On the Hooks and Needles: Squares for three Shuyler Blankets (details here) and a knitted bear (currently MIA!).

Review: Rowan 47

Something I really like: Parcels!

Episode 2: Baby, It’s Cold Out There!

Hello from the frost-bitten Cheshire Plain here in the North-West of England! In this episode I talk about snow, labyrinthitis and get cross with the cat.

On the Needles: I talk about the Sparkly Monkeys, which now have a pair of legs, consider the negative progress made with the Sock Yarn Blanket, ponder the fun that can be had with Scarf Journeys (details here and here) and Traveling Scarves (mine is here, although full photos are not yet up as it’s not quite fully finished – oops!), and admire the strength and love involved in making squares for the Schuyler Blanket Project (Ravelry group and webpage).

Review: Regia X-mas, a 4 ply wool, nylon and metallic thread blend sold in 100g balls and six festive colours.

Something I really like: My new Nespresso coffee machine!
