  1. Making a start.....

    Posted on

    I've been on annual leave this past week so I've been working on getting kits and patterns on my website.  So far I've got a pair of bootees on and a hat and cowl in the planning.  I'm really enjoying seeing everything starting to come together and I can visualise how I want things to look.  I was originally going to offer knitwear but I think I'll just end up overwhelmed and fed up knitting anytime something gets sold and needs replaced.  It'll take the enjoyment out of it for me so I'll design and knit something once and get it organised in a kit.

    These yarns are beautiful to work with.  I'm not used to using chunky wool so the Rowan big wool felt a bit like knitting with broom handles and soft rope.  On the plus side, it knits up at lightening speed and is as soft as a cloud.
