A bit of a geek!

If you haven't already guessed it, I'll admit to being a bit of a geek! I suppose I'm infulenced a lot by my children and the programs they love, but I've always had a love/hate relationship with Zombies!!!  So of course, the Walking Dead has always been a huge favourite with us all.
After the tragic episodes of season 7, Moomin and I decided to go back to the beginning and start all over again. We're now on season 4 and what am I obsessing with? Sasha's gorgeous jumper. I've scoured the internet and various knitting sites and cannot find anything close to this fairisle pattern. The colours match a lot of wool I just happen to have (!!!) and I really want to have a go, so if anyone can suggest something suitable please, please leave a comment or better still a link :D
Back in the real world, my beans are now planted and protected from slugs by little circles cut from lemonade bottles! I won't use slug pellets ever again after watching a vet program in which a little puppy nearly died from ingesting the pellets :(
In my lovely galvanised buckets, the salads are shooting up, yay :D
I can't finish this post without a picture of our comfort supper of fish pie with petite pois and asparagus, yum!
And finally, Cotton looking funny :D She's always laid out like this since a kitten. She copies the dog, haha :D
Edited to add: I've just been informed by my lovely children that I'm actually a nerd, not technically a geek!!! Well, glad that's cleared up then ;)


  1. Patterns, you could try Ravelry - they have a lot of stuff on there. I have Alice Starmore - Fair Isle Knitting (you would have to make up a similar pattern though). Sometimes I think it is just as nice to knit without forethought or pattern and allow something to unfold ;)

  2. So nerd it is. :) I'm a scatterbrain, but you know, I'm a very sweet scatterbrain, so you are a very sweet nerd!!! I go to Ravelry too when I'm looking for patterns. Also I use All Free Knitting. They have lots of free stuff on there, but you really have to look through it all.

    Your fish pie looks delicious!!! I picked my first lettuce last night! Hurray for lettuce lol! :)

  3. Thank you Thelma, I've only just begun to master knitting from patterns, but I know what you're saying :D

    Rain, Yay for

  4. The jumper is a Free People Fuzzy Fairisle Pullover and can bought but I am sure it would be possible to recreate something similar

  5. I found it Dawn, but it's currently out of stock. I'll try to make something maybe!

  6. i really likes your blog and You have shared the whole concept really well. and Very beautifully soulful read! thanks for sharing.
