The next projects I made using the new Addi Express Kingsize were a few hats. You can make a hat from casting on to wearing it in about 30 minutes from start to finish! I had a couple of balls of Sirdar Jewelspun Aran left from knitting blankets in the autumn of 2022, so I[Read More ..read more

A matching set comprising a cowl, hat, and fingerless mitts that I knitted for my niece as a gift. I’ve realised revisiting a beloved pattern and combining three disparate patterns to create a cohesive set is fun.

This is my first hand-woven scarf, and I am rather pleased. It wasn’t my first time weaving. I used to weave samples on a larger loom at university long ago. I used the Ashford New Zealand wool ball that came with my loom as the warp—a lovely forest green colour. I used three balls of[Read More ..read more

Baldric is a sweater designed by Isabell Kraemer. Baldric is a top-down construction, worked seamlessly in rounds. I used German short rows at the back to shape the neck for a more comfortable fit. However, I still find that it is a bit lower in the neckline than I like in an aran weight sweater.[Read More ..read more

One of my favourite sweaters that I’ve knit is Tegna designed by Caitlin Hunter. I also think that it is one of the most flattering sweaters that I have knit. It is definitely, my sweater of choice when I want to look great but be comfortable as well! I knit the 2XL size. This was ..read more
