'Ripple'...

I love me a good crochet project and there's none better, in my eyes, than a crochet blanket...

My go to crochet blanket pattern at the moment is Attic 24's 'Ripple' - I simply love how quick and easy this pattern is to hook up yet it's so effective once finished...

My blanket making yarn of choice would have to be Cascade Sierra... This yarn is a dream!!! It's 80% Cotton and 20% Wool making it perfect for everyday wear and chucking in the washing machine when the need arises... The blanket has been used and loved by my 4yr old for almost a year now, machine washed and line dried many a times and it still looks new - gotta love that... :)

Do you have a favourite crochet project??? What about a favourite blanket?

Winter...

I love it now that the temps have dropped, things seem to slow down around here as we snuggle into our handknits and enjoy each others company - knitting and stitching and baking and playing and enjoying regular bonfire's and camp oven dinners...

Thankfully the days still have just enough Sunshine in them to lure us out of our toasty wood fired home, to play (and work), even if only for a little while...

Smores are by far my girls afternoon tea of choice these days as we slowly work our way round the farm burning through the piles of old limbs we've been stacking through Autumn...
