Community love

I mentioned a super podcast that I love watching – Pins and Needles 

Two lovely packages arrived from two even more lovely Instagram friends, thank you ladies, you know who you are!

WIPS and FOs

Spark of Grey Shawl by Melanie Berg knit in Kettle Yarn Co Baskerville (Dawn and Eventide colourways). Needles used – Chiaogoo 3.5mm (the ones with the bendy bit!!)

Hollows Shawl by Melody of the Mandarine’s podcast knit in Blacker Yarns Falkland 4ply (Pale Maiden colourway). Needles used – Chiaogoo Lace 4mm

Vanilla socks based on Susan B Anderson’s Smooth Operator Sock pattern knit in Norah George Yarns Gryffindor colourway and with the heel knit in West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 ply in the Poppy Seed colourway.  Needles used – Knit Pro Zings 2.5mm. No project page for this just yet.

Handbrake Cowl by Kay Jones of the Bakery Bears podcast knit in Malabrigo Rios (Jupiter colourway). Needles used – Knit Pro Zings 4.5mm. No project page for this yet either.

Box of Shame

I talked rather sheepishly about my box of socks and shawls that have been knit over the year but either need blocking or need ends weaving in. I’m not going to list everything here (there are too many!) but if you want any specific information please do let me know.

I will bring the box back to the next podcast and hopefully it will be empty!

Etsy Shop news

My last few shop updates have sold out really quickly – thank you all so much! I realise that this however means that some people miss out.  I will be popping some new bags in the shop over the next few weeks on an ‘as made’ basis and will be finishing off custom orders.

What I was wearing

Rattan Shawl by Truly Myrtle Designs knit using Yan-Tan-Tethera Yarns

And that was it. I’m hoping to podcast again before Christmas.  Until then, happy crafting xx

 

Summer of socks and a shawl

Summer of socks and a shawl

As summer leads us by the hand towards autumn I thought I would briefly share what has come off my needles in recent weeks. I have been surrounded by project bags stuffed with half finished wips for a few months so I promised myself this […]

Social media tour part 1 | Instagram

I’m writing this on a glorious sunny morning, very early, and the house is empty, it’s just me.  It’s rather lovely! Although I can’t wait for it to fill up again. Did you know I spend time in a few social media outlets? Some of […]
