I’m Back! (Again)

Hi, everyone! I know that it’s been a really long time again and I’m sorry. The cause of my being so tired all of the time was finally discovered – and it turned out that a Vitamin D deficiency was to blame. In fact, my levels were so low that […]


KnitPro Zing Interchangeable Needles

A while ago, I wrote a review covering the KnitPro Zing range as it was at the time. Since then, KnitPro have also added interchangeable tips to the range, so it’s time update my original post and give them a review! As with other needles in the range, the Zing […]

Reader’s Digest Manual of Handicrafts – Retro Book

As I mentioned last week, I was lucky enough to stumble upon an old book in one of my local charity shops. This book was the Reader’s Digest Manual of Handicrafts. I’m a sucker for these big old books, with the charming illustrations and lovely paper stock, so I had […]
