Mystery Solved

I'm really delighted to be part of the Midsummer Day's Dream series over on LightingLittleFires.

This is a series of 12 creative and thoughtful projects which LittleFire introduces:

'Starting on the 21st of June, the Summer Solstice and longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, I propose a fortnight (yes, 14 days!) of crafting, baking, music, articles, fun, community spirit and with any luck a little bit of sunshine.

Every day for 2 weeks something new to make, do, eat, drink, laugh about, think about or listen to will be posted right here for your enjoyment, in the hopes of making your start to the summer that little bit sunnier.'

The projects so far include yoga, baking, crochet and knitting. Can't wait to see what's coming!

Isn't it a cool idea?

PS: Just to be clear - the typos in the instructions are all mine!

Recently I was invited to contribute something to something.

It's almost ready.

Chez Plum does it again

I just have to share this stunning project with you. Aren't they amaZING! More great pictures on Ravelry here.
I've been flirting with crochet for quite a while now, but this project has flipped me over the edge into a full blown passion. I want them so badly that when I first saw them I had to remind myself to continue to breathe in and out.
Of course, I'll need some....er...um...(cough!)...help with reading the pattern, being completely crochetignorant an' all.

Let you know how I get on...

WWKIP 2010

This year the Wicklow Knitters invite Fiber Fans of all kinds to join us for WWKIP 2010 in the courtyard of Mt Usher Gardens, Ashford, Co. Wicklow. There's outdoor seating in a lovely setting and great choices for coffee/tea/cake/buns or whatever you fancy.

Bring your yarnie stuff and come prepared for blazing sunshine or pelting rain...depending on the whim of the gods.

If you have any unwanted swatches or knitted squares or pompoms bring them along. There's a rumour that some flora things might get festooned with some yarn things.

Fun fun fun folks!

If you can't join us, I hope you have a good day somewhere.

At last the camera was put to good use.

Here's a taster. More coming soon...

Okay OKAY!


I know that I'm a little bit behind the knitting, the blogging and the posting.

Here's something to keep you entertained.


For those of you checking in from overseas. And those of you nearer to shore.
