it's Friday night and I'm loving....

being selected for a stall at Woolfest 2012...Wow! so exited! it's a great honour and a HUGE opportunity...no excuses now... get into my studio and get making...



another Wow...the Wonder of Wool...a fab exhibition currently on at gallery@Rheged... knitting as contemporary art...go take a look... it's amazing...plus some great workshops ...not to mention guerilla knitting...love it!


just wanting to feel warm and cosy indoors today...thinking woolly thoughts...thought I'd share my christmas knitting with you...now it's safely over...I  knitted and knitted wristwarmers and mug warmers and scarves...and really enjoyed creating old fashioned new fashion homemade pressies...and then photo'd them on my vintage patterns...


 


such lovely quaint headgear...




the two chunky  mug warmers made for gardening friends..with essential advice on planting... and drinking tea... by the moon's cycles...great to think it'll soon be time to get planting seeds again...

sharing some of my favourite knitting blogs...full of inspiration...

little theorem with some yummy patterns including great wristwarmers and this gorgeous flowing cardigan


handknitted things...just love these iconic houses which remind me of our trip to the Isle of Lewis..

 

 ah..to dream of summer...
  
and the delicious patterns on quince and co...positively edible textures and colours and home grown yarns... so beautifully photographed...
 
...coincidentally just featured in the new Mollie Makes...how on trend are we??

and last but not least...our birthday giveaway birdie brooches...don't forget to leave a comment by 14th February to win one...
