Happy things...

♥ ♥ ♥

I love my dpns and these are a lovely new addition to my knitting bag...KnitPro Nova...
...sitting untried in my cupboard for quite some time but now a firm favourite...

...places to store tiny doll buttons...my mini Bonne Maman jam jars are perfect!
(I used to keep them separated in the tallboy drawers of the dolls' house but was forever spilling them)
...now I just need to buy more jam ;-) ...

Chickadee from Quince & Co.
 ...it's definitely been added to my favourites list...smooth, soft, plump and springy...ooh, so lovely...
(purchased here )

...and after much deliberation on how best to block my cowl ...
my favourite steaming method worked beautifully as I wanted to keep the lovely texture of the
cables and the neatness of the seed stitch edging but open out the central lace pattern more
..maintain the lovely soft plumpness of the yarn 

 (I love the sculpted quality of small rope cables)
Pattern is Warble by Bonnie Sennot 

...a pink vintage Bakelite Beehive Wool holder to add to my growing collection!
(very happy that it has the original handle too ;-) )

Carrots from Abel and Cole...xx

...I love their box of goodness sitting at our front door every Friday...
(a happy weekly ritual over recent years)

♥ ♥ ♥
Hopefully you've had a good start to September...
(my favourite time of year)
I'm busy here putting the new bears pattern together (boys this week)
so I thought I'd take a few little snapshots of current favourite things
 in between taking pattern pics...I'm never without my camera and needles at the moment!

♥ ♥ ♥

..and before I go ...
I must mention too that the Tearoom is now on
...if anyone would like to say hello it would be so lovely to see you!...
(slowly finding my way around ;-)  )

Wishing you a good new week


P.S ...nothing sponsored ... just things I love x
