walking and knitting

Hello! How on earth is it the end of June already? We have just returned from a relaxing break in Wester Ross – surely one of the loveliest parts of Scotland?

Tom took lots of photographs of some really beautiful spaces

. . . and occasionally photographed some other things as well.

The Cadadh wrap is now available!

I did a lot of actual knitting . . .

as well as modelling of finished objects . . .

But we spent most of our time walking in some truly spectacular landscapes.

Skye from Applecross

This was our first walking trip without Bruce, who, at the grand old age of 12, has started to struggle with steep sections and really prefers walks that don’t extend beyond 5km. Bruce spent his own relaxing holiday at my mum and dad’s.

Bob and me

We all missed Bruce, but he loves spending time with my mum and dad – and we definitely felt that some of our walks last week might have been bit much for him.

Bran in a rare moment of stillness

For example, this long yomp around the coast of Applecross, with wonderful views around the peninsula . .

. . . and across to Skye

Bob and Bran were in their element!

I’ll try and put together a few posts in coming days about some of the Wester Ross walks we particularly enjoyed – and if you are interested in the wrap I’m wearing, it’s name is Cadadh (Gaelic for plaid cloth) and it’s available from the KDD shop or Ravelry.

The very versatile and cosy Cadadh

And before I nip off to look at more of our holiday photos, a quick reminder: if you would like to enter a project in our Argyll’s Secret Coast KAL (there are prizes!), please post your finished objects in the KDD group Ravelry thread, (lots of inspiration there!) or, if you don’t use Ravelry, email a photo & details to us at info@katedaviesdesigns.com, before the end of the month. We’ll be organising the prizes this weekend. Thank you!
