Kathy ran a marathon last weekend – I know crazy impressive right – and ever since she’s been bugging me to make her a microwaveable heat-pack so that she can relieve some of the stiffness and knots she’s picked up in her shoulders and neck since. When I say bugging... Continue reading

I like the soft muted colours of the mittens - I think it's because I'm on a bit of a grey yarn kick at the moment. And look at you with you name in print - awesome :)
Cheers Susan - I love your cowl aswell :)
I know the labels are so much fun - I bought them on a whim from knitpicks when I was trying to get my order over the free shipping threshold. They were a little pricey $4.50 for 4 labels but I think they're great
Love the applause, that's sweet! :)
Oh I agree, trying to concentrate on so many new topics all day is so taxing but it's such a great opportunity to be exposed to new ideas and concepts!
Toggle Commented yesterday on San Antonio Texas at SnapShots & WhatNots
Cool - I did a bit of running along the riverwalk while I was there and I ended up seeing a lot more of the city than my friends - nothing even close to a marathon though :)

Ha too much Mexican food - I'll be happy to not see cheese and beans for a while!

I finished the Anna blanket about 2 weeks ago – the day before I left for San Antonio actually. The last time I shared my progress I was just about the start the middle panel and I was debating what I would do. The pattern uses a lattice type stitch... Continue reading

Those woolly sheep are fab!!! I look all the motifs - it would have taken be FOREVER to do all that stranded work - I'm super impressed!
I was lucky enough to get to go to San Antonio Texas last week for a conference for work. I was exhausted going into the trip….an unexpected overnight work trip to Charleston on the previous Friday put pay to my planned weekend of relaxation and careful packing before the trip.... Continue reading

These photos make me smile, especially since I’m away from home on a work trip and missing my little family at the moment. I’m surrounded by Christmas decorations in hotels, restaurants shops etc but nothing compares to the moment when you’ve put all your decorations on your own tree, stand... Continue reading

Ha ha well it's not going too far - just to the other side of the couch :)
Toggle Commented Dec 8, 2014 on Finished: Rainbow quilt at SnapShots & WhatNots
It’s finished…it’s finished! This is easily the longest crafty project I’ve ever undertaken. I started this rainbow quilt back in June when I naively thought that two months would be long enough to get the whole quilt finished in time to gift it to Kathy for her birthday. I decided...

I don't know if I'd call me inspirational...but thank you! I know the feeling about the times - when I first started everyone else I knew was doing 10 min miles and I was delighted the first time I ran a whole mile without stopping and bonus the first time I did it in less that 13 minutes. Honestly though I would argue that those first 13 minute miles were harder than the ones I'm doing now. Keep at it, and celebrate every achievement!!
Oh it's great that you've heard good things about the race - I wasn't sure when I first signed up but the closer it gets the more excited about it I become :)
that city tweed yarn is one I've been debating about trying for a while now - it looks great!

Ha ha well lets hope not for your sake :)
Somehow it’s already week 7 of my 12 week training plan, which is great because it’s closer to race day (and more importantly a trip to Disney World Florida), but it also means that I’m now getting stuck into the harder longer part of the training – the part where... Continue reading

Awh Kristen you flatter me!
Thanks Laura, yea we had a touch of colder weather last week (for about 2 days!) and there were so many dogs in the park wearing sweaters - and now I'm seeing more and more people wearing Christmas sweaters too!
Awh I love the name's very similar to what I hope to name dog no. 2 (eventually!)
Thanks - that's a high compliment indeed, I have a new appreciation for your Pluie cardigan after knitting this!
After my not so great attempt at this pattern last week, using the wrong size needles for my yarn, and generally making the smallest tightest sweater in existence. I restarted using larger straight needles and knit the piece flat and sewed it up along the middle at the end. This... Continue reading
