Tuesday

Women and Home

Hello! Just in case you missed this months Women in Home (how could you have!), I have some very exciting news which is that me, my mum and my granny all wrote articles in this month's issue. It's not a coincidence that we were all featured this month, in fact we were all writing as part of a piece on redefining the goalposts for what is age appropriate. 

It's SO exciting to see something I have written in a magazine and even weirder to see a picture of me (even if it is the smallest!) In fact I have been casually leaving the magazine around the house open on page 70 in the hope that someone will read it! But so far I think only Posy has, and she preferred chewing it to actually reading it. 



If you do get a chance to pick up a copy of Women and Home and read the articles properly please leave a comment saying what you thought! My piece is all about (surprise surprise) my love of knitting and how it contradicts with the stereotypical views people have of teenagers so hopefully if you are reading this blog and love knitting you will like what I wrote, and if you don't please don't leave a comment!

Have a lovely Tuesday (if that's possible!)

  2. What a fantastic article! I popped on my glasses and squinted really hard to have a read. You wrote beautifully, and I think the women in your family are rad - well done!

  4. I read the article and it struck a chord, loved it. I'm similar in age to your mum and in attitude (especially the swearing bit!). I'm also a blogger and a knitter and, like you, I started as a teenager, then forgot about it during my 20s and 30s and re-discovered it in my 40s. Now, with a group of likeminded girlfriends, I have set up a mending club where we knit, patchwork, make jewellery, crochet, natter and drink copious amounts of wine....I think my mantra is probably 'age irrelevant'. Carry on blogging and knitting Scarlett, I know I'm finally a real knitter when I eventually crack fair isle!

  5. Brilliantly written, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It was a great idea for an article - the three pieces read really well together.

  7. Amazing! I like knitting too, and so does my very good friend, who, for my 21st birthday presented me with a hand-knitted patchwork blanket which is just adorable, and all the more special since she had to start making it in the August before my December birthday! I started following you via hellogiggles and I really love your work, keep it up!

  8. Well done, I wedged my eyes right up at the screen so I could read it, lol! You should be proud of yourself and I agree with everything you said. The thought of being at home eating a cupcake and sewing feels so lovely compared to a cold night out..:') From a teen grany ;) - Becky X
