No Nylon Here | Exploring Socks Part 1

By | October 26th, 2017|#exploringsocks, #knitsharelove, Socks|

A Sock Experiment I love hand knit socks and I am passionate about exploring the materials that I choose to work with. What better way to combine the two passions by exploring some alternative sock yarn options! I posted about this on Instagram a few weeks ago and the response was huge. I really enjoyed reading all your comments and thoughts, some really interesting ideas and lots of questions. It really got me thinking ... When I teach about socks I always talk about them in three ways: fit, durability and aesthetics. As a knitter we can [...]

Heart on My Sleeve

By | February 15th, 2017|#knitsharelearn, #knitsharelove, Designs|

Heart On My Sleeve When Emily from Tin Can Knits told me about this project last year I was blown away. A collection of sweaters by some of the most respected and inspiring designers out there to raise money for charity, what a fantastic way to spread love and give back! When you buy the ebook, $16.80 of the $18 USD purchase price goes to the Against Malaria Foundation (the other $1.20 is made up of Paypal and Ravelry fees). Each sweater is worked in DK from the bottom up, with a yoke construction and the [...]

Skua

Hello there, Its August - somehow I blinked and its August! I think the theme for 2016 around here is going to be a general sense of shock at how fast time seems to be flying by. Last weekend I had my first trunk show in Australia - it was awesome and I was so grateful for the opportunity. Such fun meeting so many knitters - although I must admit I am looking forward to a quite weekend over the next few days. I might even tackle some of that sewing I have been meaning to do. I wanted to [...]

Caught My Eye | Docks

By | June 24th, 2016|#knitsharelove, Caught my eye|

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.

The Travel Trio

By | June 10th, 2016|#knitsharelove, Designs, Socks, Travel|

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 [...]

Community

By | April 10th, 2016|#knitsharelove, Travel|

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

By | April 4th, 2016|#knitsharelove, Travel|

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 [...]
