It’s the job that is never started

It’s the job that is never started that takes the longest to finish.

Thank you J.R.R. Tolkien.

I never stop knitting and playing with colour and yarn in my mind, but over recent months I have not really managed to actually knit, well not very much.

But the process is happening again – I have decided that I must set up a room properly and call it my studio (2nd bedroom).

Step 2 is to finish my unfinished WIP.

But that will depend on just what else could be started in the meantime especially when I will be reminded of my yarn as I move it from my smallest bedroom into my studio.

And just to let you know that I am finishing a lovely black kid mohair with variegated 4ply yarn in pinks to purple and black. It is only the final cast off and a few ends to weave in. It is also a version of my Connie Cowl design, but with an added frilly bottom edge.

And I am doing this while listening to Leonard Cohen.

I am so grateful that I saw him in New Zealand in 2013 and delighted to have his music to knit and remember him by.

My Maastricht Day

by on Feb.11, 2011, under Blog

Best Beloved worked all day as he does when he is in Maastricht. Me, I wandered about and took about 150 photos. These are only some. They are here because they are quirky, interesting shapes, or just something you may not expect. Hope you enjoy them. I didn’t really think you would really like 50 photos of stone walls.

I did buy one 100gm ball of Regia lace, and I did buy grandson in New Zealand a couple of pairs of jeans. He has a birthday in June. I know that as a to be 8 year old – he won’t be that excited by jeans so I will add something fun like star wars or lego or something. The jeans look cool to me, his mormor.

Cloaks, Capes, Shawls and Ponchos

by on Oct.18, 2010, under Cloaks, Capes, Shawls and Ponchos

I have a real passion for the cloak and cape. They are elegant garments and can be dressy, sexy or plain comfortable. If they are created with a flowing shape they will move well with the wearer and can be created with a yarn or fabric that suits the personal style of the wearer.

Here in winter of 2010 there is still a fashion trend for the cape, and this gallery contains some of the capes and other creative coverings that I have created.
