Ravelry shop!!!

Oooohhh, I just couldn’t resist the cuteness of the Ravelry mini mart today!  Especially when I saw that one of the things you could buy was a Bob badge.  I entered the competition at YKnit specifically to win that badge!  Needless to say I didn’t win.  So today I ordered a Bob badge and a ‘Daily Dose of fiber’ t-shirt (American Apparel version)….

Oh what a lovely day…

Wasn’t the weather beautiful again today?  I can hardly believe that we have  begun our summer here in the UK, no doubt I’ll be disappointed when it turns back to rain! I went to Chesterfield today with my mum, sis and niece Lizzie and I think I might have got a little sunburnt!  Either that or it’s… Read more »

Lizzie’s cardi…

I’d forgotten how rewarding knitting children’s clothes can be! And how quick and easy they are!  I decided to knit Lizzie her long overdue cardi from the Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino 2 book, it’s the little baby bolero.  It’s so cute but I’m using up leftover yarn so it’s going to be stripey.  At the moment I’m… Read more »

Bad backs, work and all that…

I don’t know where to start really – what a bad week and a half I’ve been having!  I hate to moan but I just haven’t been able to get my head straight.  In some ways I’ve had a great couple of weeks, including selling all of the stock I made 2 weeks ago! That… Read more »

Finally recovered…

Well, after a week of feeling pretty crappy I am finally starting to feel better.  For some reason my cold left me with some strange sick feeling that has put me off my food all week!  It also has meant I’ve not been able to do much, or eat much for that matter!  I managed… Read more »

Knit lit…

Have you ever read a novel about knitting?  I’ve read a few but have been finding myself drawn to the depressing as opposed to the fun recently!  Last summer I bought The Friday night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs (soon to be released at the cinema I hear!) whilst on holiday in St Ives.  Me and the… Read more »
