Knitting for Me

As you know, there isn’t much time for “me knitting” these days, but desperate for something indulgent  I managed to squeeze in something just for me last week, it’s not blocked yet, but I’ve worn it all weekend – that rainy weather made me glad I had something warm and cosy.

The yarn is Fyberspates Scrumptious Chunky, which I first bought to make the Uffington and the pattern is “Owls Jumper” by Kate Davies, you can buy adult and child versions of this pattern from Kate’s website. I have both and will soon be casting on to make one for a special little girl and a lovely little boy (funny how all that baby knitting leads to toddler knitting)! The combination of fabulous yarn and a super easy pattern made this a joy to knit. (Special thanks to Sue B at Fibre & Clay’s knit group for reminding me this is a pattern that suits everyone – whatever their age or body shape). I had 43g left out of the 5th hank of Scrumptious, so it feels like a bargain too!

I’m almost finished my Christmas crochet commissions, and here’s a sneaky peek of some Jubilee / 4th July inspired crochet you’ll be able to buy soon on Craftsy.

Any way  …  back to commissions …

Happy making everyone x

#spelt #permaculture #bakingandmaking Thanks to @textilegarden I found the perfect gift for my best friend at Woolfest, like a tiny acorn our friendship has grown into big oak tree. Years of nurture has given us strong roots. Happy 40 years of frienship Ali xxx I really think poppy seed heads are far more beautiful than the poppies! A break from Woolfest photos today. 
#girlgardener #seeds #gardenersofig #mygardenrightnow Years ago, a guy I followed on twitter wrote an ebook, I reviewed it on my blog and  it became my "go to" Friday night curry book. Now he has a "real life" cook book, published. Congratulations Dan @thecurryguy it's a triumph, sorry I can't be at the New Bookshop to have my copy signed xxxx
