Unst Cardigan

I don’t think any summer has affected my knitting as much as the last one. We broke through a couple of heat records and it was the driest summer of my life time. It went on for months. It reflected in my crafting; knitting went […]

Parrot Puffin

I don’t often knit the same pattern twice. Certainly when it concerns garments, it is a rarity. I have often professed “I´d like to knit this again at some point”, or “This pattern would be so cool in a totally different colour palette”, but you […]
