Seeing Double

As you know, I’ve been working on a double knitting piece. This is the drawing that inspired it – There is a theme of spirals (I know. Shocking isn’t it. Me and spirals who’d have thought?!) and is an idea I’ve had in my head for a while. Now I’ve got the space to draw […]

A Day Off

The current samples have been sent to the studio and the latest commission was popped in the post this morning. I ran some errands and sent off some emails to tidy up some loose ends. With this natural break in work, I’ve decided to take the rest of the day and tomorrow off. Of course […]

Will I Ever Learn

My husband jokes that I don’t have a work ethic. I just don’t have a stop button. He may have a point. We’re house sitting for his mum at the moment. Whilst she’s away I offered to do some gardening. As you know she’s  moved and inherited a garden that, whilst is not a jungle, […]

One Stash, Two Stash, Lace Weight, Sock.

The other day I made a rather flippant comment on Twitter that generated quite an interesting debate. The question I asked was Is it wrong i have 2 stashes? First of all, I feel this needs a little qualification. I have a stash for work and a stash for my own personal knitting. There is […]
