Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Love the Yarn

This is the beginnings of a textile sculpture entitled 'Love the Yarn'. I happened upon it last week when I visited the Festival Hall on the Southbank in London.
Once I read this sign that was it, I was hooked.

I love knitting and couldn't resist picking up a pair of needles and some wool and adding my own contribution to the sculpture.

It was a very social event chatting whilst we knitted. I was only sorry that I had missed the other two workshops as I enjoyed it so much.

My work of art swimming through the yarn!


  1. Oh that is fun, I would have liked to share in the knitting too. In my heydays I have knitted so many jumpers.

  2. I'm surprised you knit, but I should not be. Your work does not dominate, but makes up as part.

  3. What a fun idea. Good for you joining in.

  4. I would have joined in, too. What fun! Perhaps they will do it again and you'll be at all the events. :-)

  5. What a cool sculpture and a fun idea! Thanks for sharing, enjoy your new week!

  6. What a fun piece of artwork! And everyone gets to contribute.

  7. Wonderful idea. My Mum knits too. I'm always so impressed with people who can knit. It's a declining art form and looks very difficult to me!


Thank-you for reading my blog. I would love to read your comments.
