talking on the radio…

Is it just me or does everyone else feel like singing the song heard it on the radio? I know it’s an ear worm so only click if you feel like it, (I’m thinking I may need yellow sweatbands to work that look though).

But here we are, proof that Bama and I were on the Radio.

If you feel even more inclined to hear Bama and I talk about knitty things, you can listen again here – apologies in advance, but you can find us from 1hr 8mins until 1hr 50 mins (don’t worry, it’s not just me!!). It won’t be there forever which will probably make people grateful but I am talking about the Outcasts.

We’ve also been knitting up our new banner for Iknit, we’re there in the knit lounge and the amazing Skeinqueen will be having her own stall no less.

We’ve had a busy Summer, a fantastic trip to my parents, then working on art projects in Reading, preparing for the bairns changing to a *big school* and a trip to the North Lakes to visit really good friends (we lived with each other over 20 years ago, now I feel old!). My dad sent me something wonderful in the post – I had found this card and it had reminded me of the airplanes my dad had made with us when we were younger and it made me long for an easy way to visit them more often (i.e generally not involving budget airlines) so I sent it saying my wish. A few days later a paper airplane with it’s own handmade pilot arrived and my dad being the joker he is had covered the paper with anecdotes and quips playing on the word plane. That made me smile. So the gnomes are a window display I saw and made me think of him (he has a blog, casagnome)

In the Lakes, we escaped from life and had some time hanging out with sheep and seeing the new plans for the Scales Plantation ~ the landscape there takes your breath away and there are many pictures I will show you soon but here is a little one of the boys, walking.

So time is ticking on and later today we will be heading to the new school for a visit. It is a strange feeling that I no longer have primary age children, that my children are growing up and are confident, independent, creative and hurtling towards the future. What does it mean for me? Maybe time to change my world? Or more time to do things? In the meantime I’ll carry on, working up those designs that I have in my head.

    Those snowflake catchers look really lovely – is it skein queen yarn?

    You and Bama were so good on the radio – chatty and informative – I am in total admiration. Your dad’s gift was great but he sounds a bit like my dad in the puns department! Snowflake catchers are really lovely looking.

    I will listen to that, it sounds great! My boy is off to high school too. :(
