This Week I’m Loving…

Playing with colour: Making these fab Loopy Roses from Australian Crochet designer Sarah London

Crocheting little motifs in vibrant shades of Debbie Bliss Cotton DK and Rowan Handknit Cotton  to  make a blanket that will cheer up me up on winter mornings …

I’ve also been reading …

Pinterest – a great way to share ideas and inspiration.

This article about Ravelry –  I knew it was big – but not that big!

I’ve been enjoying … my Ishbel, knitted in beautiful Shilasdair Luxury 4 ply. Of course it’s too hot to wear right now, but that hasn’t stopped me taking it everywhere!

Ishbel (Pattern by Ysolda Teague)

I’ve also enjoyed the new Harry Potter film (end of an era), all the frivolity of Fibre + Clay at RHS Tatton, a lovely lunch with some knit group pals and planning a little trip away with the teen. I’ll see you all when I get back when voting will be over. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me and sent such lovely messages. They are all much appreciated.

Have a good week, I know I will.

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!!
