Trick and treat?

There's something amazing about pumpkins: great soup and pies and rather inspiring to craft workers ...

Whether traditional or some of the more amazing carvings, some of which are quite gross ... but anyway, the other thing is that they remind me of the shape of the traditional tea cosy!  There are plenty of pumpkin tea cosy patterns out there, but the traditional ridged design keeps the tea much hotter than just a rib version.

So I looked around for some free designs and found two excellent examples, at http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-knit-a-quotproperquot-English-tea-cosy/ and also http://teabythesea.blogspot.co.uk/2008/04/grannies-traditional-tea-cozy.html

Another life?

What is she up to now?  Does she have a life?

Aha! Yes!  Here are a few snippets from my life … that is to say, my life not in wool and yarns!

A major change ...

In the last month I have metamorphosed from a big silver truck lady to a little white van lady.
