  1. Let's talk about: Aleks Byrd

    With just a couple more sleeps until the iKnit7 Hilja Mitts KAL kicks off with our grand Cast On Party, what better occasion for me to tell you more about the Wonder Woman behind the Hilja Mitts (and my dear friend) Aleks Byrd. Now don't go ahead and think that I shower everyone with superlatives like this, when I say...

  2. Time for a New Project - Pantone 2021 Colour of the Year Inspirations

    I was checking out the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2021 and this year they have chosen two colours. PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. So I thought I would use these as inspiration for potential new projects. I wonder if we will see a lot of 'grellow' this year, let this blog post point you in...

  3. Virtual Knit Night January 14th

    In my KWA newsletter today I wrote about being isolated and apart, still not being alone - I truly believe that our community and most definitely our weekly knit nights play a big part in maintaining this within me, and I hope the same goes for you. Lets hang out together tonight! The details are the same as always, we...

  5. Virtual Knit Night January 7th

    The holiday for me was all about embracing your mistakes, as I mindlessly knitted away I made so many of them. This week is about finding focus, and after ripping back rows and rows, my project is back on track. Just in time for our first virtual of the year, I hope to see you tonight! The details are the...

  6. Our anniversary collection – A Year Long Knit-a-Long

    As we're sweeping 2020 out of the door (good riddance) we've had a chance to reflect on the year that has passed. A year that brought so much we didn't ask for and took away so much we didn't expect, still it was the year that our humble little corner of the knitting world celebrated 10 years in existence. And...

  7. Virtual Knit Night December 17th

    Oh you know I've been a good girl this year, monogamously, admittedly quite boringly, not necessarily enthusiastically and hence painfully slow, but yes, I've been working on all those unfinished projects I had gathered throughout the previous few years. Last knit night we saluted one of those projects, one of the greatest hurdles, to be honest it is a miracle...

  8. Virtual Knit Night December 10th

    When we started our regular virtuals mid-March a consistent theme was what to knit next, facing world wide lockdowns and collective fear, not exactly knowing what this was all about, as crafters at least the extra time at home gave promises of activity, and we all had ambitious ideas about completing one project after the other. My poncho, a project...

    The Autumn/Winter Issue of Amirisu is here, with 12 elegantly simple but classic designs. This issue is titled 'From Land to Needles' and explores the yarns sources and traces it back to the natural fibres we use.

  11. I'm thinking about hats (again)

    I think it must have something to do with the change of seasons and the nights drawing in. There is a chill in the air, the weather is miserable. But it's this time of year I start to think about knitting myself a new hat. Hats are fun to knit. Unlike some more ambitious projects it's a realistic expectation to...

  12. One Cool Wool, Two Cool Wool, Three Cool Wool, Four!

    One of the most regular questions I get asked is 'How many balls of Cool Wool do I need for a scarf'? Cool Wool is a chunky 100% Peruvian wool we have just started stocking. It comes in a wild range of fun colours and it is the perfect beginners yarn. Being chunky it knits on 10-12mm needles, which makes...
