Frog Baby

I forgot to say something in my last post. My second ever blog post talked about how I bought a couple of jumpers from the op shop to unravel (frog) for cheap yarn. Well, I’ve completed two projects made from some of that yarn. The first one was this baby jumpsuit: I based it largely…

Hiatus

Hiatus. That sure is a funny word. After I wrote that last blog post I realsied I wouldn’t have time to write any more for a long time because I had to write a thesis for that pesky degree that I’m doing. Now that that’s done (and I’m pretty hopeful about getting a good result)…

I’ve Finally Done it

I’ve finally done it, I’ve started a blog.  I tend to think of blogs as either for the self-absorbed or for people with something interesting to talk about (or perhaps both).  I’ve convinced myself that I do have something interesting to talk about: KNITTING.  My name is Kat and I’m a craft addict.  Seriously, it’s…
