Almost on our way

I’m just waiting for Skein Queen and Kira to arrive and then we are heading off, to The Bothered Owls yarny party but before we go, it’s time to let Worsted Knitt know that her slightly rude comment has won her a prize of a freebie Saltire Mitt patterns ~ hurrah We have some Saltire […]

The Saltire

It seems very fitting that it’s today that you get to see the Saltire Mitts, being St Andrews Day and all. I was getting carried away about the ideas of all things Scottish, remembering why I loved drinking Irn Bru so much as a treat when I was younger just so I could practise my […]

Always good things happening

Some eagle eyed visitors may have noticed that the blog has moved but it’s for a good reason to enable more things to happen from this one space instead of running round all over the place adding bits and pieces – hang on, that sounds like my life in the real world, running round here and there doing bits and pieces.

It's time to move on

It's time to move on

Shockingly that the last post was entitled *Seasons Greetings* but it really has been that long but not because I don’t want to be here but because things have over run and priorities have shifted (i.e. work life went crazy) and there were secret projects under way that filled the rest of the time up.

I made banana loaf

I made banana loaf – it’s delicious – enough said really. And whilst I am eating it, it’s reminding me of last week and yellow things and cake and knitting and how I never got home at a reasonable time any night (not because of tripping the light fantastic but work and meetings and openings, […]
