I am in stitches!

I have been sick as a horse these past week and decided on rekindling my knitting skills. Years ago, my swedish sister brought us a bunch of knitting sticks from Sweden and taught us the basics like casting on, purl stitching and sock stitching. 170 more words

An evening Bronte

This is yet another fabric I’ve had languishing in my stash for quite a while and thought it would make a perfect Bronte top. I was attracted to the paisley design and in fact bought two pieces of this fabric – this grey and a black one, still to be converted to something wearable. 140 more words

Bronte number 3

I’ve had this fabric in my stash for many, many months and I am pleased that it’s finally left the cupboard.

It is a knit panel which I’ve looked at on multiple occasions and had no idea what to make from it. 284 more words

Reversible jacket number two

When I made my reversible jacket, Bridgette liked it and asked for one too. No second bidding required! I tried to buy the checked fabric but it was sold out, so I bought the same boiled, foiled wool in a herringbone pattern. 116 more words

Cardigan take 2

I thought I might make a cardigan and found McCalls 2128 in my stash which suited my purposes well. There are 8 different versions and I chose the round necked, three-quarter length sleeve version. 404 more words

Butterick 5559

I can’t remember where I first saw this pattern, but I did think it would be quite flattering and would be useful for a bit of stashbusting as it uses a relatively small amount of fabric. 620 more words
