233/365 'Lovely Links'

It has been super cold and miserable here today.  I'm not complaining though, it's been the perfect day to stay huddled up inside, do some internet exploring, crocheting, making some yummy choc chip pikelets using this recipe (just adding a couple of tablespoons of choc chips) and watching the odd children's movie or two or three.  So what lovely links have I for you today......
If you love to try new foods like me I found this new to me website full of delicious raw recipes. On my list to try is this, this, this and this. And still continuing with the raw food theme I wouldn't mind trying this cauliflower rice recipe. And yet another gorgeous food related website I happened across is this one by Masha Zaric. She blogs from Canberra and is also a very talented photographer.  I first discovered her work through Oscar and Lucinda. So I sat there scrolling through her blog and admiring her work and found this fantastic post that I think explains aperture beautifully.  She also holds workshops for those who live in the Canberra area, it's a shame I'm not a little closer...
Since I've just recently finished one big crochet project I thought it might be best not to embark on another so soon.  I have two other projects that need my attention most importantly a quilt for Miss 10. So what to make when one wants to crochet but doesn't want a big commitment, a dishcloth. I searched and found this simple crochet pattern
For those who might want to give it a try but haven't yet mastered the stitches here are some links for you.
Here is a link to teach you how to single crochet or double crochet if you are using UK terms.
And I found this one and this link to teach the technique of crocheting in the front and back loop.

I hope you have been enjoying your Saturday.
