Circles Scarf – Reprise

I am still in love with this simple, yet very effective crochet pattern from one of my  favourite crochet designers, Linda Permann, which first appeared in Issue 11 of Inside Crochet magazine. I always wondered what it would be like to make a blanket or a throw using this technique and now I’ve seen this one made in Rowan’s Felted Tweed I am determined to make one for myself. Just imagine snuggling up in this on a cold winter’s evening.

Even a beginner can master this crochet pattern, so do give it a try. In fact, I’ve even begun swatching mine … in this gorgeous Australian yarn I bought at Woolfest:

  2. I love the colours in your yarn – it made me think of the seaside! I clicked on the link to Linda’s blog, where I read through her post on blocking – I was delighted to find that I do it properly!

    I love the green too, it was a “couldn’t resist” at Woolfest. You could easily make the scarf :)

  • The gooseberries are plump and tart - perfect for gin! This is my favourite summer gin. Add a few elderflowers if you like. Freeze the gooseberries first so they release their flavour.

The leaves make a fabulous "tea" to feed tomatoes (mix in a bucket of water with a handful of nettles), it doesn't smell as bad as comfrey feed and much cheaper / greener than the stuff you buy in garden centres!!

Can you read that  card? A valet to whiten your converse! Brought back memories of  whitening my Dunlop green flash in the 70's!!!
#chatsworth #converseallstars #conversetrainers Strange sky tonight. Common hogweed. Even the weeds look beautiful in the sunshine today. The flowers and  stems of this one are destined for the dye pot. There are lots of varieties of hogweed, if in doubt don't touch - the sap is highly irritant, even poisonous in some. 
#hogweed #foraging #ecodye #permaculture  #naturaldye #slowliving #bakingandmaking Everyone loves elderflowers - even the cockchafers (maybugs). Last night we sat in the garden drinking the first batch of elderflower champagne, watching the bats & the moths and listening to a blackbird serenading us. The hedgerows are full of elderflowers & champagne is easy to make (easier than cordial), if you have white wine vinegar, lemons & sugar. Click on the link in my bio and type "elderflower champagne" in the search bar.
