In comments to my 1–4–13 post re Downton Abbey, the DUCHESS OF DUKE STREET was mentioned by several writers, as being superior to DA. In my thinking, that is one of the very best British TV Dramas that was produced during that wonderful time in the 70–80's along with UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS and a whole list of others – below is...

I am finally succumbing to the DOWNTON ABBEY craze... had watched the first two episodes sometime last year and was not impressed enough to continue; besides I had the first two seasons of FORBRYDELSEN (The Killing) to enjoy: unfortunately since the 30 episodes are subtitled, it put a damper on any multitasking – i usually have the laptop open and...

Once in Royal David’s city Stood a lowly cattle shed, Where a Mother laid her Baby In a manger for his bed: Mary was that Mother mild, Jesus Christ her little Child. He came down to earth from heaven, Who is God and Lord of all, And his shelter was a stable, And his cradle was a stall; With the... Continue reading

These knit poppies are super quick to knit and I love that we as knitters can make them with... Continue reading

7 May 2010 DEDICATED knitting lessons for pupils in Shetland will cease this year as far reaching local authority cost cutting measures start to bite. Shetland Islands Council services committee on Thursday agreed to save an annual £130,000 by dropping a subject seen by many as fundamental to Shetland's cultural traditions. When it came to the vote in the council... Continue reading
