Look at this! I finally finished the briochealicious shawl I’ve been working on for the last few weeks. I am in love with how it turned out. It’s huge and squishy and super warm and cozy. Today it’s been freezing cold, the rain has been pouring, and can you guess what I’ve wrapped myself up in? Yep. That shawl. I’ve developed a massive crush on brioche stitch. I seriously cannot get enough of it right now! There are a bunch…

Knitting lately

Mail days are my favourite. Especially yarny mail days. Malabrigo sent me a package of some suuuper squishy delicious yarn last week and each skein is so damn pretty. The two featured above are “Finito” in the coffee toffee and mostaza colourways. I actually chose them to go together, but after seeing them in person I think definitely not! These are the sort of times when I am so frustrated by being colourblind. Everything looks similar, and it can be…

So, here’s some photos

Yesterday evening. As the sun was setting (and it did, fast, we barely caught the light), down at the river. I just wanted to take some photos, just because. I’m going to ride this creative train for as long as it hangs around this time. My two littlest sprites were my inspiration of the day.   Look at those big chocolatey brown eyes. So deep. The pair of them. Sisters. Best friends. And this is just the cutest. Zoe’s selfie! I love it…

Well hey, it’s the weekend

    Ahh Autumn, where are you? The warm is still hanging around… I so badly want it to be chilly enough to need to snuggle down in bed with some knitting, but it’s warm, so what can you do? Well, I’m still knitting (of course), but instead of snuggling down, we’ve been having a massive clean-up around the house. Funny, we don’t spring-clean around here, but we definitely autumn-clean! We’ve taken many bags of too-small clothes to the opshop, keeping…

It’s been awhile…

I feel like I almost need to reintroduce myself, it’s been that long since I last posted! Suffice to say life got in the way and blogging fell to the wayside. Jumping straight back in seems like the only way I’m ever going to get back into the habit, so here goes nothing! You may also notice a few changes to the blog layout – I’ve been playing a little bit so if anything looks off, let me know in the…

Piper at the adventure playground

Tamworth recently got a fun new playground (a big deal in this regional area!) inside of the Marsupial park, so we decided to go and check it out. I haven’t done nearly enough fun “little” things with the kids lately, and even though the big kids were all at school, I figured it would be nice to spend some one-on-one time with Piper doing something other than grocery shopping / coffee / going to the gym. I really, really need to remind…

Waiting for Spring ?>

Waiting for Spring

Two more sleeps until Spring.. naturally I am looking forward to the warmer weather and longer days. I’m ready for the “freshness” of Spring. For some flowers and sunshine. For trying to get things back on track. The start of Spring feels like as good a time as any to make some changes. After completely losing my photography mojo for months I think I may slowly, slowly slowly, be feeling the inspiration hit again. I dusted (yes, literally had to…

Hello again ?>

Hello again

Sigh. My poor little neglected blog. Just one of many things in a long line of things that have fallen by the wayside in the last several months. I’ve been completely.. overwhelmed. A little depressed. A little manic (it cycles in severity, but with two medication changes things were pretty terrible for a couple of months there). Busy as anything. Blogging sadly just got shoved aside and I kept telling myself I’ll update soon… even if it’s just a photo…

Rainflower the Unicorn pattern release ?>

Rainflower the Unicorn pattern release

Who doesn’t love a magical Unicorn? Rainflower is a mystical Unicorn with a beautiful long flowing mane and tail. She loves to daydream and brings sunshine and sparkles wherever she goes. I designed the Rainflower Unicorn pattern  at the request of my little girls – they’ve been bugging me for a Unicorn for the longest time! I just love how she turned out. My favourite part comes after the knitting is complete – creating that flowing mane and tail is…

Yikes. It’s been nearly a month since my last post. And there I was hoping to actually stay caught up and stuff. Oh well. Life gets in the way. Regardless, I’ve been knitting lots and lots and lots (and not only shop orders this time!) and even have a little bit of stash enhancement to show off. Fair warning, this post is pretty photo-heavy. First of all, some socks I am knitting in absolutely gorgeous Hedgehog Fibres  in the Cabaret…
