A lot of you will remember that I started knitting a jumper for RiverSystem back in April 2017. Then I pulled it out in July 2017 and started again with bigger needles.
On Tuesday, I went to St Fagans to research what was originally going to be an article I was going to offer a magazine on the history of knitting and the fibre arts in Wales. The problem is that I was really inspired by what I saw!
As a first impression, I thought the yarn was so beautiful and really well packaged. I thought I took a photo of the package when it came but I can’t find it now. I got RiverSystem to take a video of me winding the yarn which I’ve uploaded to YouTube for you to see.
The last month or so has been quite busy. We’ve been organising our living room and I’ve been organising my yarn stash. I’m cataloguing it all so I know what I have so I can plan my projects better.
OK OK! I really should have done a podcast before now! You will understand how ill I’ve been. I’ve also been really stressed with everything over the last few months. Getting up in the morning and putting one foot in front of the other has been really difficult enough without thinking about anything else. Now I’m settled and I’m thinking more about other things, I feel like I’m ready to move on and start podcasting again! So what have I been up to?!?!?
If you’ve never been to The Tunnels before, I would recommend it as a really cool place to go! It’s difficult to find the first time, but once you know where it is then you won’t forget again! Basically it’s two former train storage tunnels underneath Temple Meads Train Station. Think Thomas the Tank’s storage shed and you’ll kind of get the idea! Or maybe that episode where Gordon decided he didn’t want to go out in the rain and got bricked up in the tunnel! Anyway, it’s really cosy and intimate and you feel like you can get up close with the performers! We were sat in the front row though…
It wasn’t until RiverSystem told me he’d handed the keys back that I realised how much the stress of the last few months has had on me mentally and physically. As soon as the keys went back, it felt like a cloud lifted from my brain and I could think clearly for the first time in months and months. Since my bad fall in September really! I haven’t even wanted to knit or crochet or anything.
