New start

Time for a new(ish) start… In the last FIVE MONTHS (how ridiculous) I’ve been up to a few things… I baked…* Orange and lemon cupcakes… Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes… WEDDING cupcakes! My most nervewracking order to date! I knitted…* Just needs a matching hat now… And some more… I went to Spain* (and took some […]

Bad blogger

Two whole months since my last post. But I swear I’ve been busy(ish)… … Lots of knitting (just a small selection)… … A bit of playing with my camera and some Christmas lights… … And a quick pre-Christmas trip to Barcelona (more on that later). x

Moar cupcaeks

I’ve been asked to make 100 mini cupcakes for a party next month, so I thought I had better make a practice batch… I normally make giant cupcakes, more akin to muffins, but I think the smaller versions are actually a bit better – much less sickly. These cupcakes were supposed to have pillarbox red […]

Cupcaeks, om nom.

Well my last post was post 150. And what a distinctly underwhelming post it was. Today I have not much better, but I do have sparkly cupcakes. Pink and sparkly, for a baby shower (let’s hope it doesn’t turn out to be a boy…) In other stuff, I’ve made some scary realisations… My yarn stash […]


I’m not quite sure why I blog any more (which I suppose is evident in my lack of posts). I’m just not sure I see the point. Anyway, this is all I have to show for the last couple of months, craft-wise. Mittens On A String This was a nice little pattern to knit – […]

Week 8-10

Yep, it may be cheating, counting one project as three weeks’ worth of my Project 52 thing*, but I made the rules and that’s how I’m rollin’. Wee baby blanket, idea nicked frominspired by gingergooseberry I had to rip rows, nay, whole squares, out so many times, I’m really surprised that I did actually finish […]

Week 7

I know I’m getting further and further behind with my Project52 challenge, but I’ve been busy with exams, assessments, coursework and a hell of a lot of procrastinating recently. I mean, I’m usually procrastinating, but I like to think at least I’ve had a valid(ish) reason 😉 Anyway, I have finally finished a project 🙂 […]

Week 6

More Ribbed baby socks Week 6 was a bit of a cop-out – more baby socks. But I’m trying to catch up, and they were a quick, easy knit, I promise there are more interesting projects in the pipeline, honest. I need my yarn winder to start on one (a pitiful excuse, but I’m going […]


I’m really not doing very well at this Project52 thing, am I? *facepalm* My raglan jumper has sort of ground to a shuddering halt – I got halfway down the first sleeve before realising I really can’t get away with doing no shaping whatsoever, and I don’t think I have the willpower to undo it […]

Week 5

As promised…! For want of a better name, “Cabled Mitts” I’m really pleased with these – they were originally intended for my Folksy shop, but I like them so much, and I didn’t keep track of the pattern as I knitted the first one, so I’m not entirely sure they are completely matching… Just an […]
