Woollies and Wellies

Hello! Just a quick post to show off a couple of projects that have been seeing a lot of wear lately. Both patterns are by Ysolda Teague, Ripley (the hat) and Ishbel (the shawl). They're both 100% wool, which is exactly what you need in this weather we're having at the moment. The photo's were taken on Sunday, when we went for a walk. We kept coming across patches of snow in the wood and fields, and the wind was icy cold!
We've been walking further and further each weekend, and managed 6 and a half hours this week. We've got a map and a compass, but there was still about half an hour where what we were seeing didn't seem to match up with the map. Thankfully I recognised a path we had come down earlier, and we soon knew just where we were. The last hour or so walking back home was so tiring, we were certainly glad to be home! We warmed up with a home made mocha and chocolate chip brioche :)

If you'd like more info on the projects, Ripley is here and Ishbel is here. I'll be back with photos of Ebony's bag soon. I'll leave you with a photo of me enjoying my wellies :)


  1. While you're walking around, check out any nearby geocaches, its a great way to get to know the countryside and discover new areas and it can become a bit addictive

    1. Oh that's a great idea! I've heard of geocaching before, but it hadn't occurred to me to look for them now we're walking so much :)

  2. Oh what fabulous woolies. You look so cute and snuggled up! x

  3. Your walk looks beautiful. My husband and I have been going on walks recently too, but we live in Los Angeles, which is interesting, but I envy your green and white walks.

    The knits look perfect for your weather. I love reading about 'how perfect this wool is for the windy mountain' but again, I live in LA...


Thanks for the comment!
