I also love that song, but had never really listened to the words. So obviously had no idea it was a Bible verse, how interesting. I too am on a downsizing mission, but wow I never knew it would be so hard! I cleared out my shed to make space for shelving which my husband kindly installed. I've managed to pack up some big plastic bins which are now easily accessible (nothing worse than having to move everything out from under a bed to find one thing!) I also have some extra space and boxes which are slowly filling up with car boot sale goods ready for the spring. I'm determined to make a bit of cash out of my stuff. Now if only they sold non return valves for doors......stuff can only go out and nothing new can come in. Except yarn, cause really you can never have enough yarn

Congratulations on the blog award, so well deserved. Such a pity that this creative event falls on the same day as Hitchin Festiwool. Is it possible to be in two places at the same time??

1 reply it even get light in December? I know very little about Iceland, except what I read in Knitlandia, ha. It sounds amazing though, especially if you get to see the northern lights. I bet Lars is going to sneak into your suitcase!

Oh boy what a great store!! Just interested in their biodegradability. I'm a big fan of colourful napkins, plates and straws but also really keen to try reduce my waste especially single use straws so I now only buy paper straws. Intentional buying and reuse is something I'm trying hard to do.
I really don't take advantage of the amazing places to walk in this beautiful county of ours. Must make more effort. Thanks so much for sharing!

I promised myself that I would not buy any more yarn until I had finished off at least 5 projects I have yet to start but are in the queue. Now though, I feel, I need that jacket. It will be the perfect cover up for the office over the winter. And really that is such a practical, useful item of clothing!!

Thanks so much for sharing your story. I would love to be able to buy your products here in the UK. Shipping from the US is so expensive :( Perhaps one day you will expand over the ocean :) Love reading your blog x

Oh I do understand dealing with a grumpy fur baby. My cat got annoyed with me last night because he wanted to be fed, NOW, and I was cooking some haddock for my supper which I was going to share with him. No amount of calling would bring him back until he was ready and then he wolfed it down, lol. They are funny little things

This is such a great colour scheme!
I never think i'll knit or crochet in Africa but a few stitches in the evenings seems to help calm my over stimulated brain after the day of intense heat and amazing surroundings. Sounds like an amazing trip!

Oh goodness is it really nearly autumn? I battle to fall into a new rhythm when the nights draw in so I'm hanging onto summer for just a little longer. And also hoping for summer to actually arrive in the UK. We've not seen much sunshine yet.

Aren't Olivia's patterns wonderful! I've been winding plenty sock yarn for an upcoming trip to Edinburgh. Socks are perfect train knitting :)

Mollie, have you heard of She has amazing video tutorials. PS I'm in no way affiliated with the website I just came across it when I wanted to learn to make socks and came away knowing the magic loop two socks at a time method! Good luck

A very happy belated birthday! Those socks are very cool, I love the colours :)
Thank you Grace. Very interesting. Over the past few months I have thought a lot about what small changes I can make in my every day life. I will definitely look into the food I buy and where I buy it!

Wow what an interesting interview. I had no idea agriculture contributed so much to climate change.

This is such a great tutorial. Seaming is so important to a professional finish to any knitted article. My one tip when doing increase or decrease on a garment is to do them a few stitches from the edge so you don't have to contend with 'steps' while seaming.

Not a good idea to read this at my desk, because I AM NOW CRYING TOO! Oh you poor little love and your poor mommy, I bet it was a bad few hours, but so glad you've recovered and all is well :)
Oh we are away this year, or this would have been perfect for an Easter lunch. Thanks as always for the inspiration
