Here & Now | March 2018 Link Up

Loving // The cool autumnal weather, feeling more settled in this new place and also that the veggie patch has suddenly gotten very lush with recent rain. 

Eating // Homemade baked beans on homemade sourdough for lunch - yum!

Drinking //  Tea, as always

Feeling // Nervous excitement after walking around town on Friday afternoon putting up flyers for a knitting workshop that I'll be teaching in April. It's something I've wanted to do for so long, but it doesn't stop it from being mildly scary! (If you're interested you'll find the details here).

Making // Speedy progress on my Feather Stitch Sweater as I try to get it done by the end of this month! I want to wear it to my workshop, and I also just want to knit all the other things on my list! I finished the arm shaping on the front of it yesterday, so now it's just the neckband shaping and then I'll be on to the sleeves.

Thinking // About so many different things! There is the knit-along, workshop and Knitfest to plan for, exciting yarn arrivals to watch out for and then just the everyday life things that keep us all on our toes!

Dreaming // Of cosy winter days by the fire

What's been happening in your Here & Now? I feel I must apologise for this post being a whole day late! 
The little row of boxes pictured are mug cosy kits headed to Knit-Along participants. I'm so excited by how many lovely knitters have joined! If you'd like to join the KAL, sign-ups are still open for a whole week! And the basket of coloured organic cotton is what arrived at the end of this week, aren't they pretty?

Are you going to join in Here & Now this month? I'd love to see your post!

The link-up is open from today until midnight on the 17th of this month. Simply copy the Here & Now list from below, paste it into a new blog post and fill it in. Add as many (or as few) photos to your post as you like and then hit publish! The last step is to come back here and add the link to your new blog post to the link-up tool below, so that we can all see your post. I'd love it if you could please link back here in your post, too, so that others can find the link-up.

  1. Things are looking lovely, lush, and green in your new garden, Sarah. Good luck with the workshop! :) Exciting adventures ahead for you - new home, new town, and new initiatives. Yay!

    1. Thank you Laura! Everything is so lush...I only wish the grass would grow a tad slower :-)

    2. Too true! It's an endless battle here at the moment! And the weeds, oh my. If only everything grew as well as the weeds. Haha!

  2. Your new cottons look so lovely, Sarah. Beautiful colours! I love knitting with organic cotton as it's always so soft. Your veggies look great too...I'm planting my Autumn veg seedlings out on the weekend. Meg:)

    1. Thanks so much Meg! I need to get some autumn seedlings in, too. My zucchinis are flowering, though, so hopefully they finish up before the cold arrives! x
