Finished!


What a marathon that turned out to be!
 Finally I've finished my scarf, I can't count how many adjustments I've done. 
But here it is and I have to say I'm very pleased with it. 
What do you think?
I can't wait to wrap up in it. I'm calling it my,

 Up on the moors scarf.

 The colours remind me of the wonderful windswept 
Cornish landscapes covered in heather and gorse.









I had trouble choosing the edging, eventually choosing a picot edge with bobbles on each end.
Now tell me.
Do you think it needs a fringe?
I just can't decide.

  1. oh that's lovely! The picot edge is very cute, maybe fringe would be too much...

  2. Hello Sue!

    I popped over to give you the link to those mary janes shoes, as they do them in a most delicious violet shade...but I got sidetracked by your gorgeous crochet! I love the colours of your new scarf and the edging sets it off just right! OOoh before I forget, here's the link to the shoes!

  4. Sue I love this scarf! I agree the title is just right, coming from Yorkshire I have a great affection for the moors, I wonder what adjustments you had to make, and would love to see how it looks on you :0)
    With this weather at the moment, you still can use a snuggle scarf!

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.


That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥

Back in the zone

Hello So it's been a while but I think it's safe to say that I'm back in the zone! The spinning wheel is out and I'm loving it. Loving the calm rhythmic movement of fibre flowing through my fingers, watching the bobbins fill with gorgeous colour, enjoying the meditative process that spinning is. I've been spinning some beautiful Alpaca and silk that I dyed AGES ago. It's very soft and fluffy but spins up really well wanting to be thin and sophisticated.

I've also been admiring this beauty, I know a rainbow landed on the rug! It's Milk Fibre, it take dye amazingly well, it's incredibly fine and slippery. I tried spinning it 'neat' but it proved impossible so I'm carding it with Merino.

What do you think?


I'm really pleased, I'm a carding newbie but again it's a wonderful process which I find completely absorbing.

I'm planning on carding each rainbow colour separately I'll let you know how it goes.
So how are you all? Hopefully f…

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.






I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!


Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥
