Oh No He Isn’t!

Just trying to catch up a little with news.

I picked up these gorgeous buttons from Textile Garden at the East Sussex Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers Exhibition. I am a bit of a Magpie where colour is concerned so bought these with absolutely no projects in mind, but you can never have too many buttons.

Needless to say I have cast on a Cardigan from the Noro Mini Knits book which requires 2 buttons and none of these match colour wise. So that means I have to buy more.


Apart form the buttons link to this post title, the best pantomime in my opinion is here.

The title changes every year but it’s basically the same slapstick and they give out Newcastle Brown Ale and Wagon Wheels.

Tradition, you can’t beat it.

Enjoy your weekend.


Pizza anyone?

The Base.


The toppings.


Sunday Tea.

Was Yummy.


Finally I have figured how to get pictures off my phone.


I was going to show you a couple of pictures of WIP’s today, unfortunately someone has pinched the camera to take pictures of trains!

So I have found one of my favourite pictures to add a bit of colour to this post.


As you can see it was taken a while ago, on our trip to Sissinghurst in May.

Will try and get back later in the week with the WIP’s but I am currently churning our Fingerless mitts of this variety, Scrunchie Handwarmers.  A very quick and effective knit which we are hoping the teenagers will appreciate! The spinning has come to a halt again, I can’t believe how 8 extra travelling hours a week has made such a difference but hopefully that will change after Christmas.

 This weekend I had a hair cut booked in York,that was until the hairdresser sold up. With hair as fine as mine I am nervous of trying new hairdressers, especially of the expensive variety so I cancelled the appointment and instead used the trip to transport the Christmas shopping North. I wouldn’t even dare to try and count how many times I have travelled up and down the East Coast Mainline but Friday saw the demise of yet another Franchisee, National Express East Coast and my journey home yesterday the appearance of East Coast directly run by the Government. I sadly have an interest because I come from a Railway family and did in fact work for Intercity East Coast. Hope thats vague enough for you not to judge me too harshly.

Back to the cleaning.

Enjoy whats left of your weekend.



Bedtime already and I haven’t been here to tell you about yesterday. Nor have I taken any photos, so that’ll be next Saturday when I next see daylight. Not sure work would like me carrying sock blockers, Fibre and Yarn to photograph, but then they do know I’m strange.

Anyway, had a fabulous time yesterday very inspiring. Chatting with lots of like-minded people and enablers(Jo!).  Linda dropped by, it’s always nice to meet people who take time to read my ramblings. I may have required an extra seat on the train for my purchases AND it definitely was me that won one of the lovely hand-woven Silk Scarves in the Raffle.

The Little Gem(Spinning Wheel for the uninitiated!) has been released from captivity and I have practised on some yummy Merino so watch this space for progress.

Night, Night. x
