All things orange

I've been busy knitting Elan's Voyager Stole - I used the excuse that I needed it to go with my bridesmaid dress (in the tropical heat of Costa Rica, of course it was essential!), and I've been wearing it pretty much non stop ever since....

Knitted with 2.5 balls of kidsilk haze on 4.5mm needles. Lovely.

I've also been rather busy with the sewing machine this week, here are two of my three new aprons. I'm totally adicted to making aprons. Resisting the urge to go to ikea and buy up heaps of fabric.

And hurrah, it's rhubarb season again! I had my first bunch this week, roasted with a bit of ginger, orange zest and brown sugar, lovely on muesli. And the cake of the week is Nigel Slater's apple and marmalade cake - very good timing since I've just produced about 10 jars of marmalade from a frozen stash of seville oranges!
