Black Coffee update: Coffee and a slice of humble pie

Okay, I’m sorry Black Coffee tunic. It was out of line for me to gripe so noisily about the length of your collar. I believed I described it as a load of codswollop-sprinkled bullshit that I should have to knit for nine inches. And I was right, but my anger was misdirected. Next time I […]

So close you can smell the beans

Black Coffee Tunic: the fans want to know. What happened to it? Where is it? Are the rumours about it and Anthony Bourdain true? The truth is much less exciting than the tabloids would have us believe, but ultimately more satisfying. Black Coffee Tunic is very very close to being done, as in finished, as […]

Then I stopped. Thank me in the comments. Like […]

The second: my need to weigh pros and cons for an hour before spending money on yarn. Charging along merrily, congratulating myself on not fucking up the cast-on/join-do-not-twist stage, and then admiring some of the nicest […]

Indecision defused! Sort of! Phew.

Let’s talk knitterising. I just finished Recycled Red, a project that absorbed my mind, fingers and lap for nearly 12 weeks (not counting the time spent dithering before I cast on). An awesome project, and the whole time I was working on it, I planned to make another one as soon as I finished. In […]
