Trying Again.

Thank you to those of you that commented on my last post, it's lovely to know that I have been missed, truth is I haven't really felt like blogging of late and that last post was really published in error and that's why I have deleted it and am re-writing it if you like.

I have started several blog posts in the past but have never actually gotten around to clicking that publish button because the posts have been incomplete if you're not in the mood for blogging then it doesn't matter how much you try the posts just don't flow.

I'm still here and I'm fine, thank you for all your kind words but as for everyone else right now things are pretty tough and my heart goes out to all of you that have lost loved ones and/or are living alone and can't get out for a walk where there is beautiful scenery on your doorstep, like I mentioned in my last post I feel I'm so lucky to live beside the coast 

I walk by the sea every day and I never tire of it, there will always be lots of sea photo's on my blog even if it does look dark and grey as it did yesterday.

I have never stopped crafting it's the only thing that keeps me sane and here is another look of that lovely baby blanket made with The Saga square that I'm quite proud of...

It was a learning curve and it took me ages to figure out how to do the pattern for the squares but once the penny dropped I was away. The trouble is with squares they can become quite repetitive and to relieve the boredom I had a very simple baby blanket on the go at the same time.....

Just a simple C2C knitted blanket it took just 200 grams yarn. The picture is a bit dull the colours are much prettier in real life. 

The mosaic blanket above was a Tinna Thorudottir design and you can find all her patterns on Ravelry.  As I said in my last post I have just started making The Indiana Blanket, if anyone else has made it I would love to see any photo's, please send me the link.😊

I will try and post more often and not leave it for a year like I did last time, I do still often pop around and have a look at your blogs to see what you are all up to but it's disheartening when you see so many of your blog friends aren't blogging anymore I know many are on Instagram but it's not the same somehow. 
Until next time, take care and stay safe. 😘


  1. How wonderful to take your walks by the sea. I would never tiree of that view, either.

  2. Linda, I am so happy that you are ok. It's great you get to take such wonderful walks by the ocean. I would never get tired of that view. You made such beautiful blankets. Take care and be well.

  3. How lovely to live by the sea and be able to take your daily walks along the shore. The blankets are lovely, it's nice to have different projects on the needles so that you're able to work on whichever takes your fancy.

  4. Ooohh - that's grey and green blanket is gorgeous!! Almost are gorgeous as your current views. Best wishes!


  5. Lovely scenery and it would be so nice living by the water to go for walks. I have always really felt more at peace when looking at the water and waves crashing in. Love your baby blankets they are both so nice. Hope you stay safe during these uncertain times.

  6. How nice you are fine walking and handcrafting.
    Your blankets are beautiful. So nice to hear from you.
    Keep healthy. Hugs.

  7. Hi Linda, Your Saga Baby Blanket is lovely! I really enjoyed seeing the coastal photos too. I love the sea and the coast but we live in the middle of Canada so it is not very often I get to enjoy it :) We love travelling to Nova Scotia and when we are there I enjoy every moment I get to spend on the coast. I'm happy you are able to continue to share your projects and photos here with us. I've been reading your blog for many years now :) I hope you are having a lovely week with your crafts and views. Wishing you the best, Rhondda

  8. Thank you for sharing at Ginx Woolly Linx Party. I often have two projects on the go at once: a tricky one, and something simpler for when I just want to knit and watch the telly. Both your blankets are lovely.


Thank you for your visit, I will always answer any questions but due to time constraints I'm not always able to reply to your comments, please keep them coming I read and appreciate each and every one. xx
