I would have, but I was terrified it was full of moth lavae. It went straight in the dustbin!
I have cracked on with my Midwinter cushion and sewn together two cushion panels. Wanna see? I’m really happy with these… Sewing the blocks together was very fiddley as the dots in the edging of each block made it scream if each stitch was not perfectly aligned. I have learnt that, in mattress stitch, you […]
Lucky me – it’s been a week of green gifts – knitterly and otherwise 😀
I’ve had Blue theme the last couple of weeks – the colour not the mood! Both my latest Knitting WIP and my DIY projects are the same shade of blue!
Who is Jacquard Ladderback? A late Georgian Era, gentleman thief to rival Raffles with his fiendish cunning and skill? Fiendishly cunning and skilled is right …but it’s actually a new knitting technique I’ve learnt to help with the long fairisle floats for Misurina. (It’s usually call Ladderback Jacquard but that didn’t sound as fun 😉 )
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 […]
I’ve just finished this! 😀 I cast on in June 2018 but it has been a background project – this isn’t a six month knit 🙂 Cute, Soft & Fluffy. Great colour. Easy to knit Stocking Stitch.Yarn and pattern in stash… When I needed a some plain stocking stitch, as a break from other, more […]
EEk! I’ve not used my work Charity day!😲 We are strongly encouraged to use our one day a year for charity work – it’s a great idea 😍 Hmmm – what can I do? The obvious answer was the little hats for the Innocent Smoothies “The Big Knit” campaign for Age UK. I’ve blogged these […]
My brioche history is shameful. I was a coward. I procrastinated for over 2 years! March 2016, I taught myself the basics from this book…Knitting Fresh Brioche by Nancy Marchant And blogged my sample knits here, “Fun with Brioche, Burping and Barking” and fully intended to make the lovely Glen scarf by Laura Whittington , a […]
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 […]
I am very brown and very relaxed. I’ve just come back from Mauritius! The lovely Ben and I have had an eventful year, job wise and needed to lay on a beach and do nothing… Almost nothing…There was some knitting 😀 As the title suggests the journey was about 20 hours door to door so […]
