Sunsets and Showers – Yarn

After gathering all my photographic inspiration of the wintry sunsets and showers of West Kilbride, my next task was to find yarn. This is the fun bit in weaving as it means scouring through shade cards and websites, and then squishing lots of yarns. The choice of yarns is really important to me as I […]

Sky project

It’s coming up to the end of February so it must be time for me to head back down to Bradford for college. I’ve been having fun with my final project, which is based on the idea of the sky above you changing on a daily basis. The colours are of an ecru background with […]

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, […]

Rag rugs are great

I’ve managed to achieve my aim this week to get cracking on properly with the rag rugs on Vicky the floor loom. There’s a not so great aspect to rag rugs, and that’s making the rags. I got a rotary cutter at the Creative Stitches Show in Glasgow earlier this month and I understand now […]

Trying to overcome procrastination

Ok, so it’s February and my ideas of trying to blog regularly have gotten a tad waylaid yet again. But I have been busy procrastinating and creating various things in the meantime. First of all, 3 sheep decided to come into my workroom. These sheep were quite demanding and asked for shawls as it was […]
