Inbetween

I’m in the middle of my one and only week at home in June this year. Last week I was back down in Bradford for the preview night of the degree show. It was lovely to go to as my mum, husband, and son came with me and they really enjoyed seeing everything finished. They, […]

It’s done!

Well, I did it. I finally got my final collection for college completed and set-up for the end of year show. For once, I actually nearly managed to do the time management thing and only had a couple of things to do when I got to college. Of course, those things take ages to do. […]

Catching Up

My final weekend at Bradford College before my degree show went fine and I’m quite excited weaving my final collection. If the ideas work out it should hopefully look rather cool.

Breathe

Summer is now slowly ebbing away but things are still very busy at Knit 1 Girl 1. All things yarny had to cease for a few weeks as my asthma that hasn’t bothered me for years came back with a vengeance. Unfortunately, it seems to be triggered by hayfever, dust, and anything fuzzy or fluffy, […]

Teaching and learning

Where is the time going! It’s nearly November and I can’t believe where the months are vanishing too. Think it’s this being kept busy thing which is making time evaporate. I managed to get all my work done for Bradford and made it down for the October teaching weekend. It was great to catch up […]

Learn Something New

The schools are back which means that I can get on learning and weaving myself, and also I can start to teach others various yarny things. I’ve finally managed to get my warp that I started in Bradford onto my table loom at home. This isn’t something I really want to do again, mainly because […]
