The Aestlight shawl is finished at last! It was so wonderful to knit and I think I am ready for another shawl, but this time it won’t take quite as long to finish…
I don’t know what it is about shawls, but I find them wonderfully cozy, warm and especially comforting when they are wrapped around my shoulders…

Linking with Ginny over at Small Things for the yarn along.
Reading, A Farm in My Heart, such a wonderful book.


I am almost finished my Aestlight Shawl, I’m busy with the lace edging at the moment, it’s amazing knitting the lace perpendicular to the shawl edge, so clever…Once I am finished I will block it so that it lies flat. I do love this shawl and hopefully, I’ll be able to show you photos of the finished item next week:)
This week so far I have made my own natural general cleaner for our home from a book called Make Your Place and soon I want to attempt to make soap, if anyone has any recipe suggestions, I would love to hear them:)
Irises are appearing all over the garden at the moment, attracting plenty of bees to pollinate our fruit trees.
I am linking up with Ginny’s Yarn Along today.

Have a peaceful day,


Aestlight Shawl

This is one of my unfinished projects, the Aestlight Shawl, it has been just over a year since I have picked up this particular project, I loved knitting it up until this point and then I can’t actually remember why, but I stopped and left it neatly folded in one of my knitting baskets, forgotten… This week, as I walked through my wool room, I noticed it, patiently lying there waiting for me to finally finish it. I took it out of the basket and started to knit the lace section, it has had my complete focus and attention the entire morning. It’s a beautiful pattern and available on Ravelry for download! Do you find there are some projects that you leave unfinished for months… years even…and then you return to them and finish them without batting an eye?? I think this is going to be one of them:) I have always wanted to knit a shawl and I am loving the process now, a year later…
I am knitting the shawl in Nurturing Fibres, hand dyed sock wool, called Agapanthus.

Have a restful weekend,


We have been having a wonderful weekend. Sandy has settled in well and LOVES water as you can see. She runs in the sprinklers and becomes totally drenched.
And then when she is finished playing, she passes out and has a nap…
We are enjoying all the varied bird life in the garden at the moment.

Asparagus for dinner? Yip from our very own garden:) I love that we can just go outside the kitchen door and pick our food:) Makes me happy…

We divided and replanted all of our Irises, (about 500 + plants) two years ago and this year they are giving us a beautiful show… It is almost time to divide again.

Our Oak tree is green!
The Wisteria is magnificent down the side wall of our home…

My Aestlight Shawl is almost finished, I am just busy with the lacy edge.

I can’t wait to knit another shawl:) Any suggestions?
Happy Sunday
