Turning The Lights On

It’s just turned 4pm, I need the main light on to see what I’m doing and it’s getting really foggy outside. This morning there was bright sunshine and a pale blue sky as I walked up to town for an appointment. For myself, I’m glad the fog waited until now, but I’m sure those drivingContinue reading “Turning The Lights On”

Something New

These beautiful stitch markers arrived today. The postman was a little concerned as the corner of the box was a bit squashed and water damaged, but I checked and everything inside was untouched! They are made by Yarnistry and they are super – I highly recommend having a look at her Etsy shop. There areContinue reading “Something New”

Roses in November

“Another unseasonable season” – a line from the song Roses in November by Tret Fure on her album Roses in November. The song is from 2018, but it sounds very current. We do have roses still – and having deadheaded the rose bushes last week some flower buds are getting ready to burst. It’s aContinue reading “Roses in November”

Slowly Does It

I’ve done three hours of knitting today and I can’t show it to you (it’s for the next MKAL!), but there are some other things making some (albeit slow) progress that I can share with you. Over the past couple of days I’ve made my first sourdough loaf in quite a while. The dough wasContinue reading “Slowly Does It”

Finishing the Hat

It’s dark outside and has been for a while now – the rain and wild windiness that was promised for our part of North Wales arrived with a vengeance. Fortunately the rain part of it didn’t really get going until I had finished driving back from Mum’s (although the wind on the M54 and A5Continue reading “Finishing the Hat”

Home again, home again

Market (and retreat) are done. The Knit-Tea Retreat at Insole Court in Llandaff, Cardiff, was wonderful. The organisers, ZoĆ« and Jennie, were so kind and helpful (and organised!) and the attendees were such a great bunch of people that it made the weekend feel like a real pleasure even though I was working. It doesn’tContinue reading “Home again, home again”

Antici…pation!

I’ve got to that stage of preparing for an event where I’m both excited and impatient for it to start whilst also wanting just that extra bit of time to go over everything once more. I’m talking about The Knit-Tea Retreat happening this weekend at Insole Court, Llandaff, Cardiff. I’ll be teaching two workshops onContinue reading “Antici…pation!”

Blue

Many of the things I’m making seem to be blue at the minute! But then it always was my favourite colour, even when I was little. The Nevern Throw Expansion Pack is nearly there. I’ve joined as much of it together as I can until I get back home to where the final square isContinue reading “Blue”

Did You Miss Me?

I’m a day late! Sorry, folks. It’s been a *really* busy couple of days – including at least six hours on the road – and I didn’t plan ahead very well to get my post drafted in advance. The image at the top of this post is part of my Leaf & Vine Cardigan, publishedContinue reading “Did You Miss Me?”

Yarndale!

Last weekend at Yarndale was great fun and I had a lovely time hanging out on the RiverKnits stand with Becci and Markus (and Bryn). I was very lucky that, as well as it being the launch of Agnes and Tiffany (the two new shawls), they had also invited me to bring some of myContinue reading “Yarndale!”
