Mending Yesterday was the first day in I don't know how long where I wasn't in crisis mode. There wasn't any homework to be caught up on, no supplies needing to be bought, no promises that I needed to make good on; it felt rather weird.

Work in Progress: all the chocolate Perhaps due to my constant craving for all things chocolate. My favorite is dark chocolate with any kid of nuts or dried fruit. What kind of chocolate person are you? ;-) Thanks for stopping by! Here I document my love for wool, knitting and spinning.

Mary raises sheep: California Variegated Mutant, Romney, Blue Faced Leicester, Wensleydale, Shetland and other cross breeds. She also keeps white, red, brown and grey goats, as well as Alpacas.

Blossoming time Thank you so very much for all of the kind comments on the previous post, I am still processing the amazing win and happily my wrist seems to be completely back to normal now, so knitting is back on the menu. After another cold snap bringing snow our way last week things have turned more spring-like here.

Home from EYF I'm home from another magnificent edition of the Edinburgh Yarn Festival and am just blown away. This was a tremendous year in terms of MAXIMUM JOY FACTOR, seeing lots of my favourite people, and getting to enjoy a truly inspiring marketplace emporium.

We interrupt this interruption… This is kind of the second part to accompany my last post. You see, when I interrupted all my other makes at the weekend to whip up that shawl, I also had to interrupt that make too because I had a holey emergency! Can you see it above in my little strawberry there.

Tips for keeping your crochet straight One question we are asked a lot is: "Why does my crochet go wiggly?" This is usually because you have either made too many or too few stitches in a row or ended it in the wrong place - or possibly both.

Quick Quick Easter Makes I frequently forget that over the years I have made loads of crochet patterns which are great for Easter. There are a number of patterns which are perfect for a non-chocolatey gift on this very blog. You are welcome. But also don't forget that my books also have some cute bunny makes.

I'm feeling better…. I'm feeling much better, thank you very much. I was a very, very sick little boy. I was listless. I didn't eat. I threw up. I slept round the clock. I didn't jump on any furniture. I didn't even eat my poop. All my usual symptoms when Mommy goes out of town.

Weekend Interruptions Rather then try and stop it rolling, I decided to go with the flow and indulge in a quickie little weekend project. I didn't have enough yarn in any one colour to make Annette's pretty shawl, and I wanted to keep things simple, so I just selected a stitch pattern and used that to whip up a smaller, slim-line, crescent shaped little number.

Year of Projects 7: Week 38 My apologies for the photos; this yarn photographs very oversaturated particularly in the yellow / orange tones. You'll have to take my word for it - the colourway is very pretty, and not as harsh as the photos suggest. There were lots of mods to get to this result.

FO: Tambourine cardigan I have had a busy week in which I did not spend much time at home. So my weekend was dedicated to finishing up a near FO. Most likely I've complained on this blog at length of how I'm not a fan of knitting things in pieces and having to sew them up.
