  1. Fibre Foraging with Maya and Tuva

    Sometimes, as a knitter, you discover a design that just knocks the air out of you. Nothing else matters, you just have to get it onto your needles as quickly as you can.

  3. Last Minute Knit Gifts (and crochet too ...)

    Every single year this happens to me ... I start in April going 'This year I will be prepared, I'll finish what I'm working on and then I'll start doing my Christmas gifts - I know exactly what to make for ... everyone!' Then fast forward, before I know it it's November, and I still haven't started. Many a cast-on...

  6. All Things Marled

    Writing the blog post about the new Chimera we have in the shop has got me excited about marling and marled yarns. I cast on with some Chimera straight away and loving knitting it up. Marled yarns are fun to knit with and unlike speckled or variegated yarn they play with colour in their own unique way. I thought I...

  7. Virtual Knit Night November 10th

    Sometimes, no matter what an organising mastermind you are, things don't work at plan. And today is such a day for me. I am supposed to be on a plane going to Norway tonight, and there are full on strikes happening across the public transport network in London. To be able to get to the airport I've had to be...
