 Took Mr T to Chester Maker's Market today. Ho got pie, I came home with pretty yarn from @joannawoodpaint (oh and cheese, curry sauce, cake, more cheese, smoked salmon and secret presents for lovely friends oh and cheese -with rioja and caramelised onion - have you guessed we love cheese!!)! Really hope you make this a regular @_makersmarket xxx

Sorry Walter - photo shamelessly nicked from your feed - but oh my - how fabulous! Go check this one out ladies (& gents) I just know it's going to be fabulous!
I'll be pouring myself a large g&t later and raising a glass to everyone who read or commented on my last post. We're definitely stronger together. Have a lovely weekend everyone xxx

#slowlived #thisthingcalledslowliving #bakingandmaking #ediblegarden #mygardenrightnow #permaculture #plottoplate Sometimes the best view is the one right on your doorstep. Just before I hung the washing on the line I decided to sit down, drink my coffee & be grateful... #bakingandmaking #thisthingcalledslowliving #slowlived #theartofslowliving #morningslikethese #mygardenrightnow #permaculture Old socks, new socks. Can't resist trying on newly cast off socks. On the left "old" socks in @kingcoleltd zig zag & on the right "new" socks in @coopknits Socks Yeah. 
#operationsockdrawer #toeupsocks #socksyeah #igknitters #madenotmanufactured #makeitwearit #toeuptuesday #toeupsocks #100daysofwool Weathered and worn... Beautiful, even in the rain... No knitting, just walking & enjoying the view xxx The sun is trying to come out. Wool in all it's natural undyed glory. Local, breed specific wools are the best! 
#100daysofwool #britishwool #britishyarn #herdwick #hebridean #choosewool #britishsheepbreeds 100 days of wool ... Found these lurking in my stash left over from one of last year's designs. I love all @thefibrecompany yarns, but this one is my favourite, it's a blend of wool and mohair (even a bit of British wool in there) soft to knit with, washes well & comes on all my favourite colours. Now I'm off to visit my favourite coffee shop & plan some Easter knitting...
#igknitters #100daysofwool #britishwool #lovewool #madenotmanufactured #shoplocal #notjustlakes Waste nothing. Even the tiniest bits of leftover wool can make stuff that is useful & beautiful. Collect your scraps, follow your favourite sleeve pattern and make arm warmers! 
#lovewool #loveknitting #lovewoolhatewaste #choosewool #madenotmanufactured #makersgonnamake #choosewool #zerowaste #permaculture #reloved #repurposed #upcycle #100daysofwool A good day to dry socks! I love wearing wool & knit most of my own socks (toe up, fleegle heel because I'm too lazy to graft toes or pick up stitches!!) My favourite yarns are Eden Cottage ayarns Milburn 4 ply, Sirdar Heart & Sole, Patons Kroy & West Yorkshire Spinners sock wool.

A gorgeous blend of merino & cotton called Coast, bought from @tangledyarnuk . I love wool / cotton blends, especially when they come in such fabulous denim shades.

Knitted on the bias using simple increases & decreases makes a perfect draping wrap.Knitted with 1 ball each of Wendy Ramsdale & Louisa Harding's Grace hand dyed from my stash.
#100daysproject #100daysofwool #wipwednesday #britishwool Playing hooky! I'm suposes to be working on a crochet commission (a huge cabled blanket that's taking forever), but I am giving myself the afternoon off to enjoy this gorgeous blend of natural fibres.  I've just ordered more because it knits & crochets like a dream.
