Glade Needle Size Problem Update

I have heard back from Rowan and have some useful information to pass on about the Glade Hem edging. (In case you’re wondering what on earth I’m blathering about – I blogged about my suspicion that the hem edging needle size was wrong in my last Glade post.) Firstly – I am not alone. Kathryn […]

Glade-Strapped Up Like a Gladiator

My elbow/hand/wrist pain is finally coming under control. 🙂 My GP showed my the twisting wrist action to avoid at all costs and the penny dropped – it was going mad at crocheting the Granny squares that did the damage! The elbow pain was “golfer’s elbow” (medial epicondylitis to the medically minded). I turned away […]

Learning Fair Isle – First Socks

I promised I’d show you these, from my extensive “Pre-Blogging Archives” in my last post, Fair Isle Space Invaders. They are my “I’m gonna teach myself Fair Isle” project socks from Rowan’s RYC Classic Home book – the Snuggle bed socks. I made these a couple of years ago. I wanted something small that I […]
