It's Friday!  And lockdown restrictions start to ease next week!  It definitely sounds to me like wine o'clock should start a little bit earlier today 😀  Having said that, not much changes next week for us apart from small daughter going back to school so it could be that I'm just seeing an excuse to drink more wine ...

So how's your week been?

I'm not quite sure where mine has gone, and I'm also not quite sure what I've done with it!

I did notice that signs of Spring are popping up everywhere now.  This border is along our side path and every year I am delighted to spot purple crocuses that have been missed by a mouse (mice seem to really like crocuses, they must be extra-tasty!) ...

After half term

Thank you again for all your kind words and enthusiasm about my last post about the Seasons patterns, it's been such an amazing few weeks and I am loving starting to see social media photos of the yarns being used now!

School has finished, been on holiday and re-started again since the yarn launched and it's very strange writing a blog post about being back at school after the half term holidays when "school" is just along the landing on a computer!

Small daughter is not impressed that she has to get out of bed before lunchtime (she's wholeheartedly embraced the teenage time shift and would happily sleep most of her day away given the opportunity) but is even less impressed at the news that the schools are re-opening in March as she has also wholeheartedly embraced the new "uniform" of hoody and pyjama bottoms that are almost certainly not going to acceptable when school re-opens!

We've still managed to do a fair bit over the half term holiday, though.  I got out into the garden at the weekend and started my seed sowing.  It probably is still a little bit early but I was feeling the need to get my hands in the compost and the seeds will grow as fast as they grow despite me!

Winwick Mum Seasons yarn - all about the patterns!

Well, what a week it's been!  We've had ALL the seasonal weather here over the last seven days - sunshine, snow, rain, blustery winds ... I could have changed my socks several times every day and still not kept up with it all!

I promised that I would tell you about the patterns that go with the four new Seasons colourways (if by some chance you missed that blog post, you can find it here) and that's what this post is all about.

I said in my last post about colour inspiration that there's always a story and you won't be surprised to know that there's a story behind my pattern designs either.  I thought long and hard about how best to represent my choices of the colours for each yarn in a pattern, and I hope that as you read about them, they'll inspire to you some stories of your own!
