a still life of broken things

This is a homage to my lovely blue friend knitwit. We have known each other for a long time now, and knitwit is always very stylish elegant and cool, never a clumsy buffoon like myself but on Wednesday night at Knit Night she was trying to slice herself a piece of holey cheese and in some hyper slow motion moment the knife broke and went flying into her hot mug of tea which spilt over knitwit in her beautiful dress, with the mug then hitting the deck and breaking it's handle, documentary evidence is available.
Something strange was happening in our house over those 24 hours as the next morning, I broke the picture and the stained glass window

knitwit hasn't been coming to Knit Night forever but it feels like she has now - she is also part of outcast (they are a group of artists who make things) and is creator of so many beautiful things such as these from her etsy shop such as cheeky pink fairisle heart and star gauntlets or this scarlet red beret.

Knitwit loves *rolling her own*, pints of real ale , drinking tea, always the colour purple but apparently sometimes blue now, singing especially with knit night girls, retro-ness and great designers.

Watch this girl, she is coming to the end of her second year of a knitwear design degree course, I am amazed by the work she is bringing round every week and hope that once she is famous she will remember our tea drinking knit nights.

To see more beautiful pieces she has created, the gorgeous home she lives in and her lovely photos, visit her flickr page

I just have to say, I've been reading your blog and I love it. It's so real. Seems like there's little bits of you throughout all the entries.
