Colour Work


It has been all about colour this week.   I have been putting together new colours on the Warm Hearted Aran base, some of which sold out very quickly!  The most popular colourway was Festive Lights, a colour which, up to now, I've only done on the Reliable Sock Yarn base, but which I decided to test  […]

A tale of two pairs


If you've read my blog for a while you'll know my love/hate relationship with my knitting machine.  But there is no denying that it can produce a pair of socks far more quickly than I can by hand knitting them, especially if they are to fit larger feet.  This weekend I completed two pairs of socks -  […]

An Autumnal Week

We had a lovely week with our friends, Neil and Gilly.  Although walking was a little curtailed for Gilly, we took advantage of a wonderful facility in Assynt, the All Abilities Path, which was ideal for Gilly who wanted to do some walking but not on rough ground.  The All Abilities network of paths  […]

Quick off the mark

It's only the 12th February, and some of the overseas members have only just received their club yarn (colourway "By the Fireside"), but already I am receiving photo's from members of either a sock in progress or a completed pair!  And yet another blogger has a photo of a finished sock.   […]

Close Encounters

On our way to the post office in Lochinver this morning to post yet more sets of Knitpro needles to those of you who have been snapping them up, we passed this rather stately looking gentleman:We were so close we could have touched him.This blog has had a lot of new visitors over the last 48 hours.  […]

Good Medicine

Oh dear, we're not as young as we once were.  After two consecutive nights out for dinner with friends, we woke up this morning feeling pretty tired.  So we thought the only solution was to head out for a walk.  It was a beautiful, sunny, crisp morning, and so we headed to the hills.  Peggy and  […]
