Do you know, it's almost five years since I made my Granny Stripe blanket, inspired by the purchase of our beloved caravan on 1st May 2010. By the end of that same month, I was beginning this colourful blanket journey... Continue reading

Different to other parts of the world, we always celebrate Mother's Day during mid March in the UK. Here in the Attic household, it's generally a low-key affair and I am more than happy with that. I don't especially require... Continue reading

Yes, yes I know, here I go again with yet another post about yarn and colour, I am on a bit of a mad colour/yarn-fixated thingy, well nothing new there to be honest. I am resisting the urge to apologise... Continue reading

This week has gone by sooooo fast that I can scarcely believe that tomorrow's Friday. Friday???? How can it be Friday when it feels like Monday was only yesterday? I've been busy, so maybe that explains the whizzing days, and... Continue reading

8 am on Sunday, J and I wrapped up in multiple woolly layers and ventured out into the freezing cold clarity of the early morning. It was quiet, still, bright, icy cold. Actually, I remember now, it wasn't quiet at... Continue reading

When I was pondering over what sort of creature would be nestling at the bottom of my Winter wreath, my very first idea was to make it a robin. Here in the UK, this little bird (the European Robin) is... Continue reading
