    How to Weave with Lithuanian Linen from Midwinter Yarns

    During the summer the lovely Estelle at Midwinter Yarns got in touch with me to ask if I could weave a sample for them for their stand at shows using their Lithuanian Linen. This was very good timing as I had that day just been drooling over their linen Sweet Peas packs that they had […]

  • Commonwealth Weaving

    Last year I was asked by North Ayshire Council if I would be interested in working with schools to create a handwoven project based on sports activities that could be link to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. As I thought this would be a great opportunity, and good fun, I said “yes”. For the past […]

  • 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. The stash also got enhanced with a trip to and a visit from Jim the yarn man at college. Really happy I took the […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Ashford Sample-It Loom

    As always things have been rather busy. Much of January was spent working on my second project for college. That project is now done and dusted and I’m now working on my next project. In-between college work I also managed to grab a new Ashford Sample-It loom. This loom is very cute and cuddly and […]

    Winter has arrived nicely in time for the beginning of December. It’s turned very cold this past week and there’s snow on the tops of the hills. Thankfully this ties in nicely with my first proper collection of scarves that I’ve handwoven over the past two weeks. The idea I had for them was the […]

  • Bradford and other travels

    Apologies for the huge gaps in posts. I know I promised I would be better at this blogging thing, but it’s been a hectic few months. First of all I should have a quick mention about my trip to Woolfest. A group of us from the Guild and Once A Sheep invaded Cockermouths Travelodge at […]

  • Inspiration and Alpacas

    A bit of weaving has been done lately, although not as much as I would like. Other projects keep getting in the way and I sprained my foot by falling off the sofa (only I can do such things) which had me laid up for a few days. However, I have had a chance to […]

  • Flaming Wollmeise

    This post is all about me trying to do justice to a gorgeous skein of Wollmeise sock yarn that I bought at Knit Nation last year. It’s sitting on the particularly awesome Dr Who project bag that I got as well. I’m a sucker for orange and I’d been drooling over this colour way for […]
