      No Comments on Reclamation

I made a point to strip out some old listings in my Etsy shop, and to chop the beads and findings free to reuse. Well, not the headpins, and some of the lobster clasps have oxidised slightly. They shouldn’t’ve, ’cause they were in a dry dark container, but *anyways*. I’ll sort the beads in a bit, then I have something… Read more »

Sparkle Sparkle

      No Comments on Sparkle Sparkle

I know, I know, I’m always cooing over my slowly silvering hair. But it looks so pretty, how can I not. Not been up to a lot of anything today, which is lovely. I finally made it to the rib on the ‘cursed sock’, as Mum referred to it. I mean, ouch, true. I can’t remember the last time I… Read more »


      No Comments on Proof!

I’ve been, slowly, gently, trying to get Batman to lay down in my lap. He’s just stood there for the last couple of years, and like… it’s painful? It’s awkward? But he finally decided to pay down and Z ever so kindly got the evidence on camera. I don’t know if I’ll manage to get a repeat, but I’ll sure… Read more »

The Nip

I heard Z make a charmed exclamation, and spotted the cause as he said, ‘That should make some good blog fodder.’ And it does! She was so cute, and her eyes so big, and I just want to bury my face in that belly. There’s even a short video, which I might well chuck onto Facebook. Because cats. 😀 Had… Read more »

The Weight

      2 Comments on The Weight

Mum read an article last week about weighted blankets, had we heard of them? Well yeah. *laughs* She said she wanted to buy us a pair because she thought it might help us get better sleep. I mean… not saying no; these things aren’t exactly cheap. I’ve heard great things about them from my other neurodivergent friends, so we’ll see… Read more »

Wom Wom Wom

I knew it was only a matter of time until trying to shift our waking time would catch up to me. I managed to keep vaguely upright for an hour to see the kids off, and then crawled back in bed for a few hours. Now, I can’t habitually nap; naps make me feel even worse. Or well, I still… Read more »

The Vibes

      No Comments on The Vibes

I’m not sure what went wrong when I was trying to take this picture, but I’m digging it. I did gratuitous amounts of drilling to make another prototype for a custom order in limbo… as in, still ‘negotiating’, but wanting to show that I can bust out the goods. Work was okay. Past that… stomach is playing up and being… Read more »

Edge of the Woods

      No Comments on Edge of the Woods

I’m nearly free of the heel flap, and all the mistakes I’ve made. Like… mistakes I should not have made. Having said that, another one of my friends is in a similar place on her sock knitting, and has also been having ridiculous errors, so I declare that it must be The Season of the Witch (if you don’t know… Read more »


      No Comments on Eeesh

I don’t know where my brain has scarpered off to, but it took my ability to follow a knitting pattern with it. I have made several rather hilarious errors, many of which have required multi-row froggings. But it’s fine, really. Outside of raising my voice slightly at Smaller for ignoring my request that she give me a few seconds, it… Read more »

Cover Up

      No Comments on Cover Up

I have had this spot by my lip for the past week, and it’s really, REALLY hard to stop myself picking at it. I’ve mainly managed to today, but it has been stupid difficult. I amused myself by avoiding fixing my knitting by instead drafting two more cross-stitch patterns today. I’m happy with the results, and hopefully other people will… Read more »
