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”

And it’s done.

Hooray, I’ve finished my Gap Year Travels shawl.  I cast off in a different colour, which was totally a design feature and not because I ran out of yarn twice (if you believe that, etc etc), ends are sewn in, … finish reading “And it’s done.”

Things and Stuff

Today has been a day of variety, which has been nice!  I started out by going up to the Christmas fair for Mum’s church – I got there quite late on, so I helped clear up and carry the remaining … finish reading “Things and Stuff”

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”

Originally, I made the title of this post “Cardicisions”, which looked like I was trying to choose a vehicle, and then “Cardecisions”, which looked like I don’t know what.  So in the end I decided to discard all unclever word … finish reading “Cardi Decisions”

Late night blogging

Whoops… I’m really tired today, and I nearly forgot to post.  Wouldn’t that have been a good start to NaBloPoMo.  As it is I have no time to think up anything clever or interesting (as if there’s ever anything along … finish reading “Late night blogging”

Two things

Two things I’ve come across on the wide old interwebs have positively warmed my heart recently: Man builds cat-sized village for homeless cats.  There’s a bloke who went from not really being a cat person, to clearly understanding who’s really … finish reading “Two things”

H is for Help, I Can’t Think of Anything!

I’ll probably come up with a really excellent topic for the letter H in a day or two, but right now I can’t think of a thing.  Well, maybe I’ll be inspired while I’m writing, you never know!  And if … finish reading “H is for Help, I Can’t Think of Anything!”
