Handmade jam, clotted cream, scones and knitting!

It’s a winning combination!  Our Japanese guest crafter will be baking traditional fruit scones for the meeting of the Aylesford Knitting Group tomorrow, Tuesday, 29 April.  Don’t miss this treat!

Since I taught myself to crochet granny squares, watching Catherine Hirst’s (http://www.catherinehirst.com/) amazing Youtube video, I’m always looking out for visual guides.  Follow this link to a whole world of craftsy how tos.  There’s even one especially for Emma!  Mummy just has to make you this most adorable giraffe!
