Blogs I Love - The Can't-Get-Enoughs


It's time for the second installment of my Blogs I Love series!  If you haven't read the first part, with all my old favourites, be sure to check it out too.  This week is all about the bloggers I've found in the past couple of years, the ones that post consistent GOOD STUFF and make me smile whenever their name pops up in my Bloglovin feed.  Once again, we're going alphabetically...


Siobhan is a knitter and photographer, among many other things, and her posts always make me want to go out and play with my camera more!  Her latest series about her newly set up studio is something to look forward to every week, not least for the excuse to nosy at her current knitting projects.

Best post of 2015 so far?  The first Studio Sunday prompted me to sort out all my knitting supplies this week - they're nowhere near as tidy as this but I can dream!


Kate's blog is a dreamy, dusky look at life on a farm down under.  There's plenty to love here - crochet, crafts and a vast array of nature pictures.  Now is the perfect time to become a fan of Foxs Lane because Kate is posting every day in January and it's a daily treat to look at these lovely, summery pictures when it's freezing here!

Best post of 2015 so far?  A tricky one given the amount of choice, but I'll go with Eighteenth, which features a collection of hand made spoons...


A blog with the most perfect knitted and crocheted projects, and the most awesome design I've ever seen - check out that header!  Sara has a real talent for her craft and it shines through with every post.

Best post of 2015 so far?  Tinsel Hedgehogs - I went nuts for these at the time and they're still making me smile.  So much cuteness!


I tend to think of Annie's blog as pretty similar to mine - a mixture of life and crafts and general wanderings, albeit at the other end of the country!  She just seems a bit more organised than me, especially when it comes to creating cool makes...

Best post of 2015 so far?  Made: Needlepoint Stegosaurus <<<  exactly what it sounds like, but in the brightest, best selection of colours.


Another blog from down under (which means more pictures of beautiful warm sunshine, grr!), Jules has the most colourful crochet projects I've ever seen.  Her pictures make the world a bit brighter, and there's always something I want to add to my crochet list.

Best post of 2015 so far?  Last Week... has rainbow crochet and rainbow birds!


I first came across Lori's blog when she was about to embark on a knitting holiday to Shetland, and I was instantly hooked.  The photography is so wonderful that even my love of nosing at other people's knitting takes a back seat for a change.  Not that there isn't plenty of that too...

Best post of 2015 so far?  There's only one, but it's typically lovely - Favourite Things


Christina's blog is a great peek into her life - her weekly posts are filled with pictures of food and adventures and cats.  Brighton is somewhere I really want to visit and reading Christina's blog is not helping my desire to get there soon!

Best post of 2015 so far?  Photos of the Week #1 featuring a cat in a sleeping bag...


I discovered Jenny's blog last year and fell right in love with it.  She makes the cutest crochet creations and knits, and there's some great free patterns on there too.  It's just my style of crafty.

Best post of 2015 so far?  It was a hard choice but... free pattern for a knitted owl hat!  


Bryony's life on the Isle of Wight makes for another covetable read.  There's many gorgeous outdoor pictures and lovely writing about simple living.  This year she's following an alphabet list of ways to make life better and it's pretty inspired.

Best post of 2015 so far? Alphabet 15 - the aforementioned list!


Suzy has the best writing style and the most amazing artwork.  I love her stories about life with her husband and baby son and the way she just gets on with life and manages to make it sound hilarious in the process.  Also, Canada in the winter?  You have my deepest respect for surviving that, Suzy.

Best post of 2015 so far?  The comments section of an Imogen Heap video - a look at the things people write under videos on YouTube...you'll be smothering giggles the whole way through.
