Holidays and Cakes

We've been away on holiday, it was lovely and we even got sunshine for the whole week, which is never a given in England! Arrived home to find my raddishes had had a growing burst, my first vegetables from the garden this year which am ever so pleased about.

It was also the other half's birthday yesterday so I made an iced fruit cake, am making my sister's wedding cake next year so have been experimenting with different icing types recently, this cake was done with sugarpaste covering and modeling paste flowers, was pleased with how it turned out and it tastes great!
I've really wanted to start the Goddess Knits Aniversary KAL but am lacking yarn, it requires 1900 yards and I definitely don't have that much 2ply in my stash, nothing at my LYS (which is very acrylic orientated anyway) so have been looking online for something lovely but not too expensive. To keep me busy I've started the Victorian Ruby scarf from the Victorian Lace Today book with some Forsell 3ply I inherited, its knitting up quite quick but I do hope it looks better once blocked as it currently resembles a dishrag! I've finally finished my son's socks and as soon as I get him to model them I'll write up the pattern, so pleased with how they've turned out and they're a super quick knit.
