Goodness, is it really three weeks already since I last posted? Time really goes too quickly!

I thought I pop in today just to give you a quick update on what I have been working on during these past few weeks. Having to spent a bit of time resting under doctors orders, I was able to catch up on some sock knitting.

First a pair for ‘my girl’. These are from Kerstin Balke’s (@stine_und_stitch) Soxx Book and were a lot of fun to knit. Currently her book is not available in English, but I think there are plan’s for that in the future.

Next up a pair for ‘my man’. My first pair of #scrappyhappysocks using up bits of sock yarn left over from other knitted pairs. I used my trusted Omas Socks pattern for these, it is totally fool proof and is the perfect pattern for anyone wanting to try their hand’s knitting socks for the first time. You can download it HERE.

I got so hooked on scrappy happy socks that I started another pair almost immediately, these may well be a present for someone (Christmas is approaching fast).

At the end of September I went to Yarndale. I hadn’t been for a couple of years and it was fun to catch up with old friends, chatting with new vendors and soaking in the yarny atmosphere.

As well as sock knitting, I have also been busy working on a new design. Remember my Everyday Sweater (Here, there will be a Everyday Cardigan next. This is going to be a series of items that can be made fairly quickly, is simple, yet stylish with a twist and will become your go-to items all year round.

Looking at all of these photos I can see why the last three weeks have flown by, I was just a wee bit busy.

During the next few weeks I will be going on my great adventure traveling to Guatemala. This trip has been a long time coming and as you can imagine, I am so excited. My cases are packed, just a few last minute things to finish and then we are off. We are staying with family and here is one of the gifts I made for the daughter of one of my cousins. All little girls like pink right?!?

You can follow my travels over on Instagram where I will share photos and maybe even the odd video on my Insta Stories.

My travel project will be a new shawl design I have in my head and yesterday I wound the yarn into yummy cakes, ready to take on board the plane to get started. This is beautiful squishy yarn from Antonella of Cosy Posy Yarn in Canada in colours Amber, Siren and Coffee Date. I can’t wait to get started and share photos of progress with you.#madewithloops.co.ukI hope you all have a great October and chat again soon.

Hello friends, I am back!

My summer has been fabulous, full of colour, visits and surprises. I hope your’s has been fabulous too?

At the end of July my ‘little’ sister (Buntes Schaf) came to visit. We did Yarn…

… and sight seeing in London Town.

A visit to Loop and a River Cruise accompanied by fabulous weather, what a great day spent with one of the closest people in my heart.

This year summer in the UK has been hot hot hot and I have been enjoying the garden more than ever.

My hubby’s wild flower garden has given us joy and colour, making for a lovely backdrop enjoyed with cool drinks and knitting.

I have published some new designs (more about this next week or so)…

…finishing it all off with a visit to my homeland.

As you can see, a jam packed couple of months full of colourful fun and joy. It has been great to be able to share with you some of the snapshots of this precious time.

As the evenings draw in and a slight chill is in the air, my favourite time of year is approaching. I am back at work in my studio and look forward to working on new ideas and sharing them here with you over the coming weeks.

Which reminds me…thanks to my hubby, I am now working from my new and made over studio, The Rainbow Room!

See you soon and happy knitting!

XO.

Last week we jetted off to the sun for a few days. It was very much ‘Last minute’, but we all needed a few days away from it all. It was also a big huge mahoosive ‘Well Done’ to ‘our girl’ for landing herself the job of a lifetime.

We all got on a plane to Barcelona, for some Sun, Sangria and Gaudi…

Barcelona 3

Barcelona 4

There really is nothing more relaxing than lazy days spent under endless blue skies by the sea. Laying on your deck chair, listening to the gentle slapping of waves, the occasional boat engine, people laughing, chatting and generally having fun, whilst a subtle whiff of suncream flows your way in the breeze.

Our few days in Barcelona had all the perfect ingredients to feel perfectly chilled by the end of it.

Now back to the studio!

X.
