Pause for Breath

Yesterday I helped move my mother-in-law into her new home. As you can imagine, it was a long day but it flew by and we achieved an awful lot. I returned to my home yesterday evening after almost 3 weeks away, exhausted. Thanks to my amazing husband who plied me with beer and pizza and […]

Bite Size Pieces

The packing continues apace and time for sample knitting has been challenging. I’ve been working on a different idea which combines elements not normally put together. As such it’s taking a bit of working out and since the way I work things out is by doing them and problem solving as needed, this can be […]

Essential Desert Islands

Whilst I’ve been helping my mother-in-law pack up her house, I’ve only been able to work on sample knitting. However, I can read about knitting. I read 2 blog posts within only a few hours of each other but that covered the same topic. What are the must have tools for knitting? The first was […]

A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by the very talented Sarah Cross. Some of the questions really made me think but it was really good fun. She asked me about how I got started as a knitwear designer and about my plans for the future. If you want to read about what my dream […]

Moving Mania

It’s manic here at the moment. The same day I signed my studio contract, my mother-in-law rang to let me know that the sale of her house has been agreed and that she needs to move by the 29th. Of this month. She has somewhere to move to and it’s vacant which makes life easier […]

What a Difference a Day Makes (Part 2)

Last time was all doom and gloom and woah is me! Then a very exciting thing happened yesterday. I signed a contract for a new studio space! Triskele Designs is moving! I applied for a space a couple of months ago and then forgot about it. I didn’t get an outright “No” so assumed I […]

What a Difference a Day Makes

Yesterday was quite the disastrous knitting day. No one died so, in the grand scheme of things, it could have been a lot worse but it felt pretty bad. First this weeks sample. Where to start? Well the first sample just didn’t quite work. The mechanics are great but the way it was being executed […]

Summer Skies

This week is proving to be tiresome. The sample I’d planned to knit isn’t working out so it’s been frogged and this morning I’m going to start a different one. I thought I’d knit a sock this week too (an old design that’s almost ready for publishing) which is normally possible but in a working […]

Something Floral

I’ve finished all my jobs for the week and am looking forward to a whole day off tomorrow. I’ve got to do some small jobs for … well that’s news that can wait a little while longer yet, but tomorrow I will be knitting for my friend’s wedding. Remember I told you she asked me […]

Handsome and Rugged

This week I’ve started work on anew sweater for the shop. This is going to be a “Fraser” with the yarn coming from the fabulous Sheepfold. The yarn is a Black Leicester Longwool in a grey colour. I love how there are shades of grey within this yarn making it more mottled without being a […]
