  2. What Maya Knits - Take Stock

    After a really long winter, it honestly feels like we skipped spring all together, the summer heat has finally arrived to London. This is the time of year where I will gather all my 'woollies' give them a good rinse, a new blocking, and zip them up to be locked away for hot summer days and the dreaded moth season...

  3. What George Knits - The Longfellow Cardigan

    I never was into cardigans until I knit the Playdate in 2016. I love that cardigan and have worn it non stop ever since. So I think its high time that I knitted a new one. Not wanting to knit the same pattern again I came across the Longfellow by Michele Wang (Ravelry link). This simple cardigan is very similar...

  7. 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...

  8. Yarn Pairings for Embody

    Embody is not only a knitting book, but also has sewing patterns. This interesting combination was put together by Jacqueline Cieslak using both her knitting and sewing expertise. The ethos behind this collection was to empower makers to create clothes that honour their bodies. Embody consists of three infinitely adaptable patterns — two knitting, one sewing — with bespoke instructions...
