Cheeky cat in my knitting bag #woolthief #catsofinstagram

Ingrid was very intrigued by this woman riding a bike in high heels #yanksweekend2018 #theyanksarebackinsaddleworth

First time watching the parade in Uppermill for the #yanksweekend2018 #theyanksarebackinsaddleworth

Aaaaaargh!!! Needle tip pulled off cord, stitches everywhere. #knittingdisaster

Inspired by @weftblown and her stick weaving yesterday I thought we would have a go ourselves today. I took it far too seriously, Ingrid went freestyle and Erika snapped her twig and went to play with jigsaws instead. Still, it kept us entertained for an hour or so. #weaving #craftingwithchildren #summerholidays

Even in unpredictable weather the beaches were amazing #Orkney

Today’s holiday spam is from our trip to the Brough of Birsay and features a Viking settlement, a lighthouse, a tidal causeway and my first groatie buckie (sp?). Not shown is me panicking at the top of the hill because people were stood within 100m of a cliff edge. #orkney #broughofbirsay

I did a bit of shopping locally too, it wasn’t all wool though. I got some locally made soap because I am powerless to resist patchouli, some beremeal biscuits because they are essentially exotic shortbread and a bag of beremeal (plus recipe booklet) from Barony Water Mill in Birsay because it’s fun baking with new ingredients and Paul that did the mill tour was ace. #orkney #northronaldsaywool #baronymill #birsay #beremeal #breedspecificyarn

I didn’t just Knit in a yurt I also took it with me where ever we went and managed to find time to fit in a bit of knitting and spinning on various beaches. #placesyoucanknit #placesyoucanspin #knitting #orkney #turtlemadespindles

More playing about on beaches, this time next to one of the Churchill barriers. You can even see the sunken ships they used to block the channel in the First World War. #Orkney

The view from the campsite and playing about in rock pools at Kirkhouse point #orkney #southronaldsay

2 weeks away from the allotment and it has gone a bit wild! Bumper harvest though, all I need to do now is find 101 recipes for giant courgettes! #allotment #growyourown
