The Crit & Knit KAL 2021!

In February of 2020, before I was aware of what the year would become, I announced the Crit & Knit KAL! I thought it would be fun to bring it back for 2021 as there are so many more things I want to knit for it! (Image of I Am Dragon III by Alexandra Davidoff) The Theme The theme of this knit/crochet along is Dungeons & Dragons. Knit or crochet (both are allowed and encouraged) something D&D related, or high fantasy. This can include other tabletop RPGs, Lord of the Rings, unicorns, mermaids, witches, wizards (NO Harry Potter), gnomes, goblins,...


My Lodestar Sweater

My Lodestar Sweater

When I opened up issue no. 37 (Summer 2021) of Pom Pom Magazine, I saw so many gorgeous knitting and crochet patterns! The one in particular that caught my eye was the Lodestar, by Kjerstin Rovetta. It has such a gorgeous lace pattern at the top, with a stocking stitch body. The perfect balance of interest when you cast on a project, followed by the mindless comfort knitting of the body and arms. (Image from Pom Pom Magazine no. 37) I dyed up some yarn right away and cast it on. I've had a Pom Pom subscription for over 2...

So you will get a completely different colour...


The Fluff Nugget Cardigan!

The Fluff Nugget Cardigan!

I was so lucky to test knit Becky Sorensen's latest pattern release. One of the perks of being BFFs with a knitwear designer is that I get all the sneak peeks. I've not designed a pattern ever, other than a few crochet patterns. I get to see behind the scenes, how much goes into each design and how long it takes! When I first saw the sketch of the Fluff Nugget, I fell in love. Then, once I saw Becky's finished garment, I knew that it would be so wearable!

Lockdown Sockdown KAL!

Lockdown Sockdown KAL!

I thought it was about time that I wrote a little blog post about the fun that is the Lockdown Sockdown! This lockdown has hit me harder than the previous ones. I'm not really sure why, but I think it's partly because it's now January, the weather is bleak in the UK and it just feels endless... CUE THE SOCKDOWN! (Yarn is Luna by Chromatic Yarns) It's time to bring people together, get the community together and focus on something other than doom-scrolling all day. What better way to conquer this than to knit socks?? This is a very casual...
