A quick and easy healthy midweek lunch recipe. Parsnip and leek go really well together, and the addition of the lemon thyme and lemongrass give a subtle freshness to the soup without overpowering the flavours.
2 large parsnips
Tbsp lemon thyme
Half a stick of lemongrass
500ml hot vegetable stock
Tbsp of olive oil
2 tbsp of diced chorizo (optional)
Cast on 23 sts. Work in pattern as follows:
*Row 1 (RS): Using Yarn A, knit.
Row 2: Using Yarn A, k1, skpo, k8, M1, k1, M1, k8, k2tog, k1.
Repeat the last two rows once more.
Repeat rows 1 - 2 twice using Yarn B.** Weave the different colours up the side at the beginning of the right side rows as you work so you don't have to cut and rejoin yarn.
Repeat from * to ** until work measures approximately 200cm [79in] long ending with Row 4 of Yarn A. Cast off on right side knitwise.
Alternate stripes of Yarn A with stripes of three different contrast colours. For this you will need two 50g balls of each contrast colour as well as three balls of Yarn A.

I'm crazy about yarn, Scotland, food, my husband and my three girls, and I live in a perpetual state of organised chaos. Some just call it creativity.
