  1. FO Friday - Stay Soft Shawl

    We're at the Unravel Festival and I'm literarily blocking my new jumper on the hotel room floor, hoping for it to dry so it can be shown off at the opening next day. We're exhausted after set up, we've had our hearty dinner, and we're ready to crawl into bed for some evening knitting. George is knitting away on his...

  5. WIP Wednesday – Blocking and Swatching

    This WIP Wednesday I am going to talk a little bit about blocking and swatching. I recently saw on a friend and colleague of ours Natalie Selles' (@leeleetea) instagram stories about how she was struggling to work out her gauge over a large area of cabled and textured stitches. Even though she had swatched for the project. She wasn't getting...

    Yes I have a FO (Finished Object)! I skipped my WIP Wednesday post this week to put some energy into finishing them.

  9. WIP Wednesday – Roland Jumper

    Carrying on from last weeks WIP Wednesday post I am revisiting my old WIPs and starting by exploring the yarns used. Hopefully with the aim that I will reignite my passion for them and start posting some FO (finished object) Friday posts! I feel really guilty about this poor forgotten jumper. The reason I stopped is because it was coming...

  12. WIP Wednesday - Festoon Socks

    The luxury of time has made me revisit some old WIPs (work in progress), that have sadly been left forgotten. For no reason whatsoever the lure of a new project has left these poor things unloved. So with this series I am starting a WIP Wednesday and I'm encouraging everybody to shine a light on some old projects, hopefully turning...
