Instant Gratification

I'm usually a process knitter and a long-time connoisseur of delayed gratification, but occasionally, a bit of instant gratification really hits the spot.

Two things I've made this week fall into this category:

A little blueberry baby hat...

The pattern is Baby Berry Hat by RandomStitches.
The yarn is Peaches and Creme 100% cotton by Pisgah Yarn Company.
I used 4.5mm needles throughout.
Total knitting time was less than two hours!

A lovely spiced apple cake...

The recipe is the Chalet School Apple Cake from Cherry Cake and Ginger Beer by Jane Brocket.
I swapped the ground hazelnuts for ground almonds and added some of the sliced apple through the mix as well as on top.
The results were delicious and didn't last very long!
