8 years of blogging!!!
I am definitely starting to struggle 🙁 Thank you if you are managing to put up with my infrequent blog posts.
It has been a tough year – loosing Purcey in the summer hit us so hard. Nothing has been right since. My knitting seems to have been up and down too. Gaping necks and wrong tension and frumpy looking items have made an appearance. Even a jumper I loved (the Purl Soho Sweater from my New York trip) got put in the washing machine and tumble dried by my beloved husband – it is now a felted Kitty blanket. My husband may never be forgiven…
Our attempt to kick ourselves back to life with a fabby holiday in Bali – worked (complete with holiday Kitten Scarf knitting adventure)- until a week later when Ben came down hard with the flu which he kindly passed to me for the next 6 weeks! 😮
OK. Enough “Boo Hoo, woe is me” I’m now perfectly set up with excuses for why I have been a delinquent blogger this year 🙁
My blog post rate has been horrid….

What happened to it?
|Grey and cream stripe cardigan from the wonderful Purl Alpaca||Worn regularly – desired by several of my female work colleagues!|
|Huge, red, chunky roll neck jumper in fisherman’s rib.||Worn a bit when it’s very cold – not been cold enough this year.|
|Pale blue funnel neck pullover with yarny souvenir from work trip to New York||Ben put it in the washing machine and tumble dryer and shrank it. I’m still upset at the loss, even after he bought me a lovely replacement jumper!|
|Red chunky hat||Doesn’t really suit me – waiting for a very cold spell to wear it.|
|Cream cable jumper with peplum – based on Icon dress||Loved to bits, worn a lot and much admired.|
|Fun Boot toppers||Worn a lot with boots 🙂|
Purl Soho Stitch Block Cowl (
|Super drop stitch pattern cowl||Again, hasn’t really been cold enough – work with my duffle coat though|
|Salmon pink linen sweatshirt||worn a lot in the summer months despite the too wide neck|
|The most crazy and colourful fairisle socks||Worn a lot and loved|
|Grey lace edged cardi||Worn a bit – not so sure she suits me|
