I'll admit I'm really not comfortable in front of the camera. When working on my recent Design Boobook Trail it was the thought of posing for the photos that held me up. For some reason, and I'm sure many of you can relate to this, as soon as a camera is pointed at me any natural ability I may have to move gracefully, smile or look natural goes out the window.
I was kindly gifted this absolutely beautiful pattern Cranberry Autumn by Alicia Plummer to test one of my latest colourways, Winter Plain. I love the care and attention that Alicia puts into her work, the pattern comes complete with her Grandma’s recipe for Cranberry Pork which is a lovely, personal touch.
Knit a few rows, pick some lavender, knit knit knit.. I love summer holidays.
One of my favourite pastimes is picking the fragrant lavender we have growing in our garden. It’s been so hot here this last week that the flowers have dried over night so now the house smells lovely and lavendery.
