It's been an awfully long time since I last blogged and, to be honest, I don't know if I will keep up the enthusiasm or whether it will all peter out again. Having said that, my enthusiasm for sharing my crafty endeavours has been reinvigorated by my increasing need to be less of a consumer and more of a producer. So this blog will now include not only my spinning and knitting but also cooking and gardening.
The most exciting bit of news is that I am on the waiting list for an allotment! The very nice lady at Banbury Town Council said that I would probably get one this year as the list is quite short and lots of people give up their plots when the renewal notices go out in March.
The basil is a lot less far along than the tomatoes, still only the first two, not proper, leaves but I think nearly all the seeds have sprouted. I sowed two types, Red Leaved and Sweet Green.
I've also finished two pairs of socks so far this year.
