ChezPlum was hacked !!

Posted: Friday, November 28th, 2008 @ 3:14 pm in Knitting | 3 Comments »

Argh, ChezPlum was hacked earlier this week, apparently due to a security hole in WordPress. :-/ Thankfully my husband managed to finally fix things today, reinstalled the last version of WordPress, migrating ChezPlum to a new server and re-uploading all the pictures. It will probably look all wonky for a while until we manage to […]

I have lovely models for my shawl around… :-) It’s now blocked and looking pretty perfect. I finally decided against the button closure. It’s just lovely, lightweight and warm around my shoulders… In fact I’m wearing it this morning as I type this post. Oh and I realised I forgot to add details. The yarn […]

When designing new patterns, I like to have a look at a million pictures of related-or-not projects, as it seems to help decide what I actually look for in that new design. As some of you may have figured, I’m on this total granny-square kick lately. So I’ve been hunting the internet, looking for all […]
