Yarn Along

I have 2 of these little portal windows in my lounge and I love looking out of them this time of year because our grape vine has started to fruit and the green leaves shine through the window, oh my, it’s a wonderful green, the green that sends your heart racing…

My yarn has arrived from Nurturing Fibres for me to knit my Warthog pattern. I just love the subtle colour variations that just say warthog to me. The test knit will be opening soon for this pattern over on my Mamma4earth Raverly group.

As soon as this pattern goes live, once it has been test knitted, I will be offering a giveaway for the yarn and the pattern to a few readers, I am so excited to do this:) I will keep you updated.


Two other yarns arrived last Friday, there is that green again, I bought it from Betwixt, such gorgeous yarn, it’s a handpainited Merino / Silk / Kid Mohair. These skeins are going to be knitted into cowls, I can’t wait!

Joining today with Ginny.

What are you busy working on?


Escaping the Heat…









We are experiencing a heat wave here at the moment, it’s almost 30 degrees C inside our home, it’s hot! This morning began with early swimming, the pool was so warm and Kye spent his time outside running between the trampoline and the pool.

I am almost over all the damage and destruction from the freak hail storm, our plants have started to recover and the poor little raspberries and loganberries have given us a small show of fruit. Our pumpkin seedlings went into the ground right before the storm but survived and because they grew so well on the veg garden roof last year, this year we have placed them in small, deep beds next to our flatlet in the garden. The flatlet has a flat roof and we are going to let them sprawl all over up there. I think they will do well. Our potatoes are almost ready to be dug up and I will keep you updated about the ones we grew in pots.

Charlie, Erin’s cat, the ginger giant in the above photos, loves water, he will lie down in shallow puddles, so, naturally when the lawn sprinklers were switched off this morning, he rushed over to walk and play in the water…

We are back into the full swing of making veggie and fruit juices, Kye LOVES helping me with this activity and enjoys drinking the juice, he is a very picky eater, so I am incredibly grateful he will drink this juice.

PS If you haven’t entered the giveaway from Steph for a pair of lovely children’s potty training pants, go here
