Ominously quiet in the corner

It’s been very quiet here since November. Usually when the kids are quiet it means they are Up To Something, and usually something dubious.

In my case I’ve been head down, knitting up a storm, so here is a catch up post. Apologies for the number of links.

So far this year I’ve been working on 3 series; Oriental Tales, the Little Book of Fairy Tales, and am just finishing up a series about love – Love is like friendship caught on fire. (I’ll leave it to you to decide if this is love of the interpersonal variety, or for the love of knitting! ūüėČ

The Nimble Knits group has grown, and the community continually blows me away with its warmth and kindness. We now have regular knitalongs (check out the KALendar here for updates if you like to knit with friends.) Currently there is a knitalong of the Leaf Cycle shawls.

I’m excited to say there’s been a lot of leaping of the language barrier, with a number of patterns now available in French thanks to the delightful¬†ladies of ¬†Madlaine Yarns, in German thanks to TinaStrickt, and in Italian thanks to Unfilodi Knit House (who hosted a KAL of the free cowl pattern Whimsycowl in April).

And soon I’ll be doing some leaping of my own as our family of 5 is about to embark on a year of vagabonding. After several years of planning and dreaming, we are finally only days away from setting off to travel around Europe and the UK for 12 months. In a bongo van. Wish us luck! (We may need it..)

I’ll be keeping some sort of record of our journey here, for any who are curious.
