I've been busy with baking and crocheting, and have totally forgotten to update my blog, but you shouldn't miss out on a chance to se a picture of the finished brunkagefigurer (brown cake figures) that I made last week.

150 g brown sugar
250 g sirup
150 g margerine
1 tsp ginger
3 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp clove
2 tsp baking soda
1 egg
550 g all purpose flour

Brown sugar, sirup, and margerine is melted in a pot.
Add spices and baking soda and stir.
Take off heat and let it cool off until lukewarm.
Add egg and flour, and knead until smooth.
Put dough in fridge for a couple of hours or over night.
Roll dough out about ½ cm thick and cut out figures.
Bake in a 200 deg. Cel. preheated oven for about 8 minutes.

When the cookies have cooled, you can decorate them using icing made of egg white and icing sugar.

My first attempt at felting

The postman came with some of the yarn, that I have ordered for my felting project, today.
The yarn is called Schurwollkammgarn, colours 193 and 198.
I crocheted 10 rows of 10 half double crochet stitces (5 rows of each colour).

This is how it looked before it got felted: And this is how it looked after I felted it in the bathroom sink:
The piece went from 9x11 cm to 7.5x10 cm. Now, I just have to do some maht to figure out how many stitches and rows I have to do to make a bag.
