Today, I’ve been sewing up my Wilson sweater whilst enjoying the last of the sunshine.   I’m really pleased with the results. This particular design is a favourite of mine and I’m so pleased that I’m able to add it to my collection. I’ve had some issues with my model so you need to hang […]

“Wilson” – First Glimpse.

“Wilson” finally came off the needles the other day so it’s currently being blocked. While it was all stretched and gorgeous, I thought I’d take some shots for you – It may look straight forward but the stitch is what makes this garment a little bit different. The fabric is quite dense, making ir lovely […]

This Week I Have Mostly Been …

Well actually, I’ve mostly been wrapped up in blankets on a sofa while the cold my husband had been incubating, decided it had imposed on his hospitality enough and it was time for a change of scenery. Normally my body is a temple. Currently it is a holiday complex for what feels like the bacterial […]

New Projects.

The second commission is finished! Of course now the work is over, I’ve succumbed to the bacteria my husband has been incubating for the last few days. So I’m curled up on the sofa with warm blankets and being kept in tea. (Being my personal chai wallah is the least Boy can do). However, I […]

One Down, One to Go.

At the beginning of the week I finished one of my current commissions. There was much relief at finishing on time because it means I’m clear to work on the second one. I’m waiting on yarn at the moment so I can’t do anything. Next week (if the yarn arrives), it’ll be all action but […]

The First Step.

What an exciting day I’ve had. Do you recall the post I wrote about a sweater I had designed? The client was really pleased and that gave me an idea. Open a shop.selling my original designs as finished garments. After some encouragement from friends, it’s gone live. At the moment I’m busy with some outside […]

Rome Wasn’t Built in Day

This week I’ve been mostly working on a sweater for my next designer step. It’s a design that I love knitting and one that you’ve seen before. This design is called “Roman” and is one of my favourites because of the elongated stitch which gives the sweater an open texture. This works really well in […]

This morning I had a wonderful parcel in the post.  I bet you can’t guess what is in the box! I’ve been ordering yarn for my line of finished garments. Sheepfold is a wonderful shop that is committed to supplying British yarn and particularly fibre from rare breeds. I love the quality of the product […]

Sweater Design

After the teasing glances, I can share with you final images of my sweater design. I’m pleased with how it’s worked out – using a very different yarn presented me with some interesting challenges not least of all working with a different drape – but it’s given me plenty to think about. And of course […]

Something New

I’ve been working on developing some of my menswear knitting that was my Final Major Project at Uni. During my 3rd year, I used a yarn that I had created myself and which was very well retrieved by people who saw it. I’d still like to work with a yarn company to make it part […]
