Made It! #33

~ I love Pinterest and would like to make a recipe of my boards every week. Since I have lots of recipes pinned (that, until now, I just pinned and only that), I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins on my boards
For this week I had the most delicious recipe in mind. At least that's what I though. But to be honest I didn't check the ingredients before I told you the Raspberry Almond Cake was what I wanted to make. So when I looked at the list of needs and saw that a lot of the ingredients wasn't in my pantry, because I simply don't use ingredients like coconut flower, coconut sugar, tapioca starch etc, I decided to try to make the cake with the ingredients I initially thought would be used, the ingredients I use when I make a Spanish Orange Almond Cake.
What I used:  5 eggs 200 grams almond meal 200 grams caster sugar tea spoon baking powder 200 grams raspberries shaved almonds
What I did: Cooked the raspberries until soft Whisked together the me…

A while ago I saw the most beautiful wool by Scheepjes, called Whirl, turning from one color into another while crocheting or knitting. I loved the wool but didn't really know what to make with it, until I found this (free) pattern for a blanket.

The blanket is really easy to make. When you're a tight crocheter, like I am, I would recommend to use a larger hook or more wool to get a bigger blanket. The pattern says the blanket will be about 104 cm wide after 37 rounds, but even after doing 50 rounds, my blanket only measures just 90 cm.  
The Scheepjes Whirl I used is called Liquorice YumYum. I love licorice (or drop, as it is called here in The Netherlands)!

Do you know the 4 Seasons crochet designs by Lalylala? I wanted to make her Halloween series last year, but I was busy with other Halloween patterns then, so I had to postpone it til this year. The first one I already made. 

The second one is almost finished.  I will show you that one in another post.
This is the whole Halloween series:

September is my most favorite month of the year. Normally, I would say. In the part of the world where I live (The Netherlands, that is) fall is in the air, but most days are sunny and the light is beautiful. Not weather that makes me want to heat up the house, close the curtains in the evening and light the candles. This year though it's raining from the first day of the month up until now and more rain is in the forecast. So the Pumpkin Spice Smoothie I last week announced to make fits totally in. 
And it became my all time favorite smoothie, I can tell you! If you like pumpkin spice, you really have to try this one!
