knit wits


knit wits, originally uploaded by memake.

a grand day out



Memake and me having our own private stitch'n'bitch much to the amusement of the staff of Starbucks at Paddington station. We were there for hours, so long that we missed lunch and almost missed the school run but we did talk about the world, life, virtuality and how to do intarsia knitting - a really grand day out.

Everything is back to normal

No more random convos or waking up to a flurry of sales and messages (well 5 a day is a flurry for me, I have to knit all those blighters by hand)

So in front of me is a list of 11 commissions, all of them equally exciting - what a grand few days, I had a ball. Thank you Etsy

Etsy front page



It's always a thrill to find that you are on Etsy's front page!

But then today has been a day of many treats, small ones that just spring up on you when you are feeling at a low ebb. After having had a strange and curious swelling of the face, burning ears and generally just feeling very pants, a large number of good things happened to me today.

I have had lovely messages from so many people wh have said sweet things, a reinforcement of how lucky I am.

Treats by strangers are included, including this lovely blogpost by an avid pebble collector who collected my pebble twins

a full agenda


Don't think I am ignoring you sweet blog or my favours have gone somewhere else (ssshhhh! outcast blog) but I have been very busy, making, sewing, knitting, creating, sticking, wrapping, labelling, ribboning (is that a word???)

We are off this weekend to the South Hill Park Christmas Fair 2007. So after Monday 19th, I will take a little breath and come back to you sweet blog.

packing my bag, ready to go


Not really but the idea of it sometimes seems good, really good, good like a mug of delicious hot chocolate would feel right now, which on a cold grey windy day would be good but not on a sunny day - so you see what I mean just sometimes does the idea of packing me bag, ready to go, seem good.

But today it is just for effect, really I am off to knitwit's, her of the beautiful house, evidence here, to meet knitwit and knitclicking to prepare for our Outcast day at South Hill Park Christmas Fair 2007.

Outcast, stand 40!
