It’s the time of year that we all look forward to and dread in equal measure (or I do anyway). There’s too much to do and too many things that could go wrong. You can be the most organised person in the world and yet you’ll find something two days before Christmas that you forgot… Continue reading It’s almost here….
I love Fibreshare. My friend introduced me to the concept last year and I have taken part in every round since. I love putting together a parcel for someone I have never met and thinking that it could bring a little bit of joy to their day. I like the challenge of buying for someone… Continue reading Do you Fibreshare?

OK it’s probably not. I ordered some new tips last week and opted for the Knitpro Karbonz. I’ve been using them for a few days now and I have decided that actually I quite like them. They are more expensive than my usual Symfonie Wooden tips, however these won’t wear in the same way. The… Continue reading Futuristic knitting?
