Who can say no to some crunchy cookies? On our knit nights there’s always tea and some treats (if it’s not too hot outside 😉 ). Why not make some cookies, you can make them in advance and just store them in an airtight food container until serving.
Crunchy oatmeal cookies
· 100 g butter
· 150 ml flour
· 300 ml rolled oats (uncooked)
· 1 ½ tsp baking powder
· 100 ml brown sugar
· 50 ml white granulated sugar
· 100 ml raisins
· 100 ml of mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, flaxseed)
· 1 Tbsp cold water
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in butter and until the mixture becomes lumpy, incorporate the water and form a dough.
Roll out the dough and use cookie cutters (or a drinking glass) to cut out cookies. Put on a baking tray that has been lined with non-stick paper. Bake in the oven (200 degrees Celsius) for about 8 minutes or until cookies are golden brown.

I wanted to knit a simple shawl and found this pattern (Easy as Pie by Marisa Fernandez) on Ravelry. But to knit you also need yarn, right? So I went to Copenhagen to buy some and I got really good advice on yarn shops from people in our knitting group. Sommerfugeln (or the summer butterfly) is a garnshop not far from Ströget, maybe a 15 minutes walk from the central station AND they have a lot of things you want in that shop. Believe me or not, but I have only two ongoing projects right now so I can focus on finishing this shawl 🙂
I’ve always been a person who would rather make something than buy it. So when I recently came into possession of a sewing machine, I decided to make a big bag to carry my life around. I decided to use this pattern, but the fabric I already had didn’t quite fit. So I went back to our local craft store and got new supplies (among a LOT of other things. Let’s not talk about those). Here’s what I bought, which should be all the things I need to get started:
I’m going to get started today. Soon I’ll have some sort of process gallery up with the finished product!
