I love books that cover more than one craft, and I guess most of us do. We love to create! You can only imagine how pleased I was to find Bake Knit Sew in my inbox. Evin O´Keeffe has collected all you need for a cosy weekend in this book. So here is my recommendation for a weekend styled by Evin:
Bake the Mugwamp Oatmeal Pie (not just for the great name), it taste great. It is the only recipe form the book I have had time to try since I just got back for the US. That is another aspect I love about the book Bake Knit Sew – the recipes have that lovely American richness about them.
Next step, make a cup of tea and cast on for the Sugar Maple Vest. The book explains absolutely everything you need to know to make this beautiful vest. Sit back and enjoy some knitting, tea and flick trough Bake Knit Sew on your tablet.
You will find a lot of good recipes and wonderful things you can make at home. I will make the bunting for Christmas and One of the great thing abut the book is that all projects either in the kitchen, by the sewing machine or in your favourite craft nook, seems to be easy and achievable within a weekend or so. When the weekend comes along I want to sit dow and relax, but also be creative. I do not want to start something complicated that is half finished on Sunday evening. I want to feel a sense of achievement and that is where Bake Knit Sew will come in very handy!
The photos in the book are great and transported me into a calm and creative corner of the world where I love to be! Thank you Evin.
