Lazy Sunday

I love Sundays, especially when the sun shines. It’s a day to be with the family, enjoy the simple things in life. So, after a spot of baking and an hour or two in the garden I decided to sit down with my scrap box and do some indulgent knitting. This teeny little neck warmer was the result.

I talked about the pattern in a previous post, and embellished it with another sweet  little flower. The neck warmer used up half a ball of Rowan’s Alpaca Cotton that’s been lying around and the flower took a tiny scrap of Kidsilk Haze. It may not be to everyone’s taste, but I spent a happy hour knitting and sewing and I’m sure it will find a grateful home.

Now, it’s back to more complicated patterns and a felting project I’ll tell you more about next time.

  1. I am pleased you had a go at this, it also works well in cotton and one can feel quite ‘Tres chic’ Parisienne when wearing it, especially when you knit it in stripes.
    I also like your Moebius attempt. Looking forward to next weekend.

    Sounds like a perfect afternoon!
    Lovely neck warmer and pretty flower – I like things you can finish in an evening… then its sometimes good to have something on going too…
    Really looking forward to your felty project!

  • So proud of my crochet pupils on today's  workshop at @ditzyrosemakes . Most had never picked up a hook before, but fuelled by copious mugs of tea, cake & mutual encouragement they can now officially call themselves crocheters! Thankyou all for coming & being such fun to work with xxx
#ditzyrosemakes #grannycoolcrochet #crochet #amigurumi #learntocrochet And so it begins - checking the text actually fits the flatplan, swatching, proofreading & wondering why I put myself through this! New book nerves!!! Really looking forward to sharing this one' progress from plans to print over the next few months

#crochet #amigurumi #lovecrochet #naturalfibres #grannycoolcrochet  #horgolás #crochetmakesmehappy #häkeln #crocheteveryday The perfect yarn / button combination? About to cast on a baby cardigan, an excuse to use these beautiful buttons from @textilegarden. I like to use natural fibres and this wool & mohair blend from @thefibrecompany is a firm favourite, especially as it contains a proportion of British wool. We should celebrate our British wool industry & the farmers & shepgerds who give us beautiful, sustainable fibres to work with.

My review copy of @emmavarnam 's new book just arrived. Can't wait to sit down with a cuppa and enjoy this! Perfect inspiration for the ladies on my next granny squares workshop.
#grannysquares #grannysquares rock #grannycoolcrochet #grannysquarelove #amigurumi #crochetblanket Yesterday I made more elderberry jelly, but ran out of jars! Lucky my neighbour saves all hers & what was left is now in  one of my @littlewrenpottery bowls. It feels like we're approaching peak autumn here, the starlings have stripped the rowan tree of its berries, the oak leaves are turning and the forest floor is strewn with sweet chesnuts. This really is my favourite season.
