Initially, I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy this book. I am always a little bit wary when an author strays from the usual storytelling devices but after the first chapter I was hooked. It was interesting, fast-paced and easy to read. I… Read More
Just watched Submarine – the directorial debut from Richard Ayoade – and was blown away. Mostly because it’s just so beautiful to look at, but I also enjoyed the humour, the parents, the name Oliver Tate and the ending. It ended exactly how it should have. … Read More
Once again inspired by Pinterest I set off on a crochet journey, this time making the Sunny Spread with Noro Silk Garden Lite no 2037. The solid colour is a Sandnes Garn Smart wool which I loved but unfortunately ran out of so I had… Read More

I made this cushion cover using a modified version of a chevron cowl pattern that I bought on Etsy. The wool I used was Noro 341 (it took 4.5 skeins) alternated with some other wool that I had in my stash. It was a great way to use up some small amounts that I’ve had lying around for years!
