  4. Virtual Knit Night June 9th

    Yay! I've finished my jumper! Well almost, I still need to weave in the ends and block it, so my dilemma for tonight is - do I spend the evening weaving in ends or do I cast on for my next project... The thing is, I'm going on holiday next week, and every holiday warrants a holiday project, so lately...
  5. Summer Knits

    Summer is here and as the temperatures are rising so is my urge to cast on something new. I'm dreaming up lightweight, cool against hot skin, quick knits that can be finished before the season has passed. Temperatures and knitting urges are sadly not the only thing rising these days, the cost of living has reached new levels, and even...

  8. Virtual Knit Night May 12th

    Sometimes time moves really slowly, but then suddenly everything moves so so fast! For me these last few weeks have been like that, so fast I'm still trying to wrap my head around and digest what happened. We had our first in store event, which was a such a joy still a reminder on how long ago we did that...

  12. Virtual Knit Night April 14th

    Another month since our last meet up and I have to admit, my days as a monogamous knitter are over! To be honest, I'm not sure if I've ever been one, but with the whole 'get-organised-tidy-house-tidy-mind-social-media-mindfulness-coaching'-thing that happened over the lock down years I think I might have had a phase. But yes, I am back to my messy self...
