Planning on paper….

A peek in Section 5 of my Filofax Original…

I use this section to plan and organise DKC events and projects.

Jot, take note, write is my method of brain dumping on paper. Plotting out the 10th anniversary of WWKIP Day in Rathmines…


The DKC is participating in the Blooming Bunting Project…
Jotting down my contact at Bloom Fringe and working out the actual project to meet the short deadline…


I have several brain dumping notes, and came up with shopping trip to a yarn shop just outside of Dublin…





This month marks two years of pilates…. I am absolutely delighted with my slow achievements:

one hundreds… high plank… pilates push ups (I can do four : ) … jack-knife … and finally I get the breathing….

What has kept me going?

Accessibility of my local gym…it’s in my neighbourhood.

Drive and determination… my progress was very slow but I have a Spouse who encouraged me to keep at it.

Friendship…. I have a new circle of friends who do not knit ; )

International Nurses Day


Happy International Day to all my nursing colleagues, friends and family who are in the nursing profession.

It is often thought that medicine is the curative process. It is no such thing; medicine is the surgery of functions, as surgery proper is that of limbs and organs. Neither can do anything but remove obstructions; neither can cure; nature alone cures. Surgery removes the bullet out of the limb, which is an obstruction to cure, but nature heals the wound. So it is with medicine; the function of an organ becomes obstructed; medicine so far as we know, assists nature to remove the obstruction, but does nothing more. And what nursing has to do in either case, is to put the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon him.

Stash Acquisition


Last weekend I scored a yarn cake of Fleece Artist Merino from my friend, Isobel who was having a destash sale.

It is a gorgeous colourway that will coordinate nicely with my Filofax  Original.

I looked through my Ravelry favourites and the Easy as Pie shawl is calling of to me.

My second acquisition is this beautiful skein of Malabrigo Lace a colourway.  I absolutely love it!


I also bought one more item to match my nails. …


Which will become a pair of socks.
