OK, so today was a horrible weather day. It rained heavily all last night and this morning I had to be up early for a very grown up meeting at work. The sky was dark and it was still raining and miserable, and the roads were starting to flood as I drove to work. I spent the day running from one part of the university campus to the other for meetings, becoming progressively more like a drowned rat as the day wore on. And the last meeting was one of those ones that left me feeling a bit twitchy and agitated. The small person was exhausted today too, so an early night for her, and a bit of yarn therapy for me. Some new and beautiful skeins in the post to squish (shhh! I have posted pictures on my instagram feed if you want to see them) and the chance to cake some others ready for a bit of a making frenzy. The picture shows my latest yarn caking set up in my room, and the yarn pictured is ‘Psyche’ by Unbelievawool, which is just a little bit lovely.
I am due for some leave over Easter, so I want to have a nice pile of yarn cakes to take with me so I can get plenty of hooking in, and maybe even a pair of knitted socks. And then when I am back I will upload some patterns to Ravelry and link to them here so you can see what I have been busy working on for the last month or so. And I should be able to finally tell you about one of my top secret projects this weekend, I hope, so watch this space. In the meantime, don’t forget to let me know what sort of things you struggle to find patterns for, or what sort of stuff you would like me to have a go at designing for you. At the moment I have some ideas for clothing for children and adults that I want to have a crack at. But I am up for a challenge, and its a good way of getting a pattern named after you if its a good one!
One final note, thank you all so much for your support and enthusiasm so far! The blog has taken off much more quickly than I had dared to hope it might. I have plans to reward you for your support so watch this space!
