My Fyberspates Scumptious shaw design

Hi fellow bloggers, sorry I have not posted for quiet some time.  Sometimes other things take over in your life and I didn't want to just post for the sake of it.

Anyhow for those that know me and my knitting will know I have been working with lovely Fyberspates yarn designing my own pattern.

I am really pleased with how it has come out but would love your opinion on whether you feel it is a pattern you would like to make yourself?

My wife has kindly agreed to model it for me as I wanted to show it being able to be worn in different ways.  I have also showed the close up detail of the edging which I finished off with crotchet.

I really hope you like it.

2.8.11 For anyone that would like the pattern it is available from my Ravelry site .



  1. That's gorgeous - what yarn and colourway did you use?

    (and I love the haircut :D)

  2. That's a great looking knit pattern and I really like the way it can be worn as a chunky scarf. I haven't knitted with Fyberspates yarn yet, is it really nice to knit with?

  3. ooooooo that's lush!
    Well modelled P!!
    I'd love to make one like that,you're so clever.

  4. Fyberspates is just awesome. I love Scrumptious in all its weights! Which one was this?

  5. @ JCW: The colourway is Teal in Scrumptious DK, & thanks i'll tell the wife you like it :)

    @ Vintage Knitter: I'm glad you like it, it wasn't until I cast off and tried different ways to wear I realised how versitle it was and even better when I added the two buttons. It was lovely to knit with, very soft.

    @ Tickety-boo: I'm trying to keep up with you on the skill level but have a way to go yet :) x

    @ Red Haired Hiker: This was the yarn I bought when we went to WI finally used :)

The break is over.

Looking back on my blog my last entry was October, so a long break of 6 months!

A dear friend suggested I get back into blogging. I was unsure as I am a private person and wondered whether too.

So over the past week I have been going through the reading list of people I follow and really enjoy the ability to read and view image's.

I started this blog as a type of diary to be able to look back. I am definately not they tyle of person to do a "visual" blog and admire people who can sit in front of a camera and do that and I do so love to watch. So from the safety net of words and picture's I will share my love of photography, which is all done on my phone. My passion for knitting, my garden and what ever else I want to record for "safe keeping ".

So if you have a spare bit of time please do enjoy with me and let me know what you think.

I'm kicking off the blog with some of the trips I have had.

My first trip out was in Decmeber to my special place Slimbri…

Trip to Tewkesbury

This morning I woke to this poignant message having being sent to me by a good friend. I was unsure what to do with my day as I had no plans and the weather was set to be nice. 
So I decided to heed the advice and set off to Tewkesbury. 
On Friday I had treated myself to a nice new pair of walking shoes so this would be a great first outing for them.

Not even five minutes into my walk I spotted this beautiful Bluebells.

My first stop was a place called Lower Lode, Tewkesbury  you come down to the River Severn and the viewing point looks over to the 13th Century B&B/pup/campsite which was very popular today.

I decided to sit and people watch and listen to the bird's singing for 5 minutes whilst knitting a little of my new sock.

I then headed back the same way and walked across the park with the majestic Tewkesbury Abbey as the backdrop .

Here I sat for a little longer and listened to the bell ringing and watched as a coach load of visitors from Nottingham came to look around t…

Road to happiness photo session.

I live in the cotswold town of Cheltenham.  It is a very multi cultural town with some great area's for photography.

Today I decided to cycle along a route called the Honeybourne line which is an old disused railway line.

In 2017 #cheltenhampaintfestival create an amazing event that meant many area's were painted by incredible street artists.

One of who was done by Vanesa Long Champ an incredible artist based in London who has travelled widely.

Inspired hughly by Laine magazine I took photographs of my newly completed garment which I have called Road to Happiness.  One is a short sleeve top and the other is a love sleeve jumper. 

The garment is a boxy style comprising of lace, cables and moss stitch. I love the garment so much I will be making another and am going to design socks, cowl and wrap to complete the design idea's. 

Please do enjoy the picture's .
