Episode 95: Redivivus

Hello again! I know, I know, it’s been aaaages…

On The Needles and Hooks

I have just cast on Pond Street by Alison Moreton. It’s a simple shallow crescent scarf with a chevron pattern in garter stitch. I’m using Titus by baa ram ewe.

I’m also working on a sample for one of the crochet kits I’m working on with Agrarian Artisan. It uses 15 colours of Stanley Sock, a new weight of my Stanley Falkland Merino.

Gremlin Attack!

Arghhh!!!!! the Gremlins have got in! Between 47 minutes and 51 minutes of Episode 14, you are going to be subjected to the most bizarre bit of audio – I’m describing cow colours and I seem to have been taken over by an alien from Dr Who. You can make out the words, but really, I’m only talking about colours and cow’s backsides. Just fast forward! Sorry!!!


She’s Back!

I can’t actually believe it, but Lilly is home – filthy, ravenous and cross, but home! I decided on a last ditch attempt this morning by ringing around the local vets and lo and behold my own vets thought they had a cat brought in yesterday that matched her description. I hot-tailed it there after work and it is indeed my Lil, found nearly a mile away. She’s lost her last canine tooth and had virtually eaten the surgery out of house and home, including trying to swipe the vet’s sarnies at lunchtime. “She’s feisty, that one,” was the last comment made by the nurse. No kidding!
