Slooooow....!

It's been a slow few months... battling with menopausal symptoms, I haven't slept properly since November, I can't seem to think straight and my body thermostat wants to play games with me!!! Grrr!! Anyway, I'm soldiering on..

To keep me from going completely mad, I've been revisiting past patterns that I felt could be improved upon. Friday Street Shawl has just recently had a relaunch. I love this pattern and I've always wanted to explore the idea of having extra colours on it - and now I have! Check out the recent test knits too, they're fab! ❤

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see that I don't only knit, but I also play tennis! I started playing regularly when I was 40, but it was a steep learning curve. Things like: hand/eye coordination, muscle reflex and ball trajectory skills were not in my original training as a track and field athlete. Simply keeping the ball in court is quite an achievement, y'know!

Tennis!

...and then there's the weather conditions to contend with!

Can you be-weave it?!?

Since the Scandinavian weaving workshop last year, I've been dabbling with proper weaving, using a rigid heddle loom. I'm still trying to figure out the terminology and finding useful ways to use weaving fabric, but at least it is helping me to beat down my yarn stash a lot faster than I could if I was just only knitting!
