  3. Virtual Knit Night September 30th

    It is official, I completely missed summer this year. Through out June and July we had the greyest coldest rainiest, and darkest days here in London, and what do you know, I kept getting updates from my friends in Norway about the summer of their life, 30 degrees and blistering sunshine - in NORWAY! Then off I go back home...

  4. New Yarn - John Arbon Yarnadelic

    A fun yarn has come to join our selection of yarns from John Arbon. A yarn with the love for music at its core, a yarn that takes its colour names from the very music that inspires it. That yarn is Yarnadelic. So turn up your speakers and read on. John is a big music fan with an eclectic record...

  5. Virtual Knit Night September 16th

    As many of you know, I was finally able to travel back home to see my friends and family for the first time in what feels like forever, and I am currently in Norway. What can I say, it is definitely very emotional and feels quite strange to have travelled such a distance, so to be completely honest, other than...
  6. New Project - Newspaper by Joji Locatelli

    So you take our favourite designer and pair it with our favourite yarn and what do you get? Pure magic if you ask me! The Newspaper jumper is not only stunning, it speaks to me on so many levels... Joji says about the design: I don’t like reading the news. I think I should do it more often, but some...

  7. Virtual Knit Night September 2nd - CANCELED

    UPDATE: Dear Friends. Well, turned out my knitting was not the only thing being a bit off today. And what a day! I'm not going to go into the details, except from it being a series of unfortunate events ending up with a complete public transport failure (if you're in London you know how those can occasionally happen, where everything...

  8. What Maya and George Knits! - Brioche + Mystery Shawl

    George's Brioche + Mystery Shawl I love a mystery knit-a-long. The adventure and challenge of being faced with an interesting project and the unknown. You don’t know what direction it will turn. Often they include a fun stitch or a different kind of construction you haven’t used before. I also love choosing my colours, as its all about indulging in...
  9. Virtual Knit Night August 19th

    Guess what! I actually have a finished something to show off tonight. My SOSU Brioche + Mystery Shawl is done, ends woven in, blocked and ready in all its glory. AND I've moved onto, and well into, my current project ... I am obsessing a bit, as it is stranded colour work and the rounds are so short compared to...

  11. Virtual Knit Night August 5th

    After a much needed break last week, I am back in the shop trying to get back on track, admittedly I'm still in a bit of a dozy state - going away was just so nice. Even better, my travelling by train blessed me with plenty of knitting time, and you know what? I'm so close to finishing my shawl...
