I didn’t think I would be typing a blog after a week that it has been too warm to wear any of my knitwear. I can now understand how my friends feel who love knitting but live in temperatures like we have experienced or even hotter for more than a week.

A little bit of a mix on my blog today, nature, a sleeping photographer and an update of my knitted thistles have been my source of inspiration to share with you today. Formal gardens, neatly trimmed lawns, box hedges, keep on the path can sometimes halt our steps and take away the beauty in simplicity that some see as unwanted yet I see their beauty.

When I reflect on my love of hand knitting I realise that the twist of stitches pulls me into a vortex of vanishing hours, carefree. After the complexities of Geiger, I found the simplicity of a pullover from Brooklyn Tweed's archives

Perhaps it will surprise anyone who reads my blog to discover today’s post won’t be verbose, despite the fact I have thoughts to share but those will have to remain in my head and notes until I recoup a lot of energy that I lost last night after I went out with dad to take a few shots of Geiger.
