I lay awake listening to the storm too, and also wondered what destruction I would wake up to this morning. Thankfully just a few blown over bins, wheelbarrow and a bbq cover! I forgot to lock the chickens up last night so I was thankful that they managed to get themselves into bed and safe out of the wind. Love the bowl of bunny heads and I'm going to investigate the new yarns.

Oh wow you have some amazing projects on the go! My latest blanket was made with chunky yarn, there's no way I would manage a fingering weight one, let alone 5. You're an amazing knitter.

Those pinks and blues are just lovely and a good reminder that spring will come. I'm thankful I don't get the uphill cycle feeling in January as I battle enough with that feeling in the autumn. I do hope it levels out for you and progress is made. So looking forward to seeing your next release of lovelies.

No need to defend yourself to me! We have a friend who has all of a sudden started gifting us food hampers at Christmas time. In our 15ish year friendship we've never gifted anything to each other for Christmas. My husband and I had a long discussion about gifts this past Christmas as neither of us wants 'stuff'. I feel guilty about gifting in underwear but it's really something he needs, lol. I saw a family on facebook celebrating a gift card they received as a family which gives them yearlong access to attractions in their area. Much better idea than stuff that they are obliged to keep and just clutters up the house.

Oh goodness, all that food gone to the bin. My aim in 2018 is to drastically reduce my food waste. I hate throwing it away but actually it does look better in black and white, ha! Happy new year!

Oh dear Freddy :( accidents happen. Your mummy is very lovely to say wonderful things to make you feel better. She sure does love you lots x
I love a side dish of mac cheese, who knew it was so versatile! As an aside this reminded me of an episode of friends (which I can associate to any of life's occasions) with Monica cooking all the different types of food for everyone who threatened to not show up, ha!

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??

Iceland....December.....photography....does 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 :)
