Simple Things Can Get You Inspired and Excited

Two-Toned Linen Thread and Other Simple Things…

There is a lovely French man who supplies me with the most wonderful natural linen thread.  I use it to knit my washers.  I’ll knit while watching TV, sitting chatting with friends, you might even find me trying to knit as I eat a bowl of soup!  I just love to knit and, as many of you know, I just cannot sit still and do nothing.  So, doing two things at once fulfils my need to feel productive and satisfies that creative itch.

My wonderful French man came by the other day with a fabulous linen thread in a two-tone navy hue.  Naturally, it must have been less than 30 seconds before I was right into knitting some washers with it.  It is now my new favourite. Have a look at these washers that I have been doing over the Christmas period.

As always I can’t rightly keep all these washers I am churning out. So I have put them up in my store for you to enjoy.

Creating things, no matter how big or small, groundbreaking or simple, is one of the best feelings in the world.  I would absolutely love to hear about and see what you have been creating over the holidays.

Comment below or email me ( with pics and info on your creations so that I can put a blog together of everyone’s cleverness to share with the world.
