It’s a Yarn-Madness Cover-up! (Mystery KAL)

It’s a Yarn-Madness Cover-up! (Mystery KAL)

I have signed up to this KAL! Need to have a rummage and see what I have yarn wise!-No buying allowed!!
I have some lovely sock yarn in my stash, and some sport-weight that I bought for a scarf/shawl but perhaps need to be used for something more exciting!

A Stash Addict Giveaway!

I have bought yarn from the lovely Danielle before- some lovely rainbow yarn that I used to knit hats for Isaac and Sophia

I also have a ball of another rainbow variety( earthy tweed) waiting to be knitted up into something lovely!
So I couldn't resist joining in her give-away, especially since I have started using a spindle to spin with! I'm a bit inexpert but I'm persevering! The chance to win more fibre and a new spindle to play with has to be snapped up! I will post a picture of my current spindle and my spinning efforts soon!

Yarn Along- Flaming June!

Here I am again sharing with Ginny, can't believe I haven't written here since November!

I am knitting this cardigan which is rather appropriately called Flaming June- given that the sun is finally shining in the UK!! Knitting an adult size cardigan in 4 ply doesn't make for a speedy knit but I'm pleased with how it is progressing( I might feel differently when I get to the sleeves!). I am just finishing 'A Circle of Quiet' by Madeleine L'Engle and have enjoyed it very much- a gentle but thoughtful read.

Hello again.

So here I am again after a very long absence. In between my last post and now we have had Christmas, Easter, various birthdays, Lydia to and froing to University, Hannah and co moving off the boat and into a house in Topsham and Julia sitting IGCSEs twice!
We await Lydia's return for the summer at the end of her second year of Uni. Julia has one more paper to sit, and a place awaiting her at Sixth Form in Kingsbridge. Phil has his ML assessment in August and in between we have holiday bible club, Creationfest and a camping trip to the Lake district! I am going to try and be a more regular blogger( how often have I said that!!!) especially now we are coming to the end of our Home-Ed journey- all that free time- ha-ha!!
