My shop is still showing signs of life. Maybe not so much life, as residual synaptic firing. Like a chicken without it’s head. Here are two recent listings: AdvertisementsRead More Believe Me, I Was No One’s First Choice.
Here are some scarves I made long ago, a depressing reflection on my age, no one wants to have made something that could now be classed as vintage.Here’s S in a tiny scarf I made for baby C. Two different greeny threads and my first go at moss stitch. A lamby scarf for P made in […]Read More My Preference For Unmatching Sets

Last week my plaster came off. I deludedly pictured an unshackling, my life beginning anew. Deludedly, because this is just one more step in the long, tedious stumble toward health. I walk jerkily, the tension in my tight tendons and shrunken muscles an anxiety causing reminder that I must go slow. Thus, it was a […]Read More Awesome Giveaway – I Can Picture You in it Already
A new collar/scarf up on Etsy. Really love the top toggle and it’s swirly, stripy pattern (thanks NOfkants Curios, http://www.folksy.com/shops/NOfkantsCurios).

I am very happy with the Scandinavian folk feel […]Read More Nordic Niceness

Then I decided the squares needed doubling up rather than being long and skinny. Stuck on some toggles (thank you NOFKANTS CURIOS) and I […]Read More Unexpected Love
On finishing a granny square blanket I realised seams are not my strong point. Am sending out a plea into the ether. Maybe you, Obi Wan, can help. Help me make them less obvious/baggy/unperfect. Mainly when I change colour. Among the brains I’ve been picking are the crafter, blogger and etsy merchant Rose Beerhorst’s. She […]Read More Help! I need somebody (not just anybody)
Crochet. This is a simple stripe sequence that appears pleasingly random. I made it up. All by myself. I’m waiting for a pat on the head. Or a call from Erica Knight‘s agent. For the afghan zig zag stitch I chose cotton in three colours from (textiles need not be a millionaire’s hobby) Texere. I […]Read More Stand back people! Maths genius at work!
