Kittens and Stripes is finished! Just in time for the weather to turn horrid and for me to have the nasty 3 week long cold that everyone seems to be getting. <<Insert tiny violin here>> I have really enjoyed making this scarf! It was fun, colourful and easy enough to be able to get a […]
This post my contain sand, suncream and a just a little envy inducing showing off. It may also be clumsily typed and badly spelt because I’m fighting the auto correct on my tablet (not as easy to type as at my computer at my desk!) So what’s going on? Ben and I are on holiday […]
You know how much I love Rowan Kidsilk Haze. I love fluffy mohairy yarns. I even like to use KSH double where in makes a thick DK type weight hairy, fuzzy garment. But sometimes I don’t want quite that much fuzz. (This isn’t 1983 after all!) Imagine my delight to see a pattern using one […]

I think I had been pushing too hard at reducing my WIPs and getting through my queue without stopping to […]
My knitting mojo in waning a bit – probably an early onset attack of my usual SKS (That’s “Summer Knitting Slump”) and my blogging mojo has suddenly been even worse! But I have been knitting…and using the washing machine 😮 Fortunately, the washing machine turned and untidy, gappy, unevenly knit, coarse garment into a soft, […]
“Wow! Did you really knit that?” is a phrase I have been basking in hearing for the last couple of weeks 😀 Why? Because I have been wearing my finished Esme! Esme has turned out to be a beautiful garment 🙂 Because I chose the cream alpaca yarn, it is spun slightly differently to the […]
