Wool on Sundays – 137 (Moving on…)


Welcome to another Wool on Sundays and thank you very much to everyone who visited and commented on my last post :)


I’m having a huge struggle to get back into blogland this year and even to settle into properly making anything, not least because we seem to have fallen into a family theme of moving on in the last couple of weeks.

Son #3 has gone to Australia with a year’s Visa and hoping to find work and stay until October when he and Son #2 are going to be joint best men at Son #1’s wedding.

Daughter #1 and her partner have moved into a new house. It’s a lovely house not too far from us and they were very lucky to find it but, unfortunately, the previous owners left it in a terrible state so a simple house move turned into an intensive cleaning operation.

And Son #1 will be coming to stay later this week with his fiancee and her parents and, with a little assistance from Mr RH, I have re-painted Son #3’s room so Fiancee #1’s parents will have somewhere nice to stay.

Unless you count a little baby knitting, I haven’t managed to move on at all myself but being a general assistant and accessory to all and sundry somehow manages to take up a lot of time!

For a while now, though, I’ve been wondering whether to move on from Wool on Sundays. On the one hand, I love to visit and be inspired by the posts of everyone who visits. But on the other hand, Wool on Sundays has rather taken over my blog. It has definitely motivated me to make a lot of things from wool and yarn but I think it has very much drawn me away from sewing and I would also like to make some more patterns and perhaps finish the Granny Square story series…So, after a lot of consideration, I have decided to make Wool on Sundays a monthly linky party to be posted on the first Sunday of every month. Anyone will be welcome to link up any number of wool/yarn themed posts from the month and I hope that will be a sort of ‘best of both worlds’. If anyone has any other thoughts or suggestions about that, do let me know.


If you have any wool/yarn posts to share, this week, I’d love you to link up. The rules, as usual, are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links. 

The next Wool on Sundays post will be on Sunday 5th February.

    Bless you, it looks like you’ve been busy! I think a monthly link up sounds fab, I like to join in but some weeks feel like my contribution is a bit boring (it tends to feel a bit samey when you’re working on a big project!) I’ll look out for your sewing posts 😊

    Your kids are off doing exciting stuff – that’s great! But it can certainly cause a lot of upheaval on the home front – you do what you need to do to get through the day, and we’ll follow along with whatever works for you, Janine :) It’s always lovely to see your projects – yarn-based or not – and it’s always cool to hear (and see!) what’s going on in crafty homes in other parts of the world!

    I think a monthly linky party is an excellent idea. That way we get to see your lovely knitted woollies and read more whimsical and exquisite tales about Granny Square, Knit and Purl……I have missed them. =) You have been very busy. So your son is coming to stay a while in Australia….I wonder if I will pass him in the streets.

    Well, Your life is certainly in one of those life transitions. Funny how our kids changing lifes effect ours so much. It feels like switching the blog up a bit is appropriate too and might help you to turn your creative interests in a different direction. Do What You Love. Sometimes that changes. My love switches from crochet, to embroidery and sewing. I love them all equally. No matter what, just DO what you love.

    Don’t be too hard on yourself! Life gets in the way a lot of times! When I get really into something I get really into it, sometimes to the detriment of other things. I look forward to seeing whatever posts make you happy, wool or sewing or both!

    You’ve done a brilliant job starting Wool on Sunday and a big thank you for that. And another big thank you for continuing it on once a month, despite your busy life. I look forward to reading about your sewing too of course.
