I'd not recommend viewing the video to anyone who is sensitive - it is not necessary to view the suffering in order to understand that there is an issue but I'd definitely recommend reading the Love Knitting article which is an excellent unbiased and rational discussion of the issues.

Writing up knitting patterns is quite a challenging pursuit (at least I find it so, probably because my brain has been scrambled by 15 years of parenting). I'm sure though that there are plenty of talented designers that breeze through... Continue reading

Happily the half term school break wasn't as wet and windy as I'd feared and in fact we were rather lucky with mild, sunshiney days perfect for lots of lovely wood walks. Toby is such a happy boy in the... Continue reading

Firstly, thank you so much to everyone who entered the giveaway in the previous post. I so enjoyed reading all the comments, by turns funny, warm, moving and altogether a lovely reminder that it's so often the little things that... Continue reading

As mentioned over a month ago, I have just celebrated the start of my 9th blogging year! I published my first blog post in September 2006 on the day before Toby started school - he was still 4 years old... Continue reading

The last few weeks have been much busier than anticipated, mostly due to the complications of family life. In the meantime Autumn has arrived here, bringing wet and windy weather, falling leaves and cooler temperatures which happily has meant I've... Continue reading

Thanks so much for all of the good wishes for Toby. He did indeed pass the Custard Cream test and was back at school for the rest of last week with only a slight snuffle. (for those of you who... Continue reading

Just as we were starting to settle gradually back into term time routines Toby has come down with a mystery virus. He's not in a bad way (just his usual high temperature and lethargy) but having him at home for... Continue reading

Walking in the woods is a regular activity for us but not something that I ever seem to do on my own. It's usually Toby and me that wood-walk and Toby is always very much in charge. There's never really... Continue reading

As you might have noticed if you visit with me often, I do rather a lot of knitting but sewing is never part of my days and in truth is something that I find slightly scary. I've never felt that... Continue reading

Some moments from the first two weeks of our school break... Amy's summer hair, dip-dyed blue (which will hopefully wash out before she goes back to school or it will be time to get the scissors out!) Days of absolutely... Continue reading

The final few days before the long school summer break are always held in sacred regard here. It's the last chance for six weeks to savour complete quiet, unadulterated by Black Veil Brides screaming out of Amy's room or the... Continue reading

The last couple of days have been so lovely weather-wise. We've spent almost every waking moment outside and it's been hard to get Toby to come in from the trampoline even after darkness has descended. He's also discovered how fun... Continue reading
