Rounding Up

Last week I promised a round-up of the Calon Cariad shawls, didn’t I? Well, I’ve had a scour through the images posted in my Facebook group, posted on Instagram with the hashtag or sent to me and this is a good mix! I know for certain that Anne’s (top left) is finished, but I don’tContinue reading “Rounding Up”

Cover Story

If you saw my newsletter yesterday, you will have seen that it is ten years (almost – it was June 2012) since my first pattern was published in a magazine and it made the front cover. That was Knit Now, Issue 11, with New York Nights. On Thursday 12th May, the Issue 176 of TheContinue reading “Cover Story”

Have You Any Wool?

Oh yes! If you follow me on social media (Twitter, Instagram or Facebook), you will have seen my post yesterday explaining that this week’s blog post would be delayed a day. If you’ve been waiting and didn’t know, I’m sorry. It will be worth the wait though, promise! On Sunday I went to Wonderwool atContinue reading “Have You Any Wool?”

A Little Fall of Rain

This week has flown past – I can hardly believe I’m writing another blog post already! The main image of today’s post is the Helmet hat I made for Sue from my hand spun yarn, the pattern coming from Woolly Wormhead‘s Introspection collection. I realised I hadn’t taken a photo of her wearing it sinceContinue reading “A Little Fall of Rain”

The Heart of Love

Calon Cariad is Welsh for ‘the heart of love’. This Friday is the Show & Tell Zoom for our Calon Cariad Knit-along! It seems to have come around really quickly, even though I moved this final event back a week. There are prizes for contributions on social media and anyone who has completed their shawlContinue reading “The Heart of Love”

I’ve Got My Eye On You

So, I’m back at Mum’s for a few days and she is home from her two week ‘adventure’. Cleo the cat was pleased to see me yesterday and even graced me with her presence on my lap twice this morning! She and Mum were very glad to see each other again today as well andContinue reading “I’ve Got My Eye On You”

Mysterious Girl

Last week I met someone in the main car park of my little town and exchanged two jars of homemade preserves (blackcurrant jam and seville marmalade) for a large and very full black bin liner. It sounds very mysterious, doesn’t it? The bag has since been sitting in my study as the other parts ofContinue reading “Mysterious Girl”

Tea and Toast

Well, this week has seen me doing a lot of knitting and there’s so much of it that I can’t show you! The next MKAL with Yarn O’clock is developing well and I’ve been working on a swatch for a new submission (which I’m tentatively quite excited about). I can, however, show you the finishedContinue reading “Tea and Toast”

We Are Family

The past few days have seen my lovely wife and I take a road trip to Kent. Although it had been 8 months since I had seen my mum, it was 9 months for her and 17 since I’d been there! It was glorious weather and we made the most of it, taking a walkContinue reading “We Are Family”

What’s New Pussycat?

Following last week’s excitement of getting the Little Orme Hat pattern and The Little Orme Collection out into the world (and photographed at the Little Orme, too!), there has been a real change of activity in the past couple of days. I’ve done lots of knitting on my garment commission and I *so* wish IContinue reading “What’s New Pussycat?”
