Current WIPs

Mrs U Makes...Fuss Free Baby Cardigan

In my last post, you saw the 3 in 1 Top. At the time, I had only cast on a few stitches for the third section. I'm now happy to announce that since then I have not only cast on the third section. I've also joined it to the second section and worked quite a few rows.

3 in 1 Sweater: An Update


I've come to the realisation that a lot of my post are either about recipes or my own patterns. I don't have a lot of post about my current WIP's. I always have the intention of doing this but most of the time I get so carried away with the actual making.

At the moment I have two main WIP's a top for myself and a cardigan for Little Miss U. I briefly mentioned the 3 in 1 top by Atelier Alfa, in a previous post. This top is knitted in one piece but looks like three layered tops (check it out it looks great).

Rhubarb Frangipane Tarts

Mrs U Makes... Rhubarb Fragipane Tarts #baking @MrsUMakes

In the U household, we don't tend to have desserts after our meals. However, since the tripolatas started school (where they always have pudding) they have been asking, "What are we going to have when we finish our dinner?". Saying 'no' to this question leads to them opening cupboards to see if in fact there is nothing for dessert, then protesting at the lack of said dessert.

Rainbow Coconut Bars


Mrs U Makes... Rainbow Coconut Bars #mymrsumakes #nobake @MrsUMakes

With the cold weather setting in, I can now make a few chocolate based treats for the tripolatas (and for me too). Since the middle of spring I've had a few ideas floating around, and these Rainbow Coconut Bars are one of the simplest to whip up.
