Hi, I’m Mr Knitter, I am a Baron and a Reverend and live in the North of the UK with my Husband and two dogs, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Harper-Lee, and an English Springer Spaniel Mazikeen. I have far too many hobbies, including photography, reading, writing, gardening and of course, knitting. I learned to knit when I was a kid, but it was a short-lived thing due to lack of funds for… Read More
This week on The Daily Post our photo challenge was “Satisfaction”, and I think after this little ant has had his fill of the jam I put on the bin for him, he will definitely feel satisfaction. He and his buddies were roaming about across the garden waste bin, obviously looking for something to eat, or to take back to the nest, so back to the kitchen for a blob of jam, and then to… Read More
Today our new high-speed router arrived. Knowing how many items I have attached to our old router I was rolling my eyes at the thought of having to add all 27 devices, however, I had read an article last night regarding routers, and that changing the SSID and the password on the new router to the old details it will auto connect to all the existing devices. With this new knowledge, I… Read More
Growing up in the country there were many smells/fragrances about, from livestock to equine to rapeseed, but there are other smells that also take me back in time. The smell of an outboard motor reminds me of a holiday when I was about 10 in my uncle’s speedboat, fishing in the North Atlantic. Lavender, scones, evaporated milk, streaky bacon all remind me of being in my maternal Nans kitchen, apricot brandy and… Read More
M has a laptop his Dad bought him about 5 years ago, however, the last week it has been playing up, and at the weekend it decided that it would do a so called update/repair, and had been stuck on 4% for 2 days solid. Yesterday I decided to surprise him with a new high speed one with lots of memory and a massive hard drive. Needless to say, he was a… Read More
I love gothic/Victorian clothing, I always have, and luckily enough, they seem to suit me. However, there is one sweater that I would love to make myself, and it is this one modelled by Josh Hartnett as Ethan Chandler in Penny Dreadful season two. I love the simplicity of it, the colour and the detail of the shoulder closing. It is simple and yet divine. If anyone knows of a knitting pattern that… Read More
We upgraded our broadband about a year ago from 12mbps to 40mbpb fibre. After adding so much onto our system lately in the form of Amazon Dots, Hue lighting, Echos, Ring and much much more I thought it was time to increase the speed of the system as there was an offer with our ISP, double our speed for an extra £5 a month, so it seemed silly not to go for… Read More

Because I am a traveller I can look down on the birds and up at the fishes. I collect moments and can venture back in time to lost worlds. I seize life and simultaneously escape it at will. Because I am a traveller I envy no man at home.
