Victor in a Jumper, he's not strange, he just wants to live his life this way

Here is my dad Victor wearing one of my latest knit pieces from the technical knitting project I did last term, styled by himself in a pair of comedy glasses we had when I went back home! It forms part of my 'Tailoring' project lineup, of which I still have to knit another outfit for. Today has so far been a day of paperwork, technical drawings and pattern cutting so the garments can be my main focus for the rest of the week. Knitting at home always looks a bit chaotic I think you will agree!

Under the Iron Bridge

The Smiths performing a really good version of Still Ill on a programme called The Tube in 1984.

There's no place like home..

With it being the Easter Break at the RCA, i took a few days off to go back up North and recharge my batteries. First I went to visit my Aunti Mitzi, who is almost a fully qualified nail technician for her to manicure my nails.. every knitters needs to look after their most important tools after all!

I also dabbled in crocheting some 'granny squares'..

My brother Thomas turned 25 on Easter Sunday too (Happy Birthday Tomlette!)

And whilst I was visiting my mum, I noticed she had this really old picture of the two of us when we were about 4 or 5 and I was a bridesmaid and he was a pageboy, which I thought you might quite like to see.

All in all I had a really nice stay. Now its time to get cracking with the knitting again!


With the recent lovely weather we have been having, I thought it was time to get some plants for the balcony I have in my flat. You can't beat a bit of colourfulness, especially when it comes to springtime flowers! Here are a few close-ups:

Lovely Petunias, daffodils and hyacinths. Who needs plantpots when you can use extra large mugs?!


In addition to working at the RCafe in the RCA, I have had a little job at Superdrug on High Street Kensington for the past couple of months. My new name badge came the other day, so not only am I a knitter but I have now become a Beauty Specialist..! Can you beautify knitting do you think? Below is a sneaky pic of the wall in the staffroom!
