Last year loyal readers may remember that we had a blog week, well there is going to be another one this year – whoop! Last year for whatever reason, I never finished my week’s posting, so I’ve challenged myself to finish last years before this years begins.

Experimental blogging day to try and push your creativity in blogging to the same level that you perhaps push your creativity in the items you create.

There are no rules of a topic to blog about (though some suggestions are given below) but this post should look at a different way to present content on your blog. This can take one of many forms, but here a few suggestions: Wordless, photographic post Video blog post Podcast Cartoon/sketch of an idea Write about a subject from a different perspective (for example, you could write about a day in the life of a knitted sock from the point of view of the sock). Interpretive modern dance (why does someone always suggest this? A poem or piece of rhyming verse Stop motion animation.

Today’s blog is being brought to you from my phone, which is rather apt as I wanted to tell you about my trip to Mimi’s house.

We got there on Saturday evening to the gorgeous smell of curry cooking and instantly got handed a glass of wine (that’s my girl 😉 ) and so the evening began.

I was given sock yarn for my Hexipuffs and had my first every sock knitting lesson. Mimi taught me how to cast on using a new method (long tail I believe it was) and how to start off my ribbing. At least that was the plan, I think it took us about three attempts each to make sure I had the correct amount of stitches on the needles… all that wine’s fault of course. When Mimi had eventually sorted me out, I got to it and have about an inch of ribbed cuff across four DPNs, it was a bit tricky as I’d never used them before, but I already feel like I’m getting the hang of it.


Spare Sock Yarn and Wine. 😀

While chatting about sock knitting and being shown her spinning, Mimi also taught me a lot about different things I could do to my blog, I’m hoping to put some of them into practise sooner rather than later. I actually feel like I’ve been on a course for the weekend I have learned so much,  but a very enjoyable course with curry and wine and pancakes for breakfast!

Mimi, you were most excellent and I love you loads, it’s not just the Mr that’s Awsome, you both are. Thank you so much for a wonderful couple of days.

Moar Puffs!

Hexipuffs of Awesome

Now, when can I come back to sort out the heel…? 😀

I had to come back to this post at my PC as it wouldn’t let me insert the photo’s, boo.
