I would have, but I was terrified it was full of moth lavae. It went straight in the dustbin!
“What’s on the needles now?”, I hear you cry! Erm actually it’s “on the hook” – Crochet hook that is. I’ve got a little Hat Crazy the last couple of weeks – it started with this! The Rowan Margarida Hat in Rowan Cotton Glace (or Handknit Cotton.) I knew I had a bag of left […]
EEk! I’ve not used my work Charity day!😲 We are strongly encouraged to use our one day a year for charity work – it’s a great idea 😍 Hmmm – what can I do? The obvious answer was the little hats for the Innocent Smoothies “The Big Knit” campaign for Age UK. I’ve blogged these […]
At my new job, we are given one day a year to do something for charity as part of our corporate responsibility program. Wonderful! But what could I do? What unique skill do I have to help a charity? I have made these little hats for The Big Knit (a fundraising thing helped by Innocent Smoothies […]
You know I was promised a picture of my glitter ABBA hat when I wrote about it in my last post, Eurovision ABBA Hat? Here it is being modelled at the party 😀 !!

So here is a quick and dirty blog post of the ones I missed, Completed Knit Reports at the end… The Little Red Hat… A project to use up […]
Work has been quite busy – The move to Agile and a pretty heavy training course with lots of home work has stolen my blogging time. I have, however, managed to keep up my “Commuting Knitting” 🙂 Can you guess what I’ve made? Is the title of this post a spoiler? Ok – here it […]
I’ve finished Ben’s Second Chance Hat.. See here for the reason for that name! I made particularly quick progress returning from Bristol on the train – for all the wrong reasons…. Happily head down and knitting – I looked up and didn’t recognise the next station… “This train is going to London Paddington isn’t it?” […]
As I’ve said, I’ve been busy – knitting, work, driving to Bristol and back. Imagine my delight when I was welcomed home from a long drive by this… From iPhone The lovely Ben had prepared a delicious meal of Fajitas, all the trimmings and a hand crafted Margarita 😀 😀 😀 You’ll remember that this […]
