Tomato, apple and celery cream soup is in Delia Smith’s basic “Complete Illustrated Cookery Course”. It doesn’t seem to be among the soups on her website. “Scotch broth” is basically neck of lamb and pearl barley with sturdy Scottish winter-type vegetables, carrot, onion, turnip, leeks, cabbage.
My poor husband meanwhile, who continues to improve, is crying out for Heinz Cream of Tomato and Campbell’s Chicken Noodle.
Jayne, thanks for the tip about Mirasol Hacho. Gorgeous, indeed. I’d worry about pure wool for socks, though, even with reinforced heels – my loved ones aren’t strong on tender, loving care. Maybe I can think of something else to use it for.
Helen quotes an interesting remark of Dufy’s in her latest post, about a conflict between form and colour. I think perhaps socks are a peculiarly good way to show off beautiful yarn.
Hannahknits asked about the pattern for the First Holy Communion veil I illustrated a couple of days ago. I just tried Googling, and was pleased to see that it came top of the list – I don’t think there’s another pattern out there. You’d still need the Kinzel book for the actual stitch pattern for the cross. I’d be very happy to provide any additional help I could.
It’s finished. I’ll postpone the picture until I have it anesthetised upon a table (=blocked).
