That's how I live on the edge too - crazy daredevils :)

Yea I think just going with the flow and not overthinking it will help :)

I’ve been struggling with getting back into a proper running routine after the holidays. To be honest I’ve been struggling to get back into any sort of a routine but hopefully that will just sort itself out. I had the absolute best of intentions to get in every single training... Continue reading

Remembering my shopping day in Dublin - hard to believe its already been a whole week since I left....My day began on O' Connell Street with the Spire on a grey overcast day that was slightly chiller and it seemed to be just on the cusp of raining – perfect... Continue reading

yes an intentional unique design element - that sounds much better :)
If it turns out nice I'll happily share it with others :)
My "deadlines" are also so stupidly arbitrary too like must finish this sock in 1 week or I need to do this in the next 3 weeks....there's rarely (if ever) an actual deadline just me trying to finish faster to start the next project :)
And this is one of those "could take 4 years" kind of blankets :)
Oh I know what you mean I found it really hard to knit a blanket during the summer it's just too hot to have all that wool on your lap
Wheaten looks fab - cables and lace whats not to love!!

I really want to try the toe up two at a time socks I hear people talking about about - but so far I haven't had that second sock syndrome I also hear people taking about either!! It's a little addictive making these small knits isn't it
Oh I knew for sure my first pair would have to be purple - it's my favourite too :)

I might have not yet fully unpacked my suitcase, or put on the clothes wash that’s now overdue….or even managed to get my running schedule back up and going properly but I have managed to find the time to start a new knitting project. Any surprises there? About a month... Continue reading

Thank you :)
Yes completely.....I just finished a second pair last night....and to think I said not that long ago "why would someone knit socks? That's weird!".....I'll just hang my head over here in shame of my former self :)
Ha ha unique is a nice way of putting it! But hey if you're gonna mess up at least fully commit to it right :)

This is the first of two knitting projects I finished while in Ireland (and let’s not even start discussing the ones I’ve since started and planned out yet!). The other project I finished was my cardigan which still requires a good blocking before I can call it fully complete and... Continue reading

Things have been a little quiet around here lately because I went on a long awaited trip home to visit my family in Ireland. I spent the time eating a ton of food (mostly bread and chocolate), bringing Charlie for walks, watching movies with my little brother, knitting while chatting... Continue reading

By the time this post goes up I’ll be somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean on my way home and this little tote bag is safely stowed away in my checked in luggage in the depths of the plane. Last year when I went home I brought my mam over the... Continue reading

great coordination skills - I'll expect nothing less now from all future WIP posts! Those are so cute though aren't they!
... I hugged my mam ... I spent quality time with my little brother ... my godson started walking, talking and became completely grown up! ... I played fetch with Charlie, my first puppy (now my parents dog) ... I went into "town" with friends ... I heard anyone but... Continue reading

The long body section of the Oldtown cardigan is still taking forever and still hurting my wrists when I work on it for too long so to give myself a little bit of a break I’ve starting working on a pair of socks. My first pair of knitted socks and... Continue reading

2015 miles in 2015 sounded cool until I did the math and realised that's approx 40 miles a week...every week! Wow that is impressive and ugggghhh inducing indeed!!

I can definitely feel the difference in the training schedule this time around. Not only am I incorporating some speedwork into the mix but I’m (meant to be) running 5 days a week compared to 4 last time around. I say meant to because I didn’t manage to run all... Continue reading

I turned the mini quilt top, which I was making to practice my piecing, into a sewing machine cover. I had been off to a flying start and had managed to get quite a few of the corners to machine up perfectly when they were only 4x4 squares. Unfortunately when... Continue reading
