Inside this issue

I love Cassie Ward’s striped men’s jumper – I know I’d end up stealing it from my partner every chance I could get!

Which is also what I intend to do with the Zissou Hat I made with my husband in mind – inspired, of course, by Bill Murray’s eponymous hero of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. However, I’ve provided simple instructions for making the hat in any size, so all the family can enjoy cosy ears! We have some wonderful rustic yarns, perfect for warding against windswept days. Rosina Northcott’s beautiful Drapey Cardigan is a great project to display a woolly yarn, as well as my Bothy Shawl if you have some odd skeins of DK yarn to show off .

If you want to update your home, then check out our gorgeous Doily Rug. I’m also loving the beautiful display vases by Sarah-Jane Hicks, they are just the thing for some dried grasses on the mantelpiece.

Lastly, we have another very special project with Jane Crowfoot’s latest instalment of her beautiful Spirit of Flora CAL. The exclusive shawl pattern is a real heirloom piece, so I do urge you to explore digital copies of our back issues to complete your Spirit of Flora collection. I cannot wait to spend some mindful moments quietly working on my motifs, as the nights draw in.
