Field of golden flowers

The Yellow flowers are back in the fields behind us again, they are a very welcome sight but do make me sneeze too!  We sometimes find the odd one or two growing in our garden.

There was a Poppy field across the road from these fields planted out 2 years ago which I wish they would replant, it was glorious!

YAK - Yarn and Knitting Specialists - Local Brighton

For all you avid knitters and crocheters, there is a new knitting shop in town.  Yarn and Knitting, affectionately known as YAK has recently opened up in Gloucester Road in the heart of Brighton.

I used to knit a lot in my youth, mum was an ace knitter and her crochet amazing.  My commutes to London ten times a week meant I could pop out a garment in no time, I still have those jumpers somewhere!

Yarn and Knitting is set to become the hub of the knitting and crochet community both locally in Brighton and online, they will ship product worldwide too.  There is something for everyone with yarns from British suppliers, mills and hand dyers from across the UK along with accessory products such as patterns and some innovative tools.


Classes ranging from Beginners knitting and crocheting to fashioning socks and hats and more unusual techniques such as Arm Knitting are also held in the Brighton shop taught by experienced tutors.  Knit Night is also held every Thursday from 6pm where you are welcome to bring in your latest project and hang out with other knitters and crafters.

If you are a local knitter or a visitor to the town, do come and visit Yarn and Knitting, the destination for all things knitting and crocheting!

You can find YAK at 

6 Gloucester Road

If you read my previous post, you'll know we lost our very loved dog last week, Miss CCL asks me every day if he is coming home today, is he happy and whispers I love you doggie every night as I kiss her good night - she's known him all her life so it's understandable that she misses him so much. I miss him more.

Catching the sun behind the Angel statue in Hove the next day was quite special.
