Hello.  I haven't been blogging, have I?  Nope, I have been thinking, planning, purchasing, riding, and generally obsessing in every which way about my new ultra-steed.  Let me present the brand, spanking new, sparkling and delicious, Trek 7.3FX (women's specific design). This is a very sporty departure from my normal mode of transport, a sedate… Continue reading Re:cycle


Week 9 – Will it never be finished?

My week has been a bit like this, good things struggling to shine through the general murk, and a feeling the week would never be finished. Knitting It is beginning to feel like Laccaria will never be finished.  I thought all I needed to do was source some buttons.  A browse online at Textile Garden… Continue reading Week 9 – Will it never be finished?

Week 8 – There has been progress

Last weekend ambled by with me largely sitting on the settee nursing a cold.  This week the cold has continued and I haven't knitted much and I expected to have little to report come this weekend.  Yet progress has been made which makes me wonder if the elves have been dropping in and knitting up… Continue reading Week 8 – There has been progress

Week 6 Can you hear it…..

...the silence of the Pam? Oh, sorry, dreadful pun there.  I have been quiet, and now I'm all done with being quiet.  This week work has begun to slow down a bit and I have had a little more energy to do things that are relatively interesting to write about. Knitting I have to admit… Continue reading Week 6 Can you hear it…..

Week 3 – The Good, The Bad, and The Knitting

The Good We had a couple of frosty mornings in Norfolk at the start… Continue reading Week 3 – The Good, The Bad, and The Knitting

Week 2 – Bonjour mes amis

This week I worked very hard at the day job for four days, then on Friday I accompanied my sister to London to The France Show at Earl's Court.  It was a lovely day out and an interesting show; particularly interesting to me comparing it to the Knitting and Stitching Shows which I am more… Continue reading Week 2 – Bonjour mes amis

Week 1 – Back to Reality

It's been a real back-to-work week and I have been rather lacking enthusiasm, not just for work but anything much really.  It was a windy week in the UK; fortunately in Norfolk I think we had things slightly quieter than a lot of the country, but it was enough to scare me away from cycling… Continue reading Week 1 – Back to Reality


On the continuity of things

This is one of my projects that really needed to be done before the end of the year, if only because I have been intending to do it for most of 2011 and even if I haven't publicised that intention I still feel guilty for not getting on with it. I have two dining chairs… Continue reading On the continuity of things


Funny how things go

My knitting has been of the one step forward, two steps back variety over the past couple of months. This is mildly frustrating, but I'm choosing to let go of that and concentrate on it all as a learning opportunity. Yes, well, let's just ignore the fact that I already know what it's teaching me.… Continue reading Funny how things go
