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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Saturday night is alright for dyeing

Saturday was the day I was going to dye. Unfortunately, the day turned into it’s usual way where I can barely get things done. So, once the child was tucked up nicely in bed I asked my husband Rob if he wanted to join me in a spot of dyeing. Now, Rob is a pretty […]

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 […]

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 […]

Warp speed

I think I’m finally getting this weaving thing right as I managed to get Vicky the Viking floor looms warp measured and beamed in about 2 hours or so. This is a world record for me and I hadn’t even messed any of the warp up. The warp is a red jute that I got […]

Weaving again:)

Hello and welcome to my blog. It’s been a while (well over a year) since I last blogged. Life kept on getting in the way and then lots of procrastination at the same time too. However, I am now back in the mind-set to blog about my random yarn-related fun. I’ll start off with the […]
