Long time no blog!

Well I’ve been a bad blogger in more than one sense….

I’ve been poorly ‘ick for practically the last 2 weeks!!  A nasty summer cold that has meant I’ve been coughing lots (spare lung appreciated if anyone has one – as I think I’ve coughed mine up!), an elephant sat on my head, and general aches, tiredness and irritability (probably no-one noticed the last one!)

Can tell I was ill – as I didn’t even knit for about 4 days – as no concentration and couldn’t focus eyes properly!!

 Now still not brave enough to tackle any lace but have attacked some lovely socks!!

September sockamania, these are brill…  the first time I’ve actually managed to do the right pattern in the right month!  and the first time I’ve EVER done fairisle..  but am loving these…

The pink is hipknits and the blue / green is middle earth both BFL

I also finally blocked the Hanami last night!  I’m entering it to the summer show!!

Just need to take some arty farty shots – but some of it blocking are below – I’ll add a proper summary with stylised shots  :o)

  1. Hi, hope you’re feeling better. Thanks for your comment on my Della post and offer to help (just got back from hols so only saw it today). My real problem is not understanding the pattern repeats on the charts – any advice you can offer on that one? My email is smugsheep@yahoo.com

  2. HI! Loved your FI sock from sockmania and thought I’d check out your other work. Imagine my surprise to discover you are in Harbury!! My grandparents lived in Harbury for many years and I would visit from the states regularly. Best wishes!
