Oh my goodness I recently had a go on a gerardt sock knitting machine at the Framework knitters Museum in Nottingham, and it was fascinating

Ok so I may be a bit behind in replying to topics but today I've tried to reply to two topics and I've been told no topics found what's going on

That's lovely I wish that in England we felt as proud as Americans do of your flag

Years ago probably 1970ish I travelled down to Canberra on the back over a friends motorbike and boy did it rain. Thankfully the rain stopped and the weather turned really nice. Obviously that was a long time ago so perhaps it will probably be nicer now.

Another possibility if you don't want to try the polymer clay is soft foam tubes with narrow centres that you can put on the hook. This way softer to hold and thicker so not as hard on the hands holding a small diameter hook. An advantage of hooks over needles!


That's a very good idea. I will try that. Thanks

I love these hooks. So comfortable to use.


Thanks for that I will check them out

I used some plymer clay to make a handle. You can find that and other ways to add some padding. One suggestion was to use pet medical wrap.


You're cleverer than me, have never got on polymer clay. Don't know what I do wrong but it never goes right for me.

For years I've used metal crochet hooks, but recently I find they really hurt my fingers where I hold them the thumb is right over the printing of the size. My question is what do people use that are comfortable. I'm loathe to get rid of my set of hooks as my Mum bought them for me 40 years ago, but my thumb really hurts.

I'm well behind with reading kp but I've just seen your bunny bag and I so wish I had a little girl to knit something like that. It's adorable

I realise you posted a while back but I've got so far behind checking kp. I used to love my pressure cooker when I had gas. But when we moved there was only electricity and it didn't work on that, so I no longer have one . Boo hoo

Eons ago, in the late '60's, I had one. My old fashioned nurse grandmother fixed it with a home remedy. She had me lay my hand flat on the table & she slammed it with a huge dictionary. It hurt,bruised my hand, but the cyst disappeared. I'd recommend going with a physician. Easier on the table. And with Google, who still has a big dictionary?


Goodness, your comments reminded me of when my mum had one on the back of her hand. It got rather large and she wanted rid of it, so she had her hand on the top of the bannister and she told me to hit it. Being only about 9 years old at the times she probably thought I wouldn't hit it too hard. So I got the dictionary and hit it as hard as I could. She was very surprised I'd hit it so hard. The outcome was it disappeared. She is now 96 and I'm 67 and we both remember it very well.

For the first time ever a Bluetit made its home in a bird box on the side of the house. At first I heard a tapping every so often that went on for quite a while. Eventually we heard the lovely sound of baby Bluetits after a very short time mum was out feeding two little babies. Alas now they have fledged and the nest is now empty. Hope they come back next year.
A few years ago we regularly had a blackbird and his two youngsters in the garden. He was the one that fed them. Alas for the last year or two I've not seen them. All we get now is starlings, pigeons and crows that decimate the bird feeders before the sparrows can get them.

That is so very sad. I do have a cat but he's 19 years old. He can walk through the garden where birds are and he takes no notice of them. I think he realises that he can't run fast enough anymore so he doesn't bother trying. Even when he was young he preferred frogs to birds. But 9 times out of 10 I could rescue the frog and put back in the pond while he stayed where he was sniffing the ground where the frog had been. Couldn't help feeling sorry for him but glad the frog was safe to live another day.
