Clangers and Cozies!

Well...I have been having a bit of a crafting weekend..it was long over due..!! To start off with a couple of years ago, my mum knitted me a clanger from the original pattern that was actually used on the 1970s tv show. But its been sat in my knitting bag since then - as I was never happy with the colour - too bright pink.. But I happened apon an some info on the WWW, and apparently they dyed the wool in tea.. So I'm hoping to fiddle about with my clanger this week, currently in the airing…

French knitting - we used to make table mats by coiling the finished "snake" and securing with stitches. akl.

Corking!

Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved corking. I guess that's why I wrote a book on it! Corking is an unusual name for a really fun craft. This form of knitting has other names, too, such as spool knitting or French knitting. I recently bought a lovely old-fashioned corker: Through the years, I've made pot holders, small rugs, chair pads, bendable animals, hair bands, puppets, scarves and many more items out of my corking. I'm tickled to have another use for it: I've stitched a loopy…

August 16, 1977 - Elvis Presley died. I remember coming out of work and getting into my car and hearing the news on the radio that afternoon.  I was in total shock!

Exquisitely Bored in Nacogdoches

Rick Astley has somehow mangaged to escape the prolific and successful (as of late) Grim Reaper, and he is not yet dead. So, I guess that means he is never gonna give us up, and we will be together forever. I'm pretty sure these are two different songs:

What happened to the slot for the threepenny bit??

Marathon (1968) Marathon came to the UK courtesy of Forrest Mars Sr, estranged from the family business in the States, but free to adapt the recipes for European tastes. Aside from his eponymous bar packed with milk, sugar, glucose, and thick, thick chocolate, Mars' Slough-produced cash cow was a peanut-powered derivative of the American Snickers (the name was apparently tribute to the Mars family's favourite horse).
