I have the luxury of a few days of staycation, playing with the cat, unwinding several balls of yarn and just readjusting my head space for 2014,Without realising how, I managed to rediscover my groove or “Flow”.
Goodness, I have been away for so long that Flickr looks completely foreign to me! It’d been busy two months, I went away to New York and came back with more photos than time to upload and share with the world. In the meantime, I’m fiddling with a bundle of silky sun shine thanks to… Continue reading Bit of sunshine – back to the digital land
I have a backlog of posts that I never got the chance to write, but I’m going to take a leaf from other bloggers’ virtual book and dedicate days to write posts. Stay tune to see how this will eventuate. TINA was lots of fun as always, but more of that next time. Sales was… Continue reading Cropped Cardigan with Leaf Ties
I actually finished this a while back in July, but didn’t have time to take a photo of it or blog it properly. The Ropes and Picots Cardigan was probably the fastest cardigan I ever knitted, I finished it in just over three weeks. It had enough interesting details such as the ruffled edging and… Continue reading Back to the knit
If you are walking to work in London today and happen to see something resembling the wooly creation above, you might wonder what it is and who did it and why. The following clip provides a hint to unravel the mystery, but for more details go here.

(Aching, grumpy and so jet lagged, the concept of time had magically transformed into a beautiful abstract work of science fiction in my head, but at least I was in one piece, more or less). It feels a little surreal to be back when… Continue reading World Wide Knit In Public Day 2009 with moustaches

A friend had a spare ticket to their show at the Annandale (thanks B) and although I haven’t heard of them before thought they sound rather jolly from the bits… Continue reading A pulse, a veritable internet pulse
You know you’re back sharing the internets when uploading any file bigger than 100kb will take almost an hour! My brother claimed he’s innocent, but the jury is still out on that one. Day 17 in the visa waiting game and lo and behold I am actually starting to enjoy it. Perhaps after being screamed… Continue reading The number game
I have been a little slack when it comes to posting about my knitting project. A few are on the go, most undergoing some kind of frogging so I ended up having less to show than the beginning! I did managed to finish this Frock Camisole last winter, but with it being winter there was… Continue reading Back to crafting
No Stitch & Bitch this week due to the city experiencing post snow commuting trauma. Rather sad as I was looking forward to swapping survival stories. To make up here are some photos from last week’s S&B at The Make Lounge in Islington. Tucked away in Islington is a gorgeous little craft haven. The Make… Continue reading Snow Day post knitting
