Want to see something that’s both gorgeous and knitting-related?
This isn’t usually a blog about buying-all-the-things, but occasionally my typing finger hovers a little too persistently over the “Add to cart” button. And on this occasion I succumbed to temptation. Sorry-not-sorry. Would you like to see the contents of the little parcel that fearlessly flew the Atlantic and plopped through my letterbox the other day? Loook! (This isn’t a sponsored post – I paid full price, I have no connection with the maker, who as far as I know has no compromising photos with which to blackmail me for publicity.)
How lovely? I’ve been wearing them most days since they arrived.
They were made by Jewelia Designs, and they’re perfectly splendid. Just sayin’.
Anyway (this post is a tad bitty – I hope you don’t mind) do your laser-sharp minds recall the shark-bombed house that I mentioned a few posts ago? Well as luck would have it, it’s up for rent right now. Move your life and your work and your family to Oxford, UK, and all this could be yours! See here. And if you decide to do so, please be kind enough to invite me for dinner because I’d really like to view your shark up close (as well as share your company over dinner, obviously).
But let’s get back to the knitting. Specifically, Simply Knitting magazine, the folks for whom I take a spatula to scrape some of the bonkersness out of the recesses of my brain for a column once a quarter. Well this month ain’t my quarter, BUT the current issue features an article on knit-blogging, with interview material and photos from me and a couple of other bloggers. You could maybe put a case to argue that I’m a tad biased, but I think that knit-blogging is a lot of fun, so if you’re tempted to try, here’s some advice. Part two next month.
And that, my fine fibrous friends, is pretty much all for this evening. Very much more to come…

The Stoic Spouse told me re the house. No idea how he knew.
Love those earrings – so appropriate. Could you please let me know the issue number of the magazine? they’re always so late getting Down Under it’s not the “current” issue on the stand…..currently. Ta.
So happy you got your earrings and are enjoying them! Thanks so much for the mention- I am thrilled to be a part of your blog! Cheers-
Julia of Jewelia Designs

I love the ear rings! I think if I charged everyone £1 to look at the shark house I might be able to afford it; that’s about 4.6 x more expensive then my 3 bed in south wales!

Unique and awesome earrings!
I thought that this was going to be a plaid post. I read your title as “When a Kilt-Lover Goes Shopping”. Those knitty earrings are tasty Ms T. I am sure that if we lived in Auld Blighty, Steve would put up a solid case for us moving to Chez Shark, but I can’t help thinking that whoever had to sleep in the attic might be scared for life.
