WIP Wednesday and Yarn Along



Kye and Charlie


I’ve been spinning some Wensleydale fibre for the Tour de Fleece, I love the long draw of Wensleydale, it’s so easy to spin up and fast too! Richard returned from Spain and the UK yesterday, it feels like he was away forever and it’s SO good to have him home again, the kids are thrilled to see their dad!

Kye loves to go out into the sun and jump on his trampoline, he goes out at least  five or six times a day to bounce and as soon as Charlie sees him going out, he races out to join him.

Jen’s camel silk gloves are coming along nicely, I chose the Treads, a Tipless Gloves Pattern, isn’t it gorgeous?? It’s a free pattern on Ravelry and I love it.

My Moulin Rouge Cowl test knit is going well, some beautiful yarns being knitted up into cowls!

Hope you are having a wonderful week.

WIP Wednesday




Real Meal Revolution

I’m almost finished the cowl I’ve been working on, I love this yarn, and the colour. It’s a nice easy pattern and once you get into the rhythm, it becomes a wonderful meditation, repeating round after round, producing a lovely textured piece. I can’t wait to put this up on the test knit group. My flu is almost gone, thank goodness and now I can get back to focussing on my knitting. Oh yes, before I forget, the yarn is from Nurturing Fibres, it’s called Moulin Rouge, double knit singles.  I think the name and the colour compliment one another well.

I’ve been reading aloud to Kye from these books above, they were my readers when I was in primary school. Does anyone remember these books?? They are so sweet. How can it be so long ago already?

I’m reading Real Meal Revolution again, it’s very interesting and informative. I want to improve the general health of our family. We’ve all been really ill lately and I do feel strongly that the food we eat has a direct impact on overall health.

WIP Wednesday


This little goat is a custom knit for someone in Canada, he is off travelling across the Atlantic Ocean to his new home right now. His pattern is available in my shop, I custom knit too:)

Sadie Horse

Sadie, will be added to my shop later today, she was knitted and made by Jenna.

Sherper Hat

I have been working on my Sherpa Hat design. I knitted it in Lopi Yarn and now I am going to re-knit it in a Nurturing Fibres Aran weight yarn. I am going to knit Erin one for her birthday on Monday. Shhh don’t say a word:) This design, reflects the mountains on the sides of the hat and Sherpa tents that would be put up during long mountain expeditions, so I thought, the Sherpa Hat was a fitting name. Kye graciously agreed to model it for me.

Autumn Sky Cowl 1

Thank you so much to everyone who offered to test knit the Autumn Sky Cowl pattern, the test knit is now full and is well underway on my Ravelry group.

Our weather is really cooling down here quite a lot, soon it will be time to light fires in the early mornings and evenings. I love sitting near the fire and knitting, I’m really looking forward to that.

Reading: The Lord of the Rings.

WIP Wednesday and Yarn Along… Lavender Flowers…


I love Lavender, it’s one of my favourite flowers and has so many uses. There are many different varieties growing all over our garden. I add the essential oils to our homemade cleaners and also add a few drops to the vinegar that I add to soften our clothing in the washing machine. A few drops on a Lavender pillow will help you to fall asleep and can also soothe headaches…

The new Lavender we planted has been growing so well in our pot on our veranda, even a few tomatoes have started to sprout all on their own. I was inspired to knit up this Lavender flower yesterday and I have added the pattern to my flower ebook. I am so excited to share it with you. I have almost finished and will be sending the document off the the publishers next week. Then it should be available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the Apple store etc.. after just a few days.

Happy Yarn Along to you 🙂
