It’s true, I do. So when my husbeast asked me to make him a vest and he chose a pattern with intarsia argyle I was very pleased. I may have prompted him in that direction, but it was totally his choice. Really.
Fast forward through some very frustrating knitting (mostly because of my hatred/lack of skill [...]
If you’ve been reading my posts on Rav you’ll know that I’ve been without internet since some time in November when we moved here. Yep, we’re finally in the new house. It’s bliss! Regardless of the lack of bathroom or laundry, although I do now have a shower, it is fabulous to live rurally.
I have [...]
Not real squirrels, of course, the supersecret type of squirrel.
I’m very excited to show you the collaboration I’ve been working on with Julia Stanfield (j-j on Rav). Julia is the talented designing mind behind the Little Rascals e-book. When she approached me to add some embellishment charts to her re-vamped e-book, how could I resist?
I posted this to my Rav group 6 months ago, and just realised I haven’t posted it here yet. I don’t know what I was thinking.
I thought it would be useful to do a general FAQ-type post about cottage licences here.
I have received numerous requests from knitters asking about my cottage licence terms and [...]
All seems quiet, but things are not always as they seem.
I have been busily working on a few major projects while things have been drifting along at snail’s pace on the surface. Two of the projects are still in the supersecretsquirrel stages of testing, while the other has been released.
I had the pleasure of working [...]
After such a long hiatus, this is not the post I was expecting to write first up. But time is of the essence! So here we are…
For those who know the story of Fester the Glog, you’ll understand my hesitation in writing the story. For those who don’t know the story… where have you been? [...]
Sadly, I need to beg forgiveness for the impending tardiness of the promised February release of the Gnome Garden chart set.
I have a back injury and the pain is making it impossible for me to knit to gauge, let alone think creatively or embellish freely. I was hoping it would be better by now but [...]
The embellish-a-long has now finished. It was brilliant! I had a wonderful time watching embellishments turning up each day, created by crafters who were trying it for the first time or who were having fun playing with some new charts.
Speaking of new charts, the EAL special charts are now available in the Free section. There [...]
The new year has started in top gear for me.
I am hosting an EAL – embellish-a-long – for the Budding Designers Downunder group on Ravelry. Each month a designer or two are chosen to host an “a-long” for the rest of us to have a month of daily help and support from the designer herself. [...]
Things have been slow around here. Very busy and very slow. And it’s about to get a whole lot slower, due to the Watermellish family purchasing a little piece of bliss – a few acres of land in the middle of nowhere with a creek running behind it and nothing but sheep and cows and [...]
