Romi Hill Return


For the last four years, Romi Hill has released pattern subscriptions, made up of seven pattern and some bonuses, released as she finishes them over the year. The first two years I participated. I knit a few of the shawls and loved the patterns. Even those I didn't knit were a ton of fun to dream about.. Last year I took a break from them, as I've got loads of patterns for shawls. But she has a very active group on Ravelry and I always check in with them to find out what's going on. And what's going on in the fourth collection of shawls - called Friends. I still wasn't going to subscribe, but then I found out the first shawl is actually a ten ply cowl. I've been wanting an awesome cowl, and this one is beautiful. So I'm playing along. I'm not committing to making all the shawls, but I do notice that I don't have any shawls at all in my queue, so clearly I need these patterns!
I don't have any suitable yarn in the stash, so I'm going to try to buy some on my upcoming holiday to New Zealand.

  1. I have a confession to make. After reading your blog, i too have signed up for Romi's y4… and I also purchased y3, because the designs are so awesome. This is my kind of club, using yarn I already have!!

Look what I found!!

I was putting away the yarn from my mothers ASJ, which I have finished - it's having a bath right now, and I found this blue yarn:

Now, I'm pretty sure that the yarn I left at book club a month ago was Patonyle in navy, and that's what this is too! Either way, it is an exact match:

That's the old yarn and the one I just found, together, and they are the exact same colour!

There is only 13 grams, so I don't know if it will be enough to finish both sleeves, and the  iCord front, but if it is I won't have to wait another month to declare this project done!


Moving on UP

So, last week Leon and I bought a house! Well, actually a perfectly sized flat. The thing about our perfectly sized flat is that it’s a bit smaller than our current rather home – where we live now is a giant flat built in the 1960s. We’ve got loads of space, a  dining room,  a garage and a storage room. Unfortunately, not too much maintenance has been done on the place in the last three decades. The place we’ve bought is lovely – 15 years old, with a new kitchen, views to forever and nothing is falling apart. But it’s got a carspot, and room for a dining table in the living room. So, I’ve had a look at my stuff and I’m getting rid of things like a crazy lady! Also, it turns out I’d rather get rid of everything than move it. I'm destashing as if we are moving into the carspot, rather than the flat! All our CDs –GONE. All the DVDs –given away, books - bye bye...

It’s been really interesting, especially in relation to my crafting things. I’ve got quite a lot of spinning fibre, and I’m…

Yarnalong - the one with the end of a chapter

Last week Ginny announced that, after 6 years, she was finishing the yarnalong. . I’ve been participating since  December 2013 ; over three years. It’s bittersweet – doing the Yarnalong has given me a good structure to my blogging and I’ve loved reading about what Ginny, and all the other members of the yarnalong get up to every week. But this is a time of change for me – some very exciting things have happened, which I can’t share here quite yet. It’s a time for letting go, and for new beginnings. So I leave you with one last photo of my kindle and my knitting, and I say “thank you” to Ginny, and everyone else who have brightened my Wednesdays for the last 6 years.
