I saw something online and was inspired to try this. Its double sided tunisian knit. It could look better IMHO but for a first try it wasn’t so bad. This was made by doing pick up colour a, turn work off colour b, purl colour b, turn work off colour a.

Ok. My friend Dave on google plus does plenty of this and he has inspired me to try it. This is the first time I picked up knitting needles in a long time. I was impressed I could cast on and remember knit and purl. I haven’t started any form of pattern so really this [...]

After a good while spent looking through many of my stitch books, I now fear I should have gotten her looking at my pattern books instead..

So. Playing with ideas for next blanket. I wanted to swirl but black on the outside line didn’t work it disappeared when the swirl came round. Worked better on the inside. Then I tried a 6 point star. What else do you think would work?

I have been asked to make a couple of things. They are still in the design phase. This is a scarf, likely to end up around 40cm by 3m.. yes.. that was the size they want! Background colour is to be decided, as is the size. At the moment thats around lap blanket size. So, [...]

So, I enjoy making patterns of things, and its dawned on me that there maybe people out there who would like to make some of my patterns. So, I had a thought. If I make some patterns, I feel I should charge for them, I don’t tend to charge for anything else I do, so, [...]

My plans are to put some “How I did that” pages/posts together. While I don’t view what I do as exciting or complicated, I do know that sometimes its just because maybe you never thought it that way. First plan is making a pattern – now, if i give you an idea of my general [...]
