Leeds Zombie Film Festival

Darren and I are huge film fans, especially horror...and you can't beat a good zombie yesterday we went to the 2nd Leeds Zombie Film Festival and watched a marathon of zombie films (6 to be exact) from 12 noon to midnight. Darren and our mate Ian made silicone masks for the event. Darren is the black zombie. He is also in the 2nd photo between Dominic and Mark. (with an even scarier mask on!!! sorry babe! x)
The event is the brainchild of Dominic and Mark (aka Paddy and Marlon) and it's in aid of the charity WSPA
A great day was had by all!

Stray-local radio

Stray A link to my local radio station.


I've been on a training course all week, TCI (Therapeutic Crisis Intervention). It's VERY interesting and I really enjoyed it but talk about stressing over it...It was a 5 day course and we had a 3 part test yesterday. I was so chuffed cos I passed!!! 95% on the theory!!! WOW!

What it does mean is that I've done no housework all week, each day was exhauting and it was a 40mile drive each way (1 1/2hrs) but more importantly I've not done any knitting!

I've been very good lately at reducing my stash. I had a stacker box full of DK Sirdar snowflake which I didn't like knitting with, so I combined a few strands together and used my looms to make scarfs. I've got loads of them now!

So I was very chuffed with myself!

Then last Saturday we were in Wilkinson's and they had 50g balls of fluffy wool (great for scarfs) for 50p each. So I bought a basket full!

It's a good job scarfs are quick to make and that I give them to Loving Hands and sell them at Craft Fairs!

Today I feel like chilling and knitting.....

I'm finally back!!

Hello world I'm still alive and knitting!!! Well what with Uni work and my pc 's motherboard going, I never thought I'd be back online!!

Luckily for me Darren bought me a new pc as an early birthday present (shall I let him use it then???!). I've now got to catch up with everything.

So what has been going on in the knitting/online world....looks like there's lots to catch up on!
