Just a quick post today. It was my birthday yesterday and I had such a lovely day with my family. We went out to dinner at our local pub. Ah, the days of fancy restaurants and good fillet steak are gone. If they’ve got crayons, some toys and an outdoor play bit I am sold.… Continue reading Birthday Treats
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. We have been having some work done on our house, replacing… Continue reading Can I wear fox mittens too?
Here’s a quick round-up of some of the knitting and crochet events taking place across the UK in 2017. Click on the name for more information. I’ve only included confirmed events, but I will try to update it as and when new events are announced.

I have been meaning to write this particular post for about the last 8 months (story of my life. I have lots of ideas for posts. I just need a bit more time). I first thought about writing it as I was putting away my son’s 0 to 3 month clothes and I was hit with… Continue reading Growing Up
This post is one that I planned to write months ago and I feel pretty dreadful that I haven’t managed to write it until now as it is a thank you post to Joey over at Little Black Dogsa. She ran a yarn giveaway competition a few months ago to celebrate her blog being 4… Continue reading Super scrummy yarn
Hats really are one of my favourite things to make – both for myself and other people. I think it’s because they are quick to do, so I get that wonderful ‘ah, finished’ feeling before I have the chance to get distracted and move on to something else. I am ashamed to say I don’t… Continue reading Finished Work October 2016: Another Hat!
I am not quite sure how 2 months has passed since my last post Loss, but it would seem we are in September and my wee blog has been woefully neglected. But whilst my digital life has been quiet, my actual life has been hectic to say the least. As you can imagine, we are… Continue reading Hello again.
I haven’t posted anything recently as my father-in-law died very suddenly a couple of weeks ago and we have all been left reeling. As you can imagine we are all trying our best to come to terms with it. My husband and his sister lost their mum 19 years ago, so a lot of the… Continue reading Loss
After doing relatively little on the cable jumper over my holiday, I have been on a bit of a roll and have managed to complete the back (pic below). This is due in no small part to the fact my son is now regularly napping. Every day! So whilst I should be doing some housework,… Continue reading ‘The Jumper’ continued…
We had a lovely holiday in Spain (although not without drama. More on that later). As predicted, I didn’t get anywhere near as much knitting done as I had planned. 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)
