This Week I’m Loving …

These soft wrist warmers made with 18g  of left over Old Maiden Aunt wool / cashmere I knitted Mr T’s Christmas socks with. Spring may be on the way, but out in the garden it’s still a bit chilly and these wrist warmers are a great way to add warmth when you don’t need a full glove (and they’re easily pushed up out of the way when you need to get your hands in the soil!)I’ll pop up the pattern soon, they only take a couple of hours to make.

I’m also loving the redesign over on Regula’s Blog, I’ve mentioned her before and if you’re not already a regular reader get yourself over there. I will be making butter following her fab instructions very soon. The last time I made butter I was seven – and it came about by accident – taking milk to school in a tupperware cup on a hot day is not to be recommended.

I’ve also been loving the birds, who after we felled a couple of trees (sick and diseased) have now stopped sulking and are visiting the newly sited bird feeders. Unfortunately the Sparrowhawk is back too. But so are the Goldfinches, so that’s good news.

What ever you’re up to this week, have fun and stay creative.

    Love this photo of my bedroom set for #lovecrochet  magazine, they always make my work look so stylish! Warm fire, cosy blanket & a bit of cheeky crochet. This is one of my favourite ways to spend the evening. (Photo of me by @andyaelli ) Bit of Herdwick love in the studio today, gluing purse frames to restock retailers. You can buy these from Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham or Gallery Artemis in Cockermouth. Proper Cumbrian Herdwick wool, crocheted, then boiled for added strength. #crochet #britishwool For Christmas I would like more little pots to put things in! Looking for an simple stashbusting project ? @edencottageyarns is running a "silsden stashbuster " crochet along, details over on her ravelry page. I designed this pattern with beginners in mind & the pattern can easily be adapted to make everything from cushion covers to king size blankets. Want to join in? There are prizes up for grabs too! #crochet #yarnlove Sunday morning "arty shot"! Thanks to @andyaelli for making my hands look pretty!! Delivered some of my boiled wool purses to Gallery Artemis in #Cockermouth today - my favourite sold already!
