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”

Let’s start (again) from the very beginning…

At the weekend I had one of those moments that most knitters have had at some point. I’d completed something, washed and blocked it, photographed it and THEN I noticed an error. If this was just going to be a thing for me it wouldn’t have mattered so much, but it is a sample ofContinue reading “Let’s start (again) from the very beginning…”

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”

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”

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?”

Snow in April

My Little Orme Hat is done! Hurrah 🥳 While I write this it’s freezing outside (what a change from the 20 degrees of last week) and there was snow and ice on the ground this morning. So, although it’s April, it doesn’t feel inappropriate that I will be releasing a hat pattern on Friday. NewsletterContinue reading “Snow in April”

Mama said there’ll be days like this

Have you ever had one of those days? You know the ones; you get a notification about a new version of an app so you switch to it, only to find it’s taking much longer than the old version and doing something basic (like replying to an email) doesn’t seem to work? I’m looking atContinue reading “Mama said there’ll be days like this”

It was red and yellow and green and brown and…

This has been a very visually stimulating week for me, so I hope you won’t mind a rather picture filled blog post. A friend I used to work with in a former life send me a cryptic message a couple of weeks ago: “Look out for a parcel in the post”. I had no ideaContinue reading “It was red and yellow and green and brown and…”
