Another Pair of Duffers

It’s been a busy week, selling patterns (yes, that’s right selling) and knitting up a couple of commissions, I finally managed to finish Mr T’s Duffers. These ones in Rowan’s Felted Tweed Chunky. No photos after they went in the machine as they’re keeping the Mister warm and toasty in this freezing weather and he refuses to model! This is still one of my favourite patterns – you can buy an updated copy on Ravelry and the revisions are fab – including a version to knit in the round.

I also found time to drop by Lynne’s Blog and discovered the cute little baby booties on the new issue of Let’s Get Crafting are one of her designs. I’m casting on this weekend as I have the perfect recipient in mind.

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today

I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
