Interview | The Travelknitter

By | July 28th, 2016|Interviews, Travel, Yarn|

Hello there How have you been. As I am sure you can tell by the irregular posting on this blog I am still working hard at finding my feet in our new home. We are in the middle of winter and boy is it cold! Great hand knit sock weather though - you've always got to look for the silver lining. Today I have a very special interview with Larissa from Travelknitter - originally from Mebourne she now lives in London and loves travelling as well as knitting (it's all in the name I suppose) ... I used one of [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Yarn Adventures | Prince Albert

By | January 22nd, 2016|#knitsharelove, #lovelocalyarn, Interviews, Travel, Yarn|

Yarn Adventures in Prince Albert, Little Karoo | #lovelocalyarn Sun rises over the Swartberg in the Little Karoo It is a fairly well documented fact that I love exploring and I love yarn – I especially love exploring that involves looking for yarn (often much to my husband’s despair – although I must say now that he has a kindle I can happily wander off for a lovely yarn exploration trip without too much bother). South Africa is a weird one for yarn – there are sheep a plenty and a fair amount of the yarn we champion [...]

{Summer Blog Break} Copyright | Used in accordance with t&c's Hi everyone, Hope you have all had a wonderful week.

I am so grateful to all my readers and the fantastic knitters I come across everyday. That said, I am very much in need of some time to reflect and regroup - as you know it has been a year [...]
