Knit All the Things…ish

Remember Jabba?   Here he is installed on Eric’s sofa. He takes most of it up! I had all of these grand plans for the Christmas break. I was going to knit all the things and read and watch all the things, too. Of course the reality is that I was only able to knit, [...]

Eleven Years Ago Today…

I blogged for the very first time. It’s still rather strange to think of old Space Craft is. Scifiville is even older, I bought the domain back in June 2000.   So I’ve made some new aquistions   I picked this up in my local Aldi for about £2.50 I think.   It contains this [...]

The End of the One Year Blogging Challenge plus 11 years of SpaceCraft…

So, this time last year I pledged to blog every Monday for a year. Why? Well, because my blogging had pretty much dried up. The last few years had come and gone with only a few posts to show for them. So to herald the eleventh year of this blog – yes, that’s right eleven [...]

Something old, Something new…

I’ve been thinking a bit more about finishing off old half started projects.   This Onnen Cowl has been on the needles for a little while and in a variety of yarns. This time it’s in Fyberspates Scrumptious Chunky. It could get finished soon. But I also have a hankering to return to my Rose [...]

Something to Keep the Cold Out…

Sometimes I take on too much. In this instance it was decorating & trying to take part in the 30 minute challenge. No sewing has happened this week. Not a jot. Not even a pattern cut out.   But I have finished one thing. My owl hat modelled by the lovely Nefertiti And a close [...]

Birdies for the New Year…

I was lucky enough to have some yarn amongst my Xmas presents this year Two skeins of sock yarn from my lovely friend Helen. She also gave me some beautiful stitch markers I’ve deployed one already The picture isn’t as clear as I’d like, taken with a daylight bulb as it’s so dark these days, [...]

It was the Night Before Christmas and the needles were not silent…

I’m so glad that my Christmas gift knitting is over. It was really up to the wire and I won’t be doing that again!   I can’t tell you what I knit as some friends have yet to open their presents but I did start knitting myself one on Sunday night All I can say [...]

Shhhhhh – Secret Knitting!

Yes, I’ve lost my mind and succumbed to the terrible fate of Christmas knitting. Life would have been so much easier if I’d just started it in August. I was going to try and take a sneaky, non revealing photograph of some of the knitting but it didn’t come out very well so we’ll have [...]

New blog – Slowly but Surely

So I’m still plugging away at She’s Electric. I spent a lot of time working on it over the weekend but there’s still a way to go on the colourwork Apologies for the badly lit pix, the nights are drawing in and the light had almost gone when I snapped these I’m just over the [...]

New Blog – In progress

Not a great amount to blog this week. The Lucky Cat earrings aren’t yet finished.   That’s them residing inside one of my jewellery finding drawers. I’ve capped them with little silver beads and am considering adding a clear crystal on top before I attach them to the ear hooks. Knittingwise I’ve got a few [...]
