Beautiful Discoveries

I discovered something wonderful...I LOVE COOKING WITH MY GIRLS!!! My daughters wanted to make some donuts from scratch, so I went looking on my 'trusty' YouTube channel for some videos on how to do so. I came across this pleasant woman's video on How To Make Cake Donuts ! We followed the recipe as best as we could and came out with these delicious looking donuts!

The glazed ones we made weren't bad either...we used confectioner's sugar, a few drops of vanilla extract(non alcoholic) and a few tablespoons of milk for the icing. They were very tasty...although next time we won't knead the dough as much to produce a lighter, fluffier doughnut. Can you believe that they disappeared in like 30 minutes?!? We had a wonderful time making was a pleasant experience for do some baking with my pre-teen and teenage daughter...BONDING!! Now they want to open up a donut shop! WHY me....???

Last night while surfing Facebook I came across this wonderful page called Knitspot !! I was blown AWAY by her wonderfully orchestrated knit designs and patterns!
I moseyed on over to the Knitspot Blog where I found a treasure chest of patterns, photographs, and interesting blogs about the simple things that people enjoy in life such as flowers blooming, kitting, cooking...etc. I am hoping that I get a chance to chat with this wonderful knit designer in the near future to discuss knit design, yarn and just becoming a better knit designer. It was truly a treat for me discovering her site and I am hoping to try out some of her patterns very soon!

Until next time,

P.S...saw these amazing pictures of swans...they almost look unreal!

The feathers look so fluffy!

You have an interesting blog masha Allah. Can't wait to see what you knit with that free wool. I think you would be interested in following my daughter's blog: Handmade Beginnings. Maybe mine too. I have 10 kids and homeschool two of them (long story). Oldmuslimwomanintheshoe.
