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!

  • Adorable twitchy nose, cute little feet - but don't be fooled - this cheeky fella has eaten every single pea I planted in the greenhouse - no wonder his coat looks so glossy!
#girlgardener #ediblegarden #organicgardener #permaculture #forestgarden #growyourownfood  #slowliving One of the most  precious gifts you'll get in life is a best frend. Flowers from the garden - even in January! Last year I set myself a goal, to have flowers from the garden every week of the year. January it seems is easy - winter flowering clematis and viburnum doing a great job of cheering up the utility room today! Gardens are about feeding the soul, not just food for the table.
#cuttinggarden #flowergarden #permaculture #forestgarden #girlgardener #makingwinter #winterstories Last Saturday morning, Allonby. Wish every weekend could start with a walk on the beach, the winter light is so beautiful! 
Today I shall mostly be blocking crochet swatches, baking bread (my "signature" spelt  sourdough) & trying to book an Easter holiday! Whatever you have planned, be happy my Instagram friends xxx

#girlgardener #growyourownfood  #organicgardener #ediblegarden #permaculture #forestgarden Hellebores, I love their delicate flowers and "barely there" shades of pink and couldn't resist bringing a few into the house today.  I'm slowly dealing with the pile of work on my desk, answering emails and doing one task at a time! 
Living with chronic illness is challenging and frustrating, but  slowing down and make the most of each day is a lesson I needed to learn!
