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”

Organised Chaos!

Today has been good – despite the apparent chaos of my desk! I got an email this morning that made me VERY excited and I can’t wait to share the news with you – soon I hope! Also, after several days pondering the front neck shaping and the armhole depth on my current sweater designContinue reading “Organised Chaos!”

Waiting for the Phone

I should have saved last week’s blog post title (A Little Fall of Rain) for today. We were going to have a day trip to Prestatyn and have lunch on the beach. Except it’s been raining. All day. Fingers crossed for drier weather in the next few days. 🤞 Today’s title is just as fittingContinue reading “Waiting for the Phone”

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”

Wrapped in Wool

I seem to be increasingly busy lately and I can’t work out whether it’s entirely due to my increased efforts to make my small, one-woman business successful or partly a way of keeping myself away from the news. There are more deadlines certainly – I’ve been submitting designs to publications more frequently and am beingContinue reading “Wrapped in Wool”

Just Because I’m a Woman

Today is International Women’s Day. A good day to celebrate not only the famous women we admire, but also the real life women in our daily lives. The ones who inspire us, impress us, love us and live with us. The theme for International Women’s Day this year is “Break the Bias!” – the linkContinue reading “Just Because I’m a Woman”

Tread Softly

Today’s blog post title continues the tradition of using song titles for my posts, but it’s also the opening of the final line of the poem (He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven by W B Yeats) that Of Night and Light is named after; “Tread softly because you tread on my dreams”. This seemsContinue reading “Tread Softly”

Join In

Just over two years ago I created my Facebook group – Kath Andrews Designs group. I wanted it to be a place where knitters could share their projects, talk about yarn and generally hang out. The group description reads: This group is for people to share projects, ideas and top tips or just enjoy picsContinue reading “Join In”
