>Off & Away

>We’re setting off tomorrow morning for our summer holiday – just over two weeks in Sunny Dorset this year. I doubt I’ll be able to access the internet but if I do will try do a quick post. My Dad lives near Lyme Regis & we’re staying about 20 minutes away in the caravan for […]


>Gift from Oz & Thank you Eyeknit

>Today I received a very belated birthday present from my Step Mum all the way from Oz! 300g of Soft Spun Mohair I adore the colours & it’s a beautiful yarn: 78% mohair, 13% wool & 9% nylon but I can’t think what to do with it. The yarn is from New Zealand, was purchased […]

>Like mother like daughter …….

>Finally I’ve got something to show on the Entrelac Shawl. I’ve never done an Entrelac pattern before & found it really weird at first.

>Knitting progress

>What an day – last night I realised that I was running out of the Jamiesons Super chunky black & needed another skein of Chunky shetland from Moondance Wools. Margie promised to sent it out this morning & also to hold a skein of the purple back for me in case I run out of […]


>Scarey times

>I feel shocked & saddened by events in Central London this morning. And angry. Angry that people can deliberately take it upon themselves to kill & injure innocent people going about their daily lives. I left London when I was 18 but the shock is still immense as I used to use the Tube to […]


>De-Junking & more

>Sorry for the lack of posts recently but we’ve been very busy at home. We’ve been de-junking the house, garden & garage & it feels good. We’ve had piles of bricks & blocks left over from the extension & even some from when DH built our kitchen in 2000! So DH spent the day on […]
