Socks for mini me

  The great thing about T’s feet, the size they are now, is that I always have enough leftover yarn to make her some socks after I’ve made some for myself or Tim. She’s growing so fast though, I won’t be able to do it forever. I guess that’s when I’ll move onto stripy socks […]

Handmade365, days 13 & 14

Another couple of hectic days over here, but I am finally sat down with my feet up (as you can see from the second photograph). Today I’m showing you a skirt and some socks. Hold onto your seats. So this skirt was one I made without using a pattern, I just traced round an existing […]

In which I photograph something black badly, once again

I’m only going to make things in bright colours from now on. So. This is a jumper I knitted using Rowan Kidsilk Haze. It’s a nice yarn but does get a little hairy after a few washes (apparently you can take a razor to it but I’m a bit scared to do that). The pattern […]

The hard to photograph LBD

I think it’s the fact that it’s black that makes it impossible, so you’re going to have to use your imagination. It’s black, it has a slash neck (sort of) and you can find the pattern here so do your best. It’s made out of jersey (from Fabworks again!) and was put together in an […]

The very fantastic Issey Miyake coat

Quite excited about this one 🙂 I made a coat, following Issey Miyake’s Vogue pattern V1320. I have made coats before but was a bit nervous about this one, I think because it’s a ‘real’ winter coat, not like the other coats I have messed about with. The fabric is from Abakhan in North Wales. […]

Day 9 – Malabrigo socks

I love the word Malabrigo. And I love the yarn too. A friend bought me a skein of Malabrigo sock yarn as a thank you for fixing her jumper. It’s not a colour I would have chosen but I’m so glad she went for this one as I love it, it looks almost camouflage knitted […]

The past 3 days… And today

The past 3 days have been a tad tricksy. My 3 year old daughter caught a bug and gave up sleeping for the duration. She announced she was feeling better yesterday (phew), slept last night (phew!) and went to preschool today (PHEW!). I have never needed these 3 hours as much as I do today. […]

The copycat jumper dress

I made this jumper dress after first seeing it on my friend Sarah. She let me borrow her dress (shop bought, from Cos) which I traced a pattern from and remade. The fabric is from The Shuttle in Shipley. I’m not entirely sure what the fabric is – I’m not even 100% sure it’s not […]

Rowan Lima

The minute I touched this yarn I wanted to take it home with me. I found it in Baa Ram Ewe (possibly the best yarn shop in the world) at one of their yarn tasting nights. It’s 84% baby alpaca and this jumper I made from it is easily the warmest thing I own. The […]
