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 […]
Rowan have been doing a Knitalong for Martin Storey’s Midwinter Blanket. (You need to sign up but the pattern, videos etc are free) This is the pattern pic of the blanket, made up of separately knitted fair isle squares in Rowan Felted Tweed… This immediately appealed to me – partly because of the potential to […]
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 […]
Lucky me – it’s been a week of green gifts – knitterly and otherwise 😀
Friday was was a day of SEX at Unravel Autumn yarn festival at Farnham Maltings. (That’s a “Stash Enhancement eXercise” – nothing smutty!)

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 […]
I have a gadget that has made Misurina so much easier. Thrown in my bag at unravel with the thought, “Not seen that before, for £3.75 I’ll risk giving it a try”. The KnitPro Swivel Cable! I usually knit in the round on KnitPro Nova needles (The silvery metal ones)and occasionally Symphonie. For very small […]
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 😉 )
