KYLA PULLOVER IN WATG SHINY HAPPY COTTON

I’m not sure what to talk about first, the Kyla Pullover knitting pattern or the Out of Space Dyed – 101Β  Spots yarn. Both of these things have my heart, and they both came together in perfect formation to give me the inspiration I’d be searching so long for. When I first laid eyes on this yarn, I think my heart may have almost skipped a beat. It was some time ago, and Knits Please was fairly young so I’d not yet discovered much yarn that really fit my brand. This  ...

KNITTING UPDATES

May Knitting Update

Seriously, it’s the end of May already? How did this happen? Last thing I remember I was feeling super productive with my March knitting update and suddenly two whole months have gone by! Now, I know you guys are around here for the yarn-y goodness, but let me give you a little life update before I dive in… I’m writing this from the dreamy new sofa (in my favourite shade – grey, of course!) in our new flat. We moved out of our house on 12th May, so the weeks before  ...

THE ROLL NECK VEST

It feels like this one’s been a long time coming. I first knit a version of this vest way back at the start of 2015, and over the past few years I’ve adapted and tweaked the design to get to where it is today. It’s been a real passion project, and one that’s found its place firmly close to my heart, so sharing it with the world is both exhilarating and terrifying in equal measure. As my first garment knitting pattern, this vest has also taken me on a whole host of  ...

My Oversized Improv Sweater

Well, if you’ve been following along closely with me on Instagram, you might already know that this sweater ended up to be much more of an effort that I’d anticipated. I spent a long time dreaming up the idea, and I cast it on late last year, but I’ve only just got around to finishing it, which is quite unlike me. It all went wrong around January time, when I was looking at my progress, and how much yarn I had left, and I was pretty sure I had a problem. There definitely  ...

Pattern Testers Required!

Something terribly exciting is happening… I’m working to release my first garment pattern! It was one of my goals for this year, so I’m really happy that I’m working on it and hope to achieve it soon. It’s my first attempt at writing up a pattern for different sizes, so I’m feeling a little nervous but I hope I’m on the right track! Which brings us to the point at hand – I’m looking for testers! Here’s what you need to know: The  ...

KNITTING UPDATES

March Knitting Update

Can you believe this is my first knitting update of the year, already three months in? I’m only coming to this now, because I only now feel like I’ve achieved anything, knit-wise. It was a slow start to the year for me on project progress, but I’m over the hill now, and I’m excited for all of the good things that are to come in the future. Before we think about all of that, though, let’s take a look back at the last few months and what knits I’ve been  ...
