Pre-blog knitting projects

My Daisy Scarf Has Been Ravelryified….

If you read any number of knitting blogs, you will have already heard of Ravelry. I was luck enough to hear about Ravelry quite early on in it’s quest for Beta testers and got my invite in July. If you want to look me up, my username is the fabulously imaginative “susancrowe”…. For those of […]

When Felting Turns Bad….

My knitting news this week isn’t the stuff that will make an enthralling blog post…. I haven’t touched Eveleen but I’ve made lots more blankie squares (I’ve now done 30 out of 81 required!) There. That was dull huh? Don’t change channel yet readers! I think it’s time to share with you the reason I […]

Dolly bag ….a bag for my dollies?

I was taking a peek at Diva Maggie’s blog and saw she was doing the Rowan International free gift – the Dolly bag. I said, “Ohhh, I’ve done that too” Maggie said, “It’s not on your blog- let us see????” So here is the little beastie… I really enjoyed doing this bag, even the finger […]

Sublime “The Big Frill” Bolero

Knitting progress is slow 🙁 Decorating progress is good 🙂 The paint is dry, the radiator is back on and kicking out much needed heat, furniture and junk back in the room. I am no longer in painty poo clothes and covered head to toe with dust – deep joy. The room looks 100 times […]

“Buck” the Starbucks Bear

I belong to a knitting circle – The Knaughty Knitters. Two or three times a month on a Sunday, we rattle the doors of Starbucks at opening time, bag the best comfy seats with our knitting, grab a coffee then sit and spend the whole morning knitting, chatting, coffee drinking, “oohing” over each other’s knitting […]

Rosita in Jaeger Siena – Lacy top

Here’s another from my back catalog. This is from Jaeger’s JB35 Siena book and is on the front cover…I seem to have a habit of knitting what’s on the front cover … maybe the best garments are chosen for the cover?? I found this to be a very challenging knit – the only lacy thing […]

Knits for Barbie by Nicky Epstein – a review and some garments!

This is a lovely book to play with, like me, if you like to knit tiny fiddly things! The photography and layout are inspiring and easy to use. The garments are varied but an awful lot of tops – I was hoping for more trousers and skirts and more tailoring – there are hundreds of […]

Where to start with knittie stuff???

I have dozens and dozens of knitted garments – where do I start? I think, I should tell you what I’m doing right now and, when it gets boring (during the endless rows to finish the second sleeve – yawn) I’ll pull another garment out of my “back catalog”…any better ideas I’d love to hear […]
