Hellooooooooooooo! I'm bobbing by to let you know I am here quietly pottering about in the Attic, I hadn't meant to be gone so long. I'm still in the midst of my post-Yarndale recovery period, I'm not bouncing back quite... Continue reading

Yesterday we woke up under a damp white blanket of misty fog and the hills were nowhere to be seen. The temperatures are dropping now as we walk on the cusp of Autumn, and it was a surprisingly chilly 4... Continue reading

☀ I'm not sure that I can really get away with describing this photo as a Summer Moment, but I'm going for it anyways. This was a rather wet walk along the canal on our first morning back to school... Continue reading

I've just come out of the oven-warmed kitchen and am feeling all content and domesticated this morning. I've a huuuuuuge work load piled on my shoulders right now (not literally, but it feels that way), so in times of rising... Continue reading

Over the years that I've been designing and making blankets I've become fascinated with the way in which inspiration strikes - it's a very unpredictable thing indeed and really rather amazing! Sometimes an idea will ping into my mind as... Continue reading

We were up on the moors two weeks ago on a warm, bright Sunday morning, and looking at these photos now is making me feel all kinds of heart felt good things. I remember the day so clearly, I can... Continue reading

☀ A short walk in the woods last week when the weather was warm and grey and we all just needed to be out of the house for a bit. We're so lucky to have this beautiful area of woodland... Continue reading

On Monday morning we miraculously managed to get ready (with a picnic and everything) to leave the house at 8.15 am. We kept our fingers crossed for fine, dry weather and set out to spend the day pootling and pottering... Continue reading

A little while ago I contributed to an article for Simply Crochet magazine which was all about yarnbombing. After the magazine was published, I came across a question on the Simply Crochet facebook page asking me whether I'd mentioned the... Continue reading

We ventured out into the misty grey yesterday morning to take a walk around Grimwith Reservoir. We are generally an early-to-rise family (with the exception of The Teen, who's body runs on teenager time these days), and it's fairly easy... Continue reading

☀ Humid, hazy weather here right now, with low slung cloud and the constant threat of rain in the air. It feels warm and muggy, and I find myself lacking in energy and slowing down to a lazy dawdle. I... Continue reading

I'm pretty sure I don't need to give any sort of introduction to this yarn, it's been my main go-to yarn for blanket making since 2010. Over the seven years that I've been using Stylecraft Special DK, there have been... Continue reading

☀ The upside to the rainy downside is that sometimes we get to see the most beautiful colours arcing across a stormy grey sky. ☀ A bunch of sunflowers gifted to me by my lovely friend and neighbour as a... Continue reading

As you are all probably well aware, crochet blankets are my true passion and never fail to be at the top of my crochet feel-good list. But my second best favourite kind of make is anything small, colourful and decorative,... Continue reading
