Knitting In Public

Home again … for now! ;)

[Translate] Wow!! What an amazing 2 months it has been! If you haven’t been following my Facebook or Instagram posts, you might not know that I have been traveling across the UK and Europe for the last 2 months! It was my intention to be blogging regularly as I visited yarn shops and shows etc, but let’s just say I was overwhelmed by all the experiences I had while over there! I did manage a few posts, but after Woollinn (which I will have to add to), I was entirely too busy to post regularly. I did do “mini” […]

Getting Better at Knitting

[Translate] Like most things in life, the secret to becoming better at knitting is to embrace the social aspect of it and to congregate with other knitters!When I learned to knit I didn’t have the benefit of YouTube and numerous knitting groups to choose from. Yes, I came from the school of hard knocks and have frogged many a project and made many, many, mistakes.

It’s a Party …

[Translate] … And you’re invited!! Tomorrow is International Knit In Public Day, even though us seasoned knitters don’t need a reason to flash our sticks in public! And yes, crocheters are welcome too!  It doesn’t matter if you’re shy or (k)not though, as tomorrow you’ve been given license to get out and show the world your stitches!! There will be gatherings all over the world as knitters congregate en masse and do what they like doing best – a knit here, a purl there, even a YO or two. I of course will be doing some serious cables as […]
