Bearford Flock Visit

Earlier this week I had the distinct pleasure of venturing out to the East Coast Organics Farm located in East Lothian to meet the animals that are responsible for the Wool of the Month: Bearford Flock. I was already a big fan of the wool, but it just added to my love and enthusiasm for […]

Blankets: Marley and Hedgehogs

Today’s blog is about a couple beautiful blankets. The new book from the TinCanKnits duo has been released today! ‘Mad Colour’ is a gorgeous collection of knits, and I’m super chuffed for my yarn to have been used in this publication. Marley is a blanket knit in one piece with loads of garter stitch and […]

Another Cropped Tee

Yes, its another cropped item. This is the life I live! Anna Wilkinson’s Cropped Tee pattern is a fab pattern for a newish/not-so-confident-crocheter such as myself. For this project I used 3 skeins of Brigantia Aran, and it was super quick and rewarding project. The longest bit was waiting for the pieces to finish drying […]
