A Tangle of Cables

The second commission is now off the needles. I finished it last night but had to wait for some decent daylight in order to take some photos.

Cables Galore!

I’ve been working on a commission for the last week or two. I sometimes knit for Eribe Knitwear and a couple of weeks ago, they asked if I’d knit some scarves for them. Lovely chunky yarn is perfect for this chilly weather so I’ve been in heaven. Yes it’s work but I can still enjoy […]

Revealing All.

Do you remember back in March I was working on a commission? The other day the designer, the rather fabulous Jane Bowler, sent me images of the work I did for her and has given permission for me to post here. It was a really interesting garment to knit since I’d never worked with the […]

I’ve been a very busy girl, working on a commission. As you know this is sensitive work since I don’t actually own the piece. It makes talking about it quite challenging. How can I show you something that’s taking up most of my waking moments without compromising the design? The first image shows the play […]
