Here & Now | November 2018 Link-Up

Loving // Cooler days after the heatwave we had a week ago and the garden bursting in flowers on most of the plants. I'm also admiring the beautiful handspun yarn samples and hand dyed/spun/woven coasters I was sent by Vicki Cornish of Bonsai Woman. I interviewed Vicki for Yarnologie Issue 02, and she was kind enough to send some samples of her gorgeous work.

Eating // Fresh strawberries from the patch with yoghurt most days, and there's a chicken roasting away in the oven as I type. It smells delicious.

Drinking // Less tea as the days warm.

Feeling // That the weekend is going by too quickly - this week was full-on and I'm not ready to start the next one.

Making // A star garland for the swap, pictured in progress above and then wrapped and ready for the post. I'm also knitting the second sock in my red nettle pair. The stars are knitted from organic cotton in the colour Rosie & Pearl and the pattern is here.

Thinking // I'd better go and put the pudding into the oven and write a letter (yes, that's a weird combination.) I'm also thinking about tomorrow's to-do list.

Dreaming // Of not too much, I'm actually spending more time reflecting into the past at the moment. Perhaps its the time of year?

I'm sorry that Here & Now is late this month! I didn't realise what the date was until today, realised that I'd almost missed posting the 2nd last H&N for the year! I promise to try and post the December's link-up on time.

  1. Mmm...pudding! :) And strawberries - ours are in blossom with the first baby berries just starting to pop out. Your Here & Now is looking/sounding lovely, as always. Enjoy the final few weeks of spring! ~L

  2. This cooler weather is lovely after that heatwave, Sarah. Your sweet peas are just gorgeous as is your star garland. I am going to try that pattern, I think a knitted star would be perfect for our tree. Meg🙂

    1. Have fun with the star! It's so quick to knit, a very satisfying project :-)

  3. Love the star garland and those socks!!

  4. Looks like lots of making in your corner of the world Sarah. Yes, i think it's that time of year for reflection. I'm looking forward to making some space to connect once our move/pack up is out of the way. Will be nice to take time to slow down.

    1. All the best with your move, Laura! I hope it's as smooth as possible xx

  5. I always enjoy reading these posts :-)

    1. Thank you, Raewyn! I'm so glad you enjoy them x
