I’ve been away, but I’ve been busy!

Hi hi hi hi! It seems like such a long time since I’ve posted. I’ve always been too tired to do so, even though I do peruse everyone else’s posts on WordPress to see what people are doing! Well, I got a new teaching job (permanent! woo hoo!) at a lovely new school; I went […]

My Cardigan.

I have finished my cardigan. And I love it. It’s very heavy, but really warm – which is exactly what I need in this ‘spring’ weather (rain). It took a lot more wool, time and thinking than I anticipated, but it worked out well.   Collar up!   Or collar down.   I had to […]

The Cardigan Commenceth

I am making a cardigan from granny squares in the nicest (and most expensive) wool I’ve ever used. It is this:   Here is a square:   Here is the waistcoaty bit (I haven’t done the sleeves yet):   It looks quite clumpy at the moment. It won’t. It’s a WIP!

Finished French Country Style Crochet Throw

I’ve been asked to make a cushion […]

THE quickest crochet scarf in the West (Midlands).

It’s been a funny old couple of days here a Chez Bevington (I’ve never called it that before, just so you you know). My lovely Sam came back from Denmark (where he has been performing – here is my better half) with epic flu. So I haven’t really seen him at all. I spent the […]

Cakes, Bubushka Dolls, Scarves and Blankets

Wow. What a week. I went to my friend’s mehndi ceremony, which was beautiful. I was taken with the amount of colour and sparkly bits on display. I loved the food too. Samosas, spicy chicken, curry, rice – nom! My friend was very emotional but looked beautiful. Today is her wedding. I can’t wait. I […]

It’s almost Spring. I can tell because everyone’s having babies.

Yeah. I can sense it. Come on Spring. You don’t fool me with your minus temperatures. I can take it. I can drink tea to keep warm. I can ride it. You, however, can’t hide from me – I saw the daffodils blooming the other day. There’s also Easter eggs in Tesco. You, sir/lady, have […]
