Having compared the sleeves of my Miriam cardigan I realised the ribbed cuffs were different sizes. I think this stems from me knitting one with 3.25mm needles and one with 4mm needles. I have several pairs of similar looking bamboo needles! I wondered how this could be fixed, a quick Google brought up several sites… Continue reading The First Cut is the Deepest
Looking to expand my crochet skills after finishing Lyra I picked up a new magazine “Simply Crochet”. It has lots of beautiful patterns in it including the heart I used in my yarn bomb.

Its such a wonderfully creative idea… Continue reading Weather Scarf- a year long project
Ok so I had finally realised this wasn’t going how its supposed to. I had way to many stitches and the pattern while visible in parts, didn’t match up in others. I ripped back about 5 rows and started again. Turns out I was right, I had been crocheting into the wrong stitches and spaces… Continue reading Lyra – the first hurdle
