Latest projects.

 This is my latest shawl.The colours have come out pinkish but actually it is mainly orange,brown and red and very striking.The pattern is Be Simple Variations available free on Ravelry.It is a very easy pattern ,one to do watching TV.

 I have started another blanket.I am doing Attic 24's Hydrangea .I am rather daunted by all that wool!!!
But my latest venture is into weaving.I have bought a 10 " Ashford loom.I have yet to start it.Watch this space.

Other things....We went to see The Thirty Nine Steps at the theatre.It is a spoof on John Buchan's book and was hilarious.It does you good to be in a full theatre and everyone is laughing.What a tonic in these gloomy days.
We also went to see the film The Children Act based on the book by Ian McEwan.Not a bundle of laughs but very thought provoking.At the theatre again this Friday to see Julie from the National Theatre and on Saturday to see Lord of the Flies.

The latest book I am reading is Take Nothing with You.Patrick Gales's latest.


  1. You have been busy, busy. It’s ages since we went to the theatre, it does have such a lovely atmosphere. I like something I can knit or crochet while watching TV, looking forward to seeing your new blanket xx

  2. Love all the pretty colors of yarn you've stacked up and look forward to seeing your blanket. Nice hooked me when you said easy and can work on it while watching TV, will jump over to RAV and check it out.

  3. I'am glad to read the whole content of this blog and am very excited,Thank you for sharing good topic.


  4. I'm looking forward to seeing your journey into weaving, it's something I've never had a go at but I love to see what other people do. What a pretty shawl, I always like to have something easy on the needles that I can knit whilst watching TV.
