So, I’ve been absent…oops?

I’ve been quite a bit absent from here for quite a while. It wasn’t intended, really. I meant to post, I was just neck deep in Ph.D and then in Ph.D recovery once it was done. Which really has involved sleeping, a lot, knitting and reading. And more sleeping.   I’m finally back to writing up some of the knitting patterns I’ve been collecting. See, while I’ve been busy with my Ph.D I have still been designing, I just haven’t…

Photos, Editing, editing and more editing. Ugh. Also knitting

Do you like the new photo of leaves at the top of the front page? I do. I took it a few weeks ago of a lipstick maple with a macro lens. I don’t do this often enough and I love how it came out. All I did to the image was to crop it. No filter, no tampering of any sort. My favourite kind of photography. I’m back into uni work/editing mode and I’m editing two different books at…

Knitting plans 2014

While I’m procrastinating about editing I thought you would all love to know what I’m going to knit this year. Of course you want to know. (BTW, I am actually editing, it’s just very tedious and really boring and the only thing keeping me sane is my cat and a cold milo). I want to get a few cardigans knitted for winter before winter so I can actually wear them. I would love to knit Wyeth in bright orange, Thyone…

Knitting Stats 2013

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but got sidetracked with knitting, reading and doing nothing while I have had the chance. But that’s over and I have to get back to PhD work, even though I’d really love to take another week off. I can’t. My PhD is due this year and that means getting back into editing, so I’m catching up with stuff. Including this blog, which I’ve sadly neglected over the last year while I’ve…

Release Day! Bloodwood Cowl

Okay, so I’ve been MIA for a while and my apologies. I’ve been caught up with my Ph.D but I have fantastic news that I’ve been sitting on for a while, and now I can finally tell you. I’ve had a design published! It’s my first publication and I am ridiculously excited by this. Thank you SweetGeorgia for publishing me! World meet Bloodwood Cowl:     The Bloodwood Cowl is a two skein fingering weight reversible and unisex cowl featuring…

Knitting Wants

There are always designs, both of my own dreaming and others, that I want to knit *now*. I have a few cardigans in my Ravelry queue, recently finishing knitting Acer Cardigan by Amy Christoffers and I’m planning on casting on another one of hers, Stonecutters Cardigan, soon. Well, as soon as I finish the scarf that’s OTN. In the meantime, I thought I’d show you some of the designs I want to knit. There’s Thyone by Tori Gurbisz. I actually…

I didn’t meant to leave it this long between posts, really I didn’t. I’ve been caught up with my PhD and knitting. While I meant to post, I always remembered while I was in the middle of something else, or when it was really late at night when I was half asleep. So, what have I been up to? I’ve done a lot of knitting.     And a stack of other knits that I don’t have photos of because,…

Hello everyone!

Wasn’t it January just a few minutes ago? I have been meaning to blog for weeks about movies, knitting, what I’m reading, but it seems January has slipped away from me without me blogging at all. I’ve been knitting more than I should, working on a test knit for the wonderful Andrea Black, aka Lacuna on Ravelry. I haven’t been reading nearly enough. I have been watching far too many trashy movies, but enjoying watching old classics from many years…

General Update and where I’ve been, or haven’t been for the past week

My apologies for the lack of posting. I meant to, but I’ve been unwell. Again. I’m not going to go into what it was that has kept me not being constructive for the last week, mainly because I don’t want to dwell on what I had for the third time this year. Instead, I’m trying to finish this chapter of my dissertation before my brain gives up on anything academic for the year, which it is liable to do considering…

Knitting Update

I’ve been meaning to post about what’s been going on in my life for the last few days, but haven’t. I don’t have any real excuse for it, apart from the cold I’ve been battling for the last week. It’s spring here and I have a cold. I’ve managed to successfully avoid them all winter, but as soon as spring arrives and we get a bit of a cold spell, I get a cold. A really snotty cold. One that…
