Warm

Here we are at the first Tuesday of February with our Photographic Monthly Meet Up.

The theme this month is WARM, so join us by leaving links in the comments to any photographs and/or posts both current and archive. Let’s all meet up for a huddle to keep warm – cos ‘baby it’s cold outside’! At least it is here. Any photos of warmer climes will be much drooled over and appreciated!

It might be frosty outside this morning but inside I’m indulging in some cosy hooky time before getting out of bed!

I’m loving the warm colours of Attic24’s Woodland Cal and in the 5th week of the Cal the blanket is big enough to keep me warm whilst crocheting.

I’m already thinking of new projects using these scrummy colours.Attic24 Woodland Cal

Going back to February 2013 I found this post – and the colours fit with the Warm theme

And this post from February 2014 when I was in Abu Dhabi for two gloriously WARM weeks.

In February 2015 I was keeping cosy under the Attic24 Cosy Cal

In February 2016 I knitted 14 bobble hats to keep my family warm

In February 2017 the Attic24 Cal was once again keeping me warm with my Hedgerow version of Lucy’s Moorland Blanket.

How are you keeping warm?

The theme stays open all month, just leave your links in the Comments.

I’m really looking forward to seeing your take on WARM.

Now I’d better get up!

Yarn Along: Attic24 Cal

Joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along and Attic24’s Moorland CAL.

I’m using slightly different colours to Lucy’s Moorland palette, as I really could not allow myself to buy more yarn, so am using colours from my stash. I think the result will be more hedgerow than Moorland, but I’m happy with the substitutions so far.

More details of the colours will follow in another post. They are all from the Stylecraft Special DK Acrylic yarn which I get from Wool Warehouse, but Deramores are also a very good mail order firm. You can find the fabulous Attic24 packs at Wool Warehouse.

When I was in Pembrokeshire (Wales) recently, I found the book, a wonderfully evocative tale of island life with lots of delightful black and white photos.

I’m itching to tell you all about my 31 days retreat to a gorgeous treehouse near Solva.dsc_0183  There is so much to tell you and hundreds of photos to sort through!

It was such a blissful time of beach walks, new friends, family history, sand circles and wild food foraging. It will take a while for me to put it together into some coherent posts but in the meantime pay a virtual visit to the treehouse via its listing on Air BnB which is how I found it – my review is there for you to read as well.
