I honestly meant to update well before now, but while my intentions were good…my followup was crap. The knitting content has been almost non-existent on the blog for a while, so I will offer up an apology for anyone looking for knitting and finding everything else. My knitting has had a tendency to go in […]

Last but not least, my parents’ tree! Mum always threatens to do a theme tree, but I love the familiar jumbled look of the ornaments. Many of the ornaments are new, but that’s because Mum has handed many of the family ornaments to my brother and I (at least, I think my brother has the […]

Happy boxing day! I’m carrying the merriment forward a day or two, seeing as there were at least four or five trees in my Yule, I present the first of my two Christmas Day trees. This is the tree in my in-laws’ house. Robin’s parents’ main floor has wonderfully high ceilings, so I needed to […]

Today’s tree is courtesy Robin’s brother and his lovely significant other, who hosted our Christmas Eve festivities. It was a definite non-traditional fare this year, with the main dish being home-cooked Ribs. And as an added bonus: Robin with a baby! This is our newest niece, Darby. She’s almost 2 months old. She’s already holding […]

Basically, we’re spending Christmas anywhere but home due to the Family Migratory Pattern of events. So for the next couple […]

I’m one of those knitters who knits for her family. I tend to be pretty humble about my talents, but having had a role model like my Granny Martin (who knit for her husband, daughter, son, their spouses and their children), it’s natural that I would knit for the people I care about. It started […]

Once upon a time (1984) there was this guy.  We’ll call him Bob.  Bob saw that there was this famine happening in Ethiopia and wanted to do something about it. He was in a band, so he wrote a song, invited a bunch of friends to sing it along with him (they called themselves “Band-Aid”), […]

I’m not going to say that I have all my Christmas knitting done, because the moment I say that is the moment that someone in the family tells me five different things that they want me to knit that would make them the happiest person on the face of the earth. That said, I’ve done […]
