I have a question: how many weeks/months need to go by before you have to reference that you haven’t written anything in a while? A week, a month? I honestly don’t want to start every post with “sorry I’ve not written in a while”. But I think I need to acknowledge this one as it… Continue reading What do you mean it’s been 4 months?!
I hope that this post finds people well. Over in my little corner of the world, things have been quite busy. My little boy turned one and recently started walking – first shoes bought yesterday! – so I am preparing myself for mayhem ahead.

I took 15 balls of yarn with me to work on my husband’s jumper. I used one. That’s right, one. When I was packing I think… Continue reading Work in Progress June 2016 (plus a little bit of drama)
I managed to finish my hat over the Easter weekend. It’s called the Mathings Hat by SL McDonald and you can find a link to the pattern HERE.
