Edinburgh Yarn Festival

If you hadn’t noticed by all my Facebook, twitter, and instagram posts, I was at Edinburgh Yarn Festival at the weekend. I shared a stall with my good friend Karen at Once A Sheep. We also had great help from our friends Jane, Rosie and Seona, who we couldn’t have managed to do the whole thing without […]

1st Year!

A year ago this weekend I opened up my studio! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone and even better, how well it’s gone! The year started off with throwing everything into the studio and try and get some work made whilst trying to finish my course at Bradford College. I got there […]

Refreshing London

September has proved to be a very busy month. The first week was taken over by the reconstruction of the front studio. A new wall has been built to split the space into two studios. It was a bit scary at first, but now it’s done the space feels a lot cosier and not as […]

Settling In

When I moved into the studio in December I pretty much threw everything in as I had to get my head down to weave all the things for college. So, it’s not really been working at it’s full potential as a work space and needed a shift around. It took a couple of days, and […]

Head in the clouds

It could easily be said that my head has always been in the clouds. From my constant daydreaming whilst growing up, to then actually being able to study and work on atmospheric stuff when I got older. Now my head is returning to the clouds for my final project at college. My inspiration is from […]

A new year is coming

I can’t quite believe how busy this past year has been. Just a year ago I was just working away on my college projects and yarn club, weaving some scarves, as well as doing some teaching at Once A Sheep. Now, a year later, I’ve done lots more complicated college work, have a busy Yarn […]

My Weaving Studio is Open

After 2 van trips, a lot of sorting out, and emptying of my front room at home, I am now well and truly settled into my new studio and I’m just so happy it’s all happened. This is the back studio where I’ll be weaving and teaching my weaving and spinning classes. The space is […]

Space

So my plans on regular blogging have, as usual, fallen by the wayside a bit as life has majorly gotten in the way. The house decoration, as always, took a lot longer to complete, and this prevented me from being able to get near any looms for a while. They’ve all been found again and […]

Rush Hour

It’s been very busy here at Knit 1 Girl 1 over the past couple of months, and it’s felt like I’ve been in a perpetual rush hour. I’ve been teaching a couple of classes in weaving again at Once A Sheep. The first was another rigid heddle sample-it weaving day, which resulted in everyone being […]

Edinburgh Yarn Festival

I’ve been to a few yarn festivals now over the years, but Edinburgh Yarn Festival that was on this weekend was one of the maddest and fun ones I’ve been to. My friend Karen, who runs Once A Sheep yarn shop, decided to take a stall, after a bit of persuasion. She decided to take […]
