This year I am determined,  I will be ready!. London is a funny place, you can have 28 degrees on Sunday and 15 on Monday! Last year in September I thought I was ready and then suddenly started to get cold really quickly!, I have three kids so I panicked and had to buy ’emergency’ winter gloves, scarfs and a few cardigans! This year I will be on top of it! I AM crocheting, sewing and knitting winter stuff through the summer even if it kills me! so it is a very sticky 26 degrees outside and I am sat here with all my merino and alpacas… nice!

I have been looking at the items that they will need for next year, a backpack is the first on the list, I like this pattern from Ann Marie Brei
