I popped on my computer several hours ago now, with the full intention of writing a blog post and then walking the dogs. The sun is will be setting soon and I’ve spent my whole afternoon updating my Ravelry Project Page instead – oops!
I included British Fibre Art Magazine as one of the things I had my eye on in February’s These Are a Few of My Favourite Things. The eagle eyed among you, will no doubt have spotted my copy resting (artfully like), under one of my Portuguese knitting projects a couple of posts back.
I was chuffed to bits that I’d managed to get hold of it, because at the time, the print run had all but sold out. Since then there has been a reprint, so I’m imagining you might still be able to pick up your own if you’re interested?
With the second issue due out any day, I thought I should get a post about it written up toot sweet.
As promised, here is the tutorial for how to make the Twelve Days of Christmas Mini Yarn Calendar.
I was rather taken with the Opal Advent Calendar last year, but it would be rather naughty of me to buy one again. My sock yarn stash is ever growing, almost on a weekly basis of late (shamefully. I might even count 2016 sock yarn purchases, before the end of the year – if I’m feeling brave.
I’ve been dying to wear my new socks, but couldn’t find them after showing them on the last episode of the Olann and Podcast. Dis-organisation at it’s best – nothing new there. You can imagine my relief, when I went to pull out another pair I’d been working on and discovered these beauties.
This week is a good week (so far anyway), we’re waiting on test results, but it’s going to be all good I can feel it in my bones. If were being honest, some of my favourite people, no longer inhabit the same world as me, so the least they can do is look after the other important to me, people. It’s not too much to ask now is it?
Enough nonsense, lets talk knitting and yarn…..
Continually captivated by where I live, I’m forever taking photos of the farm and surrounding area just because they make me smile.
I finished knitting these lovelies, whilst I was away on holiday, but wasn’t in any rush to sew in the ends at the time. We were, as you know, having lots of lovely sandal weather and I was waiting for a pair of birthday shoes. My children had ordered them in time, but sadly, they were out of stock and we were advised of a six to eight week delay.
A few of you might have seen this photo on Instagram earlier this week? If you did, you’ll also know that I’m on a mission to fix a cardigan.
