Happy 2017!
How quickly time flies - it seems like only a few weeks ago that I was preparing my "Welcome 2016" flatlay and pondering over my goals and aspirations for the coming year. 12 months later, so much has happened! So, what happened to my 2016 resolutions? Knit...

What up my knittaz: a big thankyou to the fibre community
This week marks two years since I hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu - four days of walking through humid jungle, dusty sand, and huge slippery rocks. As a lazy couch potato with a rather large and wobbly bottom, it was no easy feat, and I've never felt s...

The Spindles and Stitches shop opens March 21st!
There are rolags (long rolags from a blending board, and lovely fluffy chunky ones off the carders), plenty of hand dyed top, some pencil roving, handpulled roving, and super soft and squishy blended tops. Some colourways are OOAK, but some are so wonderful...

FOs, WIPs, and other letters just like these
Normally, I've been a "finish one thing, before you start another" when it comes to knitting. I'd seen people with ten, twenty projects on their needles and I had two thoughts: a) how will you remember which is which? and b) how is it possible to have that ...

The girls were back in town, or: PUPPY OH MY GOD A PUPPY
For a brief but wonderful while, Emma and Querube came back to Barcelona. Life fitted right back to its usual ways - with coffee and cake and stories of the last few months, accompanied by wandering around the city and discovering nooks and corners that we'...

Weekend getaway, or: hopping on the train to go see a pig
January is a busy month at work, so lately my life seems like: get up early, go to work, come home, eat, sleep, repeat. On top of that, we've reorganised the flat a little, and I'm trying to sort out various shelves and cupboards to make them clean and tidy...

Happy new year! (And happy blog-iversary!)
A big adéu to 2015, and a big bon dia to 2016 :) I hope you all had a wonderful year, and a great New Year's Eve - we went to see the fireworks at Plaça Espanya (amazing!) and I've spent the morning crocheting a baby hat and photographing some hand carded r...

Didn't this year go quickly? Last time I checked, I was moving into a new flat and it was barely August. Now, four months have flown by and we find ourselves on the 31st once again. I've had some amazing things happen this year, both big and small: cuddles ...

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
We had the loveliest Christmas this year - exploring, sightseeing, eating more than I thought ever possible, and lazing about with family and friends after being away from London for a whole year. It was R's first time in London, so we spent some time explo...

The shirt that broke the camel's back, or: why a mess is maybe helpful...?
So, being the wonderful person I am, I bent down on Saturday night to pick up my t-shirt that had fallen on the floor. Aaaaaand... I couldn't get back up. The mister's been very helpful - he's been running to the pharmacy for heat packs, passing me everythi...
