How to thank the person who left the anonymous comment about where to get stuffing beads - mine arrived last week!
Why I haven't been able to find time to respond to the comments left on my blog in the last week or so. It's the height of rudeness and I feel deeply ashamed.
How to clean a genuine pashmina without compromising it's ethereal softness. After 4 years, mine is filthy but I'm just too scared to do anything to it!
Why I keep waking at 2am and not being able to get back to sleep.
When the University will get their act together and finish the assessment of my thesis. 4 months and counting.
Why my sourdough leven keeps dying after the first fermentation when I kept my old leven alive for years.
Why I thought the bit that said use the same yarn throughout didn't apply to me. I don't even know why I thought stripes would be better than a solid colour, but I now have some slippers with a nicely felted instep and a completely unfelted heel and a moderately felted toe. Completely useless and very wasteful. And while we're on that how come colour seems to dictate feltability in otherwise identical wool?
Why employers aren't better at taking advantage of the underemployed labour market of people like me who want part time work.
Whether I should keep tying my hair back until the layers are grown out or get it cut again to encourage some curl.
Why I bothered to knit a sample square to calculate how many stitches to use and how much wool I'd need on my new project, only to realise after a ball of knitting that I would have been better off using the stitch guide on the wool band because now it's too wide and I don't have enough wool. But I'm carrying on and I'll do something clever and creative to incorporate a ball of contrasting wool. I hope. And it will still fit. I hope.
And to those who want to know what I'm knitting with the watermelon jet? Just wait and see!
