to give this scarf away and I like it so much that I may make another one.
Besides knitting I have been tidying and straightening things here in our bungalow...this is a "before tidying up picture!"
With a cup of tea and a break from my knitting
I sat and perused some cookbooks
and discovered a wonderful new coleslaw recipe.
Mandarin Orange Slaw
1 bag shredded coleslaw
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 cup drained mandarin orange slices
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons of the mandarin juice
1/2 cup oil
Mix together and chill in the fridge before serving.
It was refreshing and a nice change from the classic coleslaw.
Chester looks so cozy on his fleece blanket.
Pepper is on her perch staring out the window watching the birds.
Well I must get some household chores done now...
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow.
