Tell + Tell

While life gets in the way of Sophie's knitting plans and she waits for Issue 18, Lydia has lots of projects off the needles and looking gorgeous! Here she is mid-jumping for joy in her new Vaara tee knit in Old Maiden Aunt's Merino 4ply in 'to the black'.

Another fresh FO includes Lydia's Equilibrium cardigan, knit in Blacker Yarn's Tamar...

And on a knit to know basis, Lydia recommends the cultural delights of Ali Smith and Happy Valley.
