Crazy colours and the everyday


How are you?

A few people have now asked why the blog's been so quiet lately, so I thought I'd pop in and let you know I'm fine and well. I'm just busy with things that aren't that interesting to read or write about. I have a new part-time job I'm learning the ropes for and my playwriting is in a phase where I'm just trying to reach a first draft. And then we'll see if it goes beyond that or not. (Oh the mystery of theatre.)

The most exciting thing I can show you (which for most of you isn't exciting at all) is a very colourful, double sided pot holder I finished the other day. As many of you know, I get a little bit yarn-crazed this time of year. What I actually wanted to make was a blanket that's also a mermaid's fin, but my yarn budget doesn't really stretch to that so I worked with some left over yarns instead. I originally bought these to make crazy socks for a friend. Like I mentioned before, the knit has two layers to avoid nasty burns and to give the slightly colour-shy users a less "in your face" option as well.
Not my best work, but it was fun. And I now have some free space in my yarn bag. 
That's it for now! I will return, I promise, I'm just struggling to know what might interest you and the internet. Call it a blog-crisis if you like. But considering all the other crisis one can have, it's pretty lightweight ...

Have a great week!
