Happy New Year

A bit belated I admit but better late than never. My blog has been down for a while due to technical problems but my husband is a bit of a whizz and has sorted it all out.  So as he’s put the effort in I thought I’d better get back into the blogging habit. A […]


>Long overdue

>Belated thanks are owed to Random Knits. We did a swap at the end of last year and with everything that has happened since I hadn’t managed to say Thank You. The lovely Donna had a skein of Wollmeise that she wasn’t particularly attached to and I’ve always wanted to try it and adored the […]


>Some knitting

>I’ve been knitting a bit over the past month or so but DH has been so busy with the house that photos have been unavailable. However today he was a star took loads for me. First up my failed February socks (again): ‘Not to be’ Embossed Leaves My spi is 8.6 & my feet are […]


>Koigu joy

>At the weekend DD very kindly put her hand into a bag and chose my February ‘Personal Sock Club’ yarn: My February Personal Sock Club yarn and this is what she chose: Purple Koigu KPM I already knew my gauge with this yarn as I’d previously attempted to make Laburnum but it wasn’t to be. […]


>An update on knitting…

>well almost. So far this month I’ve been finishing stuff & knitting little things. Little things to be worn by little people, a very new little person to be exact. However two WIP’s are still OTN and another yet to be cast on so photos will happen in another post. In the meantime I have […]


>Wonderful gifts

>Last week I mentioned that I’d taken delivery of a couple of parcels & now it’s time to reveal all. I’d ordered a Goknits sock bag from Socktopus & it’s already proven to be really useful: GoKnits Pouch Inside is my latest project with a few notions. The bag is splash proof (always useful when […]


>Hip Hip Hooray!

>It’s my birthday today & as always St George’s Day to boot. I really wish it were a public holiday & then I won’t have to use a days holiday to ensure that I don’t have to work every April 23rd. When I went on the Rowan course I took advantage of the £1 balls […]


>Christmas gifts received

>Warning this post is picture heavy! After the horrendous Christmas Day we had I didn’t get round to blogging about what I received for Christmas. DH was a star, & with loads of emailed suggestions, spoilt me rotten: First up from DH (purchased from Socktopus) a copy of the new sock book from Vogue: Vogue […]


>Stash musings

>Again I can’t post information or photos of what I’m knitting due to the pending festive celebrations. So instead I’ll talk about something close to many knitters hearts: STASH! I have a big stash. There I’ve said it upfront & am being totally honest with myself & you all. The last four months on a […]


>Long time no blog

>It’s been very busy in the blueadt household recently. Memorable occasions include DD starting Secondary School. That was the whole reason for our house move & she’s settled in well. We chose a house that was in between the two school sites so that she could walk to both & obviously this had to mean […]
