Hand Knits Hit Interiors

Memories of knitting…..
knit one, pearl one..... kittens unravelling balls of wool....knitted hats.... earmuffs and woolly scarfs....Itchy mohair!

Did you know that knitting is coming back in vogue and now we're seeing it hit our interiors, so here's some great knitting inspiration to share with you.

I find it hard to believe that Christmas is
over in such a short time, all that preparation and Woosh! its gone.  
It won't be long before New Year is here and another year ahead.  
Since my mothers diagnosis I try not to look too far ahead and plan one day at a time. Blogging, however, does require one to think ahead so
I'll be continually looking for new ideas to share and inspire you
for the coming year.

  1. Love the pink throw in the first picture! Laura

  2. I agree its my favourite. Years ago my mother made a huge crochet bedspread (king size) for me and I feel awful I never used it on my bed as by the time she had finished it they were out of vogue. Now they seem to be back in I am going to hunt it out of storage and see how it looks.

  3. All these knits look so inviting, especially with the wet weather we're having! Thanks for sharing :) xo Kirsty

  4. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Cottage and Broome.' Your blog is so pretty. I love the snow pictures and the ornament wreath. While I was reading, I noticed that you have alot of the same interests as me and my daughters. First, my daughter also loves Interior Design, and has her degree in it. Also, the other things we have in common are photography, travel, and cooking. We started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with beauty and many creative ideas. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
