Christmas cast-ons

Last year I cast on a small project for ‘me’ on Christmas Eve, I’m not one for mounds of yarn being turned into Christmas gifts, but I’d been working on a few projects for others last year so it was nice to make something just for me. I planned the same for this year butContinue reading “Christmas cast-ons”

I’m back…

I’ve neglected this blog (again!) but haven’t neglected the knitting or crocheting. My last post I lost my way… but I won’t feel guilty was in June and in the lead up to that I found it difficult to regularly blog. I wasn’t in a routine and in trying to track my progress I endedContinue reading “I’m back…”

I lost my way… but I won’t feel guilty

But it’s been 6 weeks since my last blog and I’ve ended up feeling guilty for not writing – that can’t be right, can it?

February and March Week 9

I’ve done it! Another week has past and I’ve finally done it… week 9 of 2019 and I’ve crafted everyday! I’ve had a week at home with no work travel and despite a pretty crazy week I’ve made sure I found at least 30 minutes each day for a little crafting. Let’s see if IContinue reading “February and March Week 9”
