Days 77 – 90 Running to catch up!

Days 77 – 90 Running to catch up!

Erm – oh my gosh – how did I get into this pickle.  I know I haven’t posted for a little while and I had a little catching up to do but somehow it appears to now be almost 2 weeks worth!  Eeeekk!  I have to say that one of the hardest parts of this challenge … Continue reading

Day 76 Pubs, football and yarn

Day 76 Pubs, football and yarn

For those of you who have been following this for a while now you might remember the lovely surprise yarn I received from Canada a while back – on Day 56.  Well ever since I had been trying to decide on a project to use it for – it was such lovely yarn and such … Continue reading

Day 74 & 75 Sunshine in Burnley?

Day 74 & 75 Sunshine in Burnley?

Anybody who has ever visited Burnley will have been intrigued by this post title – as they will know that this is a rare occurrence!!  Horizontal rain is far more par for the course in this little corner of the country.  And actually Day 74 wasn’t very different – rain, a bit of sleet, biting … Continue reading

Day 73 Blanks!

Day 73 Blanks!

Uh-oh – a big fat failure I’m afraid.  I don’t have a single photo of anything with yarn that I can show you on here … it was a stressful day.  My current job finishes at the end of this month and I’m in the process of deciding what to do next.  The previous evening … Continue reading

Day 71 Spreading love on the train!

Day 69 WIP vintage cushion covers

Day 69 WIP vintage cushion covers

I am a nightmare for bags and piles of work in progress (WIP)!  I know a lot of knitters who are exactly the same – there must be something in our psyche that is always looking out for new projects, yarns, colours and we just can’t knit quick enough.  The frustrating thing is that often … Continue reading

Day 68 Bleurgh!

Day 68 Bleurgh!

Sunday (Day 68) was rubbish from a yarn point of view.  I had a long train journey home from the NE so, in theory, plenty of time to make something.  But sometimes your mind (and heart) just isn’t into it.  I thought I’d try the quick freebie crochet flower kit that came with a magazine.  … Continue reading

Day 67 Mobile knitting

Day 67 Mobile knitting

You might recall that I said I had Bridesmaid duties this weekend.  This involved a trip up to Darlington for a make-up trial for my friend Leanne and then we were fitting her wedding dress together so I could make the final alterations.  I had worried that this might be a bit of a challenge … Continue reading
