Yet another super busy week, but considerably more successful than last week, luckily. My lovely new sock needle arrived on Saturday (along with a generous gift-yarny friends are some of the best!) so I cracked on with it straight away. I’d never used 9″ circulars before and knitting with such short needles takes some getting…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-14th June
In the last week or so I’ve been lucky enough to be nominated for two more blog awards, so I thought I’d combine them in a BOGOF post (coincidentally, my daughter’s current phrase of choice is ‘bog off’, though she mainly aims it at her brother!)

My son, who is 5, seems unaware of the events,…… Continue reading The Pumpkin Patch
As I mentioned in my WIP Wednesday post, we decided to decorate our bedroom this week. This had been in the pipeline for a while, but we hadn’t agreed on an exact timescale.
