What do you make when you only have one word to inspire you?
Determined to give my family and close friends a knitted gift each for Christmas 2017, I set out a plan of action to select the ideal design, with a very definite criteria.
Did you see the Tumbleweed rolling lazily by just then?
My blog has sat dejected and unloved for some time now. So much so, that I’ve even been toying with putting a stop to my rambles and searching for something new. It’s always been the closest thing I have to keeping a journal about my creative life, mixed in with a little more of me than I originally intended to share.
However, like a lot of things in my life at the moment, it could do with a good shake to get the dust off and then leaving outside to air for a few hours.
I have just got back from the most glorious dog walk on the farm, I was so warm and cosy, that it’s quite difficult to think of it as December. Cuppa brewed and Gluten Free Hobnob at the ready, it’s time for a little blog update, with Spotify for musical accompaniment.
At this time of the year I should really be listening to Christmas songs, but it feels more like a Mamas & Papas sort of day, with the December sun shining through my office windows.
So, you see, everybody in Berlin has a perfectly marvelous roommate. Some people have two people.
I’m still not completely convinced by these photos. In my head, I know exactly what I’m after, but it’s not coming out quite as I’ve planned it.
Blimey! It’s been a pretty bonkers few weeks round here and in all honesty there really hasn’t been any time to blog.
There can be no more excuses though, as I really couldn’t delay posting about Blacker Yarns Brushwork on the Olann and Blog any longer and to do that, I kind of needed to post here too.
As far as my blog goes, I think it might be best if I write September off. For some reason I just haven’t been able to get my $#&% together enough to sit down and type, even though I’ve had tonnes of things I want to talk about.
It’s the first day of a new month, so I’m hoping that’s enough of an incentive for me to pull my finger out (here’s hoping) and get back into my usual blogging rhythm.
Oh my god I spelt rhythm correctly without spell check. It’s the little things.
Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like they’ve taken three steps forward, but two steps back of late?
Honestly it sums up my daily life at the moment in a nutshell and I don’t even seem to be able to get my knitting to behave?
I’m not going to bore you all, by going over my Yarnfolk Festival of Wool experience last Saturday. I rambled on about it for fourty minutes on the video for the Olann and You Tube Channel.
Needless to say, I had a great time and made a couple of purchases. A very modest haul, even if I do say so myself.
