'Versary - and prizegiving

I realised last night that today is the 4th anniversary of starting this blog; and dug out a photo from this month which seems to express the essence of it...



Knitting, chaos and cat. That works.


And over the last year: the garden. Photo taken at 3:15ish today....

Thanks for bearing with me; particularly over the last couple of months where IE8 and Blogger have been At War -this seems to have improved, it seems that manipulation of photos doesn't mean three versions of a browser just to switch two photos round... Now that's sorted, am hoping to do a post a day in November as last year...

Thanks for the lovely encouraging comments on the garden over the last few months, even if you didn't want to see a garden on a knitting blog; and thanks for the chivvying along when I've not been making enough progress for you. Honestly, the comments on the garden have sometimes made the difference between going out the following weekend, or not...

Four years ago I was working in a job I hated, and I was at Ally Pally as part of a stitched textiles group I felt somewhat out of my depth with, although all the people I worked with there were wonderful. These days I really like my job, although I work slightly mad hours, and am a Knitter...

As is customary, a prize will be given for a blogiversary. But no contest, or anything... Just please, leave a comment before Sandi O'Clock (which means 6:30pm British Summer Time, when The News Quiz comes on on Radio 4, on Friday 23rd October); a prize will be awarded on random comment numbers...

Well, you know I love such contests! It must be about 4 years since the knitted wedding, which is where I met Rosie and heard about the Cambridge knit nights.

Happy Anniversary. While I'm a knitter, I do appreciate the non-knitting topics - like reviews of books that may not have come to my attention before you reviewed them.

Happy blogiversarry - I think Bug likes that piece of knitting!

As a non-gardener I've enjoyed seeing the progress this year with the guilty pleasure of one who's Sunday afternoons are spent knitting

Happy, happy Blogiversary to you. I utterly enjoy your blog, from feline to garden [which, btw, looks fantastic in that last pic!]to knitting to life in general. May you have many more wonderful years of posting ahead.

I've slacked off my little blog for too long - preoccupied with weight loss, then 2 months in the US, then 1 month in a state of depression. Crawling out into the light now, so perhaps I will start updating. Am even knitting some!

Happy bloggiversary. I've enjoyed your blog ever since we met at the Safari last year, so am a late comer, but I hope it continues for many years to come.

Well your garden puts ours to shame, as I never have enough time to be there when the weather and light are good.
All I need is a way to knit on my 10 minute each way cycle commute as I rarely have the time otherwise.

Happy 'Versary.

Thanks for the heads up. Do I tell my friends, or keep it quiet?

And now I have to go and read your blog from the beginning (mostly because I am nosey).

You started blogging just before I moved to Cambridge. Which means I've been in Cambridge nearly 4 years. Eek!

Here's to many more years of blogging and Cambridge living.
