Grain Sweater

I feel like I start almost every blog post with this phrase: This has to be one of my favourite makes, ever! As in, did I actually just make that? Also known as true love. This jumper has been a delight to knit, has expanded my knitting skills, and I just utterly love the finished…

Ursa Ursa

I can’t quite remember where this idea came from, but in mid-March I wrote in a letter to a friend “we should have a knit-a-long during Lockdown”. She loved the idea, logged onto Ravelry and found a pattern that we’d both favourited – the Ursa Sweater by Jacqueline Cieslak. We decided to extend the KAL…

Nova Jumper

I am sure that I am not the only one that is feeling the need for more ‘comfort’ clothing during Lockdown. I have to admit that I have been drawn towards my elasticated waistbands (pietra shorts, culottes) and no waist-banded items of clothing (peppermint jumpsuit) and feeling much better for the relaxed dress code.

Panther Pants and Yoga Jumper

My love of the Avery Leggings cannot be overstated. After the success of my greys, I knew I wanted to make another pair for Scapa FestĀ at the beginnning of May. I also knew from previous experience that the festival could be cold and layers were important! Enter Burda Sweatshirt 022019 #111A. I first saw this…

Antlers

My second bottom-up cardigan, this has had a very heavy rotation this winter. As in, never-off-my-back rotation. It’s knitted from incredibly warm Hebridean wool, which is a natural black – so soft, almost dark brown, with the occasional white hairs. It’s a wee bit itchy, but that’s a price worth paying for something that is…

Cropped Cardigan

Way back in July 2017 I decided to recreate a cardigan that I had had and loved as a student. I found it immensely useful, and wore it often. Now, I cannot remember what happened to it, but I definitely wanted another version. The cardigan in question was tight fitting, cropped and very simple. It…
