Felicity II

Another Felicity beanie, this time knitted up for my cousin. This is a wonderful pattern, knits up quickly and is the perfect project for a beginner. Ravelled here.

Kidsilk Cowl

This is a really simple knit, using 3 colours of kidsilk haze and interchanging the colours to give a subtle colour block. I was a little concerned that this would be one of those projects that hung around for a while but it knitted up quite quickly. The finished cowl is like a cloud, so …

I ordered the pattern from Quince & Co, along with two balls of tern. Calico & Ivy stock a gorgeous brushed suri alpaca from frog tree yarns, it is so wonderfully soft …


daily green : recipe

The last few months have seen me make a concerted effort to eat lots of greens on a daily basis. I’m a big salad girl but sometimes time gets away from me and on those days I whip up a green drink. There is nothing quite like whacking a few ingredients into a food processor …
