Relax with Tea blackwork

As soon as I saw this pattern I knew I wanted to make it. I have a friend who recently created a library in their home. They are a fellow crafter and creator though not, in the world of needlework (yet). For this design I used some of the colours from the pattern and also... Continue Reading →

Bojagi Shawl

This project was my choice for the Quiet Queers Craftalong 2020, it's a design by the craftalong's creator and when I saw it I adored it. It also finally felt like the right project for my handspun gradient that I'd been holding onto for the perfect project. I'd made this gradient yarn by painstakingly pulling... Continue Reading →

I did... Continue Reading →

If it's helpful for you too when devising how you want to format project pages on your own sites then have at adapting anything that'll... Continue Reading →

SM15 1 – Wintergreen Heart Tree

These socks were indeed a choice. I don't mind purling, I don't feel like I'm that much slower at it but I am way more comfortable with cabling on the right side (RS) of a work than the wrong side (WS). I named this project Wintergreen Heart Tree. Somewhat interestingly I was just getting started... Continue Reading →
