Work Space

Since my other half is technically a remote worker we do have a dedicated office. It’s in the only room in our house with closets. I’ll never get used to the lack of closet space here. Anyway I digress. It’s not a horrible space but I prefer the view out over the garden at ground […]

My Commute

I know in my brain it’s Tuesday but in my heart it’s Monday. It’s my start of the week because the sprog goes off to see his friends in creche and I get a chance to sit and think or work on projects. I love our chats along the way but what I love more […]

FO Friday | Machine Knit Clapotis

Forgive me crafters it’s been 2 weeks since I’ve worked on any of my WIPs. I tried to knit a bit at craft night last Friday but I was still in too much pain. It’s easing up although I still can’t crochet or hand knit comfortably. The knitting machine has really been a saviour for my sanity […]

Back to School

It feels like Monday. It is & and it isn’t, it’s my Monday. The 1st day of back to school and while only a few hours have past since the sprog returned to creche, it seems like ages. I guess when you’re used to only a few minutes on your own anything longer is amazing. So I’ve been totally frivolous this […]

My Favorite Jumper

It’s another chilly morning and I refuse to put the heating on this early in September and there’s a dampness in the air. It’s the perfect time to throw on my favourite jumper. As a maker it’s slightly embarrassing to have it in my wardrobe. This jumper isn’t made of the best material, it’s old, […]

I Like Big Swatches & I Cannot Lie

My larger projects are winding down and the pattern I’m working on is nearly ready to go so my mind has turned to what’s next; a cardigan or jumper. The more I chat to other crocheters or knitters, I realise I’m a bit of an anomaly. I love swatching. It allows me to get to […]

Post Festival Life

Well, camping was a major success even with only 2hrs sleep on the 2nd night. Sprog had a fantastic time playing with the pack of “big boy”, messing on the slip and slide and generally running around exploring. We met so many insanely lovely people and their kids I could have cried. After we realised the […]

Friendstival Bunting

I’m super excited because we’re going camping for the first time as a couple and a wee family. The lovely manager from Sprog’s creche and her husband put together a fantastic family friendly camping festival with attendees sharing their skills. Friendstival! There will be fire making, wild foraging, basket making and a bunch of other […]

FO Friday | Achemilla Shawl

It feels like year’s since I put up any finished pieces but the dust needed to settle on this one. A bit of space between working on the hap and talking about it definitely has helped. I made this as part of Knit British’s Hapalong. It was such fun to take part and seeing all the FO’s […]

Making Time

This time last week I was all about focusing and exploring. After doing some of the exercises, I realised one of the biggest things I feel holding me back is time; the perceived lack of it & the pervading feeling that I’m too late. I’ve always had that feeling of being too late or behind, that […]

Photo Friday | Evening Constitutionals

Our evening constitutionals have become a highlight of my day. It’s an opportunity to get out after dinner and blow off any extra steam for the toddler and clear any cobwebs that might have settled for the adults. As a family, it’s a slice of slow time together and it’s magical. I love having this great big expanse […]

Focus & Explore

When my news of my visa approval came through, a rush of ideas exploded through my brain as if a dam burst. When I wasn’t allowed to work, I didn’t dare think them out loud for fear of jinxing the process. Now I’m free to live and work as any average person anything is possible. All this […]
