Purple Elephants and Scotch Eggs

"Wee, sleeket, cowran, tim'rous beastie/ O, what panic's in thy breastie!" - "To A Mouse," Robert Burns

On the knitting front, things have slowed down a bit. I made my Christmas deadlines for two projects last month, and have been taking a break from the needles n' yarn of late. However, I did find time to make a stuffed animal for a friend's baby while sitting in a hospital all day:

There's nothing like knitting a stuffed purple elephant while sitting in a hospital to make people smile or to start a conversation.

As for cooking, my family recently discovered Scotch Eggs. There's a reason Scotland is the heart attack capital of the world, and these eggs are part of it. But they're incredibly tasty for lunch in winter. They go very well with strong mustard.

The recipe can be found here.
