This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

I wrote this piece a few years back and Nancy Bowen illustrated it for me. See more of her work here:
First twist the wool, form loop and grip, Then take the hook and gently slip It through the hole and wrap the thread Around the hook close to the head. Now smoothly pull both hook and strand Back through; you have a stitch in hand.
Repeating hook and wind and pull Until you have the pattern full Completed there and now you see How simple makes complexity And one long string by twisted feat Has now become a woollen sheet
Well, a third of one anyway. Only 66 more rows to go (about 20 hours more work).
