Redesigning

Hello, my Fine Fibrous Friends. Perhaps that should include my Fine Furry Friends, too:- Lately I’ve been working on a design for a Stylecraft Blogstars promotion that’ll hit a yarn shop or a screen and perhaps even some knitting needles near you this summer. The knitted version is nearly done, and if possible, I’ll create […] The post Redesigning first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Up A Tree

They’ve arrived. Reader, trouble has entered the chat here at Twisted Towers. Meet Jack and Hunter, named by the twinnage and estimated by their foster carer to be 14 weeks old on adoption day. (They were abandoned in a cardboard box in a lay-by, so nobody knows their exact age.) There’s a big shortage of […] The post Up A Tree first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Fifty

Good news! We passed the home inspection. That means we’re allowed to adopt the kittens. The twinnage had so, so, set their hearts on these furry monsters that I was terrified of breaking their young hearts by failing. We’ve had so many false starts because there’s a shortage of cats available for adoption, at least […] The post Fifty first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Kittens

2M ago
November doesn’t have much to commend it, here in the UK. It’s cold, it’s grey, it’s aggressively dark far too soon after lunch, and it’s very, very, soggy. Our wonky old brewery home is reliably cold and damp. Sometimes the Stoic Spouse suggests we put the heating on or light a log fire as he […] The post Kittens first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Thank you, my Fine Fibrous Friends, for your kind words after my last post. I’m doing OK, but part of the boob surgery wound just won’t heal, which is irritating ten weeks down the line because it’s preventing me from running. Given that my physical and mental health and menopause-resilience are closely correlated with running […] The post Bisocial first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Chopped

Hello, my Fine Fibrous Friends. As so often happens on this page, the story told by the words will likely weave in and out of the story told by the pictures, because different bits of life are best told via different media. At long last, it’s done. After several postponements I’ve had the surgery to […] The post Chopped first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

A ‘Proper’ Holiday

My operation* has been postponed again. Of course I’m disappointed, but I’m a patient patient, so it’ll be OK. This was going to be a post about knitting. But then my brain went galloping off on a tangent, so here we are. Photos show the actual experience we had, whereas the words are about My […] The post A ‘Proper’ Holiday first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Hello again, my Fine Fibrous Friends. Speaking of fibrous, it’s been a blissfully yarny time of late. For the first time since covid trampled on everyone’s plans with all the malevolent energy of an overtired toddler, we’ve had a proper face-to-face meet-up of the Stylecraft Blogstars. Stylecraft did their utmost to keep things Zooming along […] The post Craft With Style(craft) first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

Pride Comes Before A Fall: Here’s The Pride.

Hello, my Fine Fibrous Friends. First, may I apologize for accidentally giving the false impression last post that I was injured or ill. The knitting-in-bed-with-a-view photo was purely to show off the self-indulgent bliss of our brief jaunt to the Brecon Beacons. And the throwaway comment about the universe’s capacity for dumping excrement on one’s […] The post Pride Comes Before A Fall: Here’s The Pride. first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more

The Wrong Ystradowen

We all make mistakes, right? Errors such as thinking, “I can finish knitting this jumper before my friend’s birthday.” Or deciding that of course you’ll remember what size hook you were using to crochet that half-done afghan. The Stoic Spouse has a foolproof method for avoiding knitting and crochet mistakes… which is to never once […] The post The Wrong Ystradowen first appeared on the twisted yarn ..read more
