On the Road Again

Well not exactly on the road, more on Kingsholm Road in Gloucester. Yep, I'm back to the delights of sunny Gloucester, probably for the next few weeks. It's a bit annoying as I am trying to get my house sorted and the garden will have to be dug over soon and I have a bunch of knitting things and spinning things and sewing things to be getting on with. Doesn't work realise that I actually HAVE a LIFE!!!

Anyway I have been remarkably lax with updating on my knitting recently so here is the tally at the moment:
I am in the final stages of getting a pinwheel cardigan finished, it just needs an arm and a half sorting out and then it's done.
I have most of a knitted dinosaur finished but it needs 3 more legs and then sewing and stuffing
There is my attempt to knt a vintage 1940s bra that is coming along very nicely but I have no real idea if it will fit me. So far I have almost a whole cup done.
Then there is the 1940s snood that I finished but kept fogetting to get elastic so that I could finish it properly and now it is probably somewhere in the depths of my bedroom
And finally (I had to get there at some point) I have just started another vintage garment - this time it's a sleeveless pullover that I am attempting to knit in the round but it's not co-operating and I was too tired to fight it. I only started that today so so far all I have is the ribbing and a few rows done but I thikn that i can work out the pattern for the round. The yarn is a fugly brown tweedy thing that has been cluttering up my stash for a while now and this project seems to scream utility wear and what better colour than brown for utility wear?

Oh and forgot about the mountain of hibernating WIPs that I am doing my best to ignore. I keep reasoning that they are either too big, or too close to finishing to bring with me to Gloucester. Yea, I know.


  1. Hi there,

    I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog today, and for leaving such a lovely comment. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit, and I hope you'll come back.

    It was so nice to have someone from OWOH actually spend time reading my blog, instead of just saying they wanted to enter the giveaway! (Although that's OK).

    I enjoyed reading this post about your various knitting projects in the works. Made me think about the 2 prs of socks I have made, but I can't figure out the kitchener stitch to finish up the toes. :-)

    Come back any time,


  2. Thank you for entering my tatting giveaway for OWOH! Good luck to you. Good luck w/ your WIP's! Hope you are able to keep them from turning into UFO's, LOL! :)


Thanks for taking the time to have a little look at my blog - don't be shy, tell me what you think
