Yarn. Socks. Twilight.

I love knitting socks.

I love The Knitting Goddess yarn. Seriously, this lovely indy dyer is responsible for my obsession with sock yarn (and most of my stash)

I love Twilight. Books, films - I can't get enough.

This Sock Club is the combination of all my favourite things! There will be gorgeous colourways and patterns inspired by Twilight and lovely stitch markers

Places are going fast - come and join us in the Knitting Goddess Ravelry Group

I'm not a domestic goddess - but I am trying...

This is juice I made with stuff which grew in the garden - apples and pears (they grow by themselves every year, I don't have to do anything) and beetroot (I planted the seeds and grew these on purpose).

This is the first year I have tried to grow vegetables in a semi-proper fashion and it has been a success (kind of). I have learnt some valuable lessons and will be better next year.

Carrots, beetroot, radish, salad leaves, cucumber, courgette and green beans were the winners.

Kale and broccoli were annihilated by caterpillars.

I left it too late for butternut squash and runner beans and I'm not sure these are going to be big enough before the cold weather comes.

The jury is out on the peppers and aubergines.

Brand New.

Welcome to my blog!

I'll be posting about my knitting and anything else that catches my eye......

There's some exciting stuff coming soon, I promise.

(Well, it's exciting if you like knitting, if you don't like knitting it's probably mildly interesting at best)
