🍁 October 🍁

Enjoyed my extra hour in bed this morning, not enjoying this rain, really enjoyed this month's knits.



The Zillenial cardigan (as I've started calling it) has been a real labour of love - stopped and started multiple times, frogged a few and constantly put on hold in favour of completing a deadline. It's lovely to have it finished, and a joy to wear. The yarn is absolute 🔥

This month's socks were such an easy knit. They absolutely flew by, and the wool is so soft and cosy. My favourite colour changes daily - today it's that lovely strawberry ice cream

It's been a manic month here, so manic in fact that I forgot to show your the purple delight that was this month's @perthfestivalofyarn & @my.yarnunique patch!

First of the Christmas knits done and dusted. Laying it out on the floor doesn’t do it justice at all and this is going to be very hard to part with.

It’s the most gorgeously soft yarn - silk and baby camel. I kept getting distracted while knitting it and had to just squish it! Once the rest of the Christmas gifts are knit I may have to make one of these for myself 😍

I bought the yarn and pattern at #perthfestivalofyarn from @dyeninja

Woven creation now complete! 🌸🌸🌸
140cm x 18cm woven scarf using our handspun and hand dyed wool in Perth Festival of Yarn colours.



Ideal gift for that special someone (including yourself) For commissions contact @wishingewewerehere

Thanks to a wee bit of lunchtime knitting today and some train knitting yesterday, I finished these socks just in time for #dystopicfibresockalong finishing.



Yes, the two cuffs are different and technically I will need to go back and change one of them, but I'm chuffed I finished a pair of socks so quickly.

Cant wait for @breagh369 to get home from work so she can try them on and choose which one she likes better!

Which do you think looks better? Half twisted 1x1 rib on the left or a standard 2x2 rib on the right (swipe to see a close up).

Pattern is Simply the Simplest socks by @loveliestyarnco
Yarn is high-twist DK by @dyeninja bought at @perthfestivalofyarn
Cat stitchmarkers by @candyskullcrafts
Tree stitchmarker by @mothy.and.the.squid
Awesome project bag by @caddia86

🍂 September 🍂

A dreary wet day for September's #thismonthsknits2021 , which includes not too many knits but a fair amount of handspun yarn!

I find the drop spindle so relaxing and the end product is just so pretty ❤️ It's also been a joy to pick my Throwback up again after it got sidelined for some test and sample knits

3. 🧶 Doulton Border Leicester @doultonborderleicesters

New to us baby loom being warped with PFOY colours. Merino softness to be transformed into a scarf.

I made good progress with my second sock at the weekend, but Kuro doesn't want anyone to see! 😂

Can we just talk about how completely gorgeous this colourway is from @bluedotyarn ?

I mean, look at that wash of aquamarine. And all those speckles! Pops of red and gold. And it’s called Moonage Daydream. How perfect, right?
The lovely Kate of Blue Dot Yarn created this colourway inspired by David Bowie and released as an exclusive for @perthfestivalofyarn , who then very kindly sponsored a skein for me to giveaway on my podcast.
So, if you would love to be in with a chance to win this beautiful skein of yarn (400m sw merino nylon fingering weight), then hop on over to my channel, like, subscribe and then leave me a comment on what is bringing you joy in your making right now. You’ll find the link in my bio.
In fact, even if you’ve entered already, you should totally go check out the comment section - it might just be the most joyful place on the internet right now!
I’ll draw a winner before I record the next episode of The Meaningful Stitch - so you have about a week to enter. But I would just go and do it now, if I were you! 😉
Thank you, Kate for sharing your artistry with the world. And thank you Eva for your generosity and for staging a bloody brilliant event the other week there - I hope you’re getting a chance now to put your feet up and catch your breath a bit!

Getting ready to cast on my next @perthfestivalofyarn project :) I’m super excited about this one!



I’m making the millworkers shawl - pattern from @doultonborderleicesters (we went to the book launch on the Friday night at perth festival of yarn and listened to a wonderful talk from Ellie - and even got to try on the beautiful samples)

The yarn I’m using as mc - Arnbeg from @beardychiel it is a 70%alpaca and 30%Rose and it is unbelievably soft!

For the colour pops I’m using @amoyarn colour club trio of minis from the last few months (4ply sock merino / nylon 75/25)

And im using this amazing (and festive ) project bag I got from the lovely Ellen @kalokshekellen which easily fit all the mini skeins and my mcs! Love it

Yesterday I cast on a pair of @loveliestyarnco Simply the Simplest socks with the high-twist DK I bought from @dyeninja @perthfestivalofyarn last weekend.



Making a pair for @breagh369 as she fell in love with this gorgeous teal colourway called Calypso. No surprises that I opted for purple for mine 😂

I'm probably a bit late to join in with @dystopicfibre #dystopicfibresockalong but I'll give it a go anyway!

Can't believe that @perthfestivalofyarn was already a week ago!

These 2 jewel-toned skeins of DK from @dyeninja were one of the few purchases that I bought with a specific pattern in mind...
