Yes you're right Caroline and I think the Emily's favourite socks pattern is one I will come back to and knit again. Thanks so much for your suggestions too, I think I'm a bit hooked on sock knitting now so will be checking those out in a moment!

Hi Alice and thanks so much for the recommendation, we know that it's one to explore coming from you. We've booked in on their open day in September and have had a good read of the course outlines and it sounds perfect and the campus looks wonderful. Thanks again for thinking of us J x

Thanks so much CJ. I expect you've had some much needed rain by now but if not I think there's some heading your way today - we had a terrific downpour and thunderstorms overnight! Thanks for you kind wishes for Amy, hopefully all will fall into place for her x

Thanks so much :) I am really enjoying knitting these - hope it lasts until I have complete pairs and I'm not left with 2 single socks! With any luck I'll bring along at least 1 finished pair next week. Amy's gone off to Alton Towers for an end-of-term, post-mock-exams treat!

thanks so much Linda. I used Attic 24's pattern called Summer Garden Granny Square and just kept adding rounds until it was the same size as my cushion: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/summer-garden-granny-square Hope this helps, J x

June brought us a heatwave and it was a bit too hot for me truth be told - I am much happier in cooler weather. We had 3 consecutive days of temperatures over 30 degrees and as the house felt... Continue reading

Thanks Lyn. I didn't make it (being absolutely rubbish at sewing) but it was made by a friend of mine - she actually made it for my daughter Amy and it had a lovely set of colouring pencils in it but I pinched it when the pencils were worn down to stubs as it is a perfect needle roll!
