FO Report: Black Sands

Blink and you’ll miss it. From this: to this: in about five weeks! Astonishing. Also a bit misleading, because that top photo is of (I think) a sleeve, so not really the start of the piece or anything like that. Not that it matters! I have a point to make and that point is SPEEDY. […]

FO report: Summerfly

Well that went quickly. If you’re looking for a summer top that’s pretty, easy to make, comfy and flattering, well I’ve got it right here. And if you already knew about it, where the hell have you been? Why didn’t anybody TELL me about Summerfly? I wanted a summer tank to take with us to […]

FO Report: Slippin’

I finished my Great Sock Project and found myself without anything on the needles. While dithering and indecisive, the solution landed on my feet. Or around them. Not sure: the point is I’m cold. I made a pair of felted clogs years ago (back in the early days of the blog, actually), and have long […]

The Great Sock Project!

The alert among you will have noticed the absence of knitterly knitting posts around these parts lately. You could be forgiven for thinking I had lost interest in knitting and that it had simply faded from the blog’s purview, to be only a distant archived memory. You could be, but will not be. How dare […]

Hempdress – FO Report

This is a seriously great pattern. I think it is one of the best I’ve ever knitted. You start with a provisional cast on across the top of the shoulders, and knit the two fronts and the back separately until you reach the bottom of the armholes, then you join them and work flat, from […]

A post regarding a knitted bear. (FO Report)

See, I could have called this post “Teddy, Steady, Go!” or “Unbearably cool!” or something equally punderful and exclamatory. But I didn’t, because I’m a decent blogger who understands that, by the time you’ve reached the age of 12, you’ve heard every pun about bears ever made. Here’s a bear I knitted. The jumper just […]

FO Report: Red Friday

It took patience, but we got there. Presenting: Red Friday! Light, comfortable and casual, I’m pretty smitten. After much dithering and overthinking, I cast on shortly before we were called away to another city to help out after a sudden death in the family. Red Friday was a huge comfort while I was there: apart […]

FO Report – Black Coffee

I wasn’t sure. I was starting to get sick of it. I unravelled the cowl neck and redid it, enjoying SEVERAL YEARS of knitting 1×1 rib around and around and around and around. Tidied up the armholes by picking up stitches around each one, working two plain rows and then casting off. Wove in the […]

Roundy roundy round round

I made socks. No biggie. You can keep moving. There’s probably a video somewhere of a dog trying to get a stick through a door you could be watching. Oh, these socks? Yeah, okay, they’re a bit special. A bit avant-garde. A bit…beautiful. Long time coming and I’m totally in love with them. Years ago […]

FO Report – Mermaid Gloves

Before I even get to the beauty, comfort and all-round knitaliciousness that make up these gloves, two very important points are worth mentioning. 1) These gloves have been a long time coming. I cast them on the first time M and I went to Tasmania, which was (err umm) June 2009. Blimey! Three years! Anyway, […]
