My friend and Favourite Sample Knitter, known as MrsQueen on rav, has been featured in her own right. She made the Primrose Path Socks by Jane Howorth from issue 22.

Mrs Queen's Primrose Path Socks



What have I signed up for? I’m not good in crowds…


Fireworks display:
Each year the Cassiobury Park fireworks and bonfire night takes place on the Saturday nearest November the fifth.

This years event will take place on Saturday 3rd November 2012.

The free event starts at 6pm, with a children’s Fireworks display at 6:15pm. The bonfire will be lit at 7pm and the main Fireworks will commence at 7:30pm.

Limited parking for blue badge holders will be available in the car park off Gade Avenue (this will not be open to non-blue badge holders). Parking restrictions will be in place on local roads to enable emergency vehicle access to the event.

The 2009 event attracted 40,000 people and raised over £5,000 for local charities.


I am going to add blog posts more frequently in November. I tend to feel that only earth-shattering news should Be Published On The Blog, but then it all gets too up itself and stagnates. 

So today’s news is 1) I got a rejection from KnitNow, but it was such a nice rejection that I can hardly call it such. 2) My lovely tech editor has some great ideas too so I’m going to <quickly> draft some proposals for things for her to show to the big bad knitting world. 3) I have made contact with a renowned designer and I’m looking forward to some mentoring sessions. I’d really like to feel like I’m swimming determinedly to shore rather than just doggy-paddling around looking for the next bit of driftwood to hold onto.

So momentum’s starting to build. Slowly does it! :)
