Groundhog Day

Like the scenario of what is arguably the best film ever, we appear to be trapped in a neverending Winter. At this very moment, it is attempting to snow outside my window. Apparently last weekend was the coldest Easter Sunday since records began. On the one hand, this is of course fabulous for those of us with a penchant for sturdy handknits. Even after all the hours of toil and all the piles of yarn in my stash have been accounted for, the cost-to-benefit ratio of my handmade sweaters has skyrocketed in the last few months – never before have I got so much wear out of my jumpers, scarves, gloves and hats. But, despite the woolly love, I think I speak for everyone when I say ENOUGH ALREADY!


Meanwhile, I believe I may have mentioned something about 2013 being the Year of Weddings for me. It has already started – I was at a wedding a couple of weeks ago. Only another seven to go. Going to a wedding every month is creating another Groundhog day experience, although one that is of course vastly more pleasant than recurring hypothermia. Nevertheless, I’m afraid this is going to impact on the podcasting front – from the middle of April, I will be at a hen (bachelorette) party or a wedding every weekend for a month. Essentially, I am living in a Richard Curtis movie.

So please bear with me if there are gaps in the service. I’m trying to blog more, as that’s easy to do on fly, and I have exciting plans afoot (my first pattern is being test knitted!), and I’m planning to record this weekend, so there’s still lots going on at Hoxton HQ.

Meanwhile, I need to go and dig the Sheep out of a snowdrift in Wales….
