Hello again

It feels like I've fallen off the planet - a whole month with no blogging updates. I do apologise.. It's them pesky kids. They just create this time black hole......

Having said that, the two big ones are back in school and I only have one little one to distract me. And the little one turned 2 in August and she's just started nursery (preschool) for 2 mornings a week. That means I have 3 hours of mummy time, 2 mornings a week. Hallelujah!!! Have a glass of champagne on me, wherever you are.

On the knitting front, I've been working on Blithe, from Kim Hargreaves book, Breeze. I have nearly finished the front. It's a summer tank. The weather is definitely autumnal in London, so much so that I'm contemplating turning on the heating. I guess, I won't be using this much until next spring. Oh well.

On the beaded crochet jewellery front, look at what I made for a friend's birthday. I crocheted the necklace with 2 different beads, so that it spiralled. Then, I found the focal beads which worked so well with the necklace. What do you think??

Hi Ling!

Did you have a nice time at the I-Knit Weekender? So gutted that I couldn't make it.

The beaded crochet necklace is lovely!
