It takes a bit of effort for me to think of new patterns so I haven’t done one for a while. I’m currently studying for a diploma in knitting (sounds like the most pointless thing ever doesn’t it lol) and I haven’t done much the last couple of weeks because I have to come up… Continue reading A bit of planning
It’s fair to say I forgot about setting myself this little challenge haha. I did remember yesterday though and I decided to work on the pink-green gradient yarn socks.

I love the feel of the wood- they are super smooth, never cold and give the perfect grip and beautiful to look at. However, they seem to… Continue reading Not again!
I was asked to make a geometric squares blanket a little while ago. After searching and mainly coming away with lots of quilting patterns I stumbled across the pattern for A New Angle by Woolly Thoughts (available through Ravelry), and I have to say I am really enjoying the effect. It’s a lovely simple pattern… Continue reading Simple Pleasures
