It was very pleasing last night to see how many lovely things my group had made to donate. It certainly encourages me to keep on with my efforts. I’m a bit stymied by a raging headache that meds don’t want to touch, but. It’s not like a headache can stop me knitting. I think. Tomorrow we have excellent company. I… Read more »

As much as I love making stitch markers, I especially like it when I have ideas that use up materials. In this case, making use of my little hand drill have given me ideas of beads I can drill a larger bore for, and thereby expand my range of larger markers. The ones on the upper tray are for 10mm… Read more »

I had a parcel to run down to the Post Office earlier, so I crossed the street to take pictures of the flag when I noticed it had become ensnared with the neighbouring tree. It’s not just caught — the end that is attached to the tree is holey, and that is probably making it snarl worse. I’ve commented to… Read more »

Z took today off because he was helping at school this morning. So we thought about it, and decided we’d do a spot of child-free shopping, nab a bit of lunch, that sort of thing. He had a voucher for PC World, and I wanted to nab some bits from Hobbycraft, so that works out, as they’re in the same… Read more »

I finished off that first scarf this morning, and tied it into a neat little bundle. I’m hoping it might encourage the ends to uncurl… probably not, but it’s worth a shot. I pulled some chunky out of my stash and started another one — this one with the appropriate slipped edges. It’s not far enough along for me to… Read more »

I don’t know if I am going to finish it tonight, but the scarf is nearly done. I checked it against my personal wingspan, and it’s bigger, so that’ll work for most people who don’t want scarves twice as long as themselves. Beyond that, nothing really to report. Need to go upstairs and process laundry with the girls before tucking… Read more »

I switched from playing Project Hospital to Two Point Hospital, because some DLC I didn’t had was on sale. So of course, me being me, I start again from the beginning for the… fifth? Sixth? Time. At least I reachieved one of the hardest things, being getting all the awards in one year. I don’t see the ‘No Deaths’ one that often,… Read more »

I got the second hat finished today, but I had to make a purchase last night to expedite my process. I somehow didn’t have DPNs in the size I needed, so thankees, Amazon next day. I know it’s a bit selling my soul to the company store… but next day. On an item that I’m pretty sure I cannot pick… Read more »


      No Comments on ‘Lo

So yeah, forgot to finish a post last night, and don’t have much to add to it here, ha ha. It was basically ‘Hi I am alive’, which I continue to be. I can take a moment to pat myself on the back for a spiffin’ good workday; I’m finally nearly caught up with myself after half a year of… Read more »
