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!

Finally sewed buttons on this crochet cardi, despite having a drawer full of buttons, I ended up using a scrap of liberty print to cover some blanks. Yarn is @thefibrecompany Luma, which is so soft. The blend of natural fibres  make it perfect for baby makes. I buy mine from @tangledyarnuk . Teeny scissors were bought from @beyond_measure_uk

Yes, I know "everyone" on instagram sleeps under crumpled linen duvets, but after 30 years we're still using the king size Thomas the Tank Engine duvet my mother in law made as a house warming present. The other side has a more femenine print so we can take turns. Secretly, this side is my favourite!!

There's something about this colour palette that makes me want to get my knitting needles out - and another part of me that wants to be prepared & find my recipe for oak gall ink!!! Yes, still early August, but part of me is already embracing autumn!!
