An Actual Knitting Post

No, really! I haven’t done a lot of knitting (or spinning, and certainly not crochet) lately.  And by lately, I mean… the last 18 months.  Or thereabouts.  But in the last week or two I’ve picked up a couple of … finish reading “An Actual Knitting Post”

Typing + tiredness = not working

Since I’m extremely tired today (I have new medication which is making me drowsy, hopefully just for the adjustment period, and every time I sit down somewhere relaxing I drop off!), I’m not going to say much again.  I haven’t … finish reading “Typing + tiredness = not working”

Nearly done!

Just two rows to go on the Gap Year Travels shawl now: I’m planning to finish it and leave it blocking before I go to bed. Yay!

Ap*ply*ing myself

I need an editor to stop me from making horrible puns, don’t I?  But it’s true, today I have been applying myself to plying two bobbins of handspun together.  I haven’t done the whole lot yet, and there won’t be … finish reading “Ap*ply*ing myself”

Stitch by stitch

When I’ve not been out (Tuesdays is the day I volunteer at the library) or on the computer today, I’ve been industriously knitting away on my Travelling Woman shawl.  I’m determined to finish it soon!  I am a little worried … finish reading “Stitch by stitch”

WIP Blitz

The last, oh, while, I’ve been feeling quite determined to finish off all the knitting projects I have sitting around partly done.  Which is good!  Right?  Right.  It feels like I’ve done more knitting this year than I actually have … finish reading “WIP Blitz”

Z is for Zips

Even though I haven’t started sewing up the Menace jumper [Ravlink] yet, I’ve been thinking about the other Unfinished Object that’s been sitting around for ages and ages, and that’s my Chunky Zipped Jacket [Ravlink] which is knit from Sirdar … finish reading “Z is for Zips”

V is for Volunteering

I’ll be starting some voluntary work at a local library soon, helping people on the computers and internet.  I’ve got to go in for a sort of induction day and an interview, but as I understand it, they’re trialling a … finish reading “V is for Volunteering”

T is for Tan (or lack thereof)

I spent most of today on the beach, which was marvellous – the weather is warm and sunny, but with enough of a breeze to keep it comfortable.  I sat and knitted, listened to music for some of the time, … finish reading “T is for Tan (or lack thereof)”

P is for Projects

I had a sudden bout of startitis today (the urge to cast on new knitting projects) but I’ve managed to restrain myself!  Why did I do that?  Well, for the last… oh, good while, I’ve been resolved to finish the … finish reading “P is for Projects”

K is for Knitting in Public

So, today was World Wide Knit in Public Day (or at least, the start of WWKIP week) for 2010.  We had a little meet up and knit in Princes Park in Eastbourne to mark the event – there were just … finish reading “K is for Knitting in Public”

J is for Jumper

I’m not very good at knitting jumpers and cardigans.  Or at least, I’ve knitted them, but them completely failed to sew them up in two cases, and in other cases I’ve just not got very far on the knitting itself.  … finish reading “J is for Jumper”

A is for Ambition

I’ve decided that a good way to keep myself going with the daily posting is to do the meme / exercise that I’ve seen on some other blogs, and do a letter of the alphabet each day.  Obviously that leaves … finish reading “A is for Ambition”

And I’m back again

Oh dear, I haven’t posted for far too long!  A billionty years!!  Or to be more precise, just over five months.  Whoops!  I don’t know where the time’s gone to.  I’ve obviously been busy doing… stuff.  Yeah, that’ll be it. … finish reading “And I’m back again”

All Hands on Deck

I haven’t blogged much recently because I’ve been knitting.  Which means I don’t have enough hands to type at the same time!  I should at least be mostly done with the things I’m knitting as Christmas presents.  Ahem.  I might … finish reading “All Hands on Deck”
