A Write Maniac…

This is one of those days when I’m so incredibly relieved that I wrote the majority of this blog yesterday.  I’m currently in a nanowrimo induced walking coma.  You see, I was away this weekend visiting the lovely Jeni of Fyberspates and having a fantastic catch-up with her. I did manage to write 2000 words [...]

Finished – Edinburgh Rock

I’m really pleased with how this turned out     I’ve never blocked a scarf before but I’m tempted to block this one so that the yarn over design shows up     Unfortunately I don’t have anything new to show you this week. I’ve had to stop and start a few projects including, Wild [...]

Not much of a Making Monday…

A short post this week because the shoulder pain I wrote about last time was the beginnings of shingles.  I’ve never had this before and assumed only older people suffered from it. Not true!  I’m dosed up on anti virals and two different painkillers but it’s not helping the pain a great deal. Shingles can’t [...]

Making Monday – Almond Comfit

Fyberspates Open Weekend

I’ve still got lots of catchup posts to write but on Saturday the lovely Karen drove Doug and I to Jeni’s unit for the first day of the Fyberspates Open Weekend. And what a fab day it was filled with knitting, conversation and the eating of cakes!  What more could you ask for? This was [...]

Crafting a room, fraternal socks and “warning – contains health issues”

This has been a busy week again. I’ll write a proper post about it later this week, but in short, I had a fantastic time on Wednesday! It was wonderful  to meet Heather and Dianne and to see Amy, Brenda and Tonia again. And then in the evening there were so many knitters packed into [...]

When knitting goes bad

So, I’ve developed a very recent addiction to knitting berets. The problem is that so far they’ve gone very wrong. My first Rollin’ Beret from some Fyberspates Scrumptious that Jeni gave me a few years ago, was a joy to knit. That is until I finished it & found that it was more of a [...]
