Use Nine 2019 – Pippa

      9 Comments on Use Nine 2019 – Pippa

Well, it looks like February might be the month I return to blogging and hopefully I manage to keep it up throughout the year. Part of my problem in the main part of the year is that I don’t like WordPress’s mobile app at all and I have issues uploading images to it as well! And I just don’t have… Read more »

Which just seems to contain knitted things at the moment! This hat… Read more »

That and Shelia inspired me to start on the Christmas makes already. I am planning a fair isle knit vest for my Uncle so hit Ravelry for some inspiration:… Read more »

Now that I’m back from sailing the whole time I am thinking about what I want to sew, so I have had a look at my progress on my #makenine plans. So far I have managed to finish my blanket and my Sasha trousers (minus hemming them) and started on a nice floaty blouse for me. I am switching out… Read more »

Summer of Basics – Jumper – Planning

      No Comments on Summer of Basics – Jumper – Planning

For my summer of basics, I have planned to knit a summer Jumper, based loosely on the one that I bought last year for Spikes Funeral because I didn’t own anything thing that was yellow enough for the day. I have worn this jumper loads since then as it is very easy to throw over anything that I am wearing… Read more »
