Christmas Cake and a Cozy Hat – another finished WIP.

I went for a hike last week, and the weather had turned “California Cold”. I didn’t even own any gloves. Let alone a hat. For the most part of the hike, I didn’t even need my coat. Hiking uphill will do that to you. But once we got to the top? Man it was chilly! […]

Sharky Wristwarmers – an actual finished WIP!

When our friends first booked to come to visit in February, we were still working together, and the one request Colin had was that we go see some sort of sports game. He didn’t really mind what, but not “Soccer” (I am afraid I will still call it football FOREVER), so we looked up the […]

Sundried Tomato and Oregano Bread

Progress! We have our Social Security Numbers now, so I can get all my paperwork submitted! Wooo! The end to my unemployment may be in sight! When I say in sight, of course I mean in about 3 months time when it all goes through, but still….. Progress! We also have been busy checking out […]

Knitted Breast.

I love my family. We’re arranging a little family get together in a couple of months time, partially for my 30th birthday (eep!), and partially because we really like each other and don’t see each other enough! My cousin’s wife rang me about it the other day…..Only in my family would the conversation then go […]

Mr T(ea Loving Rex), the Gentleman Dinosaur.

I was really really super duper excited about this post, but alas, I had to contain it, as it was a birthday present for my friend and I couldn’t post it until I had given it to her, just in case she saw it and it ruined the surprise! However, today we lunched and had […]

How 2012 was for me.

A year ago today I published my first blog post. Just a simple little Hello. 1 year later, and I this is my 189th post. 45 of them included chocolate. At least 80% of them were probably fueled by chocolate. Or Chocolate Microwave Brownies…. Some major events have happened this year, for us Brits in […]

A Moose for Moose.

Once again, one of our members of staff is leaving us. It is a particularly sad time, because it’s another one in a long line of people who have left meaning people are thin on the ground and stressed out, and because of her positivity, joyfulness, and general all-round fabulosity. Her nickname is Moose. Because […]

A Knitted Plesiosaur

This is another project from Tina Barrett’s Knitted Dinosaurs book. After making the Pterodactyl, I wanted to make all of them, so am slowly making my way through the book, making them for each of my friends and familys children! (I so want one of each for myself, but I can’t really justify it!) The […]


My friend bought this book, Knitted Dinosaurs by Tina Barrett. And well… they were all just so darn cute! Not really scary at all. I needed it in my life. But I guess knitting a dinosaur for myself was kind of silly. I need children to justify these things. But I do have totally adorable […]

Happy Birthday Mouse!

It’s been a while, but I decided to return to my Knitted Mouse. It is the birthday of little lady in question this week, so I thought I would make a new outfit. Pattern wise, I used the standard pattern from the Ultimate Book of Baby Knits as before, but worked it in mainly in […]
