Cinnamon Rolls - (Maggie Sefton Challenge)

I have started the scarf but last week I decided to have a go at Maggie's Cinnamon Rolls. The outcome was eatable but I think they were a bit doughy and undercooked.

Dough left to prove the 1st time

Ready to be rolled out - disaster stuck as I thought mum has a rolling pin. She did not so I had to sort of push  it out and try and roll with a jar.

In the oven dishes and ready to be left to prove. 

Proved and ready to go in the oven.
I think I should have left them for longer though.

Just out of the oven.

Ready to eat, the icing was the best bit!

Yarn for the 1st two knits from Knit One, Kill Two. (Maggie Sefton Challenge)

Flower Colour - for Kelly's First Scarf
Kelly's First Scarf 

The original pattern uses chunky on really big needles, but I found this at the bottom of my stash. It is Super Bulky but I am not going to use really big needles. I am still going to knit the scarf in garter stitch exactly the same as the pattern but the needles are 8mm, so fairly big. 😙

It is 60% Acrylic, 35% Polyester, 5% Wool.

Lambspun's Whodunnit Shell

This yarn is for the sleeveless top. The pattern uses Bulky and Winter Garden is Chunky/Bulky depending where you look, so not much difference. It is 30% Llama, 30% wool, 20% silk, 20% Linen/Flax. I chose this yarn because of the colour and the fleckes in it. I think it will look right for this project.
