Yarncrawl – The Sequel…

Do remember the Guilty Knitters’ Yarncrawl? We did another one Saturday! For those of you that don’t know, a Yarncrawl is like a pub crawl but with less booze , smoke and pubs and a lot more scrummy yarn, shops and chatter! This time there were 7 of us from the Guilty Knitters. Imagine it, […]

Baby Blue Bib…

I need a bit of a break from The Earth Stripe Wrap. Fun as it is, I felt the sudden urge to do something that wasn’t back and forth Stocking Stitch! Tracey, a barista at the Starbucks where we Guilty Knitters meet each Sunday, is due soon and we decided to each knit her a […]

Blankie – Final resting place!

Just a quickie of a post ! Remember my denim Blankie??? We managed to get the beast hung in it’s intended position as a wall hanging at the head of the bed. We had a bit of a wrestle to get Thug to let it go..He does so love to sleep on my knitting! Mewsley […]
