During the run-up to Christmas and New Year, I've been busy making linen spa mitts for gifts. I decided to practise my crochet skills (which are not very developed) rather than knit them. I tried out a new-to-me block stitch, which I was quite happy with. I chose the natural sport weight and the Bliss pale blue colour way. Please contact me if you're interested in the pattern.
Happy New Year to you all!
We finally moved in to our new home end November. We are now living on the beautiful Isle of Wight off the south coast of England, a few yards from the sea on top of the cliff in Sandown. Here are a few photos taken down by the sea a short walk from our house. It wasn't very sunny on the days these were taken, but you can see the steely blue of the November sea and the moody skies. I will try to post some brighter, sunnier photos in the Spring and Summer.
And finally, a few of our hand-dyed linen yarns to add a splash of colour!
