    Little Songbird Knitting Co. Cellular Blanket

    Sorry for the radio silence, but… I’ve had a baby! Baby ‘I’ was born in July weighing a healthy 7.11lbs! She was 1 week late, and is completely beautiful. I’ve been getting to grips with being a mummy and don’t seem to have time for much else, hence why there has been no post for the last 7 months!

    June WIPS 2018

    Wow what a scorcher this summer has been so far! I could blame that on my June WIPS post actually being written in July, but the truth is I just forgot!

    Toft Abergeldie Lace Cardigan

    I first saw this Toft Abergeldie Lace Cardigan cardigan on the cover of the Toft Quarterly Winter 2016 magazine and immediately loved it. I’ve eyed up a few lace back cardigans in the past, but I liked this as the lace wasn’t too fussy and different from most lace I have seen.

    Wednesday Pattern Share

    This week’s Wednesday Thursday Pattern Share is slightly selfish, but it’s a great pattern so I didn’t think anyone would mind! In the UK spring is most definitely well underway. The sun is shining and all of the plants are finally getting going. This lovely weather though has highlighted something I’ve known for a while, but have been trying to ignore; I have a serious deficit in the spring/ light weight knitwear section of my wardrobe! I have a long, cotton, crocheted cardigan I bought from Gap several years ago, and some cheap, slightly too small and ill fitting cardigans, but apart from that everything else is super warm and thick.…

    Purl Alpaca Design’s Niobe Jumper

    Hello! Happy New Year everyone. I don’t think I said that in my last blog post. Obviously it’s VERY belated now! Hope everyone is doing well and have a great year ahead! I was so pleased to get that last blog post finally published. I don’t know why it was taking so long, but I feel like a plug has been pulled and now I feel all wordy again, hurrah! I am currently writing this post whilst in California. I am here with work for a week and am having a relaxing day before the craziness of the week begins. As usual I have bought my knitting with me for…

    Vintage Lace Blanket

    After my friend announced she was pregnant, I had a vision! A vision of a bright, blue, lace blanket. I immediately knew this was what I was going to knit for her, and set about hunting down the perfect pattern and yarn!

    Charity Shop Pattern Finds #2

    Soooo I’ve been at it again (searching charity shops for awesome knitting patterns that is!) and this time I think I’ve found some real gems! You may remember my previous post Charity Shop Pattern Finds, where I found Spot the Dog patterns, a lovely crocheted dress and patterns for Father Christmas jumpers, the latter of which I actually managed to make for J this Christmas! How is it possible to top such delights, I hear you ask? Well I’m pleased to say it is possible with these amazing vintage patterns I managed to dig out! The styling alone on these patterns makes me gloriously happy (especially the dapper gent in…
