My head is bursting with new design ideas and sometimes it's hard to get them all down on paper. This yarn from Countess Ablaze is absolutely divine and I can't wait to see it grow.

I missed all the the yarn advent calendars. So instead I'm working with this yarn on some more gift knitting. I want to love it but somehow I don't and it really doesn't like me. The alpaca content is shedding everywhere and driving me crazy. I'm persevering as I know the project will be stunning when it's done.

Yesterday the lovely @alpakkaanna asked me #widn but it was dark and I'd finished for the day.  Today is much more interesting - currently I'm calculating whether the yarn I have left is enough for the knitted on border I want to create. I hope so otherwise there will be lots of ripping back later

So proud and amazed ... Jacqui my wonderful tech editor is knitting my #diamondsrockshawl   #Repost @tiggerbeeuk with @repostapp.  One of the advantages of Tech Editing is getting to see amazing patterns before they are released. Watch out for this shawl from @quirkyhandknits (yarn is vintage #thegoldenskein from @gingertwiststudio). #knitting #knittersofinstagram

April was all about new yarn new ideas test knitting and lots of brioche. It also included a lot of waiting.  Now that May has arrived the waiting is nearly over and action can begin

This beautiful skein of cranberry coloured yarn is being turned into snowflake socks. If you're unsure how to cast on for cuff down socks why not check out my YouTube video for the Tillybuddy's cast on - my favourite stretchy cast on.
