There will be more Canada posts (or posts that are somehow related to our experiences there) but for now just a short Sunday evening blog post.
Did you have / Are you having a good Sunday? Mine has been pretty awesome so far even though the weather is just blah. Rain, grey skies and a storm. There went our planned bike tour... Still, a good, relaxed day!
Bagels! Oh, is there anything better then oven fresh bagels? I love, love, love good (!) bagels. Not entirely sure when I fell in love but I think it was during my studies in Sydney. There was a bagel shop at Macquarie Shopping Centre (which was opposite my uni) and every now and then I had a bagel there with friends. It's really tough to get good bagels in Germany. In fact, I only found good, fresh ones in a bakery once. And this was discontinued soon afterwards.
Well, that left me with one thing to do really: Make them myself! My first ones weren't much to talk about but I think I got them hang of them now... I use this recipe from Smitten Kitchen. The bagels are kept in the fridge overnight to rise which gives them an amazing texture. True, it is a lot of work but it's totally worth it!
I am happy crocheting away the day working on my Canada Travel Blanket. I will tell you about it soon! It is pretty big already and I am kind of relieved that I am finally decreasing. As you might guess, the pattern is the Corner to Corner (again!)!

Fresh Belgian waffles while snuggling under my Rainbow Blanket.
Making another Corner to Corner Blanket with Stylecraft Special DK. I am not sure about the colour yet. Perhaps another rainbow one (larger this time though) or a pomegranate-white one. What do you think?
Hope you enjoy your day!
