    Our Cottage Christmas Getaway

    I know it’s not totally unlike me to not write regularly, but just in case you were wondering why I went so silent after my last post, it’s because I’ve been away for the last three weeks! I’ve been blissfully knitting, designing, reading and generally being a big ol’ lazy …

    Sneak Peak: My First Design

    Yup, you read right. I designed a thing… or am in the process of designing a thing, rather.   I’m carefully tiptoeing into the world of design!  I have decided to start off simple, with a nice scarf in a stitch I discovered recently and really loved.  This kept the …
