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!

    Lots of love,
    Julia x x x

  3. It's lovely! The name is perfect. I love the edging but wouldn't add a fringe personally.Happy snuggling :)

  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!

A beautiful day here in Portsmouth. A hint of Spring in the air and the first outdoor spinning of the year.

It felt good to be outside listening to the birds and soaking up the warm sunshine on the deck.

The cats thought so too! Ghetto having a stretch.

Lord Howard(as he is now known!) relaxing! After an hour sitting in the sunshine it was on with my walking boots and off to the sea.

First stop Milton Common, the sky full of Brent Geese chattering as they flew overhead.

The Solent was particularly sparkly today.

The Hard in Old Portsmouth looked higgledy piggledy and colourful.

Then a final treat as I wandered home, a glorious sunset. A day to lift the spirits and make me glad to be alive! Hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful weekend too. 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…
