An August Giveaway


A friend and I have recently set up a new ‘knitting’ group, Woolgathering at the Tyn-y-Capel . Nestled in the local hilltops we get to admire a stunning view no matter what the weather and enjoy conversation over a pretty darn good cup of coffee. I use the words knitting group loosely as we set up the group to include spinners, weavers, felters, knitters and crocheters. It is still in its early days but we already seem to have a lovely little group.

Still without my car, I have been treated to the scenic bus route. Ordinarily this means the long way round but at least up on the high ground it actually is a scenic route. My son was with me yesterday and we both noticed the subtle hints that high summer will soon be drawing to a close. It is now August and I have no idea where the time this year has gone.

There were a couple of trees that had the slightest tinges of the first flames of their autumnal cloaks… We were even presented with a bowl of windberries which don’t usually appear for at least another couple of weeks.

This got me thinking about how I need to start thinking about Autumn and Winter knits for the kiddiewinkles after their Summer growth spurt.

I need to dig out the thicker yarns, the inspiring browses through Ravelry’s pattern pages guaranteed to gobble them all up!

So, with the thoughts of Autumn on the tip of my forward planning mind (which doesn’t surface often – so make the most of it!!) I think this is the perfect time to give you a little something as a thank you for reading.

For the next month I am giving away my pattern Diamonds and Pearls Mitts for free* on Ravelry. All I ask is that you share a photo! Discount will be applied at the checkout automatically

Now, enough of these Autumnal thoughts, I’m off to enjoy the breezy sunshine …

About woodlandknitter

Who am I? A Mummy first a foremost to my two children, Toby and Emily. We took the decision to home educate the children after Toby had many problems within state education. Unable to send them to a Steiner school at present we base their education around the Waldorf ethos. This is working out wonderfully so far and we wish we had done it sooner. Secondly I am a fibre obsessive. Knitting, spinning, felting, dyeing or just generally stroking, anything goes. You can usually find us in the woods or up a hill, by the ocean's edge or climbing trees. Follow the little trail of yarn clippings and there we will be, me with some form of fibre in my bag at all times. #118 We try to live a simple, natural and holistic lifestyle, making sure that we connect to nature daily. Fairy tales and seeking out the enchanted in everyday life is a big part of our lives, as is plenty of craft and art. I am a new member of a medieval re-enactment group, the House of the Black Star and have met some amazing people through it. I have much to learn from them. In this blog I hope to inspire and share with you the things which inspire me. Feedback is always enjoyed and appreciated. Comments on my blog are always loved! I hope a little woodland magic makes you happy today! #037 Find me on facebook Ravelry Craftsy Etsy Pinterest
