A very happy belated birthday! Those socks are very cool, I love the colours :)
Thank you Grace. Very interesting. Over the past few months I have thought a lot about what small changes I can make in my every day life. I will definitely look into the food I buy and where I buy it!

Wow what an interesting interview. I had no idea agriculture contributed so much to climate change.

This is such a great tutorial. Seaming is so important to a professional finish to any knitted article. My one tip when doing increase or decrease on a garment is to do them a few stitches from the edge so you don't have to contend with 'steps' while seaming.

Not a good idea to read this at my desk, because I AM NOW CRYING TOO! Oh you poor little love and your poor mommy, I bet it was a bad few hours, but so glad you've recovered and all is well :)
Oh we are away this year, or this would have been perfect for an Easter lunch. Thanks as always for the inspiration

832 stitches!! Wow, that's a loooooong row. I bet it's hard to say, 'oh just let me finish my row' with that project.
Oh dear Freddy, I fear you may have a little (um or big) admirer.

Barcelona is amazing. You will love it. The hop on hop off bus is such a great way to get around and we saw the whole city from the top deck of three on a particularly hot day when I had bad blisters on my feet. The beach is beautiful! You will love it.
I couldn't ever justify the shipping cost to the UK, which is as much as the magazine, but I've now found a UK distributor so I can enjoy it along with you all.

Lovely shawl. And fringe, well that's pretty important on a crochet shawl.

That wrap is just awesome! I love the stitch and the colour and the pepperedness and well just everything.

I love the Hansel shawl. I have a kit to make the half one. May take this to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival.....although I'm really dithering about what tour knitting to take, having two long train journeys and a pre festival knit night.

Oh Freddy. I'm sure it won't be a long trip.

She looks very excited to be on that mountain!! What a wonderful way to spend a day, and then to still have a sew day. Why not :)

I had my project sort and prepare at the end of 2016, so have a long list of things to make and selected 6 to do by the end of March. With the Edinburgh Yarn Festival in mid March I need to clear some room to have a lovely stash shop while I'm there!! Happy new year to you dear Freddy dog.

I think my husband would like that jumper! And so quick. Well it wouldn't be quite that quick for me but i'll give it a go. Aahh beautiful bag, I have one too, in grey.

Relaxed family time is just the best. Our festive season has been a long one and we still have a few people to see so we'll be gifting well into the new month. I do love the colour of your gloves. And that yarn does look scrumptious!

Thank you lovely lady for your kind words on my throw and for answering my question. I think holes along the shaft is a much better design and I might ask dear husband to do that on mine so it's more workable and I can ditch the ugly plastic clamp!

When you say you replaced the peg with a short wooden needle, does that mean the centre pole has holes in it? My swift, a modern one, had a wooden screw to hold the umbrella up but the thread wore and it kept collapsing, mid wind. I now use a very ugly plastic clamp, that my husband gifted to me (!!), to keep it up. I was thinking of buying a new one but I'm sure the same thing will happen. I wish I could get into a big tidy mode!
