Fabric Houses

I was in Bath this weekend for my friend Helen’s Hen do. It was a crafty affair with a jewellery making session at The Makery followed by a little shopping. First in the patchwork shop I picked up a half meter piece of this great house fabric. It’s going to become either a bag, a [...]

Quick Sock Update…

…because, yes. I’d forgotten about last week’s decision to try and blog on a Monday. So here’s my sock a week later. Have just been doing a little while I watch Bones – currently on season two. I’m now on the heel flap. Would have finished the flap yesterday had I not made a mistake [...]

Plain Vanilla Socks…

…and yet I never get bored of knitting them. Started knitting on the weekend using my usual toe up pattern and some Lang Jawoll Magic in shade 6475. I’m knitting it on my new Hya Hya 2.5mm circs that I bought in Lacis during my trip to Berkeley and San Francisco last month. I also [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

New blog – The Perils of Christmas Knitting

There’s only one word to describe this past weekend. Frantic. I’ve been knitting Christmas presents and cursing my slow knitting pace. Sadly, I’m not a knitting speedster. Things that take other people three hours seem to take me three times as long. So next weekend may see me taking a little break from knitting for [...]
