Finished project – Retro dream socks

ETA: Pattern’s now live! In anticipation of the pattern launch in the next two weeks (IT’S COMING GUYS, I ACTUALLY CAN’T WAIT) I thought it was about time that I shared some pics and thoughts about a pair of socks which genuinely would not let me sleep. These socks were inspired by colour, which I…

Once upon a sock in July 2018 – no socks!

I mean, not actually no socks, because that is pretty much inconceivable. It’s not that dramatic, I finished these in June. a) I love them with all my heart, and b) they are being test knit as I type. Feeling a lot of love for my amazing test knitters right now for working on colourwork…

First up, here’s my project from last Christmas. This was an exceedingly satisfying and interesting pair of socks and…

Endpaper Mitts — January-February 2007

Oops, fell off the planet for a few weeks there. See, this is why I need to always be part of a Secret Pal swap — it forces me to update properly and on a regular basis. To be fair, I moved again a month ago and that’s always a bit life-consuming. Also we haven’t…

last weekend

This is what I achieved last weekend. Finishing the back of my Ribby Cardi. Good old stoic Ribby. It only gets used as an interim knit — picked up and worked on in between the snappy thrilling jazzy knits I can’t resist (more on that below) — and yet keeps on giving and giving. The…
