All At Once

It’s one of those week’s where everything is happening at once and some of them are coming to fruition after quite a while! I’m on the final flag of my Safe Space cross stitch! Once that is complete I shall do the final bit of cross stitch (the word “Welcome” in the middle), then crackContinue reading “All At Once”

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”

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?”

Showtime!

We did it! The PopUp Wool Show on Saturday was definitely a success. The organisers were great and there were even some people on hand to help haul heavy things up the steps when we arrived. I am incredibly grateful to Sue for being such an amazing assistant – and for bringing all the stuffContinue reading “Showtime!”

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”
