Star-Topped Mince Pies:This is the way I make my mince pies, and there is no changing me or them: they are small, to be popped straight into the mouth in one go; the pastry is plain, the better to contrast with the rich, fruited filling; and they have not full casings but little stars as lids, which makes them look beautiful and taste flutteringly light.
Davis’ cat scarf is the perfect stash busting scarf! I used 2 skeins of Knitpics worsted weight Wool of the Andes (in brown and orange) as well as a variety of worsted weight scraps to create the fun colorful stripes in the cats body and tail. The length and final look of this scarf is entirely up to you and your choice of yarn and scraps. That is what makes this scarf so much fun!
