Once upon a sock in December – rainbows and retrospectives

Late again, but posting this month! It has been another tough week for my family, and the introduction of being back at work most of the time has meant knitting has taken a little dip, but I do have a bit of progress and a little retrospective to share with you. (Also, watch this space…

Knitting for comfort

I have written the intro to this post in my head half a dozen times, and none of those versions have been quite right. So. The reason I have been quiet on here for the last month is due to various complicated and difficult family health circumstances, of which the most abrupt and shocking was…
