Looking Forward

At this time of year it is very tempting to look back, and mull over the year which has passed.  And that is no bad thing, and is sometimes worthwhile when considering how your life has progressed in the past 12 months, but all too often it can turn in to a pity fest about how awful the year has  […]

Well, Hello 2017


The first day of 2017 dawned in the same way as the last day of 2016 - wet and windy!  We have had front after front of "weather" coming through Assynt since before Christmas.  We had two named storms pass over - Barbara and Conor, and while they were fierce we were fortunate enough not to  […]

The first day of a new year

We were with friends until after the bells this morning, so the first day of the new year has been a quiet one.  We never really get to sleep in late, as there is always something needing our attention first thing in the morning, especially the hens.  So after making sure they were fine and the  […]

Happy New Year!

As a welcome to 2012, I'm having a little giveaway in the shop.   I have a basket in my workshop that is full of yarns that, for various reasons, are not up on the shop site.  Some are bases I tested but didn't run with for one reason or another, some are colourways I no longer do, and some are  […]
