Caught My Eye | Gee’s Bend

This weeks Caught My Eye has a special significance as it combines my love of knitting with my newly found interest in quilt making. Some of you may recall that I started this year off learning to sew, I made some garments (most of which I am wearing fairly regularly) but something didn't quite stick. I think I need bigger sections of time that I have at the moment to get to grips with sizing and finishing. I have lots of things I want to sew and (ahem) have acquired some fabric too, but I have struggled to really get [...]

Caught My Eye | Docks

Hello again Hope you have had a wonderful week. It is very chilly here - far colder than I could ever have imagined - so my mind is firmly fixed on wool, and lots of it. I am trundling through my to-do list, which includes making time to work out exactly what to do with my blogging space. In the meantime I wanted to share this beautiful sweater with you that instantly grabbed my attention when I saw it on Ravelry.

Caught My Eye | This Thing of Paper

Today I am welcoming back an old friend to the blog - the Caught My Eye series. Although this week is slightly different to the usual Friday blog post of days gone by I am hoping it will reintroduce the sharing space I always enjoyed so much about blogging. As you may have noticed I have struggled to find my blogging feet - I keep thinking I've got them back and then as I stand up I wobble and have to carefully sit back down again. 'Tis the way sometime I think with so many big changes all around me. [...]

The Travel Trio

The Travel Trio | New Designs and Knit-along Hello, how are you? I hope your June is off to a good start. I am adapting to the chill of the Victorian winter (in all honesty it is far colder than I expected it to be and I may have done a little grumbling in the last few weeks as I pulled on "all the knitwear" to keep warm). The silver lining is I am getting to wear all my lovely hand knits. We are settling in nicely to our new home and I have been meeting lovely knitters which is [...]

Settling in and making plans

Settling in and making plans Two months ago the little one and I boarded a plane after an inspiring (and unexpected) week in New Zealand and headed ‘home’. A few short hours later we were touching down – in Melbourne – permanent visas granted and everything we had been dreaming of stretched out in front of us. For those of you who have followed this blog for a while you will know this move was a long time (for me at least) in the making. I don't think I have ever waited so long to move anywhere. I’ve moved a [...]

Community

Community During the months of travel and change we have just experienced I was often reminded of the beautiful fibre community I am part of, how it holds us, supports us, nurtures our creativity and inspires us. I have been very lucky this year to visit many new places and meet new knitters, yarn dyers and fibre producers. In the next few months I will be sharing these stories and more as I explore the fibre community here in Australia. Over the years I have found there are so many wonderful ways to meet people through knitting and I am [...]

New Beginnings

Update from the sunny shores of Victoria | Australia First glimpse of Australia as we came in to land over Sydney's coastal area.... Hello – how are you? It has been terribly quiet around here recently (watches tumbleweed slowly drift past) … I have been a little more chatty over on Instagram, but mostly I have been on the move, or emptying boxes (although on the move sounds far more exciting than emptying boxes). I had planned to be way more chatty over here while we travelled but with all the back and forth I just fell behind [...]
