Yippee, I've received my reward for supporting @baabaabrighouse Kickstarter bricks and mortar shop campaign! It's beautiful yarn - Baa Baa Brew in Hove Edge, 100% Bluefaced Leicester DK and I'm looking forward to trying this out. Good luck with the shop, Elaine x

Rickety jetty across the saltmarsh at Mersea Island. There is a sign warning the unwary to use at your own risk, and I can confirm that some of the planks are not as strong and stable as they at first appear. πŸ˜‚

Here's my sugar skull sock WIP from @surfingducks Day of the Dead socks pattern. This is one of those designs that I wish I'd thought of - it's a brilliant idea. πŸ˜πŸ˜šπŸ’€ #hiddenheels #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #socks #knittedsocks #skull #sugarskull #igknitters

Love the addition of a contrast edging on this Polder! #Repost from @unicornknitdesigns with ... I'm just in love with this very out of season cowl that I finished this week. @aknitaway might recognise the Drops edging! Main colour is Ginger's hand dyed alpaca from @gingertwiststudio and pattern is Polder by @annidomino a perfect marriage of yarn and pattern. #knittersofinstagram #fibreshare #knitting #handknitcowl #knittinglove #makersgonnamake #knitstagram #handknit #ebbandflow

I was incredibly restrained at #pomfest2017 yesterday - just 3 skeins and a pouch! But there was so much more to the day than buying. I caught @olgajazzyknits talk about creating 3D knits and also the fascinating round table discussion Crafting Consciously. And I met such lovely people including Verity from @baarameweknits @scullywully @woollywormhead @knittingimage @brityarn and @surfingducks among others. Brilliant day. Thanks to @pompommag x

Train knitting on my way to #pomfest2017 Save me some yarn, guys!

I visited the wonderful Lauriston Farm again today. The biodynamic celestial garden is looking great, and I loved these giant cabbages with their veined leaves and tiny water beads!
Look out for some new vegetable inspired knits from me later this summer! 🌱 😁

I put this mini display up for the open studios event on Sunday. It shows the Tyrolean cardi I worked on with the support of @knitsirdar who designed the original garment and @knitnow magazine. I reworked the vintage pattern for a current yarn and in a range of modern sizes and we rewrote the instructions to include step-by-step photos of how to work the stitch pattern.
But that's not the end of the story for this garment. It'll soon be going off to it's final home ... more news soon! 😎

Hey look who visited my little studio today! Thanks so much for coming along @georgiafarrelldesign Looking forward to seeing your studio in September x

The view from my studio window right now 😁 Loving this open studios event.
