Katesgrove and Reading Bricks
Katesgrove and Reading Bricks

I have learned from my copy of “Waterloo Sunrise” that the district in which I live is called Katesgrove, and that this area of Reading once housed three kilns from whence the many bricks required to build the town’s Victorian terraced houses came. Our search for the redbrick history of Reading begins at Katesgrove Lane, […]

Biscuitopolis & The Mad March Hare...

A couple of Sundays back, the Sticks’n’String knitters plus some Bluestockings came over for a yarn-swap and a tasty feast. The rules were simply that everyone should bring some kind of local fare for the table plus some yarn to swap. Everyone bought amazing things to eat – pies, sausages, cheeses, cakes, chutneys etc. – […]

Harefields
Harefields

When I visited Aunty Hilary in Hospital, I took some knitting with me. What I took was this hat – Harefields – which I was making for Mark. It is his annual Christmas-present hat, and it was completed for just after Christmas as is now seemingly an annual tradition round here. The hat is knit […]

Around the A4074: 6pm Boxing Day, BBC Oxford

Some of you may be interested to learn that the radio show I dreamt up back in October 2009 will air on Boxing Day at 6pm on BBC Oxford. In Around the A4074 I explore how the everyday context of the commute may be considered differently. There are interviews with Joe Moran – writer of […]

The wind that shakes the barley
The wind that shakes the barley

The first things I did after moving in with Mark and redecorating our bedroom involved 1. creating a sock-knitting area in the bottom of my wardrobe and 2. curating a shelf-load of books on my side of the bed themed around adventures and journeys. I organised my books and my sock-knitting books/yarns etc. in tandem […]

Knitted seas.
Knitted seas.

A long time ago I wrote this post which touched on the idea of connecting places and seasons to specific yarn colourways. I compared some of the fabled WOLLMEISE to the distinctive steely blues and ragged yellow leaves spotted around Weymouth and Portland late that Autumn. Weymouth, October 2007 Much has happened since I coveted […]
