Holiday

The past few weeks have been a patchwork of working really hard and relaxing in different places. Part of my set-up practice for Popup Wool Show shows the different colour yarns I will have with me for Nos Da kits and also the gorgeous colours of laceweight available for my various lace designs, including DriftingContinue reading “Holiday”

The Kits Are Alright!

The past few days have been mostly about prepping for the Pop-Up Wool Show at Hulme Hall in Port Sunlight on August 20th. I’ve been checking my stocks of kits, gift tag sets, patterns etc and making lots and lots of lists! I’m quite proud of my kits. They all come with a cotton projectContinue reading “The Kits Are Alright!”

Back on Track

So, after last week’s own goal of knitting from the wrong chart, I’m all sorted again. The correct chart has been completed and blocked (and I’m so glad I bothered!) and I’m halfway through one of the other new charts in the Nevern Throw Expansion Pack. Yes, I really do use that many pins whenContinue reading “Back on Track”

Here Comes Summer

Designing for external publications has quite a long lead time. Even more so when it’s for a book rather than a monthly magazine. Last month I was able to share with you my excitement about my Ceridwen wrap being on the front cover of The Knitter issue 176. *This* month I am finally able toContinue reading “Here Comes Summer”

Be Careful What You Wish For

Yesterday afternoon I was bemoaning the fact that I had a dentist appointment for one (maybe two) fillings this morning. One was the large molar I broke back in February, the other an upper tooth with fractures that were discovered during an X-ray at my last appointment. I didn’t want to go to the dentistContinue reading “Be Careful What You Wish For”

Silent Night

Last Sunday was Advent Sunday, so we put the Christmas tree up and decorated it. It took a little bit longer this year (maybe we’re a bit older?), but it was good. A couple of hours after we had finished, the power went out. Storm Arwen did most of her damage on Friday night inContinue reading “Silent Night”

The Hills are Alive

My plan to weave in a section of yarn ends on my advent sweater (Serenity by Joji Locatelli) each day worked a treat. I seriously underestimated how many there were; I’d forgotten that as I had worked each colour from the top over the back and each side of the front, several colours had sixContinue reading “The Hills are Alive”

Behind the Screen

The past few days have been somewhat heavy on computer work with understandably less time available for engaging in the fibre side of fibre arts. I have finished updating the layout of my website! I am so much happier with how it looks now and each pattern and kit has its own page rather thanContinue reading “Behind the Screen”
