trees…etcetera

dear diary,

This week saw the return of winter with arctic temperatures at night, frosty mornings, snow blizzards and icy winds from Siberia. No signs of spring left apart from bright blue skies and sunshine amidst wintry showers.

I took this opportunity to take some photos of trees. I have always loved trees. In summer to lie under them looking up into their amazing canopy and dreaming of places far away, in winter I love their starkness against blue skies and winter sunshine.

Whilst on this photo shoot with trees I also found plenty of other inspiration which I applied to sample knitting when I was back in the warmth of my studio later.

As you can see, even during this rather stark and colourless time of year one can find plenty of inspiration. Always walk around with eyes wide open and having a camera with you helps of course.

I have also been busy making more squares for ‘my girls’ blanket. I leave you with this weeks fruit of crochetnesses…
