End of April







Got sick of eating eggplant
Discovered Jells Park with Katie and Matilda's feet discovered grass
Kind of got the point of Instagram
Cried reading this book and marvelled at the recipes and the writing
Read the chapter on her dad dying and promptly had nightmares about digging up coffins and woke drenched in sweat
Impressed by the kale 
Disappointed by the zucchini 
...and telling it so every day. Black sheep of the family.
Matilda says dadadada and pulls angry faces and has the impressive eyebrow skills of her father.

First of Many Tovas

Look: awkward photos!





I love this pattern. It's brilliant. It took me just a few hours to sew this together. The instructions are good.
I just need to lengthen it, and I'd like it to be a bit flowy-er, so I shall widen it too. Everywhere else it fits perfectly. I made in in a soft corduroy. And I buggered up the plackets and neckline, but I don't care at all!

Outtake Shot: Look how naturally I can pose, just hanging out in my broccoli seedlings!

New Things!







My friend Laura took these photos of some things soon to land in my online shop and a few stockists too! Love how these turned out. Matilda was in a happy mood for exactly two shots until she cracked it and no amount of rattling, singing and whistling could make her smile.

Milo Triangled





My first ever venture into the frightening world of fairisling and it's turned out so well!
Milo is such a brilliant pattern. I loved knitting this up over the Easter break.
Matilda has to grow into it - it's a little on the big side.
The wool is glorious Rowan's. 
Ravelled here.
I can write up a tute on how to work the triangle pattern if anyone's interested. 
Let me know!

Happy Easter









Went to the Beach
Had a cold
Too much chocolate
Lovely company
