Something New: The Week in My Phone

16 May 2014

Today’s Knitting and Crochet Blog Week challenge is “to blog in a way different to how you normally blog.” So a wordless post, or a vlog, or something completely new. I thought I’d give you all a little rundown of my week, in photos, and to allow myself no more than 30 minutes in which to complete the post. [I was inspired in part by Franklin‘s ‘miniature entries,’ which get the job done in a short space.]

So, here’s what my iPhone photo files reveal about the week:

Knitting

Silver Screen Knits, Volume Two

One book release: Silver Screen Knits, Volume Two

Susanna Rav Top 20

Two SSK2 patterns in the Ravelry Top Twenty. Both by the amazing Susanna IC!

Culture

One Starling Sighting

One Starling Sighting (at St. Peter’s College, Oxford)

Domestic Manners of the Americans

One book I feel I must read.

Family

Jane NATOA Nixon

One hilarious photo of my mother unearthed just this morning from a PPT presentation

Child who needs haircut

One child who needs a haircut.

Who knows what the weekend will bring?

Plus, hey, copies of Silver Screen Knits, Volume Two are shipping, and ebooks are available on Ravelry! Use code SSK-BLOG for a 10% discount on the book, or sign up for the Silver Screen Knits Behind the Scenes newsletter to get a code for a larger discount, plus exclusive designer interviews and yarn giveaways.

    That’s no starling! It’s a Magpie and it’s unlucky to see just one there’s the rhyme 1 for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl, 4 for a boy, 5 for silver, 6 for gold, 7 for a secret that’s not to be told, 8’s a wish, 9’s a kiss and I can never remember what 10 is!

    If you see one I’ve always saluted him and said “Good Morning Mr Magpie, How’s the wife” which seems to be a Lincolnshire tradition as no one here (in South Wales) seems to do so!
