Happy International Women's Day! So I didn't get around to posting my update on my work in progress post yesterday as I was a bit busy. So here it is. Last week we were thrown back to the depths of winter (from a much colder country) here in Ireland last week. The country came to … Continue reading WIP Wednesday on a Thursday! (7)
Here it is - another Wednesday another work in progress update! The big news here is that it has snowed in Dublin and it's freezing.

At the moment I am working on a short-sleeved top called Elfe (by Astrid Schramm) which is a pattern I found while browsing on ravelry. In a previous post I described how I selected Drops Flora for the project and included details on the tension squares I knitted before starting.

Kind of like the six degrees of separation thing - where … Continue reading Knitters knitters everywhere!
Gaaaaaahhhhh! So this week has been a bit of a disaster WIP wise. I just haven't had the time to do as much knitting or crochet as I'd like to. Then when I did do some knitting I ended up ripping it back. Twice! 😦 So what DID I do this week? I did a … Continue reading WIP Wednesday 3
It was my birthday very recently and I got a little bit of money so I decided to treat myself to some yarn. I won't lie. My husband struggled to understand why I would want to spend my birthday money on yarn when I already have enough for quite a few projects. When I pointed … Continue reading Happy birthday to me!
