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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Finishing NaNoWriMo – and now what?

    As much I’ve enjoyed Nanowrimo, I especially enjoyed going over the 50,000 word mark and finishing yesterday evening. I’m off work this week and all the way through I’d focused on finishing the writing just before so that I could properly enjoy my time off.   So I could read all the books [...]

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 [...]

New Blog – Nanowrimo, procrastination and James Bond.

It sounds like a strange 1960s team-up show, I know. But the madness of National Novel Writing Month is almost upon me. I have only two days of sanity and freedom left before November first. Back in February I pledged to blog every Monday for a year. Some of my entries have been a bit [...]
