I’m so excited to share with you my latest pattern release, which goes on sale today over on Ravelry!
In between knitting for my latest pattern release – Hessian Shawl, I’ve been reading reading reading. Audiobooks are a knitter’s best friend and I’ve really enjoyed broadening my reading horizons, whilst being able to thoroughly ‘crack on’ with my various knitting projects.
I’m halfway through my journey to read at least 40 books this year, with the help of a little reading challenge by Popsugar. You can check out my progress on my shawl and reading list below!
What have you been reading lately? How do you balance reading and knitting in your spare time?
It’s been over a year since the release of my first knitting pattern. And in that time so many wonderful knitters have picked up this woven baby blanket pattern and made it their very own. I’m so unbelievably happy with the feedback that I’ve had from knitters, and was genuinely amazed (and still am) that it’s been as popular as it has been! I just had to share a few of the finished Hessian Baby Blankets right here! You can see all of these in more detail over on the Hessian Baby Blanket Ravelry project page.
Ready for autumn yet? Nope, me neither…but this just might help you get in the mood.
Introducing a brand new baby blanket knitting pattern that has been so close to my heart for the past few months. I’m so excited to finally release it! Spindrift is so called because for me it represents foaming beach waves, sea shells, a rolling tide…and the more I think about it, the further I drift away.
Say hello to my latest knitting pattern Hessian. So called for the repeating slipped stitch pattern used, which creates a similar texture and weave to a hessian or burlap fabric. This super soft baby blanket knitting pattern is quick to knit, and features a non-rolling edge stitch for a very neat finish. It’s available to purchase on Ravelry and LoveKnitting right now.
I made something for myself!!! This is a momentous occasion. Not that I don’t love making things for anyone else, but it’s lovely to make something and know I’m going to be the one wrapping up in it. So I really treated myself this time. I invested in two massive skeins of amazingly soft, super chunky Cascade Magnum in my favourite colour Camel, which I picked up online from Loveknitting.com
Often the simplest designs are the most effective. And that’s never more true that with my latest free knitting pattern, my Bria Armwarmers. Knitting on DP needles in stockinette stitch, featuring a very small ribbed cuff at both ends.
