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 […]
“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 […]

Just a quickie post to show you a “silly” I made for a colleague at work. He was having a huge fancy dress party for the Eurovision Song Contest and was dressing up as Agnetha from Abba (the blond one) He was missing a “Fabulous!”crochet cloche hat (complete with flower on the side) to complete […]
