1 Day 13 Hours Ago

Afternoon plans on a grey day. Looking forward to casting on a new hat with @thesixpencemoon DK yarn in the aptly named Grey Days colourway, and listening to #podcasts. #knitting #knitstagram #irishhanddyedyarn #plans

Farewell 2017! While it’s been fun to be reminded of friends near and far, I’m looking forward to a gentler 2018. Wishing you all a happy New Year! #best9of2017

I love this time of the evening around Christmas. Candles, knitting, and quiet time. I hope everyone is enjoying Christmas and taking time to rest and recharge. Seasons greetings! #knitting #chevron #babyblanket #sweensiecrafts #sweensiebags #candle #christmas #quiettime

Went for a walk this afternoon and enjoyed looking at the last of the leaves changing colours. Love the autumnal light at this time of year. #autumn #fall #leaves #light

Spent some time here at #pearl with @bookishstitcher earlier in the week. I was so excited to meet Jeanette that I forgot to take a photo. #photofail #bookshopping #bookishstitcherpodcast #twigbookstore #sanantonio

Beautiful house and setting, beside the Mississippi. It felt completely separate from what was happening on the plantation. Wish we'd more time to learn about life on the #plantation #oakalley #worldsapart #creolevscajun #sugarcaneplantation #slavery #oaktrees #louisiana

This afternoon I'm snuggled up on the couch reading my first Agatha Christie mystery! Have you read Agatha Christie before? Or have you watched some of the tv adaptations instead? #agathachristie #reading #bookstagram #classiccrime

The last of the Summer flowers. I'm not sure I'm ready for Autumn just yet. Black Eyed Susans always remind me of the #book with the same name now. Did you read it? #blackeyedsusans #flowers

This weekend I went #exploring North of the border with the excuse of going to @yarnfolkfestivalofwool on Saturday. @caffeinatedgert asked #widn a couple of days ago. Better late than never, I guess! I'm now back at home and feeling inspired by some lovely yarn purchases. Care to share what you are up to @lismorelady @vanawillemiel @pinkhairgirlknits ?

Went to see an adaptation of Emma Donoghue's Room tonight. It was really good. The sets were amazing and little Jack was excellent. #room #emmadonoghue #theatre #adaptation

Where as today's #exploring is a little closer to home. Yay for three-day-weekends! Happily admiring my finished @pinkhairgirlknits birthday cast on (The Milo Baby vest), knitting away on a new hat. And, to balance out the dark colours of my knitting I've got one of @caffeinatedgert Neon green woven bags to store them in. I'm also virtually exploring Cookeville, Tennessee while I enjoy my #tea
