In yesterday’s post, I mentioned the Shepherd’s Pie I enjoyed at the Celtic Festival. It’s one of my favorite dishes to make at home and Lynn of Craftstew asked for my recipe.
There are many permutations of this recipe but here is the one I use—it is super easy to make.

Not So Good
Last year I knitted a wool scarf for one of our son-in-laws, not the Irish Hiking Scarf but a different cabled pattern. He loved his scarf and wore it so much last winter he felt it needed washing to prepare for this year’s use—and he put it in the washer and then the dryer. Oops!
Here is how it was presented to me over Thanksgiving by my daughter. She worried I’d be upset but I’m not; things happen and we just deal with them when they do.
It’s now short enough for a toddler and is felted. I have promised to make him another scarf.
I should have thought about including a care card with the scarf but my husband's side of the family won't wear wool while my side (I have two children from a previous marriage) will. Anyway, I forgot about the wool care thing. Ah well; at least I know he loved his scarf and I'll send cleaning instructions this time.
