Come and join in

If you are reading this, the chances are that you are interested in fibre in some form or other. Perhaps you are a knitter or crocheter. Maybe you have a blog of your own. Well, why not join in with the 2nd Knitting and Crochet Blog Week?

If you don’t already have a blog, why not seize this opportunity to start one? (I’d recommend beginning at – it’s free, it’s easy, and it is credible… unlike some other blogging systems that I could name) Show us what you are up to with your yarn and needles/hook.

Eskimimi did a great job with organising the 1st Knitting and Crochet Blog Week last year and has again this year provided a set of useful prompts for your seven daily posts. A useful tagging system allows readers to search and find all relevant blog posts, wherever they may be.

Ravelry users may find out more at The Blog Hub.

I shall again be attempting to keep up with the prompts, though I may inveigle a little spinning and weaving into my personal take on this knitting/crochet week. I look forward to reading your entries too.

Bread and butter for one two things, for instance. However, I do have a beef:Continue readingB-B-B-B-B-Bovril

It’s coming…

It’s coming…

We are getting ever closer to our new van. It is supposedly 13 days away. I say “supposedly” because we have been here before and I shall not quickly forget the horrors of last year when Mr Snail had to stay near Paris for several nights after travelling up on the train at 6am and… Continue reading It’s coming…

Well, that was unexpected…

Well, that was unexpected…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan. Heidi was looking gorgeous, considering her age, and we both agreed that the fact that they had asked… Continue reading Well, that was unexpected…
