I would have, but I was terrified it was full of moth lavae. It went straight in the dustbin!
Completed Knit Report
I finished After the Rain a couple of weeks ago – Oh Wow do I love that yoke pattern! … but I only got around to doing the obligatory photo shoot today – Bad Susan! I won’t tease you – here she is… Last time I spoke to you I’d just started the yoke pattern […]
I contracted Jelly Roll fever in summer 2021. It took eight pairs of socks and a year of fun to beat my obsession with these cute little socks into remission. I still fear for the safety of my sock yarn stash. I may relapse at any time.
Once I had finished the fairisle yoke, Misurina was finished at great speed! So happy! 😍 I won’t make you wait for a photo 🙂 I am very, very pleased with her. My fears about the fairisle pattern not showing up in the cream were unfounded – I love these colours – I think the […]
“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 […]

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 […]
4 years ago I suddenly stopped blogging after 10 years of sharing my knitting exploits. I really hope I still have some followers out there! Long story, cut very short – I had a stroke – and that really messed up my knitting and ability to blog. The good news is I’m 95% recovered now […]
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 […]
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 […]
