Cable frenzy

The knitting goes on. Having a go at cable - this is a bit full on as it's all cable and I'm knitting with two yarns at the same time to make it thicker. Quite hard work. I may end up having the most eccentric yoga mat bag in town...

The Victorian House of Arts and Crafts


Six makers - a bladesmith, an embroiderer, a product designer, a cabinet maker, a silversmith and a ceramicist - dressed up in Victorian garb and stuffed into an old house for a month to make items items in the Arts and Crafts style. Using only the tools, processes and materials of the time and trying to recapture Morris's ethos of finding joy and community in work... this is my kind of reality TV. What's not to like? A thoroughly enjoyable series. 

Episode one is no longer available but catch two, three and four here.
