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”

Welcome to the jungle family!

So, what with not having posted properly for ages again, I haven’t mentioned that there are two new additions to the family!  One actual brand new person, and one fuzzy feline dictator. First of all (not chronologically, but never mind … finish reading “Welcome to the jungle family!”

Marking a century

My granddad would’ve been 100 years old today.  Happy Birthday Poppa! That’s the two of us together when I was small.  He died a few years ago now, and for another few years before that wasn’t really ‘himself’ due to … finish reading “Marking a century”

Busy busy busy

I’ve been running around doing all-sorts this week.  I’ve been at C House a few times, at the library (hi Henry!), at the gym (!!!), to KnitJam, and I’ve had a visitor this weekend – my friend Charlotte.  Whew!  And … finish reading “Busy busy busy”

A decade of blogging

I very nearly forgot altogether, but yesterday was my “blogoversary”.  The tenth anniversary of starting this blog, in fact. It doesn’t feel like ten years, but then there have been some years where I’ve barely blogged at all, or at … finish reading “A decade of blogging”

… and a Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone.  I’m having a quiet but good one – I was going to be visiting Mum, but she’s feeling under the weather so I’ve stayed at home instead.  So I thought I’d just jot a quick post … finish reading “… and a Happy New Year”

Christmas prep

I’m in the middle of getting everything ready for Christmas.  Actually, I feel that I’m doing quite well.  I’ve done all my shopping except for a couple of small things (and I know what those are and where I’ll get … finish reading “Christmas prep”

Oh baby, it’s cold outside!

I took a day off of blogging yesterday, but I’m going to see if I can now do the rest of December as well.  If not, no big worry.  I actually ventured out yesterday, and I’m glad I did, even … finish reading “Oh baby, it’s cold outside!”

No(t much) Snow

We’ve had a little bit of snow today, but it hasn’t really settled.  Which is good, because it meant that the rails and roads were OK for getting back from the Skunk Anansie gig at Brixton Academy last night.  That … finish reading “No(t much) Snow”

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”

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”

Clap!

As I mentioned the other day, I’ve finished my Clapotis [Ravlink] at long long last – it’s only taken me nearly three years!  Although to be fair, for most of that it was languishing in a bag with only the … finish reading “Clap!”

And they’re off!

So, I’ve started my spinning for the Tour de Fleece.  As I said yesterday, I’m starting with two complementary braids from Limegreenjelly that I’m going to ply together.  I’d actually spun up half of one of them already, so I … finish reading “And they’re off!”
