I have decided that I am going to start blogging again. I am pretty sure no one actually reads this but I thought I would do it anyway. I have really let things slide mainly because of Facebook, Twitter and of course Ravelry. It is so much easier to post pics and comments on these social network sites than coming and writing a piece here. But I also love reading other blogs so I thought if everyone stopped writing them there would be nothing to read so I decided to revive mine.lol
It is so long I have a load of finished projects which I may post just as photos but won't go into too much detail about.
My big passion these days as well as the knitting!! is listening to knitting podcasts I am so addicted I think the main reason is as I know hardly any,although that has changed slightly lately, (more info on that in a minute) knitters in the real world so for me listening to other people talking about knitting for hours on end is just bliss.lol
I have so many favourites I can't even begin to list them all here, but If anybody listens to The High Fibre Diet then I have to say that in her latest episode when she talks about pot luck which is where she takes projects she likes from her group page and talks about them she actually picked on of mine!!! I was so made up, I actually jumped out of my chair, hubby wondered what on earth had happened.lol
I have recently started going to a knitting group with two lovely ladies Emma and Stacey, there is also a fourth member Pamela but she is not there as often, at the moment as there is only 4 of us we hold our meetings at Stacey's house on Mondays at 10.30am it has been so nice to talk to other knitters:-)
Oher news I have started crochet lessons at a local Adult learing College, only had 2 so far but it is going pretty good I have learned 3 stiches and can now hold the hook although it still doesn't feel totally comfortable yet. There is a nice bunch of ladies there and it is an enjoyable 2 hours each week. I have also signed up for a one off session on how to use your sewing machine in July which should also be good.
On the kids front things have been up and down, Joe is 16 and is a complete pain, but I don't have the energy to go into all the details about that now. All the rest are good and the grandkids are growing faster every day.
