I would have, but I was terrified it was full of moth lavae. It went straight in the dustbin!

I made this!…And it’s not Kidsilk Haze!! How can this be? When I saw this image in a mailshot from the online knitting store, Deramores, I instantly fell in love. I wear that shape of shawl as a scarf and around my shoulders quite a lot – I wanted to make it. But, as someone […]
Even with Pixie biting my yarn and needles, I have managed to finish my last WIP! New year’s resolution completed!! (OK, last WIP if you don’t count the Autumn Rose Sweater I abandoned in 2013 because it was coming up too small…Those pesky Guilty Knitters won’t let me forget that one cos they want to […]
I have the best excuse for not blogging or knitting much. I have a kitten! It’s taken Ben and I nearly 3 years to get over losing our beautiful little Purcey and be ready for another fluff-bundle in our lives. So here she is….Pixie! We’ve had Pixie a month so she’s 12 weeks old now – […]
Another WIP completed from the WIP pile… Here is the Masika Skirt – another lovely from Purl Alpaca… This is a super design of a skirt and quite an easy knit once you get the rhythm of the cables. It is essentially a tube with identical panels of cables at the back and front. The […]

[…]
While I’m slogging my way though the Tartan Blanket, Here’s another Purl Alpaca lovely that I completed over a year ago(!) 😮 This is me in Lorelle… It’s a lovely light, lofty sweater, knit completely in the round from the bottom up. I loved how the two stitch cables worked to form the zigzag details.(I […]
At my new job, we are given one day a year to do something for charity as part of our corporate responsibility program. Wonderful! But what could I do? What unique skill do I have to help a charity? I have made these little hats for The Big Knit (a fundraising thing helped by Innocent Smoothies […]
I was horrified to discover I have four WIPs – you know how I like to be the “One WIP Girl”, being oh so smug about how quickly I finish an item because I work on one thing at a time? I’ve fallen off that wagon! 😮 I had intended to spend the long Christmas […]
