Stash And Craft Purchases

Now that the weather has warmed up and sunshine has seen fit to visit our little isle, it is high time for the early risers and bargain hunters as Car Boot Season gets underway. I’m not sure how popular/well known car boot sales are in […]

Life Happenings

I’ve never been one for talking much about my life outside of crafting on my blog. Some people seamlessly drop in a mention of how good their daughter’s piano recital was half way through a post about a new hat they’ve knit, or talk about […]

Choose Your House: A Re-Poll Is In Order! Last Poll Null And Void…

Choose Your House: A Re-Poll Is In Order! Last Poll Null And Void…

Due to circumstances beyond my control (i.e: Blogger polls playing up) some of you may have noticed that the poll started yesterday has been, shall we say, less than reliable… I checked yesterday afternoon and there had been 54 votes cast. later that evening the number was down to 19. After getting back up to 48 later last night there were 24 votes this morning.

I have spent a couple of hours looking into embeddable poll alternatives and have decided to use Easypolls.net as a simple solution. Let’s hope this one is a little more reliable. The new poll is now in the sidebar and the old one deleted, so please take one moment to re-cast your vote as it will help to make navigating all the blogs taking part during Knitting & Crochet Blog Week even more exciting.

To re-cap on the post from yesterday:

Are you a busy bee that dips into the golden nectar of many projects with your needles and hooks? Do you calmly indulge in the slow comfort of your next squishy new project? Do your wise and inquisitive monkey fingers seek new challenges in each project as you test your abilities? Do your peacock feathers shine in the form of beaded shawls and highly decorative projects?


Have you managed to decide what house you will be in for Knitting And Crochet Blog Week? If so, vote in the sidebar now and declare your allegiance! If you haven’t yet decided, re-fresh your memory using by following the link above and come back when you have decided which house you best associate with.

Winter Greetings

This blog has been quiet recently as the complicator that assembles all my thoughts into words and passable HTML has been broken. I’m hoping that the break won’t be too long and that we will be able to get a new laptop in January to […]

An Interview With Me, By Simply Knitting

An Interview With Me, By Simply Knitting

A couple of weeks ago I agreed to a short interview for the Simply Knitting section of The Making Spot website, ahead of the publication of a couple of patterns I had made for the 100th issue, which also happens to be a bumper Christmas issue, and the interview went live today.

Hopefully I will write about the two projects in full over the next few days, but for now there are a couple of previews of the two project that I designed for the issue, as well as some Mimi-babble. Blush.
