Great progress on my poncho blouse by "Hendes Verden". I have now learned, that I need to start with making a knitting test to see, what size of knitting needles, which I need for that specific yarn to get the required firmness of the knit pattern.
The knitting started with the arm, which I did struggled a bit with to get the size right, so it actually fits with the circumference of my under arm. Now I have knitted more than half of the entire poncho blouse. The knitting starts with one arm, followed by the body, when the part around the neck (the middle part) and when ends with the arm.
The majority of the knit pattern is stockinette knit, while at around the neck part the front part of the blouse is knitted with garter knit. After having seen the impact of the this dark olive green, I am wondering, if I should have picked a lighter green yarn colour instead of, so the difference in knit pattern is more visible ?

Squash season is here, and besides from making squash cakes, you can also use squash in buns. The difficult part using vegetable like carrots or squash in buns like these is to get the right ratio between liquid and flour, as the vegetables also provides moisture into the bun dough. I have previously made buns with squash, where I struggled with the a very moist bun dough.
The last time, when I made these carrot buns with whole grain flour, I got the right moisture content in the bun dough, so I did not have to add into extra flour. However, squash brings more water compared to carrots, so I could see during the kneading process, that I need to increase the amount of flour to get the right texture in the bin dough.
Carrot bun: - 12 buns
