Happy Half Term

handmadebysoo will be taking a break this week for Half Term so there will be no Fenton Knitting Group this Tuesday.  Enjoy the time and the warmer weather, ladies, and keep knitting!

Our Japanese visitor arrives back home safely in Tokyo


Everyone who met our delightful Japanese visitor will be pleased to hear that she has arrived home safely in Tokyo.  She has kindly sent a photo of her English souvenirs.  The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that there is a handmadebysoo teapot and cosy included in her haul!

Happy New Year to our little champagne cork!

Champagne cork

As the church bells rang in the New Year and the fireworks burst across the river, one of our champagne corks went astray, only to be found this morning, nestling in one of our evergreen arrangements.  We thought he looked comfy, but decided he needed a little knitted hat and scarf to keep him warm in the bitter wintry weather.


Our lakeland holiday

This summer we decided to stray just a little further from our beloved Suffolk for our summer staycation. We travelled all the way up to Keswick in the Lake District to stay with our friends Rod and Denise at their guest house, Portland House. www.portlandhouse.net
What a great decision! We had the most amazing time. We are not really outdoorsy types and certainly not experienced walkers, but we enjoyed the spectacular views and gorgeous weather by boat, car and, yes, occasionally, on foot, too!
TLT took loads of lovely photos, but here’s just one of mine!  I took it the first evening we arrived.  We raced down to the lake to get a glimpse of the water before night fell.


We can’t recommend www.portlandhouse.net highly enough.  Denise and Rod spoilt us rotten!  Thank you, both!  See you again soon.

And what about my holiday knitting project? More of that another time!
