I would have, but I was terrified it was full of moth lavae. It went straight in the dustbin!
Misurina is more spicy than I expected! So much going on in this little top. This week I swatched and cast on another of my aquisitions from Unravel festival in February – Misurina Tee by Caitlin Hunter. This is the pattern pic… Lace around the neck. And cables. And a big fairisle pattern with huge […]
“What’s on the needles now?”, I hear you cry! Erm actually it’s “on the hook” – Crochet hook that is. I’ve got a little Hat Crazy the last couple of weeks – it started with this! The Rowan Margarida Hat in Rowan Cotton Glace (or Handknit Cotton.) I knew I had a bag of left […]
I’m finding it hard to give up on old and dated handknits. There should be a handknit garment retirement home where they are cooed over, petted, paid compliments, and treated like venerated elders.
Some of my knitting choices are so awful, you just have to point and laugh.
It occurred to me that in my last post I was talking about quite small and precise quantities of yarn – 26g of a 50g skein for example.

It is a wonderfully inventive top down pattern made entirely of 1×1 fairisle, changing both colours every row. It’s intended as a stashbuster to use up all […]

It started 10 years ago, in 2009, in a yarn buying frenzy in the John Lewis Sale. I joyfully skipped to the checkout with 20 balls of delicious black Rowan RYC Silk Wool DK in my clutches. “That will make Ben a super jumper”, I thought….. Eight years later, in 2017, my constant waving of […]
