I’m so bad!

I haven’t written on here in months!

I know, I’m such a bad blogger – Claire even told me off

I have a ton of excuses! Mainly, my Mac died (I’m devastated!) and WordPress is shite on an iPad!

D and I spent a lot of […]

I am such a bad blogger!

I am soooooooo bad! I haven’t blogged in ages so I’m going to get right on with it!

Week 29

Week 29 was my good deed week and other than giving Isis a haircut, not much else happened – it was a good week though! I’ve started a new experiment; I’m keeping […]

Week 26

Here is this weeks picture:

Week 26

Wimbledon started this week so I put aside all my knitting projects so Claire and I could start Color Affection and I’ve got quite a bit done over the week.

I’ve managed to do a little bit of spinning each evening […]

Some finished stuff


I’ve been a bit lax in blogging about knitting lately.

I can’t remember what I’ve told you about so I’ll give you the whole shebang on this next project.

Aquarius with first Shetland braid

I spun a 3 ply heavy laceweight yarn from 100g of a […]

A bit of what I’ve been doing lately

Right, so where are we…..

I guess the first thing is; the eggs didn’t survive – I don’t know whether they were duds to start with, or whether my handling killed them. But they all shrivelled up within a week of me moving them.

I recently got to be […]

Second Tour de Fleece Yarn

I have been spinning….a LOT!


I spun a bobbin of merino/silk in the colourway Aquarius. I think merino/silk is one of my most favourite blends to spin – it’s just so effortless.

As I only had 100g of it, I decided I would ply it with something else.

So I spun […]

First Tour de Fleece yarn

It’s Tour de Fleece time again and I’ve been spinning pretty much non stop.

I decided that I would finish projects already started and I finished the first one today.

Wheels in motion!

This is a little collage. It shows the yarn being spun on my Ashford Joy, […]

Tour de Fleece 2012

I’m participating in the Tour de Fleece again this year. I decided this year would be the year I finish some of my WIPs.

I had a lot of items started on spindles, but I decided a while ago that I just prefer using a wheel and the spindles didn’t get […]

Soft and Snuggly

Despite the sore elbows, I have managed to finish another shawl!

I used the gorgeous alpaca/merino that I spun during the Tour de Fleece this year. I was planning on using all 3 skeins, but my guage was off and I only used 2.

This is probably a good thing as it blocked out to […]


During the Tour de Fleece, I spun up some SW Cheviot. I was extraordinarily proud of it as it came out super fine – the best I’ve ever spun!

I knew by the time I’d finished it that it was going to be Mandala. This shawl is fascinating to knit! There are four sections and […]
