A Little "Bit" of Luck
The DIY bug of summer finally got me. This was one of the jobs. The wooden deck area at the rear of the cottage had got a bit "tired" looking with Isla skidding and braking on it. The NZ sun fades stuff quickly too. It was time for the Annual Painting of Th...

Ms Steek of Steeking
Knitted in-the-round with sleeves being worked.   Steeks I love steeks. I love the thinking behind this construction method. I love that steeking is SO sensible, SO easy and SO much better for maintaining a rhythm in the stitching. I love the fact that my A...
