Back in the groove

This week has seen the restoration of routine in our happy household and has afforded me the opportunity to create a sense of order in our home.  After the long lie-ins and lack of structure during the summer months the start of the new school term has created a new timetable of activities and a […]

The Ripple Effect

This week I have been completely immersed in Lucy of Attic24’s fabulous Coastal Ripple Blanket and to say that I was no crocheter before this week would be an understatement but now I am completely and utterly hooked.  I am absolutely in love with the fabulous DK colour palette that is worked randomly throughout this […]

Hitch-hiking again…

So at long last another project is complete, although deep down I am missing the nightly challenge of finishing another tooth. I absolutely adored this easy knit and would recommend this to anyone who is itching to pick up their needles and get back into knitting.  The Jitterbug yarn is an absolute delight to work […]

Hitch-hiking

This week I have been making great progress with my lovely hitch-hiker scarf which is a really versatile, easy to follow pattern which can be found on Ravelry courtesy of Martina Behm. The hardest choice was actually selecting which of lovely Jitterbug shades to opt for but in the end it was the seascape Aegean […]

Half Term Madness

This week has been one of those crazy weeks that sneak up on you every once in a while.  It all started out so well with a weekend filled with sunshine and so we were finally all able to get outside and play in the garden which the little people love to do so much. […]

Knit a Rainbow

Today I shall mostly be working on this gorgeous design for little Alice courtesy of the fabulous MIllamia. This rainbow dress is an adaptation of the original colourways laid out in the Carlota pattern which features on the front cover of the amazing Bright Young Things Collection and can also be purchased as a single pattern from Woolaballoo. I have chosen […]

A great yarn…

Our Woolaballoo Yarn Bowls are much admired across the land.  They are all handmade locally and have a wonderful “rustic” appearance.  They are a weighty white stoneware with the Woolaballoo yarn ball logo fired into the base and outer rim in either pink, turquoise or green. Each yarn bowl has a heart shaped slot to feed your yarn through […]
