Limping back …. with a podcast

It's a strange thing, but each time, recently, that I've decided to offer some old stock at a reduced price health problems have reared their ugly heads and there has had to be a delay. I won't go into details, but here is a little video, not to explain the situation, but to show you… Continue reading Limping back …. with a podcast

Untitled, and why not?

Stash and Scrap!

My first stash blanket of the year is coming along nicely. I'm also managing to incorporate some longer scraps as you can see from these joins. Once the little ends are also woven in they will be completely invisible.   I know that the theory of stashbusting is that no more yarn is bought until… Continue reading Stash and Scrap!
