Today I’m doing a little post to share a couple of snippets from my week. Visiting: We called down to our new favourite place, Rowallane Gardens on Saturday. We didn’t visit the formal gardens, instead we took a walk along the woodland route. It was just beautiful and autumnal plus there was a definite drop in temperature… Continue reading Midweek waffle
I’ve been enjoying knitting my socks and baby cardigans that I thought it was time I try and knit a full sized garment for myself. I’ve been building up my Ravelry library of things I’d love to knit/crochet and at Yarnfolk in the summer I bought some beautiful merino wool/silk skeins with the aim of… Continue reading My Worsted Boxy Sweater

It’s been a bit quiet on the blog front but I just wanted to share with you my new YouTube podcast. I subscribe to a number of yarny podcasts (which are so inspiring), so recently I decided that it might be fun to do a little podcast of my own. If you have 13 minutes… Continue reading Jean the Creative Pixie Podcast!
