  1. What Maya Knits - Take Stock

    After a really long winter, it honestly feels like we skipped spring all together, the summer heat has finally arrived to London. This is the time of year where I will gather all my 'woollies' give them a good rinse, a new blocking, and zip them up to be locked away for hot summer days and the dreaded moth season...

  2. Inspiration and Kits for Sea Mist Shawl by George Cullen

    I am really excited to be part of Laine Issue 11. My design Sea Mist appears in the issue next to some other gorgeous designs by some talented designers.

  3. Inspiration and Kits for Scout Shawl by Florence Spurling

    What is this dreamy colourwork shawl that has captured everyones imaginations? Well it's the Scout Shawl by Florence Spurling. This shawl is colourwork heaven!

Geometrics, zig-zags and flower forms are knit in a...

  4. Story Time - Hoddmime's Forest

    In Norse mythology Ragnarok is when the humans and gods collide in conflict and despair. It is the end of the world, in fire and battle, and almost all gods and humans die. The description of the end times does not sound great, there will be a winter lasting for several years, kinsfolk and friends will be slaying each other...

  5. What Maya Knits - KORO KORO Shawl

    As the pandemic spread and London went into lock-down, I went into melting mode. Turning to my knitting for comfort, none of my ongoing projects gave the nurture or the calm I was looking for. Maybe this is because they were newly started summer projects, in thinner yarns and airy stitches, neither carried the promise of what I needed the...

  6. 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...

  7. What Maya Knits - Eifelgold Shawl

    “I'm not a shawls person” is clearly a lie I've been telling myself forever. After making a humongous DK weight shawl a couple of years back (the Askews Me! by Stephen West) and having worn it constantly since then, maybe not through the worst summer heat wave, but other than that every single day is like … I can feel...
