Winter wishes

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready and waiting for those crisp winter days to settle in. This mild autumn has made the thought of dark nights and bitter cold days all the more tantalising. 336 more words

From Wool To Sweater

Last winter was very very cold. My poor dog was pretty cold on her walks so I decided that next winter she needed a sweater. I didn’t want too nice of yarn since it is for Angel to go outside in so I found some easy to spin, unwashed wool at Mind’s Eye in Boston, MA. 548 more words

Knitting is always greener on the other side of the needle....

sigh. I am knitting multiple items at once and want to start already the next one….darn. Keep focussing!! Luckily, I am missing the correct needle size to start that sweater, and I am avoiding the haberdashery section on purpose. 64 more words

Shark Tooth Shawl

This pattern is the love child of several scarves/shawls I’ve made over the past couple of years – most notably Wingspan and Hitcher. I wanted something small and lightweight, easy to tuck into a coat or wear around the shoulders in the chilly airconned office in summer. 98 more words

The most wonderful time of the year

I love Autumn. I love the colours, I love all the leaves on the tress falling, I love walks in the woods, I love wearing jumpers and boots, I love sitting indoors all warm and cozy when it is raining and windy outside, I love fireworks and bonfires, and most of all I love the lead up to Christmas. 331 more words
