This is place for me to natter and a lot of it is about knitting.

Off to a good start.
The lovely flowers that M bought for me yesterday. I love flowers and these are a gorgeous mix of colour and texture.
First FO of the year! Ishbel by Ysolda Teague pattern can be found here. I've wanted to make this for ages and finally got around to downloading the pattern the week before Christmas.
This is the smaller size. It took 68g on a 3.75mm circular needle. The yarn is The Knittery sock yarn in colourway Moses Fire. It has a percentage of cashmere so is lovely and soft. The only downside is it's a little splitting to knit with, but the colours (not done justice in the pictures) are lovely.
