A busy last couple of days creatively as the weather gets very cold with freezing cold rain. I bought this lovely owl jersey material and am very pleased as have made a dress out of it. The secret is to use a knit foot and a double needle. I have also been winding more wool for the poncho I am knitting…this always reminds me of when I was younger and I used to help my mum winding her wool. Yesterday I made a hot pot trivet using pegs..its under the cup in the picture
I made lost of cards at the weekend to sell at chapel..check out the presents challenge at Seize the Birthday. I am trying to use up papers I have had for ages.
I received an email off The Simple Things with a download all about hygge..intrigued I decided to buy the book and I love it. As you can see my sons have been helping me make lots of comforting cakes and I made some soup and bread yesterday just watching a candle while it was stormy outside. Love the concept of hygge…a slowing down, meditative, comforting for the self process.
