Life is complicated - love, family, work... Knitting is simple - it's about imagination and creativity - about connecting with history and about connecting with my inner self. People knitted in ancient Eygpt, in the Middle Ages, on boats fishing off the coast of Scotland in the eighteenth century and today. Pretty amazing really. When I knit I relax, the rhythm allows my mind to wander. I solve the problems of my world!
Basically the recipe is:
Cream together 6oz (175g) of butter and 3/4 cup of caster sugar and then mix in 3 eggs (one at a time). Sift in 3/4 cup of self raising flour, stir in 3 tablespoons of milk and then sift in a further 3/4 cup of plain flour. Lastly stir in 4 oz (125g) of chopped glace cherries. Pour the batter into a ring tin (buttered of course) and cook in a moderate oven for about 30 mins. (cooking time depends on the tin - in a normal round cake tin it will take longer)
The icing is a nob of butter, icing sugar and enough milk to make a stiff paste.
Oh, and this is what my son made me:
I'll make a 'crafty' boy of him yet!!!
