Some long awaited creative posting.

It seems a very long time since I have posted anything creative that I have been working on so I shall now share three projects that I have enjoyed making.

The first is a Christmas present for my beloved partner which I am really pleased with and was chuffed when Sublime  asked if they could use the picture of said jumper in their link on ravelry and mine on ravelry shows more detail.

Also over Christmas me and H went to visit the folks and I found my long and in previous years much loved Suee that had been knitted and made for my sister 49 years ago!! 

I decided to bring her home and to co-ordinate with the bedroom made her her very own dress.

The finally project I want to share is some fingerless mitts H asked me to make him, as being a boy it is not "cool" to be seen in a hand made jumper apparently! but mitts are cool and I have to say I am again very pleased with them.  The link to them and the pattern I have made is on Ravelry the only request I would make is if you are going to use the pattern please link to my page.

Lastly I had to share a new photograph of our walk on my phone setting of our lovely Cleeve Hill walk as I love the Panoramic shot it really conveys the view.


  1. I love this creative post, the jumper and the gloves are great...I am sure hand knits are very cool for kids/teens...Suee looks very posh, glamorous and happy with her new frock! :)

  2. Both the jumper and the mitts look really great. I like the shade change in the yarn used for the mitts.

  3. Love the Jumper! Very nice.
    How lovely to re-love your old teddy.
    Those look like very warm mitts no wonder he's pleased.

Yarn at Medicine, yarn show Birmingham

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking a trip on the train with two yarny friends to have a look at a new yarn event that was taking place.
Any excuse for a trip on the train and if it involves yarn even better!
So having changed my shoes three times I opted for these very cute Mary Jane shoes with little leaf detail on, in order that I could model my "coming soon" new sock design called Liner Line, which is a lovely long sock which is perfect for boots or cute shoes and features a plain foot and textured leg pattern.
This were the beautiful yarns I came away with.
I have a passion for two types of yarns.  One is laceweight for making beautiful shawl designs.  So when I saw this delicate yarn by Third Vault Yarns which was a blend of Bluefaced Leicester and Silk it had to come home with me.

I am very lucky to be friends with Vicki who is the owner of  Vicki Brown Design.  She has an incredible eye for colour and I had been wanting to buy the "Wisteria" colourway y…

Yarndale 2017

Yarndale has now become an annual  and was recently voted 1st place in Best Knitting Event 2017 in the British Knitting & Crochet Awards.

For me personally the event is a culimation of being able to visit the idillyic market town of Skipton which is situated in the parish of Craven in North Yorkshire.  It is not only home to the amazing show that takes place every year for 1000's of fellow yarn lovers to visit and take part in, but has other attractions such as the canal where you can take narrow boat trips.  Skipton also has a great variety of restaurants including Bizzie Lizzies and The Pie and Mash shop which had amazing reviews on Trip Advisor.

Every year the Thirsk Yarn Bombers come up with the most incredible display to decorate the bollards outside the Auction Mart venue, which is always such a great sight and so incredibly imaginative.

Another "tradition" is the Winwick Mum Sock line.  This is run by Christine who is an incredibly talented and kind lady who I…

Just socks!!

I have been knitting socks for nearly ten years.  Initially I started with just plain stocking stitch pattern.  But last year I decided to start designing my own.
This year I released my first design called Twisted Journeys.  The sock was inspired by my travel on a train from Cheltenham to Skipton to visit the annual yarn show where I have shared my recent trip this year 2017 and 2015 in my blog.
I love train travel the anticipation of visiting places and the ability to see places wizz by whilst you are able to sit and knit is always fun.
So during this four hour journey the ideas began to develop in my mind and over a period of time the design progress evolved.

I started to knitting the design whilst staying in a gorgeous cottage in Skipton.

I took them everywhere with me, I sat and knitted in the sunshine after at day at the show with the icon Skipton landmark and high street to look at. I do love people watching and knitting.
It came to Copper's cafe with me a great stop off f…
