The secret shame of yarn addicts

Woolly words #3: Ahhh, we’re in the thick of the Great British Summertime. It’s August and the rain is coming down in biblical amounts. Not that I mind, it’s perfect weather for snuggling up with a wonderful woolly project. The only problem is deciding which woolly wonder to crack on with… At the end of […]

Woolly words #2: Hooked on a Feeling…

Crochet is a dark art… A few months ago I could not crochet. I had always wanted to learn but no one in my family was a crocheter and often, by the time we get to being a grown up (a term I use very loosely!!!), we decide that things are very difficult and come […]

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

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 […]
