  1. Virtual Knit Night May 13th

    I'm in between projects, or that is, I have secured my steeks, and there is no way I'll be making the first cut without George mentally holding my hand, so that will just have to wait until over the weekend. Meaning, I'm in between. Oh the struggles, what to do? Either I continue on my unfinished projects pile and work...

  2. Inspiration and Kits for Sea Mist Shawl by George Cullen

    I am really excited to be part of Laine Issue 11. My design Sea Mist appears in the issue next to some other gorgeous designs by some talented designers. My inspiration for the shawl was from trips to the Cornish coast where me and my boyfriend have spent many holidays. We like to walk the coast path and enjoy being...

  3. Virtual Knit Night May 6th

    The body of my colourwork cardigan is done, and I'm about to do steeking for the first time. I've been debating whether or not to use a sewing machine to secure my steaks before making the first cut, but something in me didn't sit comfortable with the thought of non-stretchy cotton thread and elastic knitting, so I did a bit...

  7. Virtual Knit Night April 29th

    Stock take - check, Accounting - check, VAT return - check, new yarns up online - check, instagram and blog post done - check!

  8. Story Time - Hoddmime's Forest

    In Norse mythology Ragnarok is when the humans and gods collide in conflict and despair. It is the end of the world, in fire and battle, and almost all gods and humans die. The description of the end times does not sound great, there will be a winter lasting for several years, kinsfolk and friends will be slaying each other...

  10. Virtual Knit Night April 22nd

    We are still working with reduced staffing in the shop to maintain social distancing, meaning that Thursdays are my 'work from home' days. I try to get most admin done of those days, so it means quite a few hours spent staring at the screen. Spred sheets, documents, plans, endless amounts of sentences and numbers. But on Thursday evenings my...

  11. What Maya Knits - Filigree Sweater by Julie Knits in Paris

    There is this saying I've kept coming back to throughout my adult life, which goes something like 'if it ain't broken, don't fix it.' the saying originates from Punk culture and the DIY movement, it is about sustainability, and a reflection on why 'replacing' and 'adding to' is quite symptomatic of our current culture. But I seem to be adding...

  12. Virtual Knit Night April 15th

    My shop is open! After a couple of very intense weeks of sorting, organising, tidying and re-stocking, and finally my shop no longer looks like a warehouse, gone are all the boxes and my shelves are once more bursting with colours. What a transformation, and what joy. This Monday we were finally able to open the doors and welcome our...
