Remember these?

They all represent rather a lot of ends of yarn which I’ve been collecting. I had a plan, but had no idea if it would work!

What can you do with a bag of indeterminate short lengths of yarn?

I’ll tell you all about it in a couple of days.

Links are now up and running. You will find them from here.





Through gritted teeth 

I’ve been working on a little project in the background for a while now. I started it towards the end of October, and it should have been finished. However……


It’s another c2c blanket – this time in a single yarn. The yarn is Stylecraft Special DK and the colour is Peony. A few of  the colours in this range are made with two colours twisted loosely together rather than just a single colour. It has been really hard going. While it has been a pleasure to work with all the other colours, this yarn is not comfortable to work with. The yarn splits and it has been impossible to continue except in good daylight. It was meant to be made with 7 balls of the yarn, but I am so fed up with it that today I decided to make it just 5 balls. I want it finished by Christmas…… it’s SO tedious!!

But I will press on….

Have you had difficulty with any yarns – wished you hadn’t started something? I’d love to know

It’s a bad photo but……


This is my favourite scarf, and I’ve decided to base my next throw on this collection of colours. What do you think? Next I’ll purchase the yarn – but that will have to wait a day or two. I’ll need to decide on a pattern too. Maybe ripples? Let’s wait and see how it goes after a few little experiments.

I also thought I’d try Bloglovin as a means of promoting the blog – what do you think?
