Working on this new pattern on and off over the last year has been an exciting and slightly novel thing for me. It's the first time I've made a pattern from scratch with the intention of it being a pattern,... Continue reading

Thanks so much Amy. I think as I get older I'm not so good at the ups and downs that life sometimes provides - I'd be very happy to be quiet, still and a bit bored! Knitting does help though :) xxx

thanks so much for the tip Sheila. They're such funny creatures to go sitting like that on absolutely nothing! x

Thanks so much Tess. I feel horribly out of touch with everyone and am looking forward to a quiet-ish week ahead with lots of time to visit blogs and drink tea, so will be popping by to find out what's been happening with you soon x

Thanks so much CJ, that's so kind. Things are settling - though up and down with 2 hormonally charged teenagers in the house! I hope to pop by and catch up with your news soon - am really keen to see what's been happening on your allotment. xxx

Thanks so much Kaylene. I'm really excited to share this new pattern with everyone - hopefully in the next few days. Knitting is more of a cooler weather activity - I find it harder to knit when it's really hot but like you say air conditioning helps - not that we have that here (not really needed in the British climate) but we do have a big fan! Your winters sound much more appealing than our cold, damp and dreary ones! x

I do wonder sometimes what the animals get up to all jumbled up in the basket - I've not yet caught anyone swapping clothes but you never know :). Thanks for the good wishes Abby, it's just such a busy time of year that it's easy to get a bit swamped, but we're fine! x

Thanks Linda. Underneath that top layer of my bag is tangled chaos so not very appealing and I do seem to have a large amount of projects on the go. You'd be very welcome to dive in and I'd enlist your help in untangling everything! x

Thanks Sandra, happily the elbow is doing well and allowing me to knit, though I'm being careful to take regular breaks and not over do it! x

Your real bunnies sound lovely - will hopefully pop over and see them shortly. I'm sure your veg will catch up - it never ceases to amaze me how quickly things grow once the summer is here. I know what you mean about having time for it though - I only have 1 lot of homework to supervise and I struggle to get much done, so the fact that you've even got seedling to pot on is good going! Thanks so much for stopping by x

Thanks so much Ellen. The trampoline is definitely favourite at the moment for Toby - though I'm not sure if it is with the neighbours since his excited shrieks are quite loud!

Thanks so much Barb - I'm blushing now! It's lovely to know that you've learnt a little extra from knitting the patterns and that you've enjoyed them - that means a lot to me. I'm quite excited about the next pattern, will reveal all soon :)

Hi Ellie and thanks for the welcome back. I do hope to have some finished animals soon (ish) - will send out emails to the mailing list when they're ready (if you're not on this and want to be, just let me know). I think we have had better weather than you recently but hopefully summer is on the way for you too x

Thanks V, I hope some finished prettiness will emerge from my bag soon - it's getting a bit too full up with WIPs at the moment! xxx

It's so nice to know that Candy has such a lovely home and that you're enjoying her, thanks so much Jennifer. Yes, Toby is really enjoying his trampoline again - he's just come off it for a custard cream break but will be back on it again before bed!

The trampoline is the best thing we've ever bought for Toby (though it doesn't get much winter use). Glad you've got one too for your son and that he loves it. I went to a lecture once on sensory processing that went some way to explaining why bouncing is such a favourite activity for some autistic people - something to do with vestibular perception(which is now one of the officially recognised 7 senses that we have). Anyway, it's such a great way for them to have fun, enjoy the outside and get a bit of exercise too! Hope you have a fun summer too and that we get lots of dry days so Alex can enjoy his bouncing x

Thanks Carissa. It's funny to think that in your part of the world you're in winter - our wintertime seems such a long time ago now summer is here. Knitting is a good winter activity though - keeps your hands warm while you're doing it and you have a cosy toddler at the end :)

Thanks again Lori. It has been a busy month - sports days, parents evenings, appointments and just general family stuff but all is well thanks, x

You're right Jill, patience is the cure. Thankfully it's on the mend now and I'm listening to it and resting if it twinges and tells me I'm doing too much! Thanks so much for your thoughts xxx

Thanks Lori, I have missed being here. Kind of ran out of things to say for a bit - hope to be around a bit more frequently from now on :) xxx
