i'm loving right now: chunky knitting


To say I'm obsessed by chunky knitting is an understatement. It appeals to me on so many levels because I love things on a big scale and the thought of being dwarfed by a throw that totally encases the body with warmth, bulk and texture is enticing. The knitting needles are huge to knit these works of art, so big they could potentially give RSI by the end of the first row. I'm in the process of making a throw made from strips of fabric instead of wool that I'll show you soon. I have also just ordered some wool from Loopy Mango (in Limonata) and I can't wait to make a floor cushion. Can you smell a knitting diy coming soon? I'm so excited!

i'm loving right now: mid century collectables


There's something about mid century pieces that have such a fabulous sense of humour. They're not bland or afraid of colour. I've always loved the turquoise blue that was heavily used in this period of design too. Now that we have a mid century style house, I'm always on the hunt for some fun collectables. I'm loving the salt and pepper tv especially

Gotta love our pets

Our life has changed so much since our puppy entered our home nearly a year ago. How did we exist without him? His name is Sunny and he's known at the dog park as "the happy dog". Right now his paw is on my leg, blasting me with his liquid amber puppy dog eyes willing me to go for another walk. Resistance is futile. After this post we're off for a walk
