The small things.....

Gorgeous treats arriving in the post purchased from The Wool Barn
and a tiny dress using some favourite yarn left overs
(so fortunate that I only need around 20g as I have a whole basket full to turn into a new wardrobe!)

Love these little stitch markers with fine flexible loops
purchased from RosyRetro on Etsy...perfect for small projects

Beautiful yarn purchased from Hedgerow Yarns for the
(raising funds for Marie Curie UK)
...which amongst other things has created this little dress...
(I love the pretty mix of colours here)
...more to come about the stripy dresses...

...and how lovely are these?....only £1 a bunch from the town florist
(I think blue flowers of any kind have to be my favourite)

...busy with my yarn and needles...
 (it's definitely the small things that make a day)
...and the weather turning a definite autumnal is inspiring me
to make lots of plans for the coming months...
As some of you will have seen who follow on Instagram...
(and thank you so much for the lovely likes and so many kind comments x)
...I have some little cats in the making... 
who will be around very soon

For anyone who intends to purchase the pattern
there will be an introductory discount when published


It's been lots of fun putting this pattern together
which is now complete and having some final checks

Butterfly and bird buttons are just the thing for a Cat Pinafore,
don't you think?

Happy Creating

Back soon

(Almost) too hot to knit ..

Only a little knitting progress here over the last few days due to some really hot weather 
(although, thankfully it does seem that it may finally be subsiding next week ... 
meaning knitting productivity can then resume in full flow again ... fingers crossed ;-)

While waiting for temperatures to drop a little it's been a good opportunity to 
begin some major tidying and reorganisation of my work space ...

... and this time I'm determined to keep it this way ... although more shelves may be needed 
if only for an ever growing collection of 'The Knitter' magazine ... so many ... 
but I like to browse through them in quiet moments and so they are all staying with me...

He seems happy in his new place ...

Tiny buttons and sewing needles are now in mini cases and jars ...

Vintage beehive wool holders have a new home too
... and all the drawers are slowly being reorganised ...

... Baking with Ashley ...
(a really lovely carrot cake recipe which we often make from 'The Primrose Bakery Book')
... highly recommended by everyone here ...
Choosing paint for our living room ... never an easy decision, is it?

... Candle making ...

Herbs suddenly springing to life on our kitchen window sill
... and they've grown so much more than this in the last few days...
a happy surprise after quietly sleeping for so long!


... writing and photographing the new pattern ...
it's well on the way now 

If you live in our corner
 I hope you're managing to keep cool in such very hot weather 
It definitely slows down my knitting progress
(and I must admit to being a bit of an autumnal soul myself ;-) )

... spending lots of time in my favourite place by 
beautiful Lake Windermere...

Time to go

is now available on

To celebrate the launch of the new pattern 
there's a 20% discount

19th - 31st March 2018 (GMT)

I've been a busy knitting bee so there are plenty of ideas for pinafores and cardigans
(perfect for all those really lovely sock yarn oddments that are just too good to throw away
...knit yourself a complete mini wardrobe!)

Hopefully we're going to be seeing lots of cosy bears and dolls
...definitely needed here at the moment with all our snow....

More details about the new pattern are included in individual listings

Happy Knitting

Cosy knitting...

Happily embracing and appreciating these last slow days of winter.
I may not always enjoy the bitter cold or the poor northern light but then 
all is forgiven with the glow from a candle 

I finding that slowing down often results in more progress being made
(happily!) and a more satisfying outcome along the way x

(yes...we're all keeping cosy here!)

...and for those who have asked about the little pinafores and cardigans
I'm hoping to publish the pattern towards the end of next week and
I'm going to add the mini scarf project too as a supplement as it's great fun
and I know some of you would like to knit one. 
It's perfect to pop in your pocket on tiny needles if you 
like to keep your hands busy when out and about (like me :-) )

I'm only hoping the weather warms up a little before our trip 
at the fingers crossed 🤞🏻

x Keep Cosy x

Happy New Week
