Keeping Cosy

Brrr, it's getting cold isn't it?  I must admit, the sparkle of a little frost does help add to the excitement that Christmas is just around the corner!

I decided that a little shopping trip (for me, rather than for Christmas shopping) was in order as I desperately needed more cosy jumpers - in a bid to stop me from cranking the heating up whenever I was feeling cold! 

That there is one full shopping bag :)

I'm so glad the Scandinavian and Fairisle look has taken over the shops here, I just love the cardis and jumpers that are in the shops at the moment.  I managed to find a few that I liked, here are some that I bought -

I got another jumper, and also a pair of light brown skinny jeans - well I need those to go with my winter boots don't I?!

And for the cold mornings when I walk Joshua to nursery, I really needed to get myself a cosy hat, so here I am modelling my lovely wooly hat with huge pom-pom!

I haven't just been ensuring that I keep myself cosy, I have been looking after my candles too and have crocheted a few jam jar/candle cosies!  Aren't they sweet?

The tutorial for these can be found here, but be warned - they're very addictive!

There's also been lots of baking and cooking going on here too, last week we really enjoyed this cinnamon sugar apple cake -

Stay cosy x

  1. I love your Fairisle cardigan! I`ve just bought a snuggly one from Sainsburys. I love Winter knits.

  2. It's really been freezing this weekend, not helped by our heating being on the blink. Absolutely love the fair isle jumper and the cake sounds/looks well yummy!

  3. I would like to invite you to join me at the Clever Chicks Blog Hop!

    I hope you can make it!

  4. Lovely cardigan! We're needing to pull out all our warmest woollens now too. We had lots of snow here yesterday, but it didn't stick. I hope we'll have some more soon!

  5. Lovely purchases, I especially like the grey Fairisle one! The jam jar cosies are gorgeous too, thanks for the link to the tutorial xx

  6. Love your winter woolly haul - are those scandi gloves lurking in the bag too, they're fab!

    I'm trying not to increase my to-do list but those jamjar cosies on some homemade Christmas jam would be brilliant...


I love to hear feedback from readers of my blog - please let me know what you think!
