  1. 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...

  2. Deck the Halls!

    I'm seeing seasonal decorations popping up all over the place. Christmas has arrived. I don't know about you but I love to knit little Christmas decorations and every year have knitted a bauble or two. So I had great fun researching for this blog post. Read on and discover some inspiring ways to decorate your home this festive season. Please...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  6. Yarn Pairings for Amirisu Issue 21

    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.

  7. Virtual Knit Night December 3rd

    It is a grey heavy day and absolutely freezing in ol' London Town today, and I can't come up with any better idea than to curl up for a cozy warm knit night tonight (yes, definitely metaphorically speaking about our wonderful atmosphere here ... ). My poncho is getting close to finish and will keep my lap warm while knitting...

  8. 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...

The details are the same as always, we are on from 7pm to 8.30pm UK time, you'll find the link to join at the bottom of...

  10. 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...
