  1. Virtual Knit Night September 17th

    When I've not been completely immersed in everything anniversary book, last week has been spent manically knitting, but no ... it seems I've failed at test knitting again. With one sleeve left to do, the pattern I'm testing is launching tomorrow! Stay tuned for the Filigree Sweater! Now the question is, who can catch up with me? I can't wait...

    Have you seen the new shawl design from Joji Locatelli. It was popping up all over social media at the weekend and had me really intrigued. Its knit in a single strand of mohair lace with a few stripes of a 4ply. I'm really excited to see single stranded mohair projects. So often it's doubled up, but here it has...

  6. Virtual Knit Night September 3rd

    There was this shift in the weather this week, in just a few days we went from proper hot to quite chilly. I don't feel like this was a smooth transition, almost like we just missed 'late summer' and went straight into fall. I do miss these longer chillier evenings though, they usually provide heaps of knitting time - the...

  10. Time for a New Project - Pianta Hat by Lavanya Patricella

    It's starting to feel a little Autumnal here in London. As I gaze out of the window grey clouds hang overhead and spots of rain appear now and again. The height of summer with its 30°C+ heat is slowly fading away. This is a glorious time to be a knitter as we can start to fantasise about all the woolly...

  11. Virtual Knit Night August 20th

    How did this happen, how did I go from being monogamous to having four projects on the go? I'm currently doing a test knit for a dear friend of mine, which involves lace too complicated to work on at tonight's knit night, so I might just finish a sleeve on another project instead. Hope to see you there! The details...
