What do you do when you find evidence of moths in your stash?
I’ve just re-learned to crochet and it taught me some broader lessons.
Hmmm…seems I haven’t been very creative since I moved to Australia! Well, I have a bit, but not good about blogging it and admittedly, less so than I was in London and Brussels. I did get married recently and knitted a shrug for myself, using lovely wool bought during the delightful Yarn Corner retreat atContinue reading “Knitting for my wedding”
Two of my friends have got married this autumn and I offered to knit both of them a shawl or shrug to wear with their outfit. I’m very happy that they both accepted, and in fact chose very different things. Jane had a very traditional church wedding in Chipping Camden in the Cotswolds, and choseContinue reading “Wedding spree”

Here’s a taster of what I’ve been up to: Knitting This remains my default creative occupation, probably because it’s so relaxing, and can be done when I’m hibernating at home at the weekend. I’m on RavelryContinue reading “Gone but not inactive”
There are few things as lovely, in this age of electronic media, as coming home and finding a handwritten envelope on your doormat. I had that experience today. To enhance the pleasure of the whole experience, the envelope bore unknown handwriting. A handwritten letter from someone unknown! How delicious! I’m sure we’ve all been thereContinue reading “Unfinishable”
Something strange has happened to me since I arrived in London. I have started talking to people I don’t know. Not in a crazy-lady kind of way, but if there’s something to say.
