 It's been awhile since I posted on here. I have been using Instagram and Facebook as it is so immediate and easy to do on my phone. Tut tut.

So here are a few things that we have been doing over the last few weeks. I finally finished the hand knitted cushion with crochet motifs from Jane Crowfoot's book Homespun Vintage. Knitted and crocheted in Rowan's Cotton Glace.

This scarf has been the project of the season. It is our own easy pattern, quick to knit, with a furry pom pom at each end. It takes x 2 balls Rowan Alpaca Chunky - pattern, yarn and pom poms all available at Jolie.

So, we have both been enjoying a little bit of Scandi inspired knitting. Linda did this lovely cushion in Rowan Brushed Fleece and I am still working on a fair isle cowl from Eline Oftedal's book, Nordic Knits.  I changed the colours and yarn and chose to work it in Rowan Lima, which is soooo soft.

And finally, Linda made this beautiful patchwork throw, worked in gigantic Rowan Alpaca Chunky squares.

I think we have been fairly busy - not to mention the hooded cardi's we have both done and several pom pom hats and scarves too.

Does my hat look big in this?

Sue has been madly beavering away with an 'If it's' blanket, ie if it's there, I'll use it. She crocheted this amazing snuggle blanket with odds and ends, donations from friends and a hook the size of a recorder. It is now over 8 feet long and draped over husband Greg just to try it for size. I think it's nearly there!
