    Winter, recycled cashmere, and soup

    We woke to our first frost this morning. It’s very late in the season to only be getting a frost now. It has been the mildest autumn since we moved here with most daytime temperatures in double digits still. For the first time I was a little sad when summer ended as I’ve so enjoyed […]

    Textured Jumper Crochet Pattern

    I have just created my first ever crochet pattern. It’s just for one size, small, but can easily be adjusted to fit larger bodies. It’s quick and easy to crochet and soft and comfy to wear. I reckon it looks pretty good too. Here, below, is my pattern, free to all. Hook size: 8mm Yarn: […]
