It is the last day of March. Not sure if that means anything to anyone, I just thought it was a good opening statement. More importantly it is a Thursday and that means it is time to show you my sock progress. Of which there is some. I know I say that every week, you’d… Read More knitting socks | week 12
I began hinting to my mum that I would like an Easter egg back in February when they started to fill on the shelves. In a jokey way…but also very seriously. She told me yesterday that she did not get me one. I was incredibly broken hearted. I’m over it now, I recovered. Mostly. I… Read More Celebrate Easter With Some Creepy Easter Bunnies
I have finally finished the first quilt of the year! I also discovered something good this week. I am the new renaissance. That’s how good it is. Blogging while in the bath. Yep. That’s how good it is. I’m doing it right now. I have a face mask smeared on my face infact. I’m naked… Read More First Quilt of 2016 | The Tension Quilt
It’s Thursday again and time for socks! This is week two of knitting the second sock of my first pair of socks. That is an odd sentence. I got a bit of knitting done, not lots but some.

This is a bag I have recently learnt about from my mother who asked me to make her one. She doesn’t often ask me to make her something. Usually, it’s ‘you can make it for me if you want’. Like I’m desperate for things to make. When in fact I usually, no, always have too… Read More Stop with the Sac a tarte.
Week 10. That’s a lie. I have been knitting these socks since July 2015. But I did put this project on a bit of a hiatus though. Over Christmas I just could not find myself with the time or mind to start knitting the second sock. So even though I thought I wouldn’t, I went on… Read More knitting socks | week 10. let’s do it again.
The past four days I have spent in my bed only getting out of it only for nature calls, baths, the pharmacy and ice-cream. I only have a cold, but I feel terrible! I hardly ever get colds, but when they come they barge in and they hit hard. My throat is so sore, hence… Read More The Cornerstone Hat | FO
I recently posted about this piece of knitting to ask for some advice on what to do with it. I had received some great advice in the comments, and I would like to thank everyone who took their time to help me. I finally decided on putting it in a frame!
