In between baby sitting Bert I've been busily working away on my Madder Triangles book re-write.

As I woke up this morning I came to the realisation that Madder Triangles isn't a good name for a book, the title doesn't give you any idea what its about, 

You know, I know,...

This is a cathartic blog post for me, I need to write it to let off steam, it starts off as negative, but ends up being positive  and exciting.

I have just published my  new blanket pattern Cote de Lynmouth.

Its a sunshine Kaleidoscope blanket and inspired by teenage memories of the South of France.

When I was a teenager my parents had a house in a small village called La Croix Valmer in the South of France on t...

I first came across the Ravelry GAL several years ago, at the time I was running The Natural Dye Studio and trying to finish writing my book, so I filed it in the back of my head as something to do later. Last year I completely forgot until it was too late, this year I...

I am delighted with my new site/blog.

I haven't had a website I could properly play with for a long time. It's still got a very long way to go, but the basics are in place.
