FO Friday | Mini Makes

There’s been a bunch baby bits being made up here alongside my larger projects. They’ve been a welcome break to the sometimes overwhelming feeling that takes over when working on an adult garment. You know, that feeling of “Are we there yet!” I’ve made a few Fast Baby Mittens, Garter Ear Flap Hat  & some Chansons Mignons for […]

WIP Wednesday | Dark & Strong Socks

I picked up C.C. Almon’s sock book at Edinburgh Yarn festival. I love it. The pattern difficulty is measured in how many cups of coffee you need to get the brain going. Also each pattern is written for top down & toe up so either you work how you please or you get to experiment […]

FO Friday | Lots & Lots of Beyond Puerperium

I’ve recently put buttons on on the final Beyond Puerperium and the other gifted should have arrived to  fellow knitty momma to be. So it’s safe to put my BP’s on display. From top left clockwise is a 0-3m size in John Arbon Knit by Numbers KBN27, 0-3m in Drops Nepal Dark Gray, and 6-12m in Cascade Superwash Lake […]

WIP Wednesday |Blackcurrant Shawl

Hello! Long time no see eh? It’s been a busy time here but things are settling down and we’re in waiting mode for our newest family member. I’ve chipped away at my WIPs so now instead of 12 there’s only 4! That is until the Ravellenic Games start up. Of the four, I’m currently in love […]

A Pause for the Restorative Knit

Happy MondayTuesday! I hope you all had a lovely long weekend and got to spend a bit of time with your WIPs. It’s gone a bit crazy here with a couple of new volunteer roles, an impending house purchase (our 1st) and the not long now new human arrival. Less than 9 weeks to go. […]

WIP Wednesday | Growing Slowly

It feels like I’ve been working on the body of this cardi for yonks with no progress. Rationally, I know this isn’t the case. Also my tape measure insists that the centimetres are mounting up and I’m only 3-5cm away from picking up the band stitches! Because the body portion is so big and at times super […]

EYF Bound!!

Edinburgh Yarn Fest Baby!!! The excitement has totally set in. So seriously excited, I packed on Tuesday to be sure there would be enough room in my suitcase (half of it) for any and all treasures I return with. I’d like to take my cardi with me but know it’s too bulky now for travelling. While I’m […]

WIP Wednesday | A Slower Making Year

Late last year I took stock of my crochet and knit items along with my stash. It was a color stock take rather than quantity because I realized, I didn’t wear many of my makes. It’s not that they aren’t lovely, more that I (impulsively also probably yarn fumes were involved) chose yarn colors that made me […]

The difference a year makes

As I work on this wee cardigan, I stopped every so often to admire it. IT’S SO TINY!! And CUTE! I can’t wait to cuddle the little one that’s meant to go in it and it’s mum. The pattern is Puerperium by Kelly Brooker. I’m also amazed. This time last year, I could not purl […]

Friendstival Bunting

I’m super excited because we’re going camping for the first time as a couple and a wee family. The lovely manager from Sprog’s creche and her husband put together a fantastic family friendly camping festival with attendees sharing their skills. Friendstival! There will be fire making, wild foraging, basket making and a bunch of other […]
