I have been making waves on Sherkin Island this weekend – thanks to the lovely Lucy at Attic24 and her pattern for a Cottage Ripple Blanket. This crochet project has sustained me through the winter months, and although only one third the way through, it came with me this weekend for a little coastal airing. Spring has arrived on the island, with gorse bushes in full bloom, creating a stunning show of vivid yellow against blue seas and sky. I spent most of my time admiring the scenery and taking pictures. However, I did grab a few moments on my favourite bench to sit in the sunshine and crochet for a while.

So the little house is dry and clean, ready for a new season. The grass has had its first cut and my spirits feel lifted. Leaving the island is never easy but I think you will agree that the sight of Baltimore makes that particular parting far sweeter.
