Jan Eaton's Book Errata I've listed the known corrections for my crochet and knitting books here - titles include UK and US versions of 200 Crochet Blocks, 200 Knitted Blocks and 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns.
My trusty Pure DAB radio finally gave up the ghost last week. I bought the radio in 2002 and it's been on for at least 12 hours every day so I don't feel too bad about having to buy a replacement. I'm a non-TV household and sound quality as well as looks are important. The one I chose is tiny but it has a lovely big sound.
There has been a lot of coughing/sneezing over the past week or so; I'm feeling much better now so here's a quick round-up of what's been going on here.
The amaryllis flowers are now over, but were lovely while they lasted.
A new LYS has opened in the city - YAK Yarn and Knitting at 16, Gloucester Road, Brighton, BN1 4AD. Opening times: Tue - Sat 10am - 6pm, Sun 11am - 4pm. I managed a quick visit before the cold germs struck. YAK's official Grand Opening is this Saturday, February 7th, 2pm - 6pm.
The 2014 Advent Calender Scarf is coming along nicely; I have four more patterns left to knit. The impossible-to-photograph yarn colour's darker/richer/nicer in real life.
It's that amaryllis time of year again; this bulb was a Christmas present from Julie. Two buds have appeared so far - more photos when the flowers arrive.
I'm finally getting my teeth into a Ravelry KAL (knit-a-long for those of you who haven't come across the term KAL before). It's the 2014 Advent Calender Scarf (Rav link) and you got one clue/chart every day during Advent. What with one thing and another, I didn't start knitting until January. The photo shows days 4, 5, 6 and 7; the scarf is knitted in Wollmeise Lace-Garn, colourway Flaschenpost.
