DIY – virkade vårblommor eller “Hawaiian flowers”


Den här otroligt söta virkade blomman är designad av Sarah London. Hon kallar den för “the Hawaiian flower”.

När jag fick syn på dessa vackra men enkla blommor för först gången på Pinterest blev jag helt kär! Personligen har jag svårt att se en koppling till Hawaii eller Aloha (mest med tanke på antalet blomblad), så jag har på svenska valt att istället kalla dem för “vårblommor”. 🌺

Jag tog kontakt med underbara Sarah för att fråga om jag fick översätta hennes mönster och publicerar mönstret på svenska. Till min stora lycka, svarade hon ja! Tack Sarah för förtroendet! ❤

For Sarahs original pattern in English!

Min tanke är att använda dessa vackra men enkla blommor i en sjal! Jag har dock precis börjat prova att virka ihop dem, så vi får se – det kanske blir något helt annat när jag väl är färdig!

Crochet Pattern: Infinity and Beyond Broomstick Lace Scarf

Speckless Blog

When I was making this cowl, Nicky asked me what I was doing. And he thought I said “making a cow hole.” So now every time I pick up my hook, he inevitably asks me if I’m making another cow hole. Now I just nod and say “Yes, yes. I’m making a cow hole.”

Anyway, I really wanted a broomstick lace project with some meat on it – one I could really start to hone my skills on and get a lot of practice. And I didn’t want to make another cow hole. Since Tracy keeps talking about infinity scarves on the Joy the Baker podcast, I guess I have infinity scarves on the brain . . . so the Infinity and Beyond Scarf was born!

Are you ready for a challenge? Are you prepared to become a broomstick lace expert? Are you pumped for some drapey-lacey-goodness? Then join…

Crispy Brussel Sprouts with a Garlic Aioli

Costa Kitchen

Crispy Brussel Sprouts with a Garlic Aioli 

Brussel sprouts have a really delicious flavor and are almost like a more flavorful mini cabbage. This recipe can be served as an appetizer (think updated artichoke) OR as a vegetable side. You can omit the aioli if serving as a vegetable side or you can offer it separate and your guests can spoon it over the top. I made this with pork chops the other night and my husband freaked out it was so good. He’s so sweet. 🙂

Also, you might be wondering why I’m using canola oil instead of olive oil. The reason is  because brussel sprouts have such a unique and bold flavor and I didn’t want it to compete with the olive oil. Canola oil also seems to crisp things up a little better too. I hope you enjoy!
