This Week I’m Loving …

It’s been a while since I shared some of my favourite finds, so here goes with a quick round up of what I’ve found this week.

Starting with crochet: Take a look at this gorgeous granny Square jacket, I think the pattern is in Spanish, but fairly easy to see how it’s constructed. I’m tempted to track down the pattern, or have  a go with some of my stash yarns.

Tuesday nights in this house mean “Great British Bake Off night” last week I loved Jo’s macaroon recipes, which you can find here. More fab recipes on her blog too.

Up at the allotment, we’ve picked the last of the tomatoes and the peas, but the kale and leeks are doing well, promising lots of fresh veg through the winter.

Most of all this week, I’ve loved meeting so many Baking and Making readers at the Old Maiden Aunt Trunk show hosted by Fibre and Clay in Knutsford. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has gone home to some serious yarn fondling, I’d love to know what you make with your purchases!

Enjoy your week.

  2. It is Spanish (I’m the proud possessor of ‘o’ level Spanish!). I missed the Great British Bake Off last week – and I’ll miss it again tomorrow! I’ve just scrolled back up to lust after the beautiful yarns again!!

  • Cyanotype and crochet. One quick snap from today's workshop with @hannahlambtextileartist . Always good to step out of your comfort zone. @prettypatches_mag this may find it's way into new stitched pieces and I found a use for my extensive doily collection!!

I'm having all kinds of crafty fun and frolics here in Saltaire, but instead of photos of early cyanotype experiments. I'll just leave you with this, it belongs to another lovely lady on the course. I think she'd notice if it fell in my bag!

Going offline for a couple of days as I'm off to Saltaire for a stitching workshop with the very talented @hannahlambtextileartist . See you all next week.

Who cares it's too wet for a walk. Today's priorities: reading, knitting & coffee, lots of coffee... then baking...

One of my earliest published paterns, back when I wasn't sure my dabbling in design would come to anything, Knitting magazine commissioned these & my sabbatical turned into a full blown career change. I've never regretted my decision. Knitted in Debbie Bliss Rialto 4 ply I still wear them, sadly the gorgeous wellies are no more (link to story in profile).

Today's #yarnlovechallenge is "currently wearing" & as I don't do selfies you'll have to make like this is radio and imagine me in my handknitted socks, hat, scarf, jumper and of course wrist warmers as I try and get the veg patch into some kind of order before spring planting!

#britishwool #britishyarn A hand made home. Joining in with #yarnlovechallenge today. Our home is filled with hand made "stuff", knitting, crochet, pottery, wooden furniture made by Mr T... it's all pretty understated ... no garish brights, few pastels but plenty of neutrals and texture in natural materials.

#knittersofinstagram #crochet #britishwool #britishyarn #slowliving #thisthingcalledslowliving Spring has sprung (at least it's trying) which means a harvest of salad leaves for lunch - because you'd  be surprised how many common garden weeds are edible and delicious! So weeding is no longer a chore - it's a means to free food for the table!
