Pencil Case

Got sick of biro ink getting all over the inside of my bag and gradually making everything I own grubby, so I finally made a pencil case. It was loosely inspired by this pattern, but I modified it a whole lot. It’s much narrower, longer, has a different number of buttons, and a few other smaller changes.

I think I’ll try to knit an ipod case in a similar way, but with even more adjustments, like maybe a pocket or pouch for the earphones. If I manage this, I’ll record the pattern in case anyone else wants it.

Chip Shop

Made this today, it’s a very simple design with very few graphics. A good practice exercise for a simple web form with a couple of simple calculations in it. I was fairly happy with how it turned out. The colours used are blue and white, because they remind me of salt and vinegar, which remind me of chips. Mmmm chips…cloggy goodness…


Welcome to my blog.

It’s not really a proper blog, about life and social things, but a place to put ideas, drawings, thoughts, pictures, plans and news.

So no scandal and gossip…what a shame!
