Life and TV Knitting Update

  • Recently I have been reflecting on the blog and the writing style I use for it. It does sound like me, yes… a formal, too many thoughts me. I’m wondering whether I should attempt to adapt it or not. Big question.
  • Another thing. I still need to finish the blog logo. Just assume it will never happen and I may perhaps surprise you all one day!

Every now and again I am reminded that this blog started off fairly knit-heavy which it now isn’t, having been buried under things like skincare and too many thoughts. I’m a little ashamed to admit that I just don’t knit as much as I used to, but the important thing is that I still do. Compared to my A-Level studies and UCAS applications and stuff, my hobbies are really low priority. Blogging has, by far, been the easiest one to keep up with which is why I still post fairly frequently.

Progress is slow and steady on the  #GBBO2015 cowl, which is, as of now, still lacking a proper inspired name (ideas include naming it after contestant Nadiya who is my favourite to win, or something chocolatey)  The rounds are long and the pattern is interesting, but slow to knit. We are past the halfway mark of the series but I haven’t finished the first skein yet!

You can see both the right side and wrong side in the photo.

Luckily, Doctor Who has returned to our screens which means more TV knitting (Maisie Williams is guest starring this season!! Squeal!) Hopefully this means I can catch up a bit. Despite constantly suffering from Tenth Doctor withdrawal symptoms I still watch the show loyally. I think Peter Capaldi as Twelve is great, but at the same time I feel he hasn’t really found his feet with the character and is just as spontaneous and ‘everywhere’ as Eleven. Maybe it’s just Steven Moffat’s writing (which was better than usual for this season’s opening episode – I hope this is kept up all season!!).

(Another reason why I haven’t knit a lot is that knitting has been more a luxury for me recently due to life problems so I feel kinda guilty when I do, especially when I could be studying for my resits. Sigh.)

Until next time,
