Tag: The Twisted Yarn

This is me being helpful, see ..?

Phil, the gasp-making knitter I posted about some days back, has herself posted about re-growing vegies – one of her many “gardening” activities (inverted commas to divide this one from those where she is actually out in the garden). Definitely worth reading, as it’s couched within writing about knitting !

This is of great interest to me: buying seeds is fairly expensive; and the whole process fraught with the difficulty of dealing with flying or crawling or hatching pests.

So I draw your attention — in the event that you, too, should wish to have in your kitchen some vegies that are much easier to produce than are their seeds alone — to this YouTube video.

You’ll find that it actually IS helpful, once you can get your head around the mechanically- (I s’pose I should say ‘electronically-‘) produced voice-over .. I find these largely entertaining, as they’re generally appalling with phrasing: I’ve heard some that have so puzzled me as to prevent comprehension of some sentences; but this one isn’t as bad as that. Promise.

OK, that’s it – my contribution to the Covid-19 time-filling agenda.

A rave about a blogger

There is a Pom up there in the country where Spring is happening who has a blog called “The Twisted Yarn”.

She is without peer in her field – mostly because her field is not small. Phil is a truly expert knitter, hence my choice of category; but she has a wonderful garden in which she does wonderful things; she has 9-y-o twins (“the twinnage”) upon whom she dotes in a practical manner; she has an almost tame robin (“Robyn”) who consumes meal-worms with an appetite more than merely voracious and is fast becoming tame; she takes photos to die for; and more than any of that she has a sense of humour that is immensely appealing and, to me, satisfying because I recognize it.   :)

She is compiling a book. This is not one iota surprising because her knitting prowess is amazing; but it IS amazing when considering how much she manages to fit into her life.

I hope that anyone reading this will take the time to check out Phil(ippa)’s blog: it is so very worth it that you will thank me.

:D

I told you she’s an expert !
