Yesterday was a great day at work. I’m still cracking through with samples, (I’ve done nearly 5 weeks work in about 2) but I also came to some realisations. The most important one being that I don’t like “Hetherington”. Don’t get me wrong. I love the man it’s named for – he’s soon to be […]

Time Management

Yesterday we went to the cinema to see Maleficent. It was fantastic and as we sat there, my brain started to fizz with ideas and patterns. The previous evening we’d been at a BBQ at my friend Lucy’s house. She’s a fellow knitter and she was showing me yarn combinations exclaiming she didn’t know what […]

Physician. Knit Thyself.

Today was my first day back at work but I finished early – after all it is a Bank Holiday. The problem I had was that all my knitting had turned to “meh”. There was nothing I felt like knitting. I’ve spent part of my 2 week “holiday” working on either sock blankie or my […]

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 […]

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 […]

Start The Week

As you may know, I’m working with a new system at the moment. I select tasks I must do by the end of the week and then build a timetable around it. So far it’s been really successful. I have a proper work day with a lunch and finishing time and everything. I have evenings […]

New Additions.

This week of tasks is drawing to a close and I’m making good progress in both the sample studio work and the shop. The 3rd sample for this month is finished and has been added to the blocking pile. I know I’ve mentioned this already this month, but I really am pleased with the sample […]

Smock My Knit Up

Would you like to see my latest knitting experiment that I’m a bit in love with? This is smocking which is a texture I’ve not worked with before. I used a viscose/silk ribbon which makes for a shiny yarn and also gives it a gorgeous drape. I love the art deco feel this has. It’s […]

This Week I’ve Been …

Work continues here apace. It’s so nice to feel productive and no time is wasted. My “other job” was cancelled on Monday due to illness, so I cracked on with shop jobs. I’ve got a sweater all finished and ready to add to the shop, I just need to take photos of it. And yes, […]

A Few of My Favourite Things.

I’m still working on studio samples and alongside those, I’ve been folding more paper. It’s really interesting how these folds are inspiring me and they are certainly helping to push the sample work forward. I’ve spent the morning working with folded paper – taking photos and making sketches to record the way the creases interact […]
