If you’re representing for the knitterly parts of North America, you also just put the wrap on a holiday weekend (we had our holiday on Friday, ‘Murricans on Monday), so I hope that means you got in a bit of knitting time with a relaxing beverage. On Friday I finished the last few rounds of […]


Here we go, my my friendly neighbourhood sock knitters – I’m pleased to share that my So Simple sport weight sock pattern is now fully updated and is available on Ravelry here. This pattern was my first sock pattern, originally posted in 2009. Seven years go by pretty quickly when you’re busy Knitting All The […]


Friends, I have to go ahead and thank Past Me for getting halfway through the borders of these granny squares some months ago. I finished the regular parts of these 340 squares back in April but had managed to get through the final border round of 180 of them before turning my attention to the […]


The granny squares are back! And I have honestly spent the last hour composing a blog post to you about it, on my day off, from my old slow clunky laptop. and then the internet ate it and now I am swallowing my rage about that and narrowly resisting smashing said laptop into tiny pieces. […]


Guys, I’ve remembered why I love knitting socks on yarn heavier than fingering weight. Wait for it…it’s because they’re fast. I know, I know! Shocking, right? But the fact is the heavier the yarn, the fewer stitches you need and therefore the less time you need to knit it up. But very heavy yarn is […]


Sock knitting continues around these parts! Some days depending on how busy I am, a few rounds of sock knitting are the only knitting progress of the day. It’s reassuring in that way. As promised, here are answers to a few questions I got about sock knitting. If you’ve never tried it and are curious, […]


When last we caught up with my spring sweater project, I was just about to join the body and the sleeves to work the yoke – the final main step before the final finishing, so all was looking up! It was then, I discovered (dramatic music cue), that about five inches earlier on the body, […]


Last week the fabulous ladies over at Mason-Dixon Knitting (Ann and Kay, I really am going to get back to that Liberty Blanket I started last summer, honest I swear) were kind enough to give me a shout-out on their post about getting into sock knitting, and it made me remember, oh yeah, sock knitting […]


Something else I’ve discovered in my “hey let’s take a pause on churning out granny squares from now until the end of time” crafting phase, is that, hey, you know what? Most knitting projects have noticeable parts to them. Not everything needs to have an endless repetition of the same crafting process over and over […]


Since putting down my granny square project for a much-needed pause (I’ll get to those borders and assembly in due course), I’ve found myself with a bit of knitting ADD. Or possibly whiplash from having focussed on such a large project for such an amount of time…Or another metaphor which I have yet to come […]
