I’ve not been posting too much of late and it’s not because I’ve nothing to talk about, it’s mainly cos I’ve been so busy. I seem to have an awful lot of irons in the fire. On the knitting front, there’s Christian’s scarf which has lain dormant since Christmas and which I really should get […]

Finished Friday – Jenna’s Wedding Necklaces

I was so chuffed when my youngest sister asked me to make some necklaces for her wedding. Of course that meant deadlines and an enormous amount of pressure that the finished objects be absolutely perfect. Luckily her chosen pattern was relatively simple, even if the colour combination of dusky rose and chocolate crystal beads was […]

Something New

So my last proper post was about my trip to the hospital. That was a Wednesday night and at that stage I hadn’t eaten a proper meal since the previous Sunday lunchtime (scrumptious too).

A Tatted Christmas

December 031

Being snowed in didn’t stop me going along to knit-night last night. I had a few balls of yarn knocking about and decided to turn them into an ornament of sorts for Christmas. The result is my tatted Christmas tree. The tree pattern itself is by Elaine Scott and was published in the Autumn 2007 […]

Thistle Do

I stayed at home again today, this cold has I hope hit the worst patch and my face, shoulders and back are aching. Between naps I managed to complete the designers page on Knots – you can now select an individual designer and see all the patterns we’ve got links to that are theirs. It’s […]
