Weekending

I was chatting to my grandmother on Saturday (Hi Gran 😁) and as we do, we chatted about many things, but one of the things we spoke about was the garden. She is a very talented and avid gardener. She used to own her own plant nursery in times gone by and was president of the Fuchsia Society in South Africa …

Yarn News

On Monday I dyed up the last 5 skeins of yarn that I had left. I quite enjoyed doing so. I’m not 100% sure that I will continue dying yet, I’d like to but it will depend on how they sell I suppose. Summer is usually a slower time for yarn sales anyway. Perhaps I will just buy in a smaller …

New Podcast & Yarns!

Hello Lovelies, we have been having the most amazing summer weather of late. Long, hot days, wild swimming, and BBQs have been filling our days over the past week. Today cooler temperatures have returned and I have to say that there is some relief in that. I have finally managed to find some time to put together a podcast. Editing was …

With the weather getting cooler I seem to have an insatiable desire to knit so those WIPS have been completed and a two new projects started and completed too. I cast on A Little ruffle in August. This is a …

Knitting News

Joining Ginny this week for Yarn Along I seem to have my knitting mojo back. It could be the change in the weather or it could be that I am so inspired by the colours on Dartmoor. Something that you might not know about me is that I studied fashion design many moons ago. So I am often inspired by my …

Crafty Finishes!

Well it’s been a week of finishes here. My crochet blanket is finally finished. The last little bit always seems to take aaaaages! But it is now done and happily being utilised on these crisp autumn evenings. It’s lovely and thick and heavy and the perfect size for in front of the telly, or to be popped into the back seat …
