Hello...

Hello.
I knew at the beginning of the year that I wanted to let go of the blog. I am in a different place now and I need the space to work through a great many things. I intend to keep the archives up for a time, although I have removed the comment function.
If you have landed here - welcome and feel free to dip in to what was our life - once upon a time...

Yarn Along - Summer 2013


Joining in with Ginny for Yarn Along today, knitting in beautiful places, with a beautiful friend. I have cast on this sweater for James, using the Sublime organic merino from my stash. 


I have finished the Flowers in the Snow blanket for Breagha, and added a pink border to    finish it off. I am really pleased with this - I love the effect of the bright splashes of colour against the white. Definitely one to do again.


Not much reading going on here, in these busy days. I have a few books waiting in the wings for cooler days and darker evenings, but I was thrilled to come across this fantastic pile of vintage Ladybird books in the charity shop for 10p each. James and I have started working through the pile, beginning last night with Cleopatra and Ancient Egypt.


Couldn't resist another shot of Breagha snuggled up in her Grandma made blanket.  xxx

  7. Beautiful images, every one of them. Of course, Breagha wrapped up in her lovely new blanket, is the best of all!

    I am amazed that you were able to find those little books for 10p each. That would never happen in New York.

  15. so much goodness. love the blanket and how colorful it is ... love the wool that you have started for James ... love the picture of your lovely Breagha and I absolutely love the ladybird books ... I grew up on them; if I found any in a charity shop, I would probably become quite emotional and might start having a bit of a sniffle right there in the shop. they are fantastic.
