2011

Happy New Year! Did you have a good night? 2011’s not been quite as up and down as 2010; there’s still been a few shitty moments that I shan’t be sad to say goodbye to, but we did have a beautiful new addition to the family, so I shouldn’t complain too much. I really didn’t […]

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week – day 7

Day seven: 3rd April. Your knitting and crochet time. Write about your typical crafting time. When it is that you are likely to craft – alone or in more social environments, when watching TV or whilst taking bus journeys. What items do you like to surround yourself with whilst you twirl your hook like a […]

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week – day 6

Day six: 2nd April. Something to aspire to. Is there a pattern or skill that you don’t yet feel ready to tackle but which you hope to (or think you can only dream of) tackling in the future, near or distant? Is there a skill or project that makes your mind boggle at the sheer […]

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week – day 2

Day Two: 29th March. Skill + 1UP Look back over your last year of projects and compare where you are in terms of skill and knowledge of your craft to this time last year. Have you learned any new skills or forms of knitting/crochet (can you crochet cable stitches now where you didn’t even know […]

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week – day 1

Day One: 28th March. A Tale of Two Yarns. Part of any fibre enthusiast’s hobby is an appreciation of yarn. Choose two yarns that you have either used, are in your stash or which you yearn after and capture what it is you love or loathe about them. I’ve decided to choose one yarn I […]

2010

How did it get to be 2011 already?! Happy New Year to you all 🙂 2010’s been an odd one for me. There’s been wonderful news and awful news, weddings, funerals, triumphs and failures. A few photos I’ve taken over the last year 2011 is hopefully going to bring some big changes for me, and […]
