Last week I made the decision to not cast on a new sweater in May. The excitement of casting on with reckless abandon, has taken a pause… but only for May! I currently have 3 sweater/cardigan WIPs, and I feel as though that is the most I can cope with at one time. I’ve been ..read more

We have begun the third month of the year, which means I’ve cast-on for yet another jumper! Both January and February jumpers are still incomplete, but I’m enjoying them both thoroughly. I have reached the point in my painting bricks sweater (February), where I actually love it! I was having serious doubts about this one ..read more

When I began the ‘fun’ colour work part of my Painting Bricks sweater last week, I suddenly got ‘Coogi’ jumper vibes, and not in a good way. If you’re not familiar with Coogi take a look here. Believe it or not, Coogi is still around but I don’t think they have any retail stores, at ..read more

I’ve begun my Paul Klee sweater by Midori Hirose this week, and the yoke is flying along, I’m obsessed. Just one more colour, just one more chip. (I don’t even like potato chips all that much) Whilst I am working from the limitations of the 24 colour palette of Kate Davies, Milarrochy Tweed (compared to ..read more

Happy New Year! I love a fresh new year, planning and goal setting are my favourite things to do as a maker; and it makes perfect sense to do that on the first day of the year. But before I go ahead, I wanted to share the completed hedgehog ornament with CA and you all ..read more

With just two days to the New Year, my Amina sweater is FINALLY finished. This would have to be the longest time it’s taken me to knit a single jumper, having cast on for it in June. So for someone who likes completing things on a regular basis, this was torture. Am I happy with ..read more

Last weekend I took a class in Machine Knitting! I’ve been a hand knitter since childhood, but I’ve never had a chance to try out knitting on a machine. Growing up, mum had a knitting machine, it was a ‘punch card’ one, I can tell she was pretty proud of it. None of the kids ..read more
