  1. Knitting and Crochet Journals!

    Posted on

    There are a couple of new additions to the website this week - meet the new Knitting and Crochet Project Planners!

    Knitting Project Planner

    Keep track of all your knitting or crochet projects with this handy planner, journal and tracker - it also includes a Yarn Show planner!

    Do you often have multiple projects on the go at once? Do you wish there was an easy way to keep track of them all AND have a final record that you can reference if you decide to make the same project again?

    As a knitter, I've tried many different systems to try and keep track of my projects, from post-it notes to spreadsheets. But what I really needed was something that I could keep handy in my project bag that would not only serve as a complete Project Tracker but also as a record of all my past makes.

    And so these journals were created.

    These trackers makes it easy to keep all of your essential project information at your fingertips. With space for 40 projects you can document the pattern source, yarn details, needles, notions, sizing and start / finish date. There is also a handy 'Project Summary' section where you can give your finished project a star rating and note any important information which may be useful if you decide to make the project again.

    As a regular attender of yarn shows, I've included a handy Yarn Show planner too to help you get organised ahead of the event and have a plan of exactly what projects you want to purchase for and how much you want to spend.

    This journal also includes handy reference sheets for yarn weights, fibres and gauges, and an 'at-a-glance' sheet of common abbreviations.

    Planning a trip? There's a section where you can record details of each yarn shop you want to visit along the way.

    At the back of the book you'll find graph paper which you can use to write out your own charts or to draw out different colourwork ideas.

    And there is plenty of space for your own notes and sketches too.

    This journal would make an excellent gift for any knitter or crocheter!

  2. Yarn Advent - Pre-Orders are now open!

    Posted on

    I know, I know, it's not even Summer and already I'm talking about Advents!

    It takes quite a lot of prepping and organising to create each individual advent so I need to allow as much time as possible to put them together. Hence the early call.

    But I'm super excited to be doing this, my first ever advent! The sample yarns have been dyed to make sure they work together and the pattern is being worked on as we speak. I already can't wait to share them with you!


    Join me for a yarny adventure into the Enchanted Forest!

    Every day in December you will unwrap a 10g mini-skein which you can use to knit an exclusive pattern for the advent!

    The skeins work together to create a fade for a large wrap pattern which uses simple lace stitches.

    The Advent includes:

    • 24 x 10g individually wrapped mini skeins which work together to create a fade. The yarn base is 4ply 75% Supwerwash Merino / 25% nylon
    • An exclusive pattern for the mini-skeins
    • A presentation box
    • Tracked UK postage

    You can also choose to add on:

    • A full skein of sock yarn in an exclusive Christmas colourway to open on Christmas day (100g / 425m - 75% Superwash Merino / 25% nylon)
    • Some extra gifts throughout the month

    About the Pattern

    The pattern included will be for a large, rectangular wrap.

    Stitches Used: Sl1 wyif, knit, purl, yarnover, k2tog, ssk, sl2tog-k1-psso

    You will recieve a paper copy of the pattern in your Advent. The pattern will be officially released in January 2024 after which a digital copy can be sent to you via email or on Ravelry.

    There are a limited amout of Advents available so don't miss out!
