New pattern just released

... and guess what..... it is a ...... sock!

Surprised? Not really, I know - since most of my patterns are socks

This is the top of the foot - I am enchanted by it and the way it wanted to be decreased - not my usual star toe.

Some times the design just tells you what to do!

Byzantium is available from Patternfish (I should mention how lovely the people at Patternfish are - they really are!)

One day in June

June 9th blooms:

Siberian Iris


Pulmonaria leaves - bloomed for almost 2 months - the earliest to bloom

Newly planted Oakleaf Hydrangea, Clematis Summer snow and Lady's Mantle

More Siberian Iris

Lady's Mantle up close and personal


First bloom on my new Clematis Niobe. Every picture I have seen of it has been red but this is closer to the actual colour but still a little on the red side -it is even more beautiful than expected

Hakon grass

More Lady's Mantle - a lovely plant for partial shade - buy, beg, borrow or steal some if you don't have any - it blooms a brighter almost fluorescent green

More to come

a quick update

A very quick update

I am back

Selling yarns again - on eBay - so have a look and see if there are any of my yummies you can't live without

More soon
