Be bold, be brave. On 13 June 2015, show the world your post-apocalyptic life skills – or just your knitting and crochet! This is the 10th anniversary of an event that brings knitters from around the globe together.

Now THAT is a tight knit community! 🙂

There are two weeks to get ready and feel free to share pictures of you or your group here or on the Facebook page: PSPRP On FB.

Cheers all, have a lovely weekend!


The Breakup Had To Come…

Who doesn’t love Rowan?

What’s not to love? Other than like a bad boyfriend, they steal your heart and disappear so quickly, leaving you wanting more!

I’m breaking up with my Rowan Calmer stash… I’ve had it with the good looks but lazing about in the guest room. Never a “Let me knit myself up for you Dear”.

I’ve listed four lots and they are available at my Etsy shop, my Facebook shop and on Ravelry.


Calmer is a machine washable soft handle cotton blended yarn perfect for baby and children’s knits. The polyester adds a little give and shape retention to the finished garment.

This yarn has been discontinued.

Season: Spring Summer
Yarn Ball Weight: 50g
Yarn Meterage/Yardage: 160/175

I’d love if someone could take these bad boys off my hands… though I can’t say that’ll stop me loving the Bad Boys ;-)!

All Of The Posts!

How to adequately post, cross-post and promote without driving followers crazy?

I personally don’t mind seeing the same or similar posts across social media from the people I follow or am friends with – if it’s relevant and good content. IE: not what you’ve had for lunch showing up in my feeds six times!

I’ll be experimenting a little with the various ways to get the word out and for those of you who follow me in more than one spot (thank you! 🙂 ), I hope you’ll bear with the repetition.

Testing out reposts from the new Facebook page today:

Make It MondayI hope all the Mum’s that follow here had a lovely Mother’s Day yesterday! t’s dull and rainy day where…

Keeping You In Stitches Saturday


Y’all know I love a good pun or double entendre… it’s the writing thing :p

So. This is one of my favourite actors, favourite movies and dare I say…? Favourite yarns, though as of this posting, I’ve only squeezed, sniffed and… well, I may have fondled a little too. If I’m being totally honest.

I HAD to see what the hype’s about, yarn diet or no and so; under the guise of test knitting, I ordered this Mrs. Crosby’s Hat Box and Carpet Bag in – wait for it – Wild Huckleberry!

Mrs. Crosby Hat Box and Carpet Bag ❤

I LOVE it and can’t wait to finish up “Carnelian” so that I can get my hands all over “Amethyst”. Once test knits are complete, the tech editing math-fest of doom will begin with an eye to have all versions of “Matinée” published next week.

And once again, I invite you to like & follow my new Facebook page and / or just me on Facebook. I’d love the support 🙂
