W has learnt the power of the tantrum this weekend. It’s been a bit rough really. But in between the screaming, body flailing 1 year old, I’ve been working away with my pointy sticks.

I am officially over halfway through Alana Dakos’ Gnarled Oak from Coastal Knits.


I’m halfway through the second sleeve, in a sublime yarns extra fine merino DK. This is a lovely soft silvery grey, don’t you think? I’m quite taken with it.

Speaking of Coastal Knits, I finally got some reasonable photos of my Rocky Coast, with me in it.


Despite the pilling of the yarn, it’s a lovely warm cardy for pottering around at home.




Look look look! It’s Madeline Tosh! Two delicious skeins of sock yarn. I love this colourway, oxblood. Not sure what I’ll do with it just yet.

Lastly, I’ve been day dreaming about hexipuffs… A plan may be forming.
