All in knitalong

Nature inspires me

Today I have set aside a little time to share photos I have taken this week on our evenings out to escape the heat. My first photo is actually of one of my current knitting projects, the lace weight top called Adelaide. This

Rock on

After a week or more (I have lost track of time) of intensive heat, hosepipe bans and the threat of a shortage of vegetables. I thought I wouldn’t be able to enjoy wearing my knitwear for a couple more weeks as the forecast is grim (hot, hot, hot) for those of us who prefer cooler weather with the odd day of rain thrown in

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.
