It feels like I've been working on these latest patterns forever. In truth I think it's just over a year but there have been a lot of distractions that have required I spend my time on other things and so... Continue reading

Hello again, hope you're well. Sorry that I've not been around much lately. The children have had a lot of time off school recently because of an odd arrangement of the Easter holidays and although they went back on Monday... Continue reading

It's been longer than planned since I last wrote a post here, but life sometimes gets in the way and half term was busy. Amy had a wonderful time in New York (despite being there for the coldest Valentine's day... Continue reading

Well, here we are on the cusp of another school break. As seems to be the way lately the days have been zipping by in a blur without an awful lot seeming to get done. There has been a fair... Continue reading

Thanks Julie. It's a surround to a hatchway between the kitchen and the dining room - it was here when we moved in and we've changed lots around the house but I kind of like it so it has stayed.

It's not just you Annie, I too have a bag of yarns that is mentally labelled 'what was I thinking?' or things that I bought thinking they'd be a certain colour and they weren't. I am a terrible hoarder when it comes to yarn! I can definitely recommend the cosy pattern.

Hi Jo. I can't remember off hand which yarns I used, I have it jotted down somewhere and will have to look it out when I write up their descriptions (I have a rather disorganised and non-linear way of working unfortunately). I'm pretty sure at least one of them is Rowan British sheep breeds but I can't remember the colourway and I have a feeling it's been discontinued.

Thanks Vicki. Yes, the linen is lovely to knit with but I'd not want to do anything to complicated with it - it would be hard work to cable with I think. I didn't sew the lining of the basket - it's just full of lots of cloth project bags which makes it look that way :)

Thanks skeindalous, I wanted a vase that I could keep on the table year round and fill with different things depending on the season. This one came from Graham and Green...http://www.grahamandgreen.co.uk/alba-ceramic-vase (it's the smaller size)

Thanks Sarah, yes I was lucky to find a supplier here in the UK as I've wanted some of those spotty Art Viva needles for ages!

It's not so good unfortunately Lynsey, it's a bit too thin for jumpers and Fair Isle dresses but it works fine on a single colour bunny dress.

How are you doing so far this year? Are you on track with any New Years resolutions or have you, like me, already slipped from your aims before the end of the first month? Actually, I didn't really have any... Continue reading
