Yarning away

This shawl has been around the world. I started making it on the 19th of October, on my way to the states. It’s heard a few stories, this shawl has. It’s helped sooth some nerves after a night of crying babies. Opened up conversations with people…

The Crochety Crocheter

I travel to work on public transport. Most times the trip is fine. ¬†Having taken up crocheting again, and with a self imposed deadline to finish a couple of projects I crochet whilst commuting. I don’t wear headphones because I will miss my stop and end up someplace…

People tell me stuff

Not as busy as some other people

Certainly the last week has been exciting for some, with the true colours of people shining through. I liken it to seeing a lovely apple or peach in the market and picking it up only to find it is rotten underneath. As The Husband & I were seriously embarrassed by…

Heather’s story

I was going to name and number the posts that come about because of crochet – along the lines of ‘Crochet tale # 105), however I have realised that is going to be too much work. I also just realised that when I typed # 105, I am quite possibly one…
