In print


A while back, I was contacted by Let's Knit magazine to see if I would write a few words on knitting socks using a circular needle. They have started doing a page on common knitting problems and this month it was all about socks. I can still remember how scared I was knitting my first pair, and how the pattern seemed to make no sense at all! Now, more than 100 pairs later, I can pretty much knit them with my eyes shut! I was really proud to have been asked to contribute, even more so when I saw that another of the contributors was the amazing sock knitter Winwick Mum! 





I also wrote this month's Crochet 101 column in Crochet Now magazine - all about dealing with those pesky ends! I know only too well how easily ends can become 'an issue'! 






Thank you so much to everyone who has left a comment wishing me well with my health. I ended up in the acute medical unit at our local hospital for a day this week, so have managed to queue jump quite nicely as my appointment wasn't until mid-September. Really pleased that investigations have started so hopefully I will soon know what's going on and the best way to recover. In the meantime, I'm resting and spending my days knitting and crocheting. Can't be bad! xxx

Well done, I can’t imagine what you’ll be up to once you are firing in all cylinders again, which I hope will be very soon.
