April on the Needles (and hook)

Looking back at my finished projects this month I’m surprised how little I have achieved. It’s a sign that summer is coming and knitting will give way to growing for a while. Not pictured here is the huge beast of a jumper knitted for the teen – which used 13 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran – no wonder there has been little else on the needles!

Any way, Easter knitting was fun and I did manage to finish a couple of gifts (still secret so no pictures yet). Now  the weather is warming up, I’m turning my thoughts to Christmas knitting and lots of tiny projects which I can work on in the garden, all suggestions for summer knitting and crochet welcome.

    Andrea – you will have to wait for the Strawberry Shortcake to be revealed!
    Heike – Thank you, I am crossing my fingers that I’ll be spending lots of time in Oxford visiting the teen. It really is a beautiful city.

  • 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
#slowliving #winterstories #notjustlakes #morningslikethese #seekthesimplicity In the greenhouse, in the dark - clearing up and making room for this year's veg :So good to be getting dirt under my fingernails!
#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!
