In a rather unexpected twist, I currently have something in common with Prince William (!), in that my wife is self-isolating after being a contact of a positive Covid-19 case. So until next week that means separate rooms for sleeping, no hugs, staying 2m away from each other when we are in the same roomContinue reading “Cabin Fever”
My plan of knitting some hexiflats to add to my Beekeeper’s Quilt was a good idea. The queue outside the vaccination centre was very long (but at least it was dry), so I knitted whilst waiting beforehand.
Following last week’s excitement of getting the Little Orme Hat pattern and The Little Orme Collection out into the world (and photographed at the Little Orme, too!), there has been a real change of activity in the past couple of days. I’ve done lots of knitting on my garment commission and I *so* wish IContinue reading “What’s New Pussycat?”
Can you believe it’s six months since I launched this blog? So the website is six months and one week old!

Alternatively you can buy the pattern on its own for £4 directly from me and it willContinue reading “She’s a Rainbow”
The pervasive sound of pneumatic drills is going on outside, which has led me to write this week’s post earlier in the day than planned. You won’t hear it, but if I try recording anymore of my online knitting course right now it will be very audible on that. Maybe once they’ve gone home (theyContinue reading “Oh, the Weather Outside is Frightful!”
Several things have improved or moved along since last week’s post, which is great. After bemoaning my lack of kit sales – I sold one (Heart in my Hands Mitts Kit)! Admittedly to a friend, but it was through the website/payhip shop and she gave me a great shout-out on Facebook too. My Beanstalk ThrowContinue reading “It’s beginning to look a lot like Advent!”
The past two days have seen me pretty much glued to my computer adding still pictures to the notes for my first online course. I had previously selected all the images I wanted to use as stills from the videos, cropped them down and saved them in the relevant folders ready to upload, but thenContinue reading “OK Computer”
