Ponies Presented with Fair Isle Jumpers

Adorable ponies Albert and Ernie were presented with matching fancy knitwear after completing an 800 mile journey to the Shetlands, the home of their ancestors.

Ponies Presented with Fair Isle Jumpers

They’re probably not in desperate need for the warmth of colourful knitwear but they look a-neigh-zing and that’s what matters. Along with their owner Emma Massingale, 34, the trio look positively dashing in their matching attire and are sure to turn heads. Their month-long journey came about after Emma wanted them to sample life on the Scottish islands where their peers have lived for over 4,000 years. After some trepidation Albert and Ernie soon made friends and mingled with the fellow ponies. “They are designed to be in that environment. Seeing them thrive just gave me such a boost,” said Emma.

Craft Your Way To Mindfulness
Craft Your Way To Mindfulness

Crafting really can change your life! You will have heard the term 'mindfulness' everywhere, but how can you get involved in this new-found practise? Crafting is always the answer. With fast-paced jobs and busy schedules, it's important we take time for ourselves and make sure that we properly de-stress. In our opinion, the only way to truly do this is to get creative. You may sit down in front of the TV, or dive into a book, but if you're anything like us, you'll find that your mind is still wandering. When we're crafting we are completely invested in what we're doing – whether that be concentrating on tricky stitches or choosing which coloured pencil to pick up next. The point is, our mind is calm, and our mind is mindful. Watching yarn turn into a beautiful garment is one of the greatest feelings and is certainly classed as mindfulness – if this sounds familiar then you're already a master. Below you'll find 15 – yes 15! – FREE projects that you can download right away. Take 10 minutes of me-time on us. Go on, you deserve it. Simply click on the picture to find the project!

Recreate Princess Charlotte’s Style
Recreate Princess Charlotte’s Style

Princess Charlotte is often in the headlines seen sporting a new, and utterly adorable outfit. Her style captures the hearts of parents everywhere, eager to dress their child similar to the royal. A recent news story featured Charlotte wearing a cute sheep-design cardigan from John Lewis. The store later confirmed that the garment sold out very soon after the photograph of the princess – taken by her mother the Duchess of Cambridge – was released to the public. Already a style icon at the tender age of two, it's no surprise parents want to add an elegant 'Charlotte-style' touch to their little prince and princess' wardrobes. Instead of buying something similar why not knit or crochet one? We like to treat you, so check out the patterns below – they're all free!
